Following last night's BAFTA ceremony, British talk show host and video game fan Jonathan Ross revealed on his Twitter that he had been offered a role in Fable III.

"Goodnight all. Must go to bed. Got asked to do voice in Fable 3 tonight. Subarashi. Oyasuminasia. Woss out," Twittered Ross.

He later confirmed his post, adding: "Yes they are doing it. Charlie Brooker said he would do a voice for it to! Great fun!!"

This morning Ross appeared to have realised he may have revealed something that should have been kept under wraps.

"Good morning. Today I must file DVDs, write a piece for The Times, apologize to Peter Molyneux then go Thorpe Park for SAW rollercoaster!"

Ross later responded to a direct message on Twitter asking what the apology was for.

"because I think I revealed something that was not officially announced yet..." he said.

You don't have to be a professional video games analyst to think a third Fable game would be a good idea, but we're sure Microsoft and Lionhead would have preferred to make an announcement a further later down the line.
