However, with the jackpot counter hanging agonisingly over the edge, Donall ran out of counters.
But in true Tipping Point style, Ben offered Donall the chance to trade in the £3,850 he’d accumulated for three extra counters.
Donall was torn as to what to do given how close the counter was to the edge but ultimately played safe and took his £3,850.
However, he was left ruing his decision as the very first counter put into the machine after as they played out the now-hypothetical scenario knocked the jackpot off.
Tipping Point continues weekdays at 4pm on ITV.
