Taking part in a show as huge as Love Island changes your life forever. Sure, you get a load of new followers, however with attention there will always be trolls and criticism.
Love Island runner-up, Molly-Mae Hague is reportedly in therapy following the show ending after she was reportedly struggling to cope with her new-found fame and the trolls who have targeted her.
Fans wondered why Molly-Mae hadn’t been sharing any pictures on social media up until very recently, but according to The Sun, the break was intentional.
An insider said: “It’s been really difficult for Molly-Mae since leaving the show.
“She’s always had a really positive experience online but has been cruelly targeted since going on Love Island. It’s been incredibly upsetting for her and she’s really struggled to understand why it’s happened to her,
“She decided to take up the offer of therapy to try and get her head around it all and hopefully get back to her old self soon. All the Islanders are offered it but everyone has been particularly worried about her since the show and have insisted she get some help to cope with it all,
“She was also advised to take a break from being online, which she has taken onboard.”
They continued: “Out of everyone on the show Molly-Mae has struggled the most, which is both surprising and upsetting considering she was always an influencer.
“It’s been a worrying situation for everyone.”
All of the islanders are offered support both on and off the show. During her time on the island, Amy Hart was whisked off for therapy after her and Curtis split.
At the time, a Love Island rep confirmed: “We have dedicated welfare producers and psychological support on hand at all times who monitor and regularly speak to all of the Islanders in private and off camera, especially if someone appears to be upset,
“All the Islanders are therefore fully supported by the professionals on site and by their friends in the villa. This means Islanders are always able to reach out and talk to someone if they feel the need. We will of course continue to monitor all of our Islanders in line with our robust protocols,
“Love Island holds a mirror up to relationships and all the different dynamics that go with them.”
