Molly-Mae claims she’s so famous she ‘can’t simply nip to shops without security guards’

TV celebrity Molly-Mae Hague claims she’s so famous that she can’t go to the shops without bringing her bodyguards.

The influencer shot to fame after finishing runner-up on ITV’s Love Island with boxer Tommy Fury in 2019 but now she says she cannot leave her house without it getting ‘crazy’.

Last week the 22-year-old was slammed for comments she made during an episode of The Diary of A CEO podcast, which she appeared as a guest, claiming ‘we all have the same 24 hours in the day’.

When asked by the host of the podcast Steven Bartlett how she pulls off leaving her home without it being crazy, Molly-Mae shared her struggles.

The star who has collected 6.2 million followers on Instagram, revealed she tends to avoid crowded locations as it never tends to be a ‘normal experience’.

She said: “It sounds like you’re being big headed when you say it but you just, someone come out with me and see, it’s not a normal experience. You have to take security, it’s not just a quick nipping out. It’s a lot.”

Last week Molly-Mae received a lot of controversy when she made comments about everyone having the same amount of hours in the day to get things done.

She talked about work ethic but followers slammed her for being ‘tone deaf’, according to Mirror Online.

During the podcast that was released on December 13th she said: “You’re given one life and it’s down to you what you do with it. You can literally go in any direction.”

Molly-Mae admitted she’d been blasted in the past when talking about work ethic due to not growing up in poverty herself so what she said wasn’t correct.

She added: “And I’m like, but technically what I’m saying is correct. We do. So I understand that we all have different backgrounds and we’re all raised in different ways and we do have different financial situations, but I do think if you want something enough, you can achieve it.”

However, Molly-Mae released a statement approaching the situation where she said she didn’t make the comments with ‘malice’.

She wrote: “I wanted to come back on online today as normal but I feel like before I do I just wanted to say this… When I say or post anything online, it is never with malice or ill intent.

“I completely appreciate that things can affect different people in different ways however I just want to stress that I would never intend to hurt or upset anyone by anything that I say or do. I apologise to the people that have been affected negatively or misunderstood the meaning of what I said in the podcast.

“The intentions of the podcast were only ever to tell my story and inspire from my own experience. Love to you all, always x.”

Despite being released back in December, the clip went viral just last week after Steven made his debut on Dragon’s Den as the youngest ever dragon.

However, he has denied any claims that the clip going viral was purposely timed and insists Molly-Mae is getting more backlash due to being a woman.
