Prue Leith called it: Sophie Faldo was the official winner of “The Great British Bake Off.” And the news came as a complete surprise to the millions of viewers of the popular British Channel 4 series.

In what has become one of TV’s worst spoilers, Leith blew the show’s secret hours before the winner was supposed to be announced, The Telegraph reported.

The blunder took place on Tuesday when baking judge Leith tweeted: “No one told me judging a GBBO final would be so emotional. I wanted them all to win. Bravo Sophie.”

She quickly deleted the post and issued an apology, explaining that the error occurred due to a confusion of time zones, adding that she was “mortified” by her error.

It didn’t take long for a string of memes to emerge, poking fun at the already humiliated Leith.

Faldo has since told BBC that she harbors no hard feelings towards Leith.

"That did come as a little bit of a surprise," she said. “All it meant for me was that everyone knew a little bit too early. I really do feel bad for Prue because she must be feeling terrible about it."

“The Great British Bake Off” winner added that she was in contact with Leith to "put her mind at ease and make sure she knows there are no hard feelings."

And while much of the focus was on the blunder, the great reveal was not enough to stop about 8.3 million viewers from tuning in to series’ final on Tuesday, BBC reported.
