    Tipping Point viewers were left raging on Monday (May 19) after a “useless” player made a rather awkward machine blunder.

    The hit ITV gameshow was back on TV screens as host Ben Shephard welcomed three new players onto the show.

    As fans tuned in for the primetime programme, the GMB star introduced contestants Linda, Andy and Aarti before they battled it out to take bag some serious cash.

    But when it came to Linda’s attempt to take on the machine – things took a rather awkward turn – with even host Ben left floored.

    Despite doing relativity well in the first round, Linda’s luck appeared to run out when it came to taking on the famous machine.

    As she unfortunately found herself getting not one, but three riders in the machine.

    “Oh no it’s not a rider again,” she fumed, watching her second coin drop into the machine.

    Ben was equally as frustrated, as he proclaimed: “Oh Linda! Come on, one more.”

    But her final attempt didn’t go to plan either, with Ben quipping: “Linda! Three riders in a row!”

    And Linda’s blunder didn’t go amiss from the show’s loyal legion of fans watching the programme at home.

    Taking to Twitter, one person fumed: “Linda what can I say …THAT WAS TOTAL B****X”

    A second agreed: “Linda having an absolute mare with timing on her drops. Has she never watched the program?”

    “F*****g timing, Linda! It’s sh*t!” proclaimed a third viewer, as someone else quipped: “Dear god!! Useless.”

    Despite her unfortunate first round, Linda managed to bag a place in the next round – beating out actor Andy.

    Along with Aarti, the two carried on playing the game in a bid to take home some cash.

    But it was Aarti who came up triumphs – bagging £2400 and becoming the latest episodes champ.

    This meant Linda, who only managed to bag £950, had to walk away empty-handed.

    In the final round, Aarti added even more dosh to her jackpot – bringing the total sum to £2950.

    However she decided to take the money and not trade.
