On Wednesday, May 4, just before the show aired, it was reported that one of the participants, Cath, had passed away. The Bolton lady competed against Afqad and Mark for a chance to win a £10,000 prize. According to Wales Online, Cath was the first to be knocked out, leaving Afqad and Mark to fight for the reward.
As of current, her actual cause of death is not yet known. We are yet to confirm what actually led to the death of the retired bus driver from Bolton who also happens to be a Tipping Point Contestant.
