Honestly if you haven’t been called out for a photoshop fail, can you really call yourself an influencer these days?

From bendy furniture to ludicrously disproportionate limbs, we thought we’d seen it all when it comes to terrible alterations, but the latest offering from a reality star truly does take the cake.

Forget shaving a few inches of waist, how about faking an entire location?

That’s exactly what Love Island star Arabella Chi is being accused of today, after a promotional post to her Instagram backfired spectacularly for one, blindingly obvious reason.

Fans were quick to point out that either the star has had her edges reinforced, or she’s just copy/pasted herself onto a Love Island location, and not particularly well either.

“This dead a** photoshop smh,” one fan wrote.

“Hahahahaha ur photoshopping is sh*te,” another laughed.

A closer look seems to confirm fans’ suspicions, as a slightly jagged - edge? - of hair is what really gives the game away.

So many collabs, so little time on the show

The former Love Island contestant seems to be following up her short-lived time on the show with throwback shots promoting the show, and its official fashion partner ‘I Saw it First’.

Arabella was voted out after just one week of drama, and seems to be making up for lost time by photoshopping her sponsored look onto the show’s iconic backdrop in an implied ‘throwback’ fail.

Clearly fans have seen through the ruse.

Not only is the image clearly using a green-screen, but her seven-day stint would not have left the aspiring influencer much time for photo ops.

With 300k followers and counting, there’s bound to be some bumps in the road.

Let’s just hope those bumps aren’t as jerky as this chop job going forward.
