Love Island’s Molly-Mae Hague has revealed her new way of living following her recent burglary.

The star and her boyfriend Tommy Fury had their Manchester home burgled by "professional" thieves earlier this year, emptying it of almost £800,000 worth of belongings.

And now Molly-Mae has revealed how the event is still affecting her life.

Speaking on The Diary of a CEO podcast, the Love Islander star said she employs round the clock security and is too frightened to order a takeaway as she doesn't want people to know where she lives

As much as she would love to take fans on a tour of her and Tommy's London new home, which they moved to following the robbery, Molly-Mae said she won’t take the risk, "I don't want to change the way I live. I love sharing everything, but if it's going to compromise my safety. I can't. It's not fair. I'm trying to work on this new balance of sharing, but not over sharing so that I make me and Tommy not safe”.

Molly continued, "It's finding this new way of living, and having close protection security now, and moving and making sure not even my nail tech so much as comes to my house. Because I can't have anybody knowing where I live now - even Deliveroo, no, can't, it's just not possible, it's just not safe.

"It takes one wrong person to know where you live. It's sad that at 22 years old you have to think that way.”

"I actually have close protection security now - it's 24/7. I don't know if forever. It's just mad having to put these precautions in place now", Molly said.

She went on to speak about how the burglary has made her think differently about life, "I don't really wear my jewellery any more. What I have left of it I'm not wearing. It changed things for me” she said.

“It took that superficialness away. It just made me realise actually these things aren't really important. Your health, and your happiness, and your safety, safety is key”.

Speaking about her new security, Molly added "I'm spending a fortune now on security, but really there's no price in feeling safe at all. I'd rather spend money on security than a handbag."

Molly replied to fans in a tearful YouTube video in November, following accusations that she had flaunted her lavish lifestyle which had led to the robbery.

“Do I share too much? Did I do the wrong thing?” she said.

“It’s really, really hard to find that balance between sharing so that you guys want to keep up with my life and see what I’m doing, but also keeping my life private so that I stay safe and I think I potentially maybe lost that balance. It’s nobody’s fault, it’s just a truly, truly awful thing to have happened.”
