Strictly: Louis Smith in trouble for Sid Owen & Ola *SPOILER* tweet

We pretended to act all surprised when Sid Owen and Ola Jordan became the latest couple to waltz off Strictly Come Dancing last night.

But thanks to a huge SPOILER by fellow contestant Louis Smith we already knew - 24 hours earlier!

The Olympic gymnast, who scored the first nines of the series on Saturday night, let the excitement get the better of him, when he tweeted the result straight after the show.

With the BBC One show filming both its Saturday night and Sunday night all in one go, he posted on the social networking site: "So much luv for @FlaviaCacace & it's so sad to say bye to @sidowen5 & @The_OlaJordan #crewlove."

The cheeky chap was then given a rap over the knuckles by BBC producers, who forced him to delete the tweet.

A BBC source told The Sun's TV Biz: "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.

"He is embarrassed about it, but at the end of the day it was an honest mistake."

Eastenders star Sid Owen became the latest victim of the Strictly axe after his Halloween week horror with partner Ola.

The pair, who did a weak routine to the theme of Ghostbusters, were never going to find it easy this week after she was forced to spent the week in Poland nursing her sick mother.

Sid explained afterwards how tricky it had been: "We really have had the week from hell. Ola has been through it with her mum and we only had a few hours together to practice.

"Literally, we had two hours and that was it. Ola wasn't happy with the routine because she hadn't put it together, so she wasn't feeling it.

"She was nervous and that really rubbed off on me. I knew she wasn't happy and wasn't in the right frame of mind after what she'd been through. But you've just got to do what you're given and try to make the most of your routine, which is what we did."

Louis had a far better time of it, scoring three nines after his amazing routine with Flavia Cacace.

We reckon he needs to let his feet do the talking at ALL times now though. Doh.
