Tipping Point fans enraged as they say theyve had enough after major shake up
Tipping Point viewers have taken an evident disliking to the new show format and have threatened to switch off.
Ben Shephard's popular quizzing programme returned for a brand new series on Monday (April 11) which many die-hard fans couldn't wait to see.
But spectators were left perplexed when they realised the show had gone through various changes that many were unaware of.
One of the major disparities with the new series is that there are now only three contestants playing instead of four and no elimination after the first round.
The quick-fire question round has also been tweaked with contestants given 45 seconds to answer their questions instead of the usual 30 seconds.
Despite the drastic changes which some seemed to like, on Thursday a number of viewers claimed they had "enough".
Taking to Twitter, one annoyed spectator said: "Had enough. Bye tippers."
Another disgruntled viewer commented: "Can't watch this."
A third said: "Hate the new format!! 3 contestants at the start then ALL go through to the next round, just c**p! Way too much talking between contestants!! That’s us done!! Will have to find something else to watch, should be easy though!!"
While a fourth added: "Oh I see, so after the first round, nobody is eliminated. Such c**p."
During Thursday's episode, contestants Andrew, Angie and Darien didn't get off to the best of starts as they seemed to not know many of Ben's questions.
The Tipping Point machine wasn't exactly delivering the goods for the players as not many counters dropped when given the nudge.
Despite this, Darien seemed to have luck on his side and quickly took the lead winning £1,400.
However, Andrew managed to overtake Darien in the third round and sailed through to the end after answering a series of Ben's questions correctly.
But as he took on the Tipping Point machine things became very touch and go for the player.
Regardless of this, the confident contestant believed he could win big and decided to trade the £2,600 he had already earnt for a chance to take home the jackpot prize.
Luckily for Andrew, it was a great decision and he ended up walking away with £10,000.
