Molly-Mae Hague has addressed why she would no longer choose to be a model after a fan asked her for some tips to get into the modelling industry.
In a Q&A on Instagram, the former Love Island star, 21, told her fans of the time she was “scouted” out by an agent, revealing it used to be her dream to get into modelling when she was younger.
However, after a fan asked: “Tips for getting into modelling,” Molly, who recently revealed she is on a "health kick", began to detail why she would no longer choose to go into the profession after her "awful" experience.

Before recalling the time, she captioned the video by writing: “I do kinda model but in a different way. Also getting scouted isn’t embarrassing lol just talking about this story is.”
“I definitely don’t do modelling but I have the funniest story and it happened to me when I was younger,” she shared.
“It’s not funny but it still traumatises me to this day. Basically, I was on a train and I got ‘scouted’. It’s so embarrassing.”

Molly explained: “This woman from this modelling agency, she scouted me and she said please can you come in tomorrow, we’ll have a meeting, and potentially sign you.
“So, I was absolutely buzzing! I always wanted to be a model when I was younger, but definitely not anymore.”
The star continued: “I went into London, I cancelled work for the day. I went into a meeting with this woman. She got me to stand up in front of her and other people and do a little twirl in all black clothing and stuff with no make-up. She literally took one look at me and went, ‘Yeah, no, sorry. I’ve made a mistake. You’re not the right shape to be a model.’”

Molly-Mae went on to explain how she felt at the time, adding: “I literally was traumatised. I was trying to be all polite, whereas if that happened now, it would be a different story.
“I was like, ‘Can you give me constructive criticism? What wasn’t right about me?’ She was like, ‘You looked different on the train. Your legs looked different.’ Honestly it was awful.”
The Pretty Little Thing sensation then said she thinks the modelling industry is a “cutthroat industry”.
“Yeah, I just had to tell that story because whenever someone talks about modelling I just think of that day and taking the day off work, getting on the train and being so excited,” she shared.
“That woman just shut me down like that and it was so so so bad. If anyone watching this has had that happen to them before, screw the person who did that to you.”
Molly-Mae concluded with her fans: “I still think about it to this day. I’m not bothered by it but the modelling industry is so cutthroat, so harsh and so unfair. Yeah, not nice.”
