Tipping Point viewers saw the funny side as host Ben Shephard struggled to stop himself laughing about a contestant’s answer.
A player on Thursday’s instalment of the ITV game show was asked which UK political party shared its name with a collective noun for moles.
The answer was Labour, but as the lady was stumped she passed it onto another contestant to have a go.
Player number two was not sure either, but did tell Shephard: “For some reason, Liberal Democrats is screaming out to me...”
The camera then flashed back to the host, who replied “OK”, as he appeared to smirk and fight back the giggles.

Viewers were thoroughly amused by the star’s reaction.
“God help us, 10/10 Ben for your poker face!!” one person tweeted.
“I don’t know how @benshephard holds it together,” said another.
“Ben Shephard is challenged daily by not being allowed to laugh in these people’s faces on Tipping Point,” said one viewer.
Another posted: “Ben Shephard not laughing at answers on Tipping Point is the most difficult job on TV.”
The TV star had fans in stitches just a few days ago when a contestant was asked the name of a brand of chocolate sweets that were wrapped in eight different colours.
The player accidentally said “Coronation Street” instead of “Quality Street”, and Shephard struggled to keep a straight face.
