This week Molly-Mae Hague admitted that she’s “been keeping a huge secret” from fans for the last year, announcing that she was finally able to share that she’d written a book.

The memoir, called Becoming Molly-Mae, will “take oversharing to a new extreme level” as she talks about her life before and after rising to considerable fame on Love Island in 2019.

Sharing a video with fans in which she shows off the glossy cover of the hardback copy, Molly-Mae said, “Literally, this is my baby, we have honestly put so many months of work into this book you have no idea and it's been such a journey and such an adventure, venturing into this whole new world of writing a book, it is something that I have always, always wanted to do.

“It has been a massive dream of mine. You guys obviously know that I am a massive over sharer but in this book I share oversharing to a whole new extreme.”

She continued, “I have spoken about things in this book that I have have only told close family members and friends. You really do get the full BTS the whole behind the scenes up until this very point.

“So my whole journey. It is just very special to me and I could just burst with the fact that I am now able to talk to you guys about it and it is now available to pre-order.”

The book is published by publishing powerhouse Penguin and will be available to buy in store from the 9th of June and is available to pre-order now.

Social media influencer Molly-Mae is known for sharing every aspect of her life with fans, from her relationship with Love Island co-star Tommy Fury to her controversial opinions, but what else might we see in the book?

Molly-Mae's life before Love Island

We all know that before Molly-Mae was scouted for Love Island in 2019, she was already earning a living as an influencer. Before that, she worked at her local leisure centre as a life guard with her sister Zoe for three years.

Molly-Mae's company Filter

It's fair to say that Molly-Mae is a businesswoman in every sense of the word - especially since she was appointed Creative Director for global fast fashion brand PrettyLittleThing - but in 2020 she actually launched her own fake tan business called Filter by Molly-Mae which has had major success.

Molly-Mae '24 hours in a day' controversy

In January 2022 Molly-Mae faced serious backlash after she joined Steven Bartlett on his Diary of a CEO podcast and claimed “we all have the same 24 hours in a day," while discussing her success as an influencer.

She was blasted by critics who called her comments “tone-deaf” and “privileged” after reports of workers employed by PLT in Leicester were payed just £3.25 p/h or less.

Molly later apologised for her comments in a statement issued on Instagram, as 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.”

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

Molly-Mae's family

Molly-Mae was brought up by a well-heeled family in the Home Counties with her dad Stephen, mum Debbie and sister Zoe. Both her parents were police officers and Zoe is in the army.

Wading into the Steven Bartlett controversy, Stephen said, “It must be so tough for media stars, influencers and public figures. Especially the younger ones who are still learning the emotional rollercoaster of life.

“And it hurts me to see people literally driven to death by cruel comments of people who don’t even know the individuals and hide behind a keyboard often on fake accounts cancelling someone for something five, six, seven or 10 years ago when a child, is profoundly naive and shows a real lack of emotional intelligence.”

Molly-Mae's boyfriend Tommy Fury

Of course, Molly-Mae's success would be nowhere near what it is today if it wasn't for Love Island her boxer boyfriend Tommy. They are the only remaining couple from the series and she's sure to go into plenty of detail about their relationship behind closed doors.

Molly-Mae's pets

Back in June 2020, Molly-Mae and Tommy introduced an adorable new addition to their family, a Pomeranian puppy called Mr Chai, who they'd had flown in from Russia. However tragedy struck Mr Chai just days after arriving and it emerged he had multiple health issues after being bred on a puppy farm.

Fast forward to February 2022 and they're giving pet ownership another go after buying two kittens called Eggy and Bread. ADORBS.

Molly-Mae Hague's burglary

In October 2021 Molly-Mae and Tommy had their Manchester flat burgled, with nearly £1m worth of stuff stolen.

Following the robbery some social media users suggested that Molly was responsible because of her job as an influencer and “flaunting” her wealthy lifestyle online.

“It was just awful, horrendous, terrible. So we have been dealing with a lot,” she said in a tearful video on her YouTube channel.
