ITV2 made an epic gaffe on their social media account at the weekend, posting a romantic picture of Love Island winners Amber Gill and Greg O’Shea days after their split.
The channel, which airs the hit reality show, retweeted a loved-up image on Sunday of the former couple on a recent break to Ireland and captioned the picture: “If our weekends looked like this we’d be sorted.”
The embarrassing blunder showed that whoever runs the network’s social media clearly wasn’t keeping abreast of the latest news as The Sun exclusively revealed on Friday that Amber and Greg were over.
While the post was swiftly deleted, fans have already clocked it and pointed out how hilarious it was.

“Don’t think itv2 got the memo just yet…” posted one reddit user.
“omgggg hella awkward,” added another.
A third simply said: “Yikes…”
“And I oop,” added a fourth.
A fifth speculated it might have been a stunt, writing: “Maybe they did it on purpose to boost their engagement because they knew people would comment the s**t out of it lol”
As well as the embarrassing post, the news that Amber, 22, and Greg, 24, have split just five weeks after leaving the villa doesn’t look good for ITV2 either.
Greg is said to have ended things with the Newcastle lass by text after deciding the long-distance romance just wouldn’t work.
Amber is devastated,” said our insider. “She thought he was a lovely guy, but he’s made his feelings clear over text, which isn’t very sensitive.
“She had a feeling he was going to make decision to end things but only because she’d been hearing things.
“He hadn’t the decency to tell her himself until she confronted the issue.
“They had a lovely weekend in Dublin planned but he’s just pulled the plug and left her wounded.
“Amber loved her time in the villa with Greg it’s just not been the same since he left for Ireland.”
Greg appeared on Ireland’s The Late Late Show on Friday night and denied ending the romance via text, but did confirm things were done between he and Amber.
He told host Ryan Tubridy: “So we’re mad about each other, what’s not to be mad about? She’s gorgeous, smart funny, she’s the Queen of Love Island for a reason but you need to be realistic about the situation,” he said.
“She lives in the UK, every brand wants to work with her, every event wants her there, of course she deserves all of it and I decided to come back to Ireland and do my thing here.
“I’m trying to get to the Olympics with the sevens team, I’ve got my law exams coming up so we’re both so jam-packed busy and you need to take these opportunities by the scruff of the neck.
“So we’re kind of just being realistic about the situation and protecting our careers and that’s where we are at the moment.
The professional rugby player had been booked to appear on the show with his ex.
Amber was due to travel over to Ireland late last week in order to make the appearance with him.
But after their split Amber remained in the UK and spent time in London with her best friend Anna Vakili over the weekend.

Taking to her Instagram Story last night, Mandi filmed piles of Dominos pizza on the table, telling fans:” We are having a girls’ night in, as usual.”
Anticipating trolls, she continued: “Here come the ‘fat’ comments and the ‘fat’ DMs.”
Mandi then filmed 22-year-old Amber, who was sitting across the table on her phone, Mandi added: “Amber needs pizza, and ice cream, and love.”
Amber beamed as she gushed: “Best friends ever.”
