Not even The Great British Bake Off is safe from spoilers, after judge Mary Berry seemed to accidentally let slip which contestant bids the tent farewell in tonight's episode.
*This article contains spoilers*
The 80-year-old made the unforgivable (seriously, we're distraught) mishap during a live interview with Chris Evans on the DJ's Radio 2 Breakfast Show this morning, shocking listeners and making everything highly awkward.
"Well, we've already lost two, you don't hang around do you, Mary?" Evans said, to which Berry replied: "Wait a minute, we've lost three. We lost Marie last week, Dorret and on the first week it was our lovely chap with his little hat on."

It sounds impossible, but the great meltdown of series five involving Iain, Diana, and the hottest day of 2014 so far was more controversial than Custardgate. It ended when Iain binned the remains of his Baked Alaska and stormed out of the tent
2/7 GBBO gaffes
The bread basket challenge in series two had many bakers scratching their heads. Worst off was poor Janet, whose basket collapsed as soon as she took it out of the oven

It's not even clear what this biscuit bake was supposed to look like, but series one contestant Louise said it was supposed to be heart-shaped. It's definitely not
5/7 GBBO gaffes
More of a camera gaff than a baking one: this squirrel made headlines for all the wrong reasons in series two when it found itself on national television. Complaints were made over the fact that the image failed to come with a "may contain nuts" warning
6/7 GBBO gaffes
Poor Yasmin in series two had a mini breakdown when her macarons failed to rise. Everyone else was more concerned about the dodgy shade of green. 'I didn't realise I'd get this emotional with baking,' said Yasmin. None of us did, Yasmin. None of us did
7/7 GBBO gaffes
The curse of the soggy bottom struck one unlucky contestant in the form of this zingy tart from series three. Mary Berry pursed her lips over how much lime zest had been used, while Paul Hollywood just looked disappointed at the poor quality of pastry on offer
Berry, who was discussing the upcoming Bread Week challenge, did not immediately realise her error, leaving Evans to quickly try and cover it up.
"But you've only lost two so far. There's another one tonight, you know that but we don't," he said, before laughing and moving the topic of conversation on to talk about how baking is like science in its precision.
Of course, many fans noticed what had happened and were left crying into their cereal.
