Molly-Mae Hague admits she's 'worked hard' to 'distance herself' from Love Island after shooting to fame as finalist
MOLLY-MAE Hague has revealed she has tried to distance herself from Love Island despite rising to fame on the show.
The influencer – who appeared on the 2019 series of the ITV show – has become one of the most successful contestants, landing her very own self-tanning brand and a six-figure fashion deal.
Her romance with boxer boyfriend Tommy Fury – who is set to go head to head with Anthony Taylor in the ring – is also still going strong.
But despite this, eagle-eyed fans may have noticed that Molly has made very little mention about Love Island since leaving the show, particularly on social media.
Speaking in a Question and Answer segment with her fan recently, the TV star admitted that she's distanced herself from the show in recent years and actively tries to avoid talking about it.
Molly explained: "I've been getting so many questions about the new contestants and I wasn't going to speak about it.
"Obviously the last two years I have spent so much time not necessarily removing myself, because my job was an influencer before, but I wanted to go back to what I was doing before without that brand of being a Love Islander or just being known for that.
"I definitely have spent a lot of time since I came out of the show removing myself from that stereotype and by doing that I just don't speak about it a lot."
Revealing why she hadn't been tweeting much about the show, Molly told her fans that she didn't want to be placed in the "Love Island bracket."
"My work is so important and my job is everything to me and I guess I think about these things a lot," she said.
"That's quite an honest thing for me to tell you guys, but that's just the truth."
Elsewhere during the Q&A, Molly did mention this years' Love Island contestant Chloe Burrows, who was the victim of cruel social media trolling after entering the villa.
The influencer said: "I did see that Chloe's family had to put a statement out asking people to lay off the hate.
"It made me really sad to see because I imagine my sister and my family could really relate to that and I'm surprised my family didn't do something like that while I was in there because I was pretty bad for the hate."
