Love Love Island? Our Factor 50 email brings all the goss direct to your inbox
Love Island fans were left confused during Thursday's 2021 National Television Awards after the show picked a past clip of Jake Cornish and Liberty Poole loved-up despite since splitting.
Taking to Twitter, viewers joked that producers were "so wrong' for picking the moment when Jake, 24, returned from Casa Amor and recoupled with Liberty, 22, over the summer.
Fans will recall that Liberty ended her romance with Jake just days before the show's final, saying: "I just don't feel like you love me for me and I want someone who loves me for me."
Love Island was nominated for the Challenge Show award, which was won by The Great British Bake Off, and it used the couple's Casa Amor recoupling speech to promote it.
Taking to Twitter, one viewer joked: "Help why are they showing Jake coming back to Lib from Casa Amor [crying emojis] what an awkward clip to pick #NTAs."
A different account put: "Why did they show Jake and Libs scene? #NTAs."
Another follower commented: "#NTAs are so wrong for showing Jake and Liberty clip."
While a different show watcher added: "The #NTAs producers showing a clip of Jake and Liberty after they broke up weeks ago."
It comes as Love Island stars Teddy Soares and Faye Winter discussed how co-star Liberty is adapting to single life after she ended her romance with Jake.
Talking about how Liberty has adapted to single life, Teddy and Faye exclusively spoke to OK! on the red carpet at Thursday's 2021 National Television Awards at London's O2, sponsored by OK!
Teddy said that Liberty deserves someone who will make her "feel deserved" while Faye added that she is "proud" of her former co-star, who she likened to a little sister.
Faye declared: "I think she's loving it, she is a strong, independent woman, she doesn't need no man!" while Teddy added: "She's strutting her stuff!"
He continued: "She obviously deserves someone who is going to make her feel like she wants to feel deserved when she gets that, she will be even happier!"
