Bake Off star Prue Leith speaks about Twitter gaffe at TRIC Awards
And Prue Leith admitted she now holds herself back from the social networking site for fear she'll accidentally repeat the TV sin, which she revealed people suspected was a deliberate move between herself and Channel 4.
Speaking to MailOnline at the TRIC Awards, the 78-year-old food critic spoke about the nightmare moment, which saw her accidentally reveal that Sophie Faldo had won the series the morning before the final aired.
'I might lock myself in a dark room': Prue Leith admitted she always approaches Twitter with caution following her epic Great British Bake Off blunder last year, which saw her accidentally reveal the winner
She confessed: 'Every now and then I may hold back from Twitter.
'I might lock myself in a dark room. People ask if I and channel 4 cooked that tweet up and of course I didn't.'
Prue put the gaffe down to her being in Bhutan at the time, which is six hours ahead of the UK.

The star, who took over from host Mary Berry when the show switched from the BBC to Channel 4, also revealed she has been putting her own stamp on things by devising her own challenges with co-host Paul Hollywood.
She dished: 'Paul and I had a meeting about the new series and cooked up the challenges for the new series.'
The restaurateur also assured there was no bad blood between herself and Mary, admitting that the 82-year-old has been a real support to her.

She explained: 'Mary Berry has been so great and it's wonderful that she has the chance to go off and do new things and she's really enjoying her new show.'
Prue and Paul have recently returned to screens for the celebrity edition of The Great British Bake Off, which aims to raise money for Stand Up to Cancer.
Celebrities taking part include Teri Hatcher, Stacey Soloman, Alan Carr, Mel Sykes and Bill Turnball.
