UPDATE: Prue Leith just accidentally tweeted the winner of The Great British Bake Off

Mary Berry's mixed-review replacement, Prue Leith, has accidentally tweeted the winner of this year's Great British Bake Off ahead of tonight's final in a monumental cock-up.

In a horrific social media faux pas, Twitter rumours began circulating that Prue tweeted a congratulatory note to the winner, only to delete it within seconds.

Screenshots began to circulate that Prue tweeted the following:

'No one told me judging a #gbbo final would be so emotional," she wrote. "I wanted them all to win. Bravo *WINNERS NAME*.

The tweet was quickly removed, but not quick enough that the watchful eyes of Twitter missed it.

Let's just say, Twitter is having an absolute field day with it:

Prue Leith has since tweeted an apology for her blunder:
