Tipping Point fans were left frustrated after one contestant constantly spoke over host Ben Shephard during a recent episode of the ITV game show.

Ben welcomed three new hopefuls up to their podiums and the contestants took their positions as he introduced them to the audience.

However, as home viewers settled in for a night in front of their favourite game show, something began to irk many of the show's fans and Twitter was ablaze with comments.

One contestant, named Ben, repeatedly interrupted host Ben while he spoke.

The habit became too much for some viewers who took their frustration to Twitter and a slew of tweets quickly came through.

One annoyed fan wrote: "Ben… please for all that is holy, shut the f*** up!"

Another tweeted out: "Is there an echo or is it Ben talking over Ben?"

A clearly angry viewer also typed: "Bloody hell, Ben, shut up!"

Host Ben also presents ITV's early morning news programme Good Morning Britain and recently shared his unexpected connection to rapper Coolio.

It has been reported that Coolio died of cardiac arrest aged just 59-years-old and during a segment on GMB, Ben opened up about his experience with the Gangster's Paradise musician.

He told co-presenter Susanna Reid: "In one of those brilliantly random television and showbiz collisions – between the world of hardcore rap and light entertainment – Coolio was on one of the first episodes [of Tipping Point] back in 2013."

GMB then played a clip of Coolio on the ITV gameshow and Susanna questioned him about the star.

She asked Ben whether he had a moment that he realised he was playing with "the Grammy award winning, billion streams on Spotify" rapper.

Shephard then smiled and admitted that "it felt like a very natural fit" and noted that the "really lovely thing was that they filmed the episodes in a block," which meant that "they were all staying in the same hotel".

He then revealed that "Cami was doing an episode as well" and later that evening, Ben "went to meet Cami for a drink," who was also "having a drink in Wimbledon with Coolio" at the time.
