Molly-Mae Hague has addressed fans’ concerns over Maura Higgins hanging out with her boyfriend Tommy Fury.
When Maura entered the Love Island villa last summer, the Irish beauty had her sights set on the boxer, and tried to initiate a romance with him.
However, Tommy ultimately rejected Maura’s advances and ended up in a relationship with Molly-Mae – which is still going strong.
Since then, Molly-Mae and Maura have become close friends, and the trio shared photos and videos of them all hanging out over the weekend – which raised some eyebrows.
During a Q&A session on Instagram last night, Molly was asked if she’s watched back scenes of Maura and Tommy flirting on Love Island.
The 21-year-old replied: “Yes I have, and I’ve had so many messages and seen so many articles about Maura being here and hanging with me and Tommy and stuff…”
“But you guys need to understand that it’s really OK. When that Maura and Tommy situation happened in Love Island, me and Maura didn’t even know each other then, we weren’t even friends.”
“It’s a different story if it’s your mate, Jesus that’s a no go. It’s really not deep, we weren’t friends when it happened.”
Molly went on to joke that while it was OK back then, she wouldn’t be happy if Maura “tried to go for him now”.
She added: “But yeah guys don’t stress about that one, Tommy and Maura are like brother and sister now.”
“I know it seems weird to some of you guys and I get that some of you find it weird, but for us three it’s really not, we’re literally like best mates.”
