Love Island's Molly-Mae opens up

Molly-Mae faced a lot of backlash during her time in the Love Island villa with many branding her 'Money-Mae.'

In a brand new interview with OK! this week, she admits, "Some of the stuff that’s been said about me is pretty vile."

Molly-Mae joins her boyfriend Tommy for an interview with the magazine about life on the outside.

She admits, “Since leaving the villa we’re feeling overwhelmed, I’d say.”

Tommy adds, “Overwhelmed, but taking everything in our stride and taking everything as it comes.”

Newfound fame

Molly-Mae says they're finding it difficult to come to terms with their newfound fame.

“I would say the weirdest thing that’s happened since leaving the villa would be when we went shopping and just people asking for pictures!"

"It gets quite hard to adjust.”

While Tommy says, "We went on a shopping trip and it should have taken 20 minutes really, in hindsight."

"But we were there for about four or five hours!”

“I’ve taken the support that ITV provided and it’s helped."

"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.”

Death threats and vile comments

However, nothing could have prepared her for the "vile" comments and "death threats."

“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."

“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.”
