Ruth Langsford has been caught accidentally calling Love Island star Millie Court "Lillie" during an awkward interview on This Morning on Friday 27 August.
The 61 year old was joined by husband Eamonn Holmes, also 61, to present the ITV programme, where winners Millie, 24, and 22 year old Liam Reardon came on to talk about their time in the luxurious Majorcan villa.
Showing a clip of the moment it was announced they had won the series and bagged the £50,000 prize, Eamonn said: "Well done, well done. I have to say Millie and Lillie you sound alike and you look alike in fairness… It could've been a mistake that anybody could've made."
Laughing awkwardly, Millie questioned: "You think?"
Eamonn then continued: "Well, obviously you don't," as his wife took over the conversation and said: "Well obviously she doesn't. Firstly, congratulations."
Ruth went on to make an awkward blunder as she then called Millie by Lillie Haynes' name. She said: "Lillie, erm Millie, just to explained people why you're not together. We've seen the two of you joined at the hip for so many weeks and now you're separate, what's happened?"
After she made the mistake, Millie laughed as Liam sat looking very uncomfortable at the conversation before the pair attempted to answer the question.
While Millie saw the amusing side of the exchange, fans flocked to Twitter to share their opinions as one person said: "Noo I’m sorry Eamonn & Ruth are being borderline rude to Millie on #ThisMorning".
Another wrote: "Eamonn saying how similar Millie and Lillie are and then for Ruth to accidentally call Millie, Lillie. That's Millie is a good sport #ThisMorning," followed by a crying with laughter emoji.

A third chimed: "When Ruth calls Millie Lillie! #LoveIsland #ThisMorning," alongside a GIF of a woman looking awkward.
While a fourth added: "Did Ruth really just call Millie , Lillie ffs hahahahaha #LoveIsland #ThisMorning," with three skull emojis and a sulking face emoji.
Millie and Liam coupled up almost instantly when the two bombshells entered the villa. However, disaster soon struck as the boys were taken to Casa Amor, where Liam met 22 year old Lillie.

Lillie and Liam hit it off, flirting and even kissing, but when it came to returning to the main villa, the Welsh bricklayer decided to stick with Millie.
When the truth of his antics came out though, Millie was left devastated.
Luckily, Liam did some grafting and eventually won Millie's trust back and the pair went on to solidify their relationship by becoming boyfriend and girlfriend in the show finale, moment before being announced winners.
