Katie Price's financé Carl Woods reportedly had an Instagram post banned after he failed to disclose that it was an advert for a clothing brand.
The 31-year-old reality star, who proposed to 43-year-old Katie in April, is said to have worn a branded t-shirt on his Instagram in March to help promote the small label.
At the time, Carl wore a t-shirt with the word Engage and wrote: "Delighted to announced I have teamed up with @Engage_Clothing,"
In another post also posted in March, Carl told his social media followers that the Engage brand was dropping a new t-shirt design.
However, Carl failed to specify that this was a marketing ploy, and so the post was swiftly removed from social media.
Carl Woods had the Instagram post banned after he failed to disclose it was an advert
According to The Sun, neither Carls reps nor the clothing brand were aware of the requirements surrounding the labelling of adverts on social media.
The Advertising Standards Agency then revealed in a statement that his posts had breached their code.
"We understood that the branded T-shirts were not requested by Mr Woods from Engage," the ASA said, according to the publication.
"But they were sent to him following prior communication between them and his representatives, agreeing that if he liked the product he would wear it and post about it.
"We considered that the sending of T-shirts to Mr Woods as a gift constituted a payment to him.
"Because the posts were not obviously identifiable as marketing communications, we concluded that they breached the Code."
A representative for Carl Woods and the ASA has been approached by The Mirror for comment.
Carl's unfortunate social media blunder comes as he gears up to marrying Katie Price after proposing to the former glamour model at the end of April.
Although they are yet to publicly reveal a date, Katie and Carl have been busy putting together plans for their special day.

The couple are hoping to marry later this year
Speaking to The Mirror earlier this year, Katie revealed that the upcoming ceremony will be unlike anything we have seen before.
"Put it this way, the wedding that I want, if you Googled it, no one has ever done it before," she revealed.
"No wall-to-wall celeb faces. It’ll be about us, Carl and our family, coming together as one. I want the focus on Carl as much as me."
They also added that they want the ceremony to take place this year because Katie wants her mum to be well enough to attend the wedding.
