Love Island's Molly-Mae Hague hits back at haters after receiving death threats

Molly-Mae

Molly-Mae Hague has opened up on life after Love Island, hitting back at the haters amid death threats.

It was Greg O'Shea & Amber Gill who won love Island 2019 this summer, triumphing over Molly-Mae and boyfriend Tommy Fury who finished in second place.

Ovie Soko & India Reynolds were in third with Curtis Pritchard & Maura Higgins completing the final line up in forth place.

Having spent two weeks adjusting to life outside the villa, Molly-Mae this week spoke out about the hate she's received.

In an interview with OK! Magazine, Molly-Mae revealed: "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."

The 20-year-old also shared how she had been receiving death threats over her time on the show.

She explained: "I did [read the negative comments] at the start but then I had to stop; I think it's best not to. Some of the stuff that's been said about me is pretty vile. There are death threats, which really isn't nice."

Tommy defended Molly from the 'fake' claims, declaring Molly "the most genuine and nicest girl I’ve ever met" and claiming that the trolls were "jealous".

Molly meanwhile vowed not to let the haters get her down.

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

Meanwhile, Love Island will return to ITV2 in the new year for its first ever winter series.
