Tipping Point contestant makes history by winning double jackpot

Tipping Point had its first-ever jackpot winner last night with contestant Clive managing to walk away from the ITV game show with a massive £20,000.

In an incredible feat, Clive knocked a double jackpot token out of the Coin Dozer style machine, Mirror Online reports.

Overwhelmed with the win, the sweet man welled-up with emotion and struggled to get his words out as he hugged show host Ben Shephard.

When the silver token was tipped out of the tray Ben screamed: "Clive you’ve done! I can’t believe you have done it!"

Gobsmacked Clive replied: "I am not over! I've never… Thank you so much!"

Ben added: "Clive, I have stood in front of this machine over a thousand times, the only time that has happened was when it was on a tray that didn’t get taken! You have won £20,000, Clive!"

They hugged before Clive exclaimed: "I am welling up!"

"How does that feel Clive?" Ben quizzed.

As he kept threw his head back to stop his tears, he said: “Fantastic!”
