However, it’s since been confirmed that PrettyLittleThing by Molly-Mae had nothing to do with British Fashion Council’s official schedule and that it was only held at the same time.

Therefore, changes have had to be made by Molly and the team to differentiate the two.

Molly shared a post to her 6.2 million Instagram followers of the exciting news that originally said, ‘Get ready London Fashion Week… we’re coming @prettylittlething !!!’

However, the 22-year-old has since changed the caption.

Following the first episode of the documentary series, several fans picked up on the same notable issue.

Several other fans pointed out that the documentary constantly referred to London Fashion Week, despite the confirmation of being two separate events

Molly Lawrence commented: ‘It’s so humiliating for them that it wasn’t even officially in London Fashion Week’.

Daria Suchenek wrote: ‘Why they are keep saying that they were part or fashion week where British Fashion Council confirmed that the show didn’t have anything to do with LFW…’

Nikita added: ‘I swear it came out that PLT wasn’t even part of London fashion week? What is happening?’

Molly looked stressed as they prepared for the PrettyLittleThing runway

Molly has previously fallen under scrutiny following ’24 hour’ comments, which was said on Dragons’ Den star Steven Bartlett’s podcast.

At the time, Molly said: “When I’ve spoken about that in the past I have been slammed a little bit, with people saying ‘it’s easy for you to say that because you’ve not grown up in poverty, so for you to sit there and say we all have the same 24 hours in a day is not correct.’ But, technically, what I’m saying is correct. We do.”

Fans were visibly upset in the comment section as they thought that Molly’s role as Creative Director was falsely advertised for the series and was merely a ‘face’ for the brand.

Reports revealed that the star is approximately paid £400,000 a month for her high-profile role in the fast-fashion retailer.

Han Tur commented: ‘It’s cringey to see that this is how she’s acting after the 24h comment. Like I feel like this is her trying to show us how “hard” she works but really she’s just done the opposite’.

Sophie Hamilton wrote: ‘I swear a creative director would never come up with venue and food recommendations…’

A C penned: ‘So obvious that the scene with her getting told loads of work was just for show to make it look like she does something. We all know she’s purely just a money face of the brand’.

Nadia Meem added: ‘You can tell who REALLY does the work just by the way they’re dressed… Can imagine… She comes in, prim and proper head to toe, does f all And leaves. Then says “had a busy day at the office”‘.
