Siobhan Mulvey uploaded a snap to Twitter of her holding a clutch bag as she prepared to celebrate her sister's birthday - which confused users on the social media site.

Mulvey revealed that she's thrown away the bag since as a result of the hassle it caused.

The 19-year-old student said: ''I've actually chucked the bag out because of all the drama it gave me. Me and my family were going out for a bottomless brunch at Dirty Martini for my sister's 30th.

''I then put it on Twitter because I thought I looked pretty. I have quite a few followers and thought it would be nice. Then it just went completely weird.

''When people were thinking it was a baby scan it did make me giggle seeing as I put the caption, 'Let's get drunk.'''
