TIPPING Point was sensationally pulled off the air by ITV yesterday.
Fans of the teatime quiz favourite were left disappointed when it failed to air in its regular slot.
Fronted by Ben Shephard, the show usually airs each weekday at 4pm.
However, owing to this week's coverage of the horse racing, ITV bosses were forced to scrap airing yesterday;s episode in order to focus on the live sporting event.
Often when the broadcaster shows coverage of the live equestrian events, such as the Grand National, the quiz show can usually be found in an alternative timeslot but fans were left disappointed when ITV decided to axe airing the show altogether yesterday.
It meant that viewers were forced to go without their late afternoon quizzing fix.
