Emmerdale's Lucy Pargeter leaves Ben Shephard floored with swipe at beloved BBC star on Tipping Point | The Sun

EMMERDALE actress Lucy Pargeter admitted she has never heard of a popular BBC actor during her appearance on a celebrity special of Tipping Point.

The ITV quiz show welcomed three famous faces to compete in an attempt to win some money for their chosen charities.


Ben Shephard, 48, watched over proceedings as Lucy, 45, was joined by comedian Sara Pascoe and rugby legend Joe Marler.

One of Lucy's answers proved to be a stand out moment for show host Ben when she revealed she has never heard of actor Aidan Gillen from Game of Thrones and also known for his performance in popular BBC drama Peaky Blinders.

Lucy had managed to beat off the stiff competition from Sara and Joe for a chance to win a staggering £20,000 for the charity, Women's Aid.

During her final round, Ben asked the Emmerdale star: "In the HBO series Game of Thrones, the character Petyr Baelish, played by Aidan Gillen, is known by what other name?"
