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

Tipping Point fans were left distracted during Wednesday's programme by one contestant's dashing good looks.

Contestant John made it through to the final head-to-head, but viewers were left distracted from his impressive general knowledge by his "easy on the eye" good looks – and resemblance to a certain Puerto Rican singer.

One eager fan compared John to Livin' La Vida Loca crooner Ricky Martin as they swooned over the bearded hunk.

But others thought he more closely resembled SAS Who Dares Wins star Ant Middleton with his extensive facial hair.

"I've given it some thought," one hyped-up fan gushed. "I would definitely give John a go."

Someone else posted to social media: "John is quite easy on the eye!", as another echoed: "I think I fancy John!"

"Oooh John and his beard!" penned a fourth Tipping Point fan, while someone else said: "John is a babe!"

Unfortunately, Ben was beaten to a spot in the final by fellow contestant Katie despite an impressive performance during the quick-fire round, leaving viewers devastated.

"John didn't have a lovely day," one disappointed viewer tweeted.

There could be a slight consolation for him, though, as one fan said that they'd "love to have a pint with John!"

Katie admitted she'd love to buy a boat if she were to secure the jackpot counter from the Tipping Point machine, leading host Ben Shephard to say he hasn't heard of a boat as a mystery prize on a game show since Bullseye.

Wednesday's programme had many viewers irritated as players were constantly drawn to Drop Zone one – despite there being plenty of counters hanging on the tipping point in Drop Zone two.

Tipping Point host Ben Shephard recently shared a previously unseen snap of himself in his younger days to celebrate the HBO Friends Reunion special.

During the 2002 segment, Ben had originally been enlisted to interview show co-creator Marta Kauffman, the Tipping Point presenter was asked if he'd like to appear as an extra on the iconic sitcom.

He could later be seen within the gabble of press at Joey Tribbiani's (Matt LeBlanc) film premiere.

Ben discussed the segment on a recent episode of Good Morning Britain, in which his co-host Kate Garraway couldn't resist poking fun at him.

"I like the way you glance over your shoulder for verification!" Kate giggled, referencing how Ben had looked for permission from his fellow cast-members before accepting the offer.
