Of course, mentioning the name Elma Amy Hart brought her back to her childhood, leaving her innocently thinking of the big rainbow patchwork elephant that we all read about at school.

Amy asked her islanders if they could remember the multi-colored title character from the book Elmer the patchwork elephantOnly Molly-Mae thought the elephant was someone else's.

Turns out she thought something red and furry, and said, "Oh, yes, Elmo."

Twitter was set on fire over the awkward sesame street Confusion when the fans reacted to the children's character flow:

Some then dragged old Ellie, the elephant, into all the confusion (should not that be Nellie?):

Remember, folks: Elmo, Ellie, Nellie and Elmer are all completely different characters indeed.

In today's episode of the ITV2 dating show, Amy burst into tears after having worried a bit about her thriving romance with Curtis Pritchard.
