Last night was the UK premiere of the latest Star Wars film, The Last Jedi.

The film includes seeing Daisy Ridley, Mark Hamill and John Boyega return as the main characters, Rey, Luke Skywalker and Finn.

It also shows the late Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia, this will be her final appearance within the series of films after her death last year.

Holly Willoughby, while presenting This morning, leaked the news while talking to John Boyega.

During the interview, Holly said: "And Yoda's back!" which was followed by a long pause from Boyega and a very confused Holly.

After looking around the room, he said: "Holly, Holly. I mean I can't tell the fans exactly what happens."

There have been articles flying around about a possible return of Yoda after it was reported that Frank Oz, the voice of Yoda was in the UK and headed for Pinewood Studios for the film.

What is the reaction?

George Lucas is told to have given the thumbs up to the film, he believes that the film was beautifully made, says his representative talking to Heat Vision.

If Holly's spoiler is correct, this will be Yoda's first appearance in the Star Wars since 2005's Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.

Yoda was featured in The Force Awakens when the character Rey finds Luke Skywalker's lightsaber, but this was only the voice of Yoda, not an appearance.

The Spoiler has left the public both confused and excited on social media.

What's the plot?

The last film ended with Rey (Daisy Ridley) approaching Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) an offering him his recently found lightsaber back.
