Megan posted a photo on her Instagram with two friends, holding a range of designer shopping bags, including Prada. But eagle-eyed fans noticed the same bags were in the background of a photo taken earlier that day at Beach Blanket Babylon.

Maybe the purchases had already been made? But other fans realised that Megan had uploaded a Snapchat in the same venue saying she and her friends were planning on shopping later that day after a sushi lunch.

One user wrote: ‘Lmao so embarrassing they took a picture with empty bags.’ Another said: ‘I love Megan but look at the empty bags in the back for props. Didn’t realise TOWIE was that fake.’ And one wrote: ‘Loool look at them bags tryna show off when there empty.’

Never to early for a cocktail date 🍸 #Towie

Other users also noticed that the girls were in Brick Lane, an area of London known more for its vintage shops than designer.
One user said: ‘Lol where’s prada in brick Lane? It’s all curry houses and wholesalers.’

Another added: ‘love this! Some of the bags are so crinkled up looks like they’ve been scrunched up in a drawer for 6 months before they got taken out again for a “spontaneous” snap!’ One also said: ‘Where is there a Loub and Prada shop on Shoreditch high street.’

Did Megan really fake her shopping trip? Or is it a case of badly timed photos?
