Naomi Ball got an unexpected message from the Love Island producers today - asking if she would apply for the second series - despite the fact that she starred on the first series last year.

Naomi shared a message sent to her by a producer, enquiring if she would be "possibly interested in potentially applying to be a contestant on this year's series".

The message said producers were "very interested" in her profile, and said appearing on the show would give her "huge potential to showcase yourself on a brilliant mainstream platform and with the added touch of potentially finding a relationship".

Naomi shared the conversation with fans, tweeting: "Seriously @LoveIsland."

So we're guessing she didn't reply then?

Her former co-star and now TOWIE cast member Jon Clark replied with a string of crying with laughter emojis, which led Naomi to say at "least I was memorable"!

It appears to be a simple and honest mistake, but it's pretty funny though, right?!

In other Love Island related news, Naomi also revealed that she's had a lot of people contacting her about the show.

She revealed earlier this week: "The number of people messaging me saying they've been asked to go on @LoveIsland; the opening lineup's going to have about 40 ppl on it."

It was just last month that Naomi revealed she was close to quitting the show - just two days before she was due to fly out to Majorca, Spain.

She wrote an email to ITV producers saying she was worried how she would "come across" because she didn't want to be seen as "some sort of arrogant man-eating bitch".

Naomi was a late arrival on the first series of the revamped Love Island but her time in the villa was much-talked about.

She famously clashed with Jessica Hayes over Joshua Ritchie and Max Morley, and was also accused of leading them both on.

Naomi told Reveal following her exit: "I played it in there how I would on the outside. I always like to have a bit of intrigue and a bit of mystery, but I think that came across as me being stand-offish and calculating."

The second series of Love Island is expected to air on ITV2 later this year.
