Self-proclaimed 'It girl' Harriett Blackmore is becoming one of the most iconic islanders on this series of Love Island, and one particular moment that she went viral for was when she took Joey Essex to the hideaway and he asked her to dance for him.

Harriett, who is a dance teacher and personal shopper outside of the villa, did in fact give him a little private show, complete with a sl*t drop.

But fans wanted an encore, so Love Island's internet sleuths went digging for more content of Harriett dancing.

And now one account has surfaced a clip that looks suspiciously like Harriett.

A page on TikTok @s.22zz, which regularly shares Love Island updates, posted the video with text over it saying 'live recording of Harriett Blackmore dancing for Joey Essex', which sadly seems to be poking fun at the girl.

Nevertheless the video has amassed nearly 3 million views, over 234 thousand likes and thousands of comments.

You can tell the video is dated as the girl in the video is wearing an Ivy Park t-shirt and Adidas Superstar trainers which were popular around 2016, 8 years ago.

Naturally, the comments are flooded with fans wanting to know if this is really her, so, we reached out to the page and they told us it is her and they manage to find the video via Harriett's mum's Instagram.

We are not surprised fans were able to find the video, routinely old videos or pictures of the islanders surface while they're on the show - the internet really has no chill.

Cast your mind back to Georgia Steel's time in the villa when fans found out that as a kid she'd been on Nickelodeon and a star in the CBBC show All At Sea, clips of that show went viral.

And of course pictures of twins Jess and Eve Gale came to light while they were on All Stars with fans shocked by their cosmetic transformation.
