You really haven't spent enough time on the internet until you've fallen into a dark hole of conspiracy at 3am, knowing in your heart that it's all bullsh**t, but also sort of... believing it.

They analysed past videos, which apparently never showed her writing her name at book signings and echoing her co-presenters at awards shows. Plus, they pointed out how her Instagram captions were regularly just emojis.
To her credit, Lea took it really well:
