TIPPING Point's Ben Shephard hit out at a contestant over her prize and told her 'don't turn your nose up at it'.

Thursday's edition of the ITV quiz show saw contestant Carla fail to make it through to the head to head round.

Ben said: "Carla, you gave it a great shot but I’m afraid with £650 you have found your tipping point."

She replied of her fellow contestants Nathan and Andrew: "The boys are just too good at the questions for me.”

In the earlier round, Carla had won a mystery prize, so wasn't going home completely empty-handed.

Ben told her: "“You know what though, you have won your bottomless brunch."

Carla admitted: “I forgot about that!” to which Ben hit back: “Don’t turn your nose up to the bottomless brunch.”

With a smile Carla replied: "Not at all", before the rest of the show continued without her.

In the end, it was Andrew who proved victorious, winning £10,000 in the final round.
