Prue Leith accidentally reveals there is no God

BAKE-OFF judge Prue Leith has accidentally tweeted conclusive proof that God is dead and you are going to burn in Hell forever.

The tweet, sent at 10.37am yesterday morning and swiftly deleted, included a photograph of the Judeo-Christian deity’s grave alongside the message “The Horned One has won and the universe is his! Nobody told me I would feel so emotional #GBBOfinal #kissthehoof”.

Hundreds of Bake-Off fans have hit out at the septuagenarian for ruining their enjoyment of their earthly lives by revealing that they face an eternity of torment.

Julian Cook tweeted: “Thanks Prue, I was looking forward to retirement until I found out I’d be burning in a lake of fire for untold millennia!” while Emma Bradford agreed, “why have I bothered living for the last few decades when it’s all been ruined for me??? #GBBOfinal”.

Retired headmistress Margaret Gerving summed up the thoughts of many when she tweeted: “This would never have happened on the BBC! #GBBOfinal #bringbackMary”.

Leith said: “I honestly cannot apologise enough. I just hope all the fans will enjoy what should be a wonderful last few years on this plane before it becomes the dominion of my satanic master.”
