Molly-Mae Hague was a late arrival to the Love Island villa, and yet we feel like she's been there forever! From getting off to a shaky start by fancying both Anton, Tommy and Danny, Molly-Mae decided Tommy was the one for her (especially when Maura showed up with eyes for only him). Of course, all has calmed down now, and we are all about team Molly-Mae and Tommy! Find out everything you need to know about one of this year's most popular contestants...

Who is Molly-Mae and what is her job?

Molly-Mae is 20, hails from Hertfordshire, and works as a social media influencer. She also has a popular YouTube channel with over 25 thousand subscribers, where she vlogs and shares popular 'shopping haul' videos on her latest purchases. Ahead of Love Island, the 20-year-old already had 150k followers, which has now risen to 281k, just one day after she made her Love Island debut. Just a few weeks into her time in the villa, she now has 1.2million followers.

She is a social media influencer

Speaking about her personality in her introduction video, she explained: "I am very laid back and easy going. What you see is what you get with me. I'm an open book, I'm easy to talk to and approachable and I'm very chilled. I can talk to anyone. Nothing is ever awkward with me. If someone was deeply involved with someone and had deep feelings, I would try and still get what I want but not try and upset anyone." Do we think that Tommy would describe her as laid back? Maybe not!

Who has Molly-Mae been in relationships with?

The social media star previously dated Leicester City football player James Maddison, and alluded to the experience as one of her worst dates. She explained: "One time I got asked to go to this guy’s house and he said he'd pay me the money back for my taxi there. He was a footballer and he lived a long way away from me. When I left I told him to just transfer me a quarter of the cost, trying to be polite and he fully did! Even though he asked me to go and he was a Premier League footballer who could totally afford the whole cost!"

It has also been reported that she was dating DJ Nathan Dawes just one week ahead of entering the villa. While a source told The Mirror that she was "still very much in touch with Nathan", a spokesperson for the influencer has confirmed that she is indeed single.
