The Strictly Come Dancing 2012 results are being leaked on Twitter, to the frustration of producers.

The pre-recorded results show means that the elimination outcome is known a day before it airs on telly, and bosses fear it'll cause millions of viewers to skip the Sunday show.

While blogs like this are banned from revealing the result, Twitter users have been been posting the outcome after attending the recording.

The Sunday show has been pre-rercorded for many years, straight after Saturday's live show, but the increase in social networks now means that the result is also online the same day.

A show source told the Daily Star Sunday: “Once fans know the result they’re unlikely to bother tuning in. Information spreads like ­wildfire on Twitter so this could prove a major problem for the show.”

The insider added: “Strictly is now the biggest show on telly, so keeping results quiet is going to be almost impossible.

“Staff ban the studio audience from using mobile phones during the recording but obviously some are going home and posting it.

“Now it’s the most talked-about show on the box so people are going to be desperate to know who’s out.”

With 12,000 people watching next month's Wembley special, it's fair to say that hiding the result will be hard.

Strictly Come Dancing continues tonight with the latest results show, where two more celebs will face the dance off and one will get the boot.
