A judge on the Great British Bake Off, a widely watched television cooking competition in the UK, has been forced to apologize after revealing the winner hours before the final episode was scheduled to air.
Prue Leith posted the name of the winner on her Twitter feed while traveling in Bhutan, which is six hours ahead of Britain, thinking that fans had already seen the last installment.
I am so sorry to the fans of the show for my mistake this morning, I am in a different time zone and mortified by my error #GBBO.

Poor Prue’s adorable, little accident reminds us of some other hilarious internet mishaps that took place in 2017.
Mark Ruffalo accidentally livestreams Thor
Remember when everyone’s favourite Mark Ruffalo wreaked havoc by accidentally livestreaming the first 15 minutes of Thor: Ragnarok straight from the premier? Adorable. His excuse? Some “Marvel guy” asked him if he could go live on Instagram and he obviously agreed. What the guy couldn’t notice was that Ruffalo wasn’t the most tech-savvy person in the room. What transpired gave us another why Ruffalo needs to protected.
When HBO accidentally aired a Game Of Thrones episode way ahead of its scheduled slot
After surviving an epic onslaught on their security system, HBO accidentally aired episode 6 from Game of Thrones season 7 in Spain. The channel later acknowledged the error and but the party was far from over. Come to think of it, 2017 has kinda been the golden era of internet mishaps.
When James Franco slid into a teenager’s DM asking if he could rent a room in her hotel…
If you’re sad and single, remember that James Franco once casually slid into a regular teenager’s DMs and asked her if she was single. On being asked about the incident on a popular talk show, Franco said, “It’s the way that people meet each other today, but what I’ve learned — I guess because I’m new to it — is you don’t know who’s on the other end.” No sh*t.
