An Enniskillen man who starred in yesterday’s (Wednesday) episode of smash hit gameshow ‘Tipping Point’ on ITV has reflected on his experience.

Gary Quinn, who hails from Enniskillen but now lives in Newcastle, looked back on his time on the show, presented by Ben Shephard, which airs on weekdays at 4pm.

Although he didn’t wish the overall cash prize, he placed a respectable second.

Gary was impressed with the studio fit-out, but noted that he found questions on the show hard at points.

He said: “In hindsight, I thought ‘I know that’ [the answer to the question], but with the pressure and stuff, it’s difficult. Obviously you get a bit more nervous because of the camera, and realise ,’Oh I’m on a game show’, which I didn’t anticipate!”

Revealing the process behind getting on the show, Gary said: “It wasn’t just a case of applying and you’re on the show – I had to go to an audition and a group activity, and all this kind of thing.

“Then they tested your general knowledge and how you are on camera, and you had to stand up, and talk about yourself.”

It has been a long road to the TV episode for primary school teacher Gary, who actually first auditioned for the show all the way back in January, 2020.

However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, there was an extensive delay in filming.

Readers may be surprised to learn that the episode which aired yesterday, on January 25, was actually filmed all the way back in April, 2021, during the Easter holidays!

Gary was also delighted to win a spot prize of a hot air balloon experience, which he is yet to redeem.
