Asked why she wants to join the show, Molly said: "I think it’s ideal timing and the perfect way to find someone.
“I don’t go out and party and I don’t use dating apps, I’m actually quite old-fashioned, so there’s no better way to meet someone than by going into a Villa in the sun with the potential ‘one’ in there."

She said: “With my job being in social media, I’ve had some amazing opportunities to go on press trips and I’ve actually been out to the Love Island Villas in Mallorca and South Africa.
“Having the experience to walk around both was amazing but to now actually live in the Villa is going to be incredible."
