The person wrote: "No surprise that Williamson won Britain's Brightest Celebrity Family.

"Yet again answering quick and even before Anne had finished reading out questions!

"So rigged, such a shame to end [the] series this way, hope it's fair next time."

What did Anne say?

However, Anne hit back on Twitter: "It is possible to interrupt a question when you can see where it's going, you know."

The person then replied: "That [would] be OK if other teams also did that but it's strange that Williamson's [the] only one to do it."

Anne said: "Why don't you come right out and say if you're accusing us of fraud?"

The viewer continued: "I still think bit strange how Williamson's answered questions before even finished being asked."

Anne hit back: "What are you implying? That we secretly fed Shaun's team the answers?

"Come right out and say it if you're wondering."

The viewer replied: "Different opinions, have to agree to disagree, goodnight, have a nice day tomorrow."
