Tipping Point viewers in hysterics over player's mortifying Jeremy Corbyn blunder
TIPPING Point viewers were left in hysterics over a player's mortifying Jeremy Corbyn blunder yesterday afternoon.
Four new contestants returned to our screens in a bid to win the cash jackpot during Tuesday's instalment of the ITV show.
Insurance consultant Jordan got off to a flying start and managed to bag herself £300 going into the second round.
Things started to go down hill for the Nuneaton lass when host Ben Shephard asked her a question about US politics.
The presenter asked: "US politician Joe Biden served two terms as Vice President under which leader?"
The pressure must have got to her as she got her US and UK politicians mixed up and thought it was actually the UK's former Labour Party leader.
A flustered Jordan answered: "Jeremy Corbyn."
As soon as she said the wrong answer Ben revealed the correct answer, which is Barack Obama.
At the end of the round the pair joked about her huge mistake.
"Jeremy Corbyn… you found a politician," Ben said to try and make Jordan feel better.
She joked: "I'm pleased with that… yes, that is a result."
Fans of the game show flocked to Twitter to share their amusement over Jordan's slip up.
One joked: "Jeremy Corbyn was a President of the United States?!"
Another said: "Jeremy Corbyn??? Jesus Christ! How do these people get dressed in the morning?"
A third chimed in: Jeremy Corbyn? I have no words."
Corbyn served as Labour leader from 2015 to 2020, meanwhile Biden was Vice President from 2009 to 2017.
Tipping Point airs weekdays on ITV at 4pm
