There has been a misunderstanding surrounding a video that recently resurfaced of Harriet before she entered Love Island.

Fans found the footage and assumed Harriett was talking about her own brother, dubbing her a liar because Henry isn't playing at that level yet, however, the owner of the footage clarified Harriett was referring to her brother's friend.

Regarding the video, Harriett spoke to the Mail Online, saying "The video was so many years ago if it's the one I'm thinking of… there's not anything to say about that story."

"If you have seen it, you can see all I'm trying to do is defuse the situation, it was actually one of my really good friends, who is in the public eye, he's a football player, and my brother, and these fans… people were antagonising him, we were just trying to enjoy our night and I didn't think it was fair people were putting cameras in his face."

"I was just trying to mediate the situation and get them away from him."
