A LOVE Island winner has left her fans in stitches with her hilarious mispronunciation of an Irish county.
Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu made the huge error before heading to Ireland for an "exciting" trip.
Ekin, who won Love Island last year with Davide Sanclimenti, is in the country for her collaboration with the makeup brand BPerfect Cosmetics.
The reality TV star took to her Instagram yesterday to tell her fans the news.
The 28-year-old said: "Hi guys, I'm extremely excited to meet you all for the meet-and-greet with BPerfect in Ireland this weekend.
"Thursday I'm in Belfast, Friday I'm in Wexford and Saturday I am at Limerick.
"I can't wait to meet you all. I'm super excited. I love Ireland and love you all. See you there soon."
However, Ekin-Su pronounced Limerick the same way you would say 'lime' – the fruit, and a person named 'Rick'.
The Dancing On Ice star was forced to apologise after being called out by her Irish fans.
She said laughing: "So here's an interesting fact so apparently 'Lime-rick' is called Limerick in Irish and I just found out from some of my fans.

Jordan said: "Really enjoying Ekin-Su’s pronunciation of Limerick on her Instagram stories."
One fan wrote: "I’m in bits and she fully leaned in with the 'interesting fact'."
Laura added: "It’s so funny how the word Limerick isn’t just an Irish place so we can assume Ekin-Su has never heard a limerick before."
This comes after Chloe Burrows and Millie Court jetted off to Ireland for a girls trip last month.
The reality TV stars shared snippets of their Dublin stay over on Instagram.
Millie gushed over their stunning hotel room saying it was the "cutest room ever".
They're staying in one of the townhouse suites of the hotel with a super-king sized bed, a copper bath and fire place in the room.
Chloe took a video of herself and Millie all dolled up ready to hit the town and said: "Hello Dublin, we outside! I'm so excited."
The pair went to an Irish bar and tasted Ireland's world famous stout.
They took a sip of the Guinness and Chloe said: "Cheers. It's not bad."
Millie wasn't too impressed and replied: "It's not great."
Chloe joked: "Like I'd say that's… horrible."
