The host of the ITV game show was stunned when a contestant named Josh hilariously misinterpreted a question and thought the Loch Ness monster was the answer.
Ben Shepherd was left in stitches when a contestant on the TV game show Tipping Point thought the Loch Ness monster was a type of snake.
The host of an ITV gameshow struggles to control himself after being asked to name a breed of snake native to Britain that is a member of the viper family.
A Manchester student, Josh would be the winner, was convinced he knew the answer and hit his buzzer first – but blurred out “The Loch Ness Monster” when the camera turned towards him.
Ben, who was in front of Channel Four’s Without Breakfast, suppressed a laugh that soon broke out and he passionately said that he was, unfortunately, wrong, struggling to get back.

On the show, which aired today at 4 p.m., Ben asked: “A member of the Viper family, which native British snake has red eyes and a distinct zig-zag type pattern?”
Josh, who had £0 in bank at the time, said: “The Loch Ness Monster.”
A laughing Ben then said: “This is not a Loch Ness monster. Which native British snake has red eyes and a distinctive zig-zag type pattern down its back? Not Loch Ness.
“Eder, that’s what I was looking for. I enjoyed your answer far more though.”

Meanwhile, a Cheetos crisp in the shape of the Loch Ness Monster has gone up for sale on eBay – for a staggering £630,000.
The seller determined there would be ‘no return’, and urged bidders to ‘buy with confidence’ as they placed their offer on the incredibly expensive crisp.
There are two crisps available in the size of the Loch Ness Monster – and the other one costs over £210.
Both are being sold in the United States, and the overpriced seller said that if it sells, it could become one of the most expensive crisps ever sold.
