Prue Leith accidentally announces Great British Bake Off winner on Twitter
*Don’t worry – this article contains NO spoilers for tonight’s GBBO episode!*
Prue Leith has accidentally shared the winner of this year’s Great British Bake Off winner on Twitter, just hours before the final airs on Channel 4 tonight.
Poor Prue must be wanting the ground to swallow her up after congratulating the Bake Off winner on Twitter this morning.
“No one told me judging a #gbbo final would be so emotional,” she wrote. “I wanted them all to win. Bravo [name of winner]”
Obviously realising her mistake, the Bake Off judge quickly deleted her post. However, for those who had seen it, the damage had already been done.
Followers shared their dismay at being told the massive spoiler, with one user writing: “Prue Leith has just ruined tonight’s GBBO final for me and whoever else saw her tweet that’s just been deleted.”
Another added: “I can’t believe Prue just did that. I bet she was doing a scheduled tweet for later so she didn’t have to watch live.”

Prue Leith has just ruined all the goodwill built up by her excellent stylist. #GBBO fans, get off the Internet now until it airs.
