The 2015 Miss Universe final was thrown into embarrassing chaos on Sunday after host Steve Harvey crowned the wrong winner.

Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez, had been announced in first place in the competition with Miss Philippines, Pia Wurtzbach, in second.

Gutierrez was already wearing the crown and blowing kisses to the audience when Harvey was forced to admit he'd made a mistake.

Miss Philippines 2015, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach finally named the 2015 Miss Universe winner in Las Vegas.

He quickly deleted the tweet but by Monday morning the whole debacle was top trend on Twitter and the subject of various memes.

Harvey later managed to successfully apologise...
