It’s been a staple in our teatime viewing schedules since 2012 - but now Tipping Point has been taken off the air, and we were wondering what on earth we were going to watch come 4pm this week!


Fear not, because the show will return to its usual slot from next Monday 26th June - so eager viewers will only be missing out on this week’s episodes.

Regular presenter Ben Shephard will also be back at the helm, as contestants compete to win a £10,000 cash prize.

But why isn’t it on this week? Read on to find out…

Why isn't Tipping Point on TV today?

While it’s usually on our screens every evening at 4pm, ITV have pulled Tipping Point and its follow-on programme The Chase this week, replacing them with coverage of the Royal Ascot Festival.

Royal Ascot coverage will air from 1:30pm until 6pm from Tuesday 20th June until Saturday 24th June.

When is Tipping Point back on TV?

Viewers don't have long to wait until Tipping point is back on our screens.

Ben Shephard will return for the show’s usual slot at 4pm on Monday 26th June.

In the popular game show, host Ben Shephard oversees each night's contestants, who answer questions to win turns on an arcade-style machine.

The more tokens they collect, the greater the prize fund – and the last contestant standing competes for a £10,000 jackpot.
