Christmas Day is so close we can almost taste the turkey and many of us are looking forward to some great festive TV - but the winner of the Strictly Come Dancing Christmas Special 2019 has been leaked online.

And, naturally, fans of the show are furious.

A number of viewers have taken to social media, claiming a member of the audience was behind the disclosure.

But don’t worry... we won’t be revealing who was named as the winner.

One angry social media tweeted, “This is so ridiculous. Why deliberately leak the results and spoil it for everyone?”

Another was furious when a troll tweeted them directly with the spoiler.

They said, "Someone who doesn't even follow me decided to deliberately ruin the Christmas show for me! Think before you tweet!"

Someone else added, “If you want the spoiler result of Christmas Strictly please dm and keep it off the timeline. So you don’t spoil it for others. Thanks.”

While another user agreed, tweeting, “Okay I decided I don't wanna ruin it for myself pls don't leak spoilers I wanna save the Strictly Christmas special for xmas cheers.”

Strictly Come Dancing judges

The festive episode will see Gemma Atkinson, Mark Wright, Joe Sugg, Chizzy Akudolu, Debbie McGee and Richard Arnold take to the dancefloor, to battle it out for the trophy.

It seems there will be some real-life couples in the Christmas episode, too.

Gemma will be teamed with with boyfriend Gorka and Joe will be paired with his girlfriend, Dianne.

Meanwhile, Debbie McGee will be partnered with Kevin Clifton and Chizzy Akudolu will dance with Graziano Di Prima.

It wouldn't be Strictly without Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly and, thankfully, the duo will be returning for the special show - alongside the four judges.

The festive edition of the BBC One show was filmed on 3 December, ready to be screened on 25 December.

Last year's Christmas episode was won by singer Aston Merrygold. He was partnered with Janette Manrara.

Strictly Come Dancing's Christmas special airs at 4.40pm on BBC One on 25 December.
