The Daily Mail has been caught out editing photos of Justin Bieber and his girlfriend, Selena Gomez on holiday to make them look more provocative.

The Huffington Post uncovered the not so subtle tweaking today after a story appeared on the newspaper's website about the young couple enjoying a holiday in Mexico.

Selena sported a bright blue bikini for the occasion while Justin played photographer for the day and snapped photos of his sweetheart.

The altered "photograph" shows Justin staring into the distance while Selena appears to be crawling over him with the words: 'Joking around: The 19-year-old was seen leaving over her boyfriend and her [Sic] didn't appear to mind the view ' in the caption.

However, this is very unlikely to be the case as another photograph shows Justin staring into the distance in exactly the same position, but this time Selena is not crawling over him but instead sitting upright and talking to someone else in the foreground.

Its safe to say that as shocking as it may seem, Selena has been placed over Justin's body in order to make them look slightly sexier.

According to the Huffington Post, this is not the first time that the photo-editors at paper have been caught out 'creating' their own paparazzi snaps.

Back in September this year, the paper apparently altered some images of Samantha Cameron and Gwyneth Paltrow to make them look like they had posed together.

The Daily Mail declined to comment on the transformed pictures.
