ITV Sitting on a Fortune fans baffled as player makes Bermuda Triangle blunder

Sitting on a Fortune viewers were left scratching their heads as one contestant made a major geography blunder.

Host Gary Lineker was back on our screens on Sunday night to present his new ITV primetime game show.

The format sees players attempt to stay in the money chair for a chance to win a massive jackpot.

There's no lifelines, safety nets or chances to walk away meaning contestants must risk everything on getting the right answer in the hope of taking home the big prize.

The pulse-quickening general knowledge quiz features six players all trying to be in the right place at the right time to take away a potentially life-changing amount of money.

In a unique twist, players take to the stage and position themselves in a row of seats, one behind another.

Where you sit makes all the difference during the show as only the player in the chair at the head of the line gets the chance to answer questions, stay in the game and have the chance of winning the jackpot.

One wrong answer sees a player relegated to the back of the line and in real danger of leaving with nothing and someone else moves up to take pole position.

Contestants sit in chairs behind each other on the set. Only the contestants in the money chair answer the questions.

Things didn't go quite to plan for contestant Manjit as she stumbled on a Geography question.

Gary asked the player: The infamous Bermuda Triangle is located in which body of water?

The possible answers for the multiple choice question were Dead Sea, Atlantic Ocean, Bay of Bengal or Loch Ness.

Manjit replied: "Between Dead Dead and Loch Ness I would say"

Gary reminded her: "This is for a place in the final and a chance to possibly win £100,000.

Manjit later decided to go for Loch Ness, but Gary quickly informed her the correct answer is Atlantic Ocean.

Viewers watching at home rushed to their keyboards to discuss Manjit's blunder.

Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: Watching Sitting on a Fortune and someone actually answered that the Bermuda Triangle was in Loch Ness. Speechless!"

Another added: "30 seconds of Sitting on a Fortune on ITV….apparently the Bermuda Triangle is in Loch Ness! Enough."

A third person posted: "Sitting on a Fortune. One contestant thinks the Bermuda Triangle is in Loch Ness."

While a fourth social media user said: "WTF have I just seen on Sitting on a Fortune. The Bermuda Triangle is situated in which body of water? She answers Loch Ness."

A wrong answer meant Manjit had to move to the back of the line and all other contestants moved up one place towards the money chair.

The contestant in the back chair chooses the category for the contestant in the front chair.

Players on the back chair face a dilemma in that they may want to help the contestant in the front, as correct answers keep the jackpot high.

However, they also may want to hinder, as a wrong answer means they move up a position and become closer to the money chair themselves.

Sitting on a Fortune continues on ITV next Sunday
