“People are just so savage and I know exactly how that feels.”

Former Love Island star Molly-Mae Hague has shown her support for current contestant Tasha Ghouri, who has been having a tough time in the villa as of late.

In a video on her YouTube channel, Molly-Mae said that she understands the situation Tasha is in.

She said: “I know obviously it took [Tasha] a while to make things official with Andrew and settle down and stuff but I don’t (…) really think she’s been very problematic or done anything wrong.”

Molly-Mae then explained that during her time on the show, she faced similar questioning over her relationship with Tommy Fury, both by viewers and her fellow contestants.

“I was basically Tasha,” she said. “Everyone accusing me of being fake, everyone saying I was with Tommy to get to the final, and here we are three years on so maybe Tasha will prove you wrong, or prove the boys in the villa wrong.

“People are just so savage, and I know exactly how that feels. Everyone in the villa saying, ‘Tasha’s fake,’ like, that was literally me guys.”

Earlier this week, Dami Hope and Luca Bish apologised to Tasha for repeatedly doubting her relationship with Andrew Le Page, and promised her that they would stop.

Tasha’s father has since called for an end to the abuse Tasha has been receiving online. In an interview with The Mirror, Tarek Ghouri described the bullying of his daughter as “nasty and unnecessary”. He also called out some of the ableist and misogynistic comments he read about his daughter online.

“I don’t know what fuels people to even think like that,” he said. “They don’t even know them. It’s quite bizarre.”

Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on Virgin Media Two and on the Virgin Media Player.
