The One Show got tense as fans warned hosts not to spoil the BBC Vigil drama
Host Alex Scott, 36, and Jermaine Jenas, 38, were joined by actor Paterson Joseph who stars as Neil Newsome in the hit crime investigation series.
Before the discussion began, the presenters seemed delighted that inside information about the ending could be released.
However, viewers were furious and took to Twitter to beg the producers not to reveal anything.
“@BBCTheOneShow Hey guys… how about a spoiler alert before reporting on a show I expect to overwatch next weekend? #Vigil #TheOneShow #SpoilerAlert,” asked an online user.
“#TheOneShow Some of us haven’t seen Vigil yet and are waiting to have all the episodes taped. Don’t give us any spoils,” asked another.
As a third barked: “Please don’t spoil Vigil tonight.
“The record button has a lens that many of us use to watch when it’s convenient! Thanks #TheOneShow.”
Luckily for fans who were hoping to watch all of the episodes together at a later date, they got lucky.
Alternate host Alex was also hoping to catch up, telling Paterson, “I plan to watch excessively on Sunday.”
Paterson warned, “I wouldn’t do that. And I know the ending. It’s pretty dark.”
Despite her recommendations, Alex didn’t take no for a response that the “suspending wait” every week would be too much for her to bear.
The One Show airs weekdays on BBC One.
