Say what you want about Love Island but it sure is entertaining.

We've had ten series of the dating show but we have to admit, Love Island 2019 is one of our favourites.

Whether it was Anna Vakili screaming "TWO DAYS" in Jordan Hames' face after he tried to crack on with India Reynolds, or Ovie Soko being one of the hottest Islanders ever - we don't think ITV producers will ever be able to top it.

And while the drama was... giving. It was also the series that made us realise that the show does actually work because four years later and Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury are still totally loved up.

They've been through a lot together, so we thought we'd have a look at what Molly-Mae has been up to since the show and who she's still friends with from the villa.

Who is Molly-Mae Hague?

Molly was an influencer before fame but it was her stint on Love Island 2019 that put her in the spotlight.

How old is Molly-Mae Hague?

Molly is 24 years old. Her birthday is 26 May 1999.

When was Molly-Mae Hague on Love Island?

Molly took part in series five of Love Island alongside Amber Gill, Amy Hart and Curtis Pritchard.

How old was Molly-Mae on Love Island?

When Molly was on Love Island she was only 20 years old - one of the youngest Islanders of that series.

Who did Molly-Mae Hague couple up with on Love Island?

Molly was the third bombshell to enter Love Island (after Curtis and Tommy) and straight away had a connection with Tommy.

However after Danny Williams entered the villa her heard turned slightly and there was even talks of getting to know Anton Danyluk.

Things changed when Maura Higgins arrived and ruffled Molly's feathers but during the next recoupling Tommy chose Molly.

Are Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury still together?

They sure are. Molly and Tommy are one of the few Love Island couples that are still together.

Not only have they started a family but in July 2023 they got engaged in Ibiza.

What happened with Molly-Mae Hague and Anton Danyluk?

After Molly entered the villa there was a love triangle brewing between Molly, Tommy and Anton however the boxer managed to win her over.

Things took a turn when Anton kept claiming that Molly was playing a game, he also interfered when Lucie Donlan wanted to get to know Tommy (more on that in a bit).

However things went to another level during the Love Island reunion when it came to light that Anton had unfollowed Molly.

He has since admitted that he was wrong in thinking Molly and Tommy wouldn't last in real life.

What happened with Molly-Mae Hague and Lucie Donlan?

Following Lucie's rocky friendship with the rest of the 2019 girls, Molly arrived and they both seemed to really get on.

That was until the tweet challenge where viewers hinted that Tommy and Lucie should recouple. After Maura asked Lucie if she'd get to know Tommy the surfer said, "Never say never."

Things took another step when Anton got involved and encouraged Lucie to speak to Tommy. After the boxer made it clear he only had eyes for Molly, Anton asked Tommy not to tell any of the girls (including Molly) about Lucie's confession, in order to keep the "peace" in the villa.

Luckily Curtis told Tommy to confess all the Molly and he did. Things between Lucie and Molly were awkward and it's safe to say that they're not friends anymore.

Are Molly-Mae Hague and Maura Higgins still friends?

When Maura arrived in the villa as a bombshell, she quickly made it clear that she was into Tommy.

However at the recoupling, Tommy picked Molly and surprisingly Maura and Molly became besties straight after.

Molly has since spoken out about their friendship and said on Instagram, "I’ve had so many messages about Maura being here and hanging out with me and Tommy and stuff, you have to understand that it’s really ok.

"Tommy and Maura are like brother and sister now, I know that seems weird to some of you guys… but for us three it’s really not. We’re like best mates."

Fast forward to 2023 and Molly and Maura are still BFFs.

Did Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury win Love Island?

Surprisingly no. Molly and Tommy came second place after Amber and Greg O'Shea.

Who is Molly-Mae Hague friends with from Love Island?

Other than Maura we're not actually sure, shortly after leaving the villa Molly revealed she's not friends with Yewande Biala.

She's previously opened up about why she doesn't speak to any of the 2019 Islanders and in 2021 she revealed she only has five friends.

Speaking on the Diary of a CEO she admitted, "Straight up no, no I don't [have lots of friends]. My circle is minuscule. I have literally about five people in my circle, and that includes friends.

"I have acquaintances and I have people in my life that I say are my friends but, no, my circle is absolutely tiny. And I like it that way, I wouldn't have it any other way.

"I work, I spend time with my boyfriend and I go to bed. That is literally my life."

She went on to say, "I've lost a lot of friends since coming off Love Island because I don't have the time... It sounds savage but sometimes friends, they just – not cling on, but they don't add much.

"I’m not that girl from Hitchin any more. I’m not that young girl that was a lifeguard at Hitchin swimming pool. That’s not me.

"I’m living in a different world now and a lot of my friends can’t relate to that. And even though I'm still the same person, my life and my circumstances are just so different that you do just naturally... people just fall off."
