Cash Trapped viewers raging as Tipping Point quiz question ‘repeated’ on show

ITV viewers weren't happy this afternoon as a similar quiz question was repeated on Tipping Point and Cash Trapped.

Airing right before Cash Trapped, Tipping Point contestants were asked about the origins of the West End musical Hamilton.

Less than an hour later, the guests on the new quiz show Cash Trapped were asked a very similar question.

On Tipping Point, contestants were asked: "Which 2017 West End musical is about the founding fathers?"

Later, on Cash Trapped, host Bradley Walsh asked the players which famous celebrity with the surname "Hamilton" had inspired the hit musical.

Taking to Twitter, viewers complained about the crossover and wondered how the two shows generated their brainy quiz questions.

One said: "Once again, a question overlap between Tipping Point and Cash Trapped, this time on Hamilton."
