MOLLY-Mae Hague has claimed that Love Island bosses haven’t been in touch with her since she left the villa – despite having to have therapy after the show.
The 20-year-old influencer has been targeted by vicious trolls since appearing on the ITV2 dating show, which she finished in second place alongside boyfriend Tommy Fury.
Molly revealed that she had to undergo one therapy session but hasn’t heard from producers since – although she did not comment on whether she’d been contacted by the show’s separate welfare team.
Speaking to The Sun Online at the launch of her new collection with PrettyLittleThing, she explained: “I had one therapy session that was mandatory and everybody had to have.
“Producers haven’t been in touch… But that isn’t really their job, their job is when we were in the villa and we are not their responsibility now that we are out.
“I have a great network of friends, family, and management around me – everyone is so supportive, I’ve genuinely not felt the need to speak to anyone.
“It would be a very, very last resort for me to speak to a therapist, I don’t think I will ever need to do that.”
A rep for ITV assured The Sun Online: “The Love Island welfare team have been in touch with Molly-Mae and other Islanders regularly since the series ended.”
The ITV2 dating show was forced to ramp up its aftercare support ahead of this year’s series after it came under scrutiny following the tragic deaths of former contestants Mike Thalassitis and Sophie Gradon.
Producers saw their duty of care be called into question when both stars took their own lives within months of each other, overhauling their aftercare process as a result.
ITV detailed their new standards ahead of this year’s launch, revealing that their extensive support consists of three key stages – pre-filming, filming, and aftercare.
Despite not hearing from show bosses, Molly told us: “I can’t fault Love Island, they really looked after us and set us up for what was going to happen on the outside.
“I think it’s great that they even offer a therapist to us.”
Molly faced backlash from Love Island viewers during her time in the show, with cruel trolls branding her “fake” – even giving her the nickname “Money-Mae”.
But the blonde beauty insisted that she has thick skin and the nasty comments don’t impact her.
She explained: “I’m just not bothered by it. It takes a lot to affect me, maybe for other people the trolling could affect them but I’ve got very thick skin and it’ll take a lot more than somebody writing something behind a computer to get to me.
“I’m not that kind of person who would pay attention to people saying negative stuff about me as I know it’s more of a reflection on them than me.
“As long as Tommy knows how I feel about him, and my friends and family, that’s all I care about.”
Molly also slammed jealous people who are trying to destroy her “perfect” romance with Tommy.

The pair have been accused of faking their relationship, and Molly admitted that she can understand why some might think their romance is too good to be true.
She told us: “People like to pick people apart that are doing well or in a good situation.
“Mine and Tommy’s situation, to some people, may have appeared too perfect and when people see something perfect they want to tear it down and break it apart.
“That’s what they did with us, they saw that we were so strong and they didn’t like it.”
