Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury chucked out of supermarket for breaking ‘new coronavirus rule’


Love Island's Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury denied entry to Waitrose supermarket

When it comes to the rules around coronavirus, things have been all kinds of confusing over the past year. Eat out to help out, don't eat out and help out by staying at home, socialise with only your household plus a bubble of however-bloomin'-many (outdoors). Our brains are, quite frankly, frazzled.

So it was only a matter of time before the Love Island lot found themselves making minor mishaps when it comes to COVID-19 law (and we're not just talking about the whole influencers-in-Dubai drama).

The latest pair to hit the headlines for breaking a 'new rule'? It's only flippin' Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury; who found themselves denied entry to a supermarket earlier this week. Awks.

Love Island's Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury thrown out of supermarket for breaking new coronavirus rule

Updating fans on Instagram, Molly-Mae admitted the pair have to shop together as they have 'completely different diets and buy completely different foods.'

However, the couple were forced to order an online Tesco shop as she explained, "I never do online food shopping because I way prefer to go to the shop itself.

"However we were turned away from the supermarket this week for being from the same household which I think is a new rule?"

She added that the pair can't shop for each other, claiming, "Tommy and I have completely different diets and buy completely different foods so this seems like the best option now."

Ah, we succumbed to the online shop months ago babes. Substitutions are a b-stard, though. We once got a soggy cucumber as a Ben & Jerry's 'replacement'. Fuming.

Love Islanders' RIDICULOUS Instagram earnings: ranked 👇🏽


Love Islander Instagram earnings 2021 - ranked and stacked

Georgia Harrison Instagram earnings1 of 10

Georgia Harrison

10) @georgialouiseharrison - £2,019 per postKicking things off in the bottom spot is Love Island 2017's Georgia Harrison. If this 26 year old did just one sponsored post per month, she could be taking home a comfortable £24k annual salary (...and she's defo doing more than one a month, FYI).

anton danyluk instagram earnings2 of 10

Anton Danyluk

9) @anton_danyluk - £2,244 per postNext up, we have Love Island 2019's Anton Danyluk. In February 2020, Anton declared three ADs on his Insta feed - if we inflate that to a yearly salary, the 25 year old would be taking home a whopping £80k. Wowza.

Gabby Allen instagram earnings3 of 10

Gabby Allen

8) @gabbydawnallen - £2,381 per postFollowing on from Anton is Love Island 2017's Gabby Allen. In November 2020, Gabby posted six official ads on her feed - the most of our influencers so far. Adding that up over the course of a year, Gabby's theoretical salary would be drum roll £170k. Maybe we should sign up for Love Island 2021...

Kaz crossley instagram earnings4 of 10

Kaz Crossley

7) @kazcrossley - £2,645 per postIn seventh position is Love Island 2018's Kaz Crossley. Currently in Dubai, Kaz has posted two ads this month so far, though she often posts more. Based on her #spon content this month, Kaz's predicted salary would come in at around £60k, increasing by £30k annually for every additional ad she regularly posts each month.

laura anderson instagram earnings5 of 10

Laura Anderson

6) @lauraanderson1x - £3,113 per postIn sixth position (though, tbh, they're all winners with these salaries...) is former air hostess Laura Anderson. She's posted two official ads this month, bringing her potential salary to £74k. But, as with all the influencers, ads aren't the be all and end all. Influencers can be paid for things such as exposure and, most commonly, they can be paid through experiences and commodities - e.g. mini breaks, clothes etc.

zara mcdermott instagram earnings6 of 10

Zara McDermott

5) @zara_mcdermott - £3,143 per postGetting into the bigger names now. Zara McDermott comes in fifth position with £3,143 per post. This is what the 24 year old could earn solely through her Instagram, not to mention her contract with Made in Chelsea, her new fitness-wear range with Missguided - for this very much up and coming influencer, the possibilities are endless.

Shaughna Phillips Instagram earnings7 of 10

Shaughna Phillips

4) @shaughnaphillips - £3,294 per postNext up, and rather a surprise entry, is Love Island 2020's Shaughna Phillips. It's been less than a year since this Islander left the villa and she's already filling one of the top spots for her potential Insta earnings. She's posted three ads this month, bringing her predicted salary to a pukka £118k, but we have a feeling social media is just the tip of the iceberg for this one.

alex bowen instagram earnings8 of 10

Alex Bowen

3) @ab_bowen - £3,412 per postInto our top three, Alex Bowen was Love Island series two's runner up along with wife Olivia. The pair have been somewhat of a power couple since leaving the villa, and it's not a surprise brands are willing to pay for the 28 year old's whopping 1.6million followers exposure. Still, £3,412 - that's 11% of the UK's median income (in 2019, according to ONS).

Tommy Fury Instagram Earnings9 of 10

Tommy Fury

2) @tommytntfury - £6,724 per post...Followed by one half of what's arguably the UK's biggest influencer power couple, Mr. Tommy Fury. Tommy rakes in almost double Alex's per post earnings with a whopping £6,724 and that's not even including his winnings as a professional boxer.

molly-mae hague instagram earnings10 of 10

Molly-Mae Hague

1) @mollymaehague - £10,690 per postAnd finally, Love Island's highest influencer earner, Molly-Mae Hague. This comes as absolutely no surprise with Molly having set up her own tanning brand, a babein' collection with PLT and her own YouTube channel with 1.43million subscribers. All in the two years since she and Tommy became Love Island runners up. This girl is a savvy businesswoman and she's not to be messed with, if you ask us.

This all comes after Love Island star Laura Anderson recently addressed the backlash she's faced for holidaying in Dubai amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Forced to delete comments on her posts, she said, "If you don’t have anything nice to say please do not comment 🙏🏼."

Laura continued, "Guys I’m sorry to delete negative comments. Some have valid points but I can’t argue every day. I’ve so much to say but I can’t win on such a fragile topic or speak for anyone other than myself.

"The reality for me coming here prior to lockdown just as an FYI was so I could still earn money because I ain’t a millionaire 🙈. I live alone in Glasgow with no family or friends close enough that are allowed to travel to me.

"So for my own mental health being in Dubai I can be around my family and friends that still live here since I lived here for eight years prior to Love Island. I still call UAE home. I’m definitely not out and about every day as I need to be on my laptop working and life here is strict but has loosened recently due to a lot worse restrictions that we enjoyed at the start. Some of you may already know all of this or you may not care.

"Thanks for your energy, I can take the punching bag treatment most of the time and to be honest I’d rather be the person you gave it out to 🙌🏼."
