Tipping Point host Ben Shephard wasn't impressed to see that a super fan had edited him into their wedding snaps – with Ben taking the place of the bride.

The ITV star, who also presents Good Morning Britain alongside Susanna Reid, couldn't quite contain himself as the relatives of a former contestant on the arcade-based game show edited his head onto the body of his bride.

The snap showed the groom beaming at the camera, looking dapper in a black suit with a grey cravat, while the body of a bride could be seen looking radiant in a plunging dress speckled with white feathers.

As the happy couple raised a toast of bubbly after exchanging vows, only one thing was off about the snap – Ben’s face edited onto the bride’s neck, sporting short hair and a matching grin as he looked as though he was turning to the camera lens.

The Twitter user responsible for sharing the snap on social media explained: "@benshephard my husband was on Tipping Point and it’s been a theme for presents for ages… my sister gave him this for Xmas yes it’s our wedding pic and she’s doctored it… he was delighted!"

Ben clearly didn't know quite what to say as he responded: "What fresh hell is this!" with a row of cry-laughing emojis and a blushing face.

His fans, however, clamoured to comment on the hilarious snap, as one said: "You must admit you look very cute as a bride though!"

Someone else joked: "I know that the 'natural' look is best for a Wedding, but a little bit of lippy & smokey eyes would have been better than nothing!"

"Still look lovely mate, she sounds like a right laugh, hope you and all your family have a blessed new year and a fantastic 2022!" another fan gushed.

While a fourth echoed: "OMG I love this… Ben you need to print it out and have one on your mantelpiece!"

Another former Tipping Point contestant chimed in: "Hilarious! Love it. As a past winner, wish I had thought of doing something like this for myself! Brilliant!"

It isn't the only odd tribute Ben has received during his time as a telly icon. He even featured in an episode of ITV soap Coronation Street – albeit as his face plastered all over a blanket toted by Mary Taylor.

And when actress Patti Clare appeared on a celebrity version of Tipping Point Lucky Stars, she couldn't resist turning up with her character's blanket in tow.

Speaking of his Corrie tribute, Ben said on GMB: "I'm thrilled to bits. I'm very flattered as well that somebody as discerning as Mary would feel like I could offer some sort of solace in these times and uncertainty."

Patti told him on the show: "It makes sense, don't you think? It Mary's world, being embraced by Ben is her idea of heaven.

"So she's put two and two together and come up with ten. And I think it's a brilliant idea.

"She could get a chain going of Ben products. But anyway, the blanket is the beginning."
