Molly-Mae Hague has claimed she was ‘mortified’ when fans pointed out she was holding her phone upside down in a sultry snap.
The Love Island star, 21, shared a sizzling snap in a parking garage, and though she was showing off her toned abs it was her phone that caught her fans attention.
Sharing her reaction to the blunder on Thursday, Molly-Mae claimed: ‘I came on here to say I’m actually highly, highly embarrassed about something I did yesterday.
Shocked: Molly-Mae Hague claimed on Thursday that she was left ‘mortified’ after fans pointed out she was holding her phone upside down in a sultry snap she had shared on Wednesday
‘I posted a picture on my Instagram in which I was holding my phone as a little prop… I don’t know why I was holding my phone to be honest.
‘Anyway, basically I was holding it upside down and by the time I’d posted it it was too late, everyone had already seen it and everyone pointed it out to me and I’m actually mortified about it.’
‘It wasn’t just like discreetly upside down, it was fully upside down – the microphone was at the top and everything. I don’t want to talk about it.’

Upset: Molly said of the snap, ‘I was holding it upside down and by the time I’d posted it it was too late… everyone pointed it out to me and I’m actually mortified about it’
Molly-Mae then criticised her sister and friends who she shared the photo with prior to uploading it on social media, as she felt they hadn’t informed her of the blunder which meant she was left in a precarious position.
She hit out: ‘Yeah, my sister is no longer my sister because I did send this picture to her first, and a few other people – you know who you are, who didn’t point this out to me – they’re cancelled.’
In her original snaps, which she has since deleted, Molly-Mae displayed her taut midriff in a long-sleeved crop top which boasted a plunging zip detail.

Molly-Mae paired the ribbed top with some skin-tight matching leggings from brand Bo+Tee to showcase her sizzling curves.
Continuing the monochrome theme, the blonde beauty tied her long locks back into a pony-tail and donned a simple black cap.
She kept her accessories to a minimum for the parking lot snap, however her fans were quick to notice Molly-Mae was holding her iPhone the wrong way around.
One image shared to her grid showed Molly-Mae clutching the device with the charger end up and her fingers over the cameras.

However she corrected the hold for her second post and posed looking down at the smartphone which was protected in a powder pink case.
Dozens of her 5.1m followers pointed this out, with many appearing amused as they shared laughing face emojis and one penning: ‘It’s the upside down phone for me.’
Molly-Mae also shared a glimpse into her impressive wardrobe on Wednesday as she revealed she was having a housework day and tidying up her belongings.
In two snaps shared to Instagram Stories, Molly-Mae showed her messy closet with dozens of clothes covering the floor.
Despite the mountain of mess, she managed to clear everything and went on to show a picture of the room back to pristine condition with her Louis Vuitton and Chanel boxes stacked under the window.

Mixed reactions: The star divided fans when she recently showed off her new designer Gucci x The North Face jacket and branded it ‘chav chic’
Some social media users claimed the influencer is ‘toned deaf’ and ‘disconnected from the world’ for using the ‘classist term’, while others insisted naysayers should ‘give the girl a break’ and focus on ‘bigger problems’ instead.
Chav is a term usually used to describe a lower-class youth dressed in sportswear.
However, ‘chav chic’ also refers to the trend of athleisure loungewear – a look previously favoured by the likes of Paris Hilton and Britney Spears, who made pink velour tracksuits and Von Dutch caps a staple in many noughties wardrobes.
On the topic, one slammed: ‘molly mae calling her gucci tnf jacket ‘chav chic’ really does back my dissertation. saying stuff like that with the potential of ‘influencing’ her 5 mill followers to use classist terms like that really does not sit well with me.’ (sic)

What a collection: The YouTuber also revealed she’s the proud owner of a sweatshirt from the recently released line
Others agreed: ‘please tell me molly mae didn’t actually say ‘chav chic’ … ??? how can someone be so disconnected from the outside world.
‘Calling out molly mae for using the words chav chic to describe a £2000+ coat is not ‘jealousy’, I absolutely love her but she is very tone deaf and so are a lot of you on here clearly …
‘Hoping this is the year the idolising of Molly-Mae slams to a grinding halt when we add classist slurs to the mix of dreadful film taste, sh** cooking skills and buying dogs from illegal puppy farm breeders.’ (sic)
However, many of her fans saw the humour in her description and told the critics to ‘be angry at something worth your time.’ (sic)

They said: ‘All these ppl hating on molly mae have defo said worse things than chav and are just using this for another reason to hate on her.
‘I’m from a working class background from a council estate…i’m literally the epitome of the word and I can assure you the word isn’t offensive.
‘there’s literally nothing offensive about the word ‘chav’ there’s way bigger problems out there mate. get a grip.
‘If you’re on the internet greetin about molly mae saying chav you need to relax. Go for a walk. Clear your head. All will be okay, I promise.’
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Molly-Mae for further comment.
