Imagine you’re using a dating app that promises you that it can hook you up with your perfect match – and instead, it shows you someone you're related to.
Sounds like your worst nightmare? Well, unfortunately for poor Rosie Holt, this actually happened to her.
The actress and comedian was swiping through Hinge when she spotted the all-too-familiar smiling face of sibling Charlie Holt as her top potential match.
Sharing the hilarious news with her 100,000 Twitter followers, Rosie showed the purple banner above his profile preview containing the baffling alert, saying "most compatible: Charlie and Rosie, we think you two should meet."
Rosie captioned the image: "Hinge has just suggested I match with my brother. FML"
Rosie’s tweet has since been liked, retweeted and commented on more than 23,000 times with users joking 'at least you'll love the inlaws' and 'Hinge has been watching Game of Thrones.’
User @Es8113 commented: "Haha, well I guess their algorithm works a treat? I mean, you two definitely have things in common (such as your parents)."
Al Innes added: "On the plus side you already love him unconditionally, so it would be a very stable match."
Tim Senna said: "The coding team at Hinge have been binging Game of Thrones then clearly."
Hanning Strack said: "Look at the positives! You already love the in-laws and they love you. No additional family celebrations that you get dragged along to."
User Hybrid572 suggested: "Maybe Hinge should just filter out people you share a surname with. I think that really should count you out of dating someone."
YouTuber Alex Bennet said: "Your brother is lovely tbf."
Rosie jokingly replied: "He’s not my type sadly."
She later agreed with a tweet claiming it wasn't Hinge's fault, posting: "This man has rightly called me out on my Hinge-blaming tweet and really given me food for thought.
"I would like to humbly apologise to Hinge and let them know I don’t hold them personally responsible."
A spokesperson for Hinge, and Rosie, have been contacted for comment.
