The 77-year-old cooking supremo revealed on Twitter the results hours ahead of broadcast, before quickly deleting the post when she realised the mistake.

Many took to social media to hit out at Prue with one audience member saying: “No point watching #GBBOFinal GBBOFinal.”

“Don't see the point of watching #GBBOFinal now I know who wins. Zumbos Just Desserts on Netflix is much better thankfully,” complained a third.

Nevertheless, others continued to tune in despite the spoiler, tweeting: “Watching #GBBOFinal knowing who's won almost doesn't seem worth it.”
