A Love Island fan has been slammed for ghosting Brad McClelland – and then trying to slide back into his DMs when she saw him on the show.
Pretty Holly Havelock, of Middlesbrough, posted screengrabs from a conversation the pair had on Instagram in January which show the reality TV star flirting with her before she rejects him and stops replying.

But the 23-year-old decided to get back in touch after the labourer's sharp rise to fame on Love Island, joking: "Sorry for pieing you…can we start again?"
Holly, who was contacted by Brad out of the blue, was then subjected to a barrage of abuse from users who didn't see the funny side after she shared the chat on Twitter in a post which racked up 17.5K likes.
One furious user said: "This is just as bad as putting naked photos of people on social media it's disgusting messages should be private."
Another said: "Birds of this generation do anything for a bit of clout".
One went as far as saying: "What a sad human you have to be to do this loool. 'Please talk to me ur on love island now' what a rat haha".
Another troll tagged a mate with a comment: "Check it slag wanting lad back after ignoring him."
Speaking about the tweet, Holly said: "Brad contacted me a while ago.
"It's not that I didn't find him attractive I just wasn't really interested in pursuing anything. I'm still not interested now to be honest.
"The tweet I wrote was just a bit of banter nothing more. I wasn't actually interested all of a sudden just because he was on Love Island. I really don't care, and I wish him all the best
"I'm really thick-skinned so the nasty messages haven't bothered me.
"I know it was a joke, my friends know it was a joke. There are trolls all over the place, especially on Twitter.
"He came across as a really nice lad when he was messaging me. He's a northerner and I'm a northerner, he seemed really genuine."
Brad first got in touch with Holly at the start of the year, when he posted the heart-eye emoji on one of her Instagram stories.
The pair started chatting with the labourer asking Holly: "You got much planned tomorrow?"
She replied: "Absolutely nothing, have you?"
He then said: "Going to some place tomorrow with a pal for a wander, it's some place the avengers were filmed haha."
Holly didn't reply to the 24-year-old until she sent him the tongue message when she realised he was on Love Island, and then shared their conversation on Twitter last week.
Other users found the funny side, with one tweeting: "This is your time to shine, send this to the producers, casa amour here you come."
Another offered support by saying: "People in these comments need to have a day off. Howling!! Casa amour would be a belta hahahahaha x"
