Tipping Point viewers have slammed one contestant's "c**p" answer for an obvious catchphrase question.

Today's episode (August 25) of the ITV quiz show saw host Ben Shephard, 46, welcome four new contestants to the game.

Competing among them for the potential cash prize was teacher Jamie, who fumbled a pretty obvious question, much to Tipping Point viewers' dismay.

For the question, Ben asked: "In a commonly used phrase, a person who needs to improve their work or behaviour might be told to pull which items of clothing up?"

Jamie replied: "Sleeves."

His answer quickly drew laughs from his fellow Tipping Point competitors, with Jamie letting out a regretful groan as he realised his obvious error.

As most people would have guessed, the correct answer was actually "socks".

The mistake was also picked up on by Tipping Point fans, who quickly took to Twitter to share their dismay at Jamie's "c**p" answer.

One simply wrote: "Pull your sleeves up [cryface emoji]."

Another commented: "Sleeves? Ok Jamie."

A third responded: "It's not bad luck when it's a c**p answer!"

Another sarcastic viewer wrote: "I see Jamie the teacher did well!"

Another concluded: "Taxi for Jamie who didn't have a lovely day."

Unfortunately for Jamie, his streak of bad luck continued and he was the first of today's contestants to exit the show.

Left to compete alone at the end of the show was Sophie, who had a much better run and managed to walk away from the show with a whopping £10,000 prize.
