Tipping Point fans were left baffled by one "handsome" contestant's age blunder after he dropped a massive clanger on a children's TV related question.

Contestant Adam was facing off with fellow players Andy, Lorraine and Frankie to compete for the coveted jackpot counter on the popular ITV quiz show.

But he dropped himself in it with presenter Ben Shephard after he was quizzed about an iconic kids' TV programme – The Clangers.

Ben wanted to know what the mole-like pink creatures who lived on the Moon were called, but Adam admitted he had no idea.

"It was before my time, that, I think," he admitted.

The Clangers originally aired from 1969 until 1974 – but numerous repeats were shown well into the early 2000s.

In 2015, the show was rebooted and the knitted fan-favourites returned to the small screen for a brand-new audience.

And fans immediately flocked to Twitter to remark that Adam had really "dropped a clanger" in the blunder.

"He pulled a clanger by saying it was before his time!" one posted on Twitter, as another echoed: "Eh? Clangers before your time? I watched The Clangers!"

Another posted: "Before my time klaxon!"

"The Clangers? BEFORE YOUR TIME?!" a fourth baffled viewer echoed.

Another social media user wrote: "How does Ben keep a straight face with some of the absolute clangers of answers?"

However, others were more distracted by Adam's good looks, as they branded him "handsome".

One fan penned: "Handsome doctor Adam from Manchester on #TippingPoint!"

Another was surprised by the lack of "smutty" tweets about the doctor – and blamed it on his habit of passing during his first round of quick-fire questions.

However, Adam was unfortunately booted off the show following the last head-to-head – leaving Andy to compete for the jackpot counter.

He didn't go home empty handed, though, after securing a baking subscription box as a mystery prize from the Tipping Point machine.

Andy, meanwhile, didn't quite snag the jackpot counter, but went home with his own winnings.
