Molly-Mae Hague sought out therapist following '24 hours' scandal

Molly-Mae has opened up about the aftermath of the backlash she received following the 'everyone has the same 24 hours' comments she made late last year.

Though contestants of Love Island are not ones to shy away from massive media attention, Molly-Mae was not ready for the backlash she received calling into question her privilege.

'Everyone has the same 24 hours'

Late last year, Molly-Mae went viral when she told host Steven Bartlett on The Diary of a CEO podcast:

I understand we all have different backgrounds and we're all raised in different ways and we do have different financial situations, but I think if you want something enough you can achieve it. It just depends on what lengths you want to go to get where you want to be in the future. And I'll go to any length.

For which many weighed in saying that her privilege has blinded her from the real debilitating struggles that the poor and discriminated have to face on a daily basis. Since having defended her stance and the scandal having died down subsequently after, Hague has revealed that she sought out a therapist to help her deal with the aftermath.

'It's good for me to control my thoughts'

Taking to her YouTube channel, the 22-year-old social media influencer has admitted to having resorted to the help of a therapist to help her unpack the events that had transpired. She explained:

I did get a therapist. I got it a few months ago because I thought at the time I really, really needed it. She helped me understand it's good for me to control my thoughts, that's something I've been working on recently and my next goal is to continue working on being in a good place mentally.

And added:

I got to a place in my life a few months ago where I was really struggling with things. I hate to burden people around me with my problems.They've got their own things to worry about. I kind of felt like if I got a therapist this would be a good place for me to offload and just talk about how I'm feeling.
