Occasional singer and full-time piss-taker James Blunt is back to his brutal best over on Twitter.
Although, actually, he never went away, he's been there quietly ripping into people on the social media site for years, unrelentingly.
His latest couple of tweets have earned a collective 28,000 likes, thanks to his classic combo move of searching his own name and then going in on anyone he finds tweeting about him. Well, if it's not broke, don't fix it, eh?
In one tweet, the original poster appears to be referencing Love Island, where one contestant recently said that telling someone they 'look like someone who listens to James Blunt' translates to 'the worst thing you can say [about] someone'.
I reckon that fella needs to get out more, I've had much worse said to me in the comments section on here.
You look like someone that watches #LoveIsland https://t.co/GPrttqraQs

Anyway, someone took to Twitter to share the 'insult', only to have James find it and respond telling her she looks like someone who watches Love Island. Fair comment, I guess.
Spotting his tactic, another social media user tells Blunt that he's the sort of person who searches for his own name on Twitter - and, well, yeah, he does. And he'll probably take the piss out of you if you've used it.
Omar is the type of person who searches for his name on Twitter and doesn't find anything. https://t.co/3XeWN0Wuoz

Fans of the show are now waiting for Blunt to take the Love Island contestant himself to task over his comments, but as yet, the singer's not said anything. Maybe he's waiting until the show is over:
Come on, mate, do it. Can't wait to see this meeting of minds play out on Twitter. Truly, it will be a clash of the Titans to rival the likes of Ali vs Frazier, Tyson vs Holyfield or even KSI vs Logan Paul.
Whatever you think of his music, you have to admit James Blunt is pretty funny on social media.
