'Bake Off' judge Prue Leith accidentally revealed the winner ahead of tonight's final

Prue leith Getty/ Stuart C. WilsonPrue Leith is a judge on the Great British Bake Off.

Great British Bake Off judge Prue Leith has accidentally revealed the winner of this year’s show ahead of tonight’s final.

In a tweet earlier this morning, Leith said she wanted all three to win, but congratulated one of them with “bravo,” according to the BBC.

She quickly deleted the Tweet, and has since apologised for her giant gaff, blaming it on confusion from being in a different timezone. She has apparently been travelling in Bhutan.

Tonight’s final will see either Steven Carter-Bailey, Kate Lyon, or Sophie Faldo be crowned the winner.

“I am so sorry to the fans of the show for my mistake this morning, I am in a different time zone and mortified by my error #GBBO,” her latest Tweet read.

It has prompted an outburst of tweets, GIFs, and memes from fans, some claiming to understand that “mistakes happen,” while others are a little more disappointed.

Tonight’s final will air at 8.p.m. on Channel 4.
