Love Island 2018 contestant Niall Aslam made an awkward mistake, as he quizzed Samira Mighty over her romance with Chris Pine.

Samira confirmed she dated the Hollywood actor in the latest task, with Niall impressed by her famous ex.

But Niall’s comment about Samira dating a Star Trek actor left some fans of the movie unimpressed after a mix-up.

Niall said to Samira how amazing it was that she’s dated “Spock” from Star Trek, when in fact she hadn’t as Chris Pine didn’t play this character.

Chris, whose romance with Samira was revealed this week, played Captain Kirk in the film reboots.

Viewers raced to Twitter over the moment, calling out Niall for his mistake.

One fan tweeted: “I love Niall, but Chris Pine plays Captain Kirk not Spock and it should NOT be bugging me this much.”

Another fumed: “Chris Pine is KIRK not SPOK. Honestly, call yourself a geek!?”

Others began questioning Samira’s dating revelation, not convinced the romance happened.

One fan claimed: “Samira did not date Captain Kirk, I’m not having that.”
