Ben Shephard was gobsmacked as he claimed a player 'made Tipping Point history' with her controversial decision during Friday's episode.

Jacqui was one of four players taking part in the show as she competed against Brian, Mani and Abby in a bid to win mega money.

During her turn, she decided to pass a counter to her fellow player Brian, which left her missing out on a staggering £450.

Jacqui had managed to bag several counters, but sadly she didn't manage to push any coins over the machine's edge with them.

She then decided to pass her next counter to Brian, but this was a risky move as the machine had plenty of coins close to the edge.

Sure enough, Brian put the coin in and knocked a staggering nine counters across the Tipping Point, leaving Jacqui gutted.

She joked: "You owe me Brian!"

A stunned Ben remarked: "That is one of the most generous passes in Tipping Point history."

Brian seemed thrilled as Jacqui's move resulted in a staggering £450 being added to his prize fund.

Later, she was the first player to leave the competition after making just £50 in her round.

Viewers went into meltdown on Twitter, outraged over the player's move that cost her her place in the competition.

One said: "WHY JACQUI ????"

While another penned: "Why would Jacqui pass the counter? She didn't have to do that".

"No Jacqui, NOOOOOO…..", penned a third.

Abby was the next player to leave the competition, so it was just Brian and Mani left.

After a close round, Brian was victorious and made it through to the final round.

This meant he was in with the chance of winning the hugely sought after £10,000 jackpot.
