Love Island's Molly-Mae Hague Brushes Off Social Media Abuse: 'Nothing Can Burst My Bubble'

The former contestant has received a torrent of "vile" messages since leaving the show, but isn't letting them get her down.

Former Love Island star Molly-Mae Hague has insisted she’s not letting online abuse get her down as she’s too busy enjoying life after leaving the show.

While it’s inevitable (but nonetheless awful) that there’ll always be some negativity on social media about the contestants on a show as big as Love Island, the comments about Molly-Mae have been pretty next-level.

Fortunately, in a new interview with OK! magazine Molly-Mae has assured her supporters that the “vile” messages aren’t spoiling her good time, even if they can be “hard to hear”.

“I’ve been having the same after-care as everyone else. I’ve taken the support that ITV provided and it’s helped,” she explained.

“People keep sending messages like: “Pray for Molly-Mae, I hope she’s okay”, but I’m literally sat here loving my life. I’m so happy, nothing can burst my bubble; what the public think is irrelevant.”

She added: “I knew I was going to get my fair share of hate but I didn’t know it would be to this extent.

“To be called fake and all these horrible names like ‘Money-Mae’ when I haven’t actually done anything wrong was a shock. It is hard to hear.”

Social media influencer Molly-Mae finished in second place in this year’s Love Island, alongside boxer Tommy Fury, who she’d been in a romance with since the early days of the series.

She is one of several stars from the most recent run to praise ITV’s aftercare system, with Amy Hart also speaking highly of the support she’s received from the show since leaving the villa.

It was well-documented that ITV was making big changes to their duty of care ahead of this year’s series, following the deaths of former contestants Sophie Gradon and Mike Thalassitis within a year of each other.

This included a minimum of eight therapy sessions after leaving the villa, as well as specific training on social media and financial management.
