Love Island's Molly-Mae Hague on online abuse: Children and adults are saying the most vile and foul things

Love Island's Molly-Mae Hague told the Loose Women that she's experienced abuse on social media from children as young as 13 since leaving the villa last summer.

Molly, who is still very much coupled up with her Love Island beau, Tommy Fury, told the panel that she confronted people who were leaving her nasty messages and was shocked to discover where they were coming from.

"It's so cruel and so scary" she said, "children are literally saying the most vile and foul things and adults as well, it can often be anyone of any age."

But while the abuse has been hard to take at times, Molly insists that she hasn't let it get her down.

"It doesn't get any easier, it doesn't at all but I'm lucky that I've got Tommy and I'm quite thick skinned, because I always say if it was happening to another girl, I would worry for their mental health and I would worry for them."
