Paige Thorne has shared an incongruous snap of herself partying on a bus stop at the Notting Hill Carnival after revelers nearly crushed passers-by who were doing the same.
The Love Island star, 24, took to her Instagram and Stories on Monday to document her day at the carnival with her co-star Antigoni Buxton and other friends.
In one post, Paige shared a series of snaps that showed her dancing and sitting on the roof of a bus stop with a group of other revelers.
Oh dear: Paige Thorne shared an ill-timed snap of herself partying on a bus stop at the Notting Hill Carnival after revelers nearly crushed passers-by who were doing the same
She previously posted and shared a snap of herself on her Stories, writing “what I actually post” and then shared the bus stop snaps with the caption “against reality.”
But her post came at an awkward time, just after a group of Notting Hill revelers nearly crushed people standing under a bus stop as the shelter collapsed.
Video footage taken on Sunday showed a group of carnival-goers standing on a bus stop when it collapsed, with revelers thankfully escaping with minor injuries.
A huge crowd watching the people on top of the shelter at Kensal House in Ladbroke Grove could be heard gasping and screaming in shock as it gave way and the partygoers fell to the pavement, nearly crushing four people underneath.

Two people sustained minor injuries but did not require further treatment after the incident, which took place at the end of “Family Day” when the procession returned in bright and dazzling costumes for the first time since 2019.
A statement from the Metropolitan Police on the incident said: “We are aware of video showing a bus stop collapsing in the #LadbrokeGrove area.
‘Officers responded. Two people suffered minor injuries. They needed no further treatment.”
MailOnline has reached out to Paige’s reps for comment.

The paramedic flaunted her enviable figure in a pink halter wrap dress with a daring neckline while making the most of the celebrations.
Going for an opaque bronzed makeup palette, she styled her dark tresses in glamorous waves while pinning pink sunglasses on top of her head.
Paige was seen getting in the party mood with her Love Island co-star Antigoni, 26, and a group of her friends.

Notting Hill Carnival is the largest street carnival in Europe and an estimated two million people are expected to attend over the bank holiday weekend.
The carnival first began in 1966 when about 1,000 people took part and is a popular way for African and Caribbean communities to celebrate their culture and traditions.

Yesterday began with members of the Emancipated Run Crew – dressed in green in honor of those who died in Grenfell – starting the parade, marking the official start of the Notting Hill Carnival.
Crowds of young children blowing whistles danced down the streets with their parents in tow.
The club’s co-founder Jules Stephenson said: “It (the atmosphere) is electric – everyone is so excited that the carnival is back.”
