The eagerly anticipated Strictly Come Dancing results show sees viewers tuning in in their millions to find out if their favourite has survived.
But Sunday Brunch fans were shocked as Michaela Strachan appeared to reveal who had become the fifth celebrity to leave the sequin filled dancefloor, in the third elimination gaffe this month.
During a chat on the popular show, the Really Wild Show presenter seemed to indicate that chef Simon Rimmer was the latest casualty of the dancefloor before backtracking in horror.

Filmed on Saturday night, Simon turned out to be the latest evictee following a dance-off with Mollie King, which was aired on Sunday night, hours after Michaela’s gaffe.
Speaking to Simon’s co-host Tim Lovejoy on the chef’s Halloween Viennese Waltz Michaela said: ‘First of all, I’m not talking to you Simon, because I’ve been trying to get on Strictly Come Dancing for 10 years. They won’t have me. Then there you are!
Continuing her critique, the star said: ‘I’m going to be a little bit judgemental and say that last night’s performance – you put your heart and soul into it – you looked like you were playing a part in Sweeney Todd, quite frankly.

‘You were very stiff, there was still a lot of room for improvement.’
Guest Mark Gatiss rushed to Simon’s defence, saying he’d ‘done brilliantly to get to Week Six.’
But there was no stoppingf Michaela who said ‘I’m amazed you got to week six – oh, did I say that out loud? That was meant to be in my head.’

The studio fell silent after this comment, followed by some awkward smiles from the presenters.
Fans on Twitter veered between thinking Michaela was criticising Simon’s dance skills to questioning whether she had revealed who had been eliminated.

The 58-year-old made the gaffe on her BBC Radio Berkshire show on Sunday morning ahead of the results show airing, which was filmed the evening before.
She told her listeners: ‘Very sad to see Richard go, the Reverend…’ before realising her mistake and trying to backtrack by saying ‘He fell over at one point so he went and had to be treated so we’re waiting to hear what happens in the results show tonight.’
And a week later, Ruth Langsford happily shared the news that she had sailed through to next week’s show with pro dancer Anton du Beke before the results show aired, leaving fans ‘furious’.
