Caroline Flack has cleared up confusion surrounding a photo she put on Instagram, after fans confused a crayon with a rolled-up bank note.
Two weeks ago, Caroline shared a photo of herself enjoying a poker night on her Instagram page, but fans’ eyes were immediately drawn to what looked like a bank note on the table in front of her, next to a credit card.
As her followers began speculating about what exactly it was, Caroline was quick to offer the response that the object in question was actually a “child’s crayon”, in the comments on the pic.
However, when more and more people began to take notice of the snap, Caroline posted another photo online, this time a close-up of the “crayon” (although she might want to take a trip to WHSmiths, because that’s actually a marker pen).
Addressing one news outlet who’d run a story speculating about the alleged bank note, she captioned the pic with the rather blunt message: “It’s a pen you twits.”
Well, that settles that. As you were.
A source tells Now magazine: “Caroline uploaded that picture herself.
“As soon as people started commenting and suggesting people were taking drugs, despite the fact that the picture clearly shows a pen on the table, she panicked and started deleting the comments.”
Of course, this is far from the first time Caroline has caused fans to do a double take with her Instagram activity.
Last year, she shocked fans by uploading a selfie in which she inadvertently revealed her nipple to her followers, which disappeared from her page almost as quickly as it was posted, only to resurface hours later, in a more cropped form.
