Sunday Brunch has been trolled after an embarrassing tweet, which saw the Channel 4 show ask viewers to "find Maddie?" in an empty apartment.

Shocked viewers instantly made a link to missing toddler Madeleine McCann, which forced the team to delete the tweet within minutes after a string of abuse.

The popular Channel 4 show, tweeted: “Can you spot Maddie? Hide yourself somewhere in your house, tweet us a photo & we’ll try to spot you on the show!”

The weekend programme, which is presented by Tim Lovejoy, sent the tweet to their following of just over 275,000 users.

The show then deleted the tweet, but not before viewers responded to the embarrassing message.

One Twitter user tweeted: “is that a Portuguese hotel room”

“They didn’t think that tweet through did they,” added another.

Another viewer was more sinister, penning: “ask Kate + gerry #McCann #scam”

“oooh, not going to be good PR this one!” joked another viewer, as the conversation continued about the blunder.


The team then quickly replaced the tweet, asking viewers to 'spot Ruby' but didn’t take to Twitter to address the matter.

A spokesperson for the show told Mirror Online: "The tweet referred to a member of the production team in the photo who is called Maddie but it was quickly removed to avoid any confusion which may have arisen due to this coincidence."

Earlier in the day the team tweeted: "Instead of hiding eggs, hide yourself somewhere in your house. Tweet us a photo & we'll see if we can spot you on the show this Sunday!"

It all started so simple.
