Tipping Point beauty wins over viewers but she gets ‘easy’ sport question wrong

Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter sees Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

Tipping Point viewers were left distracted by contestant Maisie during Friday's episode of the ITV quiz show.

Host Ben Shephard welcomed four contestants to the famous television studio as they battled it out to win the highly sought after cash prizes.

Maisie, Daniel, Thomasina and Martin all answered a series of questions to win turns on an arcade-style machine.

Dropping tokens down a choice of four chutes, they each hoped to knock piles of the counters off a moving shelf – the more they collected, the greater the prize fund.

Viewers were quickly distracted by music student Maisie and rushed to their keyboards to compliment the contestant.

Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "Hello Maisie" alongside a series of heart-eye emojis.

Another added: "Maisie looks lovely."

A third person wrote: "Awhh Maisie."

Things didn't go quite to plan for Maisie during the first round of the game show.

ITV star Ben, 46, asked the contestant: The final of the English Football Trophy is played each year at which national stadium?"

Maisie replied: "Anfield."

The presenter quickly informed the player that Anfield was the home of Liverpool Football Club and that the correct answer was Wembley Stadium.

Fans watching at home took to social media to discuss Maisie's major blunder.

One viewer tweeted: "Anfield? National football stadium? Ffs Maisie."

A second person typed: "Anfield? Um what?"

Another person added: "After that stupid answer she should be made to give all her counters away."

"That national stadium. Anfield," a fourth fan joked.

Despite her stumble on the sports question, Maisie managed to make it through to the second round.

However, Maisie was sent packing just before the third stage of the competition.

Thomasina was the lucky player who made it through to the final round.

She told Ben that she'd love to go back to Australia if she was lucky enough to go home with any money from the show.
