Love Island's Molly-Mae Hague is always being honest with her fans - and the reality telly star has spoken candidly about her experience with getting jaw filler when she was 18, saying it was something she had to 'fix in the long run'.

Pre-lockdown, Molly filmed a video with YouTuber Patricia Bright, where she answered questions from fans about things they were too scared to ask their mums.

The topic came up when one follower messaged to ask for advice about telling their mother they wanted fillers or surgery - and, calling on her own experience, the reality star advised that those considering fillers should definitely talk about it with their parents.

"I didn't tell my mum the first time I had fillers because I was petrified of what she was going to say," Molly admitted. "But when I actually had them done, she noticed, she's my mum...I wish I listened to my mum more about fillers because it's something I had to change.

"If I had listened, it wouldn't have been something I had to try and fix in the long run."

The influencer also admitted she was worried for young people growing up now, who might think getting surgery is normal. 'I'm so scared for the children that are growing up now,’ she added. ‘At the age of 18, I felt that I needed to do that. For kids growing up now, they're going to think it's the norm.'

Molly - who now has over four million followers on Instagram - also said she has been a victim of trolling because of it, too.

"In the long run it makes you look worse. I was trying to sharpen this area here," she said, gesturing to her chin. "What it did was make it look bigger. It looked like I had jowls. I had “square head”, “blockhead”. People called me Quagmire [from Family Gu_y_]. The worst one is that I look like an X-Box controller!"
