The winter series, fronted by new host Maya Jama, kicked off in South Africa with the TV salesman, 20, boldly declaring he’s ‘never been in a relationship’.
But eagle-eyed fans took to Twitter to call out Haris after discovering loved-up videos his ex-girlfriend Courtney Hodgson had posted on TikTok.
Under fire: Love Island’s Haris Namani has already been branded ‘disrespectful’ by viewers tuning in to watch Monday’s launch episode
During his introductory video tape, he said: ‘I’ve never had butterflies and I’ve never fell in love’, before ruling out any single ladies whose feet were over a size five.
When asked by Maya if he’s ‘a relationship type of guy’, he replied: ‘I’ve never been in a relationship so it’s a hard one for me’.
Taking to Twitter, one fan uploaded a video compilation of Haris with his influencer ex.

Another said: ‘Love Island finishes, open TikTok, first video – Haris and his ex Mr I’ve never had a relationship this algorithm.’
A third fan chimed: ‘Not Haris being exposed for lying about having a relationship already, Twitter working harder than the FBI as always’.

Courtney fumed: ‘We were only at Winter Wonderland six weeks ago together with my family.’
In a follow-up comment, the furious social media star added: ‘Biggest game player going, leaving me for a TV show and I called it from the second he left me.’
When asked how he would know when he’d found the ‘one’, Haris said before entering the villa: ‘The girls I’ve had in the past, I’ve never really got out of my shell with the loving part.
He added: ‘I mean I’ve been nice to the girls, that’s not a problem, but I’ve never actually had that feeling.
‘But obviously on the show if I’m with a girl for nine weeks I can eventually get out of my shell a bit more.
‘In the past I’ve never stayed with a girl so much because I’m always training, and I’ve got work.
‘So imagine being with a girl nine weeks everyday, it’d be different. You could probably see straight away. I’d know.’
