Louis Smith made a very bad judgment call on social media

We wonder what goes through a celebrity’s mind before they post a dodgy tweet, full in the knowledge that the entire world is looking on.

It’s safe to say that Olympic medallist Louis Smith wasn’t quite thinking things through when he sent a tweet comparing his mobile phone signal to ISIS.

In a since deleted tweet, the 26-year-old gymnast – who is dating former TOWIE star Lucy Mecklenburgh – wrote: “My Vodafone signal is worse than ISIS. I can’t even have a conversation with my girlfriend.”

Oh dear! The tweet is now nowhere to be found, and Louis has not addressed the awkward incident on his social media accounts.

Louis had mentioned earlier in the day that he was in London to celebrate a birthday ‘surprise’ with girlfriend Lucy, so perhaps his mind was preoccupied!

Louis and Lucy have been dating for around five months now, and recently opened up on their relationship in an interview with Hello! magazine.

“I trust Louis completely and I don’t think I’ve ever felt that way before. His mum even said to me on New Year’s Eve, Louis would never cheat on you. He would never hurt you,” gushed Lucy.
