They narrowly missed out on the Love Island crown

They were among the favourites to win, despite being plagued during their time on the show by accusations that their relationship was “fake”, before then being hit with rumours they’d split just days after leaving the villa.

But Molly-Mae Hague says that now she and boyfriend Tommy are out in the real world, they are going to prove to the critics just how loved-up they really are.

Molly-Mae, 20, says, “I’ve been trying to work out why people said what they’ve said. This is the most real thing I’ve ever felt in my life. I’m just excited to prove everyone wrong.”
