Tipping Point host Ben Shephard hits out at contestant over 'shocking behaviour'

It's shocking."Seeing his point, Rebecca couldn't help but agree with Ben's damning assessment of her game method as she laughed and responded: "It is shocking!"Unfortunately for Rebecca her inability to react swiftly saw her very quickly crash out of the show, becoming the first contestant to get booted off the show and missing her chance at the cash prize.Some viewers however were relieved to see the back of Rebecca as they felt she was a little too chatty for their liking.Taking to Twitter to complain about her commentary one viewer said: "You're out Rebecca.
