Tipping Point’s ‘strict wardrobe’ rule
Sharing her experiences on her blog, which was revealed by The Sun, she said: “We had to take 5 tops and 2 bottoms – no white, no pastels, no black, no small patterns, etc.
“I popped into GAP and bought three different colours of the same top – and wasn’t allowed to wear any of them!
“You can’t wear high heels either (Health & Safety) although my friend Sue reckons height gives you a decent advantage in seeing the counters…”
She also said that although players arrive to the studio with their own makeup, the makeup team adds some touches.
Di added that contestants receive absorbent underarm pads to prevent sweat marks.
The former player also revealed that despite filming in May 2016, her episode was aired in October 2017.
Di was reportedly told that it would only take 12 months for the episode to air. Therefore, she felt “frustrated” when it took 17 months.
She was also told that she couldn’t go on another gameshow until after six months of her episode airing.
