It’s one thing to find out your partner is being unfaithful, it’s another when they reveal this to you by accident in an catastrophic attempt at romance.
This is what happened to one woman who discovered her boyfriend was cheating thanks to a seemigly sentimental photo he sent.
The image initially shows a stuffed-toy perched on the pillow of a hotel bed.
But when Kerrigan tapped on the live version of the snap, she saw that the cuddly elephant – and her beau – had company.

The next few seconds of the clip revealed another woman leaping onto the bed with a smile.
Kerrigan’s post racked up more than 1.2 million likes and 9,600 comments as users shared their outrage at the blunder and betrayal.
“My jaw dropped faster than she did,” one wrote.
“He couldn’t wait five seconds for the Live Photo to end?” asked another.
Meanwhile scores of others shared similar experiences.
“Lol a guy I dated did the same and a Bumble notification popped up on the live,” one recalled.
“I heard his new girlfriend in the background while he drunk called me saying he missed me,” said another.
“The guy I was talking to went on a trip alone and I asked for a picture. When I clicked the live someone in the car said ‘are you done’,” a third reminisced.
Others shared tips on how to ensnare potential cheaters using the iPhone function.
One explained: “If you save their Live Photo you can also check your camera roll for the date times and place it was taken. Go off ladies.”
“The best part is you can save it to your camera roll and pull up the exact location,” another added.
However, some sceptics questioned the credibility of the situation, asking: “Did someone actually send you this?” and “is this even possible?”.
Kerrigan confirmed that it was true with a simple “100 per cent.”
All we can say is, if you need to do some investigating, Apple might be a good place to start...
