Obviously upset by her mistake, she told Press Association later: "I'm in Bhutan. I am in a different time zone and mortified by my error".

She has expressed regret after naming the victor of the Channel 4 show, saying: "I'm in Bhutan".

"I think I am pretty cool, calm and collected".

Sophie said of her win: "It was very surreal, and I hadn't allowed myself to think that I could win it up to that moment in time when they said my name and then the enormity of it hit me". I'm in too much of a state to talk about it.

Following the gaffe, some Bake Off fans were up in arms at finding out who has won before the show has aired on Channel 4.

"Nightmare!" Another joked: "I'd like to thank Prue Leith for tweeting who the GBBO victor is, because now I can watch United on the big telly with no guilt later".

The tweet was quickly deleted but not before people spotted it and reacted to it.

She pulled out all the stops for her final pièce de résistance by making a honey bee-themed version of a traditional Entremet cake.

Leith described it as "stunning", "beautiful" and "original", while co-judge Paul Hollywood said that he "loved it". "It could all change, like "The X Factor".

The gaffe is bound to cause consternation at Channel 4, which is paying £25m a year for Great British Bake Off, with "executives likely to be concerned that the revelation could depress viewing figures for the finale of the first series on the channel", says The Guardian.
