Your friend is correct though this has not always been a Tipping Point rule. From series 8 if a contestant drops the jackpot counter alongside a double counter the jackpot of £10,000 will be doubled to £20,000. I have watched a contestant win this once, though I am not sure if it has only happened once or more as it's not a show I get to watch all the time.
