Steve Harvey has joked about his now infamous Miss Universe gaffe on Christmas day, wishing his followers a "Merry Easter" on social media.

The tv personality hit headlines last Sunday when he announced the wrong winner of the international beauty pageant as Miss Colombia, when the title in fact went to Miss Philippines.

After apologising profusely for misreading the card with the winner's name, it seems he now sees the funny side of it.

Merry Easter y'all !

She was applauded for nearly two minutes before Mr Harvey made his way back on stage and corrected the mistake.

He explained that he had misread the card giving the name of the winner. "It is my mistake. I feel terrible," he said.
