Love Island fans have been left confused after the cast for this year's Mobile Drama app was announced, with many believing them to be the 2021 line-up for the actual show.
Earlier in June, promotional photos for the game began circulating, and while some thought they would be the next batch of Love Island stars, others called out the lack of diversity.
Model and actor Shane Finlayson shared the picture on Instagram and wrote: "Working with this cast was amazing and I can say I've learnt a lot on my first acting job from everyone, and the production team was a dream."
People in the comments were baffled, with one asking him: "Are you allowed to say you're in it? I thought it was live?"
Another asked: "Is this the new Love Island?"
Meanwhile, others asked Shane what had happened to his girlfriend, as they believed that he was in a relationship so should not be going on Love Island.
However he was quick to clear up the confusion, as he explained it was an acting job, and he was playing a character.

Elsewhere, on Twitter, another shot of the line-up began going around with users calling out the lack of diversity within the apparent cast.
"When are they gonna get some diversity in these shows?" one asked.
Another said: "Black women said f*** Love Island. I respect it. I'mma still lock in for the entertainment."
And a third added: "They really said you guys can have one black guy and one racially ambiguous shawty, take it or leave it."

However others pointed out, again, that it was just for a fictional game.
One said: "It's not the cast. Why would they meet each other, also none of the rumoured contestants are there and there's nine days left. ITV would never let this happen."
The actual line-up is set to be revealed soon, as the 2021 series of Love Island is set to kick off on June 28 on ITV2.
So far, there have been a number of rumoured islanders, including a beauty queen and a luxury events host.
Similarly, Gordon Ramsay's daughter and Karren Brady's daughter have been rumoured, though both have denied that they are taking part after reportedly being approached.
Daily Star has contacted ITV for comment.
