It turns out that Nadiya Hussain reacted to Prue Leith's huge Great British Bake Off finale spoiler just like the rest of the country did: she was utterly mortified.

The newest member of Bake Off's judging panel now has the unfortunate distinction of having accidentally leaked the winner of the show's first-ever series on Channel 4 hours before it aired on telly.

Because she was in another timezone, Prue apparently got mixed up and sent an early congratulatory tweet to Sophie Faldo, thus ruining literally months of build-up. As you do!

Former Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain was among those who had the result spoiled, and she weighed in on the controversy on The Jonathan Ross Show.

"I went and looked for the name of the person because once it's out, it's out," she recalled. "I remember just that moment thinking, 'Nobody in the world wants to be Prue right now,' and I felt so bad for her."

The baker added: "It would have been okay if it had been week three or four, you could live with that. It's horrible."

Way to rub it in, Nadiya! Prue has faced plenty of ribbing since her epic gaffe, including being teased by her own colleagues Prue Leith and Jo Brand on spin-off show The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice last week.

Luckily for the new judge, Sophie Faldo has made it clear that she has absolutely no hard feelings about having her crowning moment deflated.

"It didn't make any difference to me, but I suspect there are a lot of viewers that were a bit disappointed that it was spoilt," Sophie said this week. "I know how absolutely devastated Prue was about it."

The Jonathan Ross Show airs on Saturday at 9.40pm on ITV.
