Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter sees Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

Ben Shephard was left with his jaw on the floor on Sunday evening's episode of Tipping Point Lucky Stars, as celebrity contestant Fern Britton made a cheeky comment about Eamonn Holmes.

The This Morning legend introduced herself as having worked with a "handsome" man, piling on compliments as the camera cut to Ben looking pretty smug.

She said: "I'm Fern Britton, I'm a presenter and author and in the last 40 odd years I've interviewed and worked with some incredible men, but I think the most handsome, talented and brilliant of them has been Eamonn Holmes."

However instead of saying she was talking about buff Ben, the 63-year-old cheekily said she was actually talking about Eamonn Holmes.

Good Morning Britain star Ben was stunned, however when Fern suggested that could change by the end of the show, Ben told her he'd "look after" her.

And it seems he stuck to his word, as Fern ended up knocking both Love Island host Iain and Made in Chelsea star Mark-Francis out of the competition.
