Instagram acknowledges my email change but wants me to confirm on my old email.

So I used to have an old email linked to my Instagram, that I don't have access to anymore (I don't think I could get access again).

However, 3 weeks ago I realised this was pretty stupid cause if anything happened I don't have access. So ironically I changed the email to my current one.

Yet a few days later, my Instagram account is flagged up as suspicious and it asks me to confirm its me using the account through the OLD email.

Instagram sends me emails to my new email address all the time, it doesn't even recognise my old email when I try to log in. So why do I have to confirm through the old email? I have no idea what to do and Instagram aren't great at communication.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!
