The Love Island star, 21, took to Instagram on Wednesday to reveal that she was giving away a massive haul of goods – including Louis Vuitton bags – as she celebrates garnering 1million YouTube subscribers.
However, she soon found herself to be the target of relentless trolling on Twitter, after several men complained that the competition post, which has been liked and shared more than 1 million times, was clogging up their feeds.

She said: ‘I’ve been kind of trying to not look at Twitter too much just because even though it’s meant to be a lovely thing and something we can all enjoy together people still have their mad opinions on it always.

The television personality had been trying to film to a ‘come shopping with me’ video, but felt shaken when rowdy men began to name-call her.
She said: ‘Guys I’m way too embarrassed to vlog out in public. I don’t know what has happened to me. My confidence has just gone and I haven’t vlogged in any of the shops because everybody is staring at me.
‘I’m going to have actually put the camera down guys, I’m sorry. ‘

While waiting for a taxi, she said: ‘Okay guys there are some men heckling me now.
‘This is why I just cannot vlog in public guys, listen to this,’ she said, as a man shouted ‘oi blondie’ in the background.
Feeling scared, she continued: ‘I’m just going to ignore it, just ignore it. It’s fine,’ before picking the camera up again when she was safely in the car.
Meanwhile, Molly-Mae recently revealed it won’t be long until she and her beau Tommy Fury, also 21, start a family.
The media personality was quizzed by fans about her plans to have a baby during an Instagram Q&A, where she told her followers she has always seen herself as a young mother.
When asked when they will try for a baby, Molly-Mae, who met Tommy in 2019, said: ‘Probably not ages, like, I’ve always wanted to have a baby slightly younger anyway, so not going to be super, super old or not going to be super, super young.’
The blonde also answered the question: ‘If you could meet Tommy again without the fame, would you?’
She replied: ‘Well this is the nice thing about how we met, we met on Love Island and I didn’t know who he was, he didn’t know who I was. It was a really natural and nice way of meeting.’
Where it all began: The couple met during their stint on Love Island in the summer of 2019. They finished second-place to Amber Gill and Greg O’Shea
