HOUSE of Games fans are convinced the celebrity guest ‘quit’ the episode as their co-star claimed a surprise win.
This week, host Richard Osman is joined by Strictly’s Katya Jones, hosted by Jane Middlemiss, a former cricketer Phil Tufnell and comedian Rob Deering.
Rob won the first two episodes and was looking for his hat trick on Thursday.
Funnyman led until the final round, Answer Smash, with Phil trailing by two points.
Phil managed to make the last one before the buzzer sounded and Richard signaled that it was a draw and both scored nine points each.
The host then showed them another Answer Smash, and Phil was the fastest to connect and get the answer right, giving him the win.
The former Question of Sport star stood up and celebrated as the rest of the celebrities applauded his first win.
But taking to Twitter, some House of Games fans were convinced that Rob had “quit” the game for some reason.
One wrote: “Come on @DeeringRob. Confession time. You dropped it, didn’t you?! #HouseofGames.”
Another added: “Toffers turn the week upside down; fast bowling tonight! #HouseofGames.”
A third tweeted: “Toofers win on the day with Zanzibarbell was brilliant 😂 #HouseofGames.”
But others were less than impressed with one caption: “#Houseofgames Current players have been completely disabled.
“Giving each other answers, having huge clues. It’s tiring.”
House of Games is broadcast on BBC Two and available on BBC iPlayer.
