Chrissy Teigen apologises after tweeting The Voice victory

Chrissy Teigen has apologised to fans after tweeting the winner of The Voice on Tuesday night.

Chrissy's husband John Legend acted as a judge on the U.S. TV show for the first time this year, and emerged victorious during the finale on Tuesday with his act Maelyn Jarmon.

Following the win, the former model shared a video of John and Maelyn celebrating, and tweeted: "this is literally the happiest I’ve ever seen John ever????"

After her tweet, many of Chrissy's followers slammed her for revealing the winner before they'd had chance to watch the finale, with the author and presenter later commenting: "truly sorry for spoiling the voice tonight. I thought that since the official account tweeted it, it would be okay. But now I realise it wasn’t and will make sure that when my husband wins something with someone, I will wait for each state and every country before being excited."

She then added: "Well it looks like we are now being penalised for my spoiler and the award has been taken away and given to Carson Daly. Again I apologise."

Despite her slip-up, John also tweeted about his victory - albeit slightly later than his wife.

"So happy for @MaelynMusic! She is the Voice!!! Thanks to everyone who voted for her!!!" he wrote.

The finale also saw performances from a host of famous faces, including BTS, the Jonas Brothers, Halsey, OneRepublic, Hootie & the Blowfish and Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie, who performed their tune ME!.
