Molly-Mae reflects on birthday in Love Island lockdown with no family or phone as she celebrates turning 21


MOLLY-MAE Hague has reflected on her birthday in Love Island lockdown last year as she celebrated turning 21 today.

The blonde beauty’s life changed after she appeared on the ITV2 dating show, and exactly 12 months ago she was gearing up to enter the villa for the first time.

There she met and fell in love with boxer Tommy Fury, who has been spoiling her rotten with treats and surprises in their Manchester home today.

Taking to her Instagram page this evening, Molly said that she was “forever in Love Island’s debt” as she opened up to her followers.

She wrote: “Sat thinking about my birthday last year. How ironic that I was in ‘lockdown’ for that birthday too, however, it was the Love Island lockdown.

“Two weeks in a remote Spanish town on a mountain, just me and my chaperone @CharlotteWelsh and a field of goats.

“We spent my birthday eating spag bol in a tiny little cafe, the only cafe in the whole town, and my birthday present was a lilo that Char had bought from the only local shop, that we couldn’t even blow up.

“No phone, no computer, I couldn’t even talk to my family, it was so mad! I will never ever ever forget that birthday.”

Molly continued: “But I remember wondering what my 21st would be like a year on… I never EVER imagined this.

“I genuinely do feel like the luckiest girl in the world, I can’t stop smiling.

“We were so bored the whole time, honestly I will never be able to explain those two weeks.

“So happy I had Charlotte with me the whole time, it was honestly something I will NEVER forget.

“Was so worth it though, don’t get me wrong – Love Island ws the best experience of my life and the reason I met my Tommy, forever in debt.”

While Molly has been forced to spend her special day in lockdown yet again, it is world’s away from last year’s do – with Tommy surprising her with a puppy, and a Cartier diamond ring.

He filled their living area with pink balloons and the duo have been indulging in sweet treats like customised cake, cookies, and pizza all day.

It comes just weeks after Tommy turned 21, with Molly also being sure to spoil him rotten with surprises and piles of designer gifts.

The pair finished in second place during last summer’s season of Love Island, losing out on the top spot to Amber Gill and Greg O’Shea.

However, Tommy and Molly are the only couple remaining from the series, and appear to be stronger than ever before as their one-year anniversary rapidly approaches.
