LOVE Island star Molly-Mae Hague gushed over boyfriend Tommy Fury’s sweet behaviour as he cuddled with her soft toy, Elly-Belly.
The reality show runner up’s stuffed elephant became almost as iconic as the couple in the ITV2 reality TV series, after the blogger bought her into the sun-soaked villa.
Proving boxer Tommy’s relationship with her toy was still strong, Molly told how he had flown to the UK especially for her mum’s birthday.
Taking a nap from the party proceedings he was seen snuggled up to the pale grey and green animal as he cosied on her bed.
Elly-Belly was seen spread flat out over Tommy’s face, with its trunk resting on Tommy’s forehead as he lay on his back.
Clearly touched by the cute scenes, Molly took to her Instagram stories to put: “Straight off the plane from Ibiza to see my mum for her bday.”
The elephant appeared to be taking a much-needed snooze too, after a particularly lively summer which saw it hog a significant amount of screen time.
Molly, 20, was convinced Tommy wouldn’t opt to stay coupled up with her after spotting Elly-Belly was not on her bed shortly prior to the Casa Amor de-brief.
Yet Tommy, ever the romantic, later appeared clutching Elly-Belly as he returned to tell her he wanted to stay with her.
He had in fact been keeping the toy with him because he missed the Pretty Little Thing ambassador so much.
Since their villa exit, the couple have been going from strength to strength, with the Sun reporting how they had moved in together in Manchester.
They recently returned from a trip to Las Vegas to witness Tommy’s brother, Tyson Fury, in the ring.
Meanwhile Molly has shunned speculation of a rift with her fellow Love Island alumni.
Talking of the exemption of singletons such as Yewande from her fashion launch, she exclusively told The Sun Online: “At the end of the day, I invited people to the party that I was really close with in the villa, it was nothing against Yewande – I think she is a great girl.

“I wasn’t close to her and she would admit that herself, it would be wrong for her to say that we were because we barely spoke, we weren’t in the same group.
“Her, Anna and Amber were very close and that is just how it was, it was never out of malice that I didn’t invite her.
“Me and Maura were so close in the villa and we barely have time to speak since coming out, so people like Yewande, who I wasn’t even close with… It’s not something that you would really prioritise and it’s like that with a lot of people since coming out of the villa, there’s a lot of people I don’t speak to.”
