Love Island contestant Molly-Mae Hague has revealed the extent of the online abuse she has received since the end of the ITV2 show, saying that she has even received death threats.

In an interview with OK! magazine, the 20-year-old said: "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."

Hague said she had read the negative comments "at the start but then I had to stop". 

"I think it's best not to," she continued. "Some of the stuff that's been said about me is pretty vile. There are death threats, which really isn't nice."

Hague, who is in a relationship with fellow Love Island contestant Tommy Fury, said she had availed of the care provided by ITV to all the stars of the show.

"I've taken the support that ITV provided and it's helped," she added. "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." 

"I hate seeing Molly get trolled," said boyfriend Fury. "I think people are jealous. I've been living with her for the past two months and she's the most genuine and nicest girl I've ever met."

The full interview is published in OK! magazine on Tuesday, August 13.
