It's supposed to be kept secret until tonight but judge Prue Leith may have spoiled the results of the Great British Bake Off by revealing the name of the winner before the final has aired.
The trained chef and restaurateur appears to have named the 2017 champion as former Army officer Sophie Lando in a now-deleted tweet.
The tweet from Prue's unverified account at 10.37am read: 'No-one told me judging a GBBO final would be so emotional. I wanted them all to win. Bravo Sophie.'
Prue Leith has admitted it was her, expressing regret for the incident, saying: 'I’m in too much of a state to talk about it.'
It was screenshotted by The Sun's TV Editor Andy Halls, who responded: 'OOPS!'Let's block ads! (Why?)
