I was on Love Island and here’s why you should say no to being a bombshell and how to pass audition, reveals Molly-Mae | The Sun

LOVE Island star Molly-Mae Hague has revealed she almost didn’t enter the villa as a bombshell after being warned against it.

The 23-year-old appeared on the show in 2019 and quickly coupled up with Tommy Fury, who she is still with now, – becoming one of the most successful Love Island couples of all time.


But the star has now said it almost didn’t happened when she was told she hadn’t made the starting line-up.

Writing about the experience in her new book, Becoming Molly-Mae, she explained: “They wanted me, but as a bombshell which meant that I'd be joining the villa as a late arrival to shake things up. I didn’t want to do it.

“My friends Steph (Lam) and Ellie (Brown) had both been on the show themselves and told me the things to look out for, one of them being that bombshells didn't always make it onto the on show as there were always quite a few of them on standby.

“The TV team was trying to persuade me otherwise, telling me I' d be the first bombshell to go in, and I thought, Nah. I was pretty sceptical about it.

“Things were going well for me business-wise: my Instagram was growing rapidly and organically. I knew that I could go on the show and potentially damage that – if you say something wrong, you could ruin your reputation, So, it was a lot to think about.

“A lot of need people were saying to me, You don really it. You can do this without it. I listened to all that … and decided that I'd do it anyway!”

Second time lucky

Molly initially auditioned for the show the year before but failed to impress producers.

Looking back, she believes she wasn’t ready at 18 to do the show really and it must have come across in her audition.

Revealing how she finally landed a coveted spot, she explained how the team actually contacted her and asked her to audition again and this time she was brimming with confidence.

She writes: “I remember saying, ‘I really think this is going to be my year. I think I am going to go on the show’. I was already believing that I was in the show and just had a really positive attitude about it.

“l went alone, whereas the previous year  I'd taken my mum and sister. And again, I just had this overwhelming feeling of I'm going to be on this show.

Key to success

“I could tell from the way the interviewer was talking to me, and the way I was talking to her. It was just right. I felt like a different girl to the one who’d been in that first audition.

“I felt different, I did my make-up differently, my hair was bleach blonde (blonder than ever!) by this point – but most of all, I had so much more confidence and I knew what to say.

 “I spoke about my past experiences with guys and was trying to make the crew laugh, thinking, If I actually just woo them here, I could get this.

“In the final interview I wore a bright pink blazer with a high-necked black top and black trousers underneath, so I walked in and said, ‘I've come dressed as a liquorice all sort today!' And they were laughing their heads off.

“I thought, I've definitely got this! I just had this good feeling.”
