Prue Leith accidentally reveals GBBO victor - and fans are having a meltdown


With the standard so
high this year,
we don't envy the judges having to pick a victor but Paul and Prue say they were in total agreement.

Commenting on her time in the tent, Faldo said: "It was very surreal, and I hadn't allowed myself to think that I could win it up to that moment in time when they said my name and then the enormity of it hit me".

Her Entrement cake for the final Showstopper challenge won heaps of praise from judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith, who loved her combination of lemon and lavender flavouring.

Prue has since spoken out about her upset regarding the blunder to the Press Association, admitting that she was in a "state" over her mistake.

The cookery legend took to Twitter this morning to congratulate the victor, 12 hours before the show airs on Channel 4. I thought that they got it six hours ago.

Fortunately for Channel 4, the semi-final was well received and picked up more than twice as many engagements as the previous episode, generating just shy of 48,000 engagements in total. "Why RT and spoil it for everyone?" wrote one fan of the show.

Some wags on Twitter even went so far as to suggest the deleted tweet was the work of the former judge.

Another tweet on her account reads: "It's the #GBBO final!"

If you don't want to know who... look away now!

Earlier this month, Prue admitted she wasn't sure if she would be asked back for a second series. "It could all change, like "The X Factor".
