Love Island's Molly-Mae Hague given 24/7 security after receiving death threats

Molly-Mae Hague now has round-the-clock security support after being targeted by trolls online.

The Love Island star has reportedly had a tough time this week.

She and boxer Tommy Fury came in second in the reality show's finale on Monday but she's divided opinion among fans ever since arriving in the villa.

Some fans of the show questioned whether she really loved Tommy and whether she was playing a game by trying to undermine other couples in the final weeks of the show.

But the scale of the abuse online, including death threats, has clearly had an effect on the 20-year-old.

The show has stepped in to make sure she always has a minder with her.

"Molly has security 24/7 to make her feel safe," a source told The Sun.

"Wherever she goes, she'll have bodyguard. She's had a rough ride on social media since joining the show and bosses wanted to look after her and make sure she's OK."

It comes after Molly-Mae and Tommy were forced to deny that they had split.

The couple hadn't been seen together since leaving the villa but a rep for them has insisted that they're still an item and are still getting to grips with their new lives.

"Tommy and Molly are very much together and so excited for what’s to come," the spokesperson said.

"They absolutely have not split. They currently have a very hectic schedule and are just adjusting to a routine."
