Celebrity MasterChef fans fuming as Channel 5 leaks winner before episode airs

Celebrity MasterChef fans were left raging when a Channel 5 News bulletin revealed the winner of the first Christmas special before the episode had aired on BBC One.

For this year’s festive period, there are set to be two episodes of the celebrity version of the high-intensity cooking show.

In the first episode, airing tonight, the contestants in the kitchen included Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer Oti Mabuse, Loose Women panelist Judi Love, reality star Joey Essex, former professional footballer Neil Ruddock and actor Su Pollard, with Judi being crowned the winner.

However, before viewers had a chance to watch how the competition would unfold, the news on Channel 5 unveiled the winner in an unfortunate leak.

Channel 5 News apologised for the error in a statement shared on Twitter, which read: ‘We would like to say sorry for mistakenly announcing the winner of BBC1’s Celebrity Masterchef before it was revealed on the programme tonight. Apologies to all fans of the show.’

People who had tuned into the news on the channel immediately expressed their fury over the mishap, with one tweeting: ‘Well thanks, “not” for telling me who’s going to win the programme I’m about to watch on BBC 1!!!!’
