The seemingly-innocent snap showed little Nelly, two, grinning outside the grotto.

She’d been dressed in a festive red coat and matching shoes, and Billie had captioned the image: ‘A much more successful trip to see Father Christmas this year … ๐Ÿ™Š๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽโค๏ธ.’

Cute, huh?! But unfortunately for the TOWIE lady, some of her Instagram followers ended up a little confused by Nelly’s gorgeous long eyelashes.

Little Nelly has clearly been blessed with gorgeous long lashes

Comments included: ‘Have they put mascara on this little girl? Haha,’ and: ‘I know this might sound ridiculous but are their fake eyelashes?? [sic].’

Hmm. We’re pretty sure Nelly’s just blessed with naturally fluttery lashes (and we’re very jealous).

And plenty of others agree with us, with one reply reading: ‘Do people seriously think she’s putting mascara on her young daughter? There was a photo of her asleep recently and u can see her eyelashes are naturally long and dark.. people need to get a grip ffs ๐Ÿ˜ด.’

Another said: ‘Omg! Listen to yourselves, do you really think she would put mascara on her! Children are known to have long eyelashes whether they are blonde or not.’

Billie’s yet to respond to the furore, and TBH, we think she’s probably a little too busy RN to bother.

We can't wait to meet you baby ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’™
