IF YOU’RE STRUGGLING in work post-bank holiday, take comfort in knowing that you’re probably having a better day than Prue Leith.

The Great British Bake Off judge accidentally revealed the winner of this year’s series, ahead of the highly anticipated final.

No one told me judging a #GBBO final would be so emotional. I wanted them all to win. Bravo *insert winner’s name here*.”

(Yeah, we’re not monsters).

It has now been revealed that the tweet was accidentally sent because Leith is currently holidaying in Bhutan, with apparent confusion over the different time zones.

Leith initially responded to the incident by saying that she is in “too much of a state to talk about it”.

In a follow-up tweet, she said:

Prue replaced Mary Berry when the show’s move to Channel 4 was announced last year.

Along with returning judge Paul Hollywood, she was also joined by Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig, who have presented the show for the first time ever following the departure of Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins.
