Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Louis Smith told off for spoiling the result!

Louis Smith (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing star Louis Smith has been told off by show bosses after he leaked the result of Sunday's episode.

The Strictly results show is pre-recorded on the Saturday, and producers have gone to great lengths to try and keep the result a secret.

But Olympic star Louis let the cat out of the bag yesterday when he tweeted his followers: "Wat an amazing but emotional roller coaster.

“So much luv for @FlaviaCacace & it’s so sad to say bye to @sidowen5 & @The_OlaJordan #crewlove.”

Louis quickly deleted the tweet, but the news spread quickly as others repeated the message.

A BBC source told The Sun newspaper today: “Saturday night can be quite overwhelming and emotional for the celebrities, especially when someone leaves the contest.

“Louis was so caught up in the show that he totally forgot that TV audiences — along with fans who follow him on Twitter — hadn’t seen the result.

“Luckily the tweet was noticed quickly and taken down, and the importance of keeping the show result secret has been impressed upon Louis."

The insider added: “He is embarrassed about it, but at the end of the day it was an honest mistake.”

Tune in to next week’s show on Saturday 3rd November at 6.30pm for Strictly Come Dancing with Strictly Come Dancing: The Results on Sunday 4th November at 7.20pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.
