Wow: Molly-Mae Hague said she wondered ‘what she did to her face’ after having cosmetic surgery, and said we should stop ‘normalizing filler’ in the new Cosmopolitan
She said, “I was doing a club gig and took a selfie. I remember staring at it and thinking, “I don’t know what I’ve done to my face.”
The TV star added that she went from “looking like a teenager” to “someone on Botched,” a show devoted to extreme plastic surgery.
Molly-Mae added: “I’ve never considered myself insecure, but I must have been to do that.

“I was 17 when I first got my lips done, and it scares me to think that if I have a daughter in 10 years, what it could be like for her.
‘We need to stop normalizing fillers with things like ‘Kylie Jenner’ [surgery] packages.’
She added that she “sometimes forgets” how young many of her followers are, and joked that she is “surprised” that some of the girls who message her have phones.

The star, who currently has 5.5 million Instagram followers, started building her brand at a young age and “consistently cared” about what her feed looked like.
Molly reveals that by the time she was 16 she already had 8,000 followers and “made quite a bit of money off it.”
However, many people warned her not to go to Love Island for this reason in case the public didn’t love her.
Against their advice, she entered the villa in Mallorca in 2019 for the show’s fifth series, where she teamed up with beau Tommy Fury, 22.
The pair came in second in the final and Molly said she was inundated with job offers after she left.
She said: ‘I will never forget how many people wanted to work with me. They brought me flowers and one offered me a car, even though I couldn’t drive. There were huge [financial] figures are thrown around.’
And the star, who said she “never wanted an ordinary life” and is living “every girl’s dream”, isn’t worried about the end of her career.

She said, ‘Not me, because I worked very hard to protect myself from that. I can now take care of my family and I bought a car for my sister last Christmas.’
Since leaving the show, she and Tommy have grown stronger and stronger, and Molly believes they are “soulmates.”
She said, ‘My parents love him. We’re cringey and mushy, and I like that. We know we’ll be together forever.
“People speculate that we break up all the time – if Tommy doesn’t like one of my photos on Instagram, I get DMs asking about it. But we are as content as two peas in a pod.’
After leaving the show, the couple praised the aftercare, saying they “stepped up their game” and joked that sometimes “too much contact was made”.
She added: ‘The welfare team couldn’t have done more for me. They offer guidance if you need it, and I imagine they will get even better next season.”
Molly has also revealed that she is a homebody, adding that her “dream night” is a night at home “watching Harry Potter with Tommy”.
The star said: I’m not afraid of socializing and going out or going on girls’ vacations, and I don’t really drink alcohol. We go for a walk and eat at TGI Fridays. We’re not trying to be a boujee.’

Molly revealed in October that her lips are now “half the size” after her filler was removed in a candid Instagram video.

She said, “Every time I turn on my front camera, I’m like, ‘Oh my god.’ I forget that my lips are literally half the size.
“Little lip update: I think all the swelling is pretty much gone now. No existence.

Molly posted a few photos of her having a bloated pout, writing, “I don’t even like looking at these photos. I’m sick of doing that to myself. We live and we learn!’
