Love Island star Molly-Mae Hague has returned to social media after the death of her dog Mr Chai. Molly-Mae and boyfriend Tommy Fury’s pomeranian puppy died just six days after they welcomed him into their home. The couple shared that the poor pup had a series of health issues, including his skull not forming properly, exposing part of his brain. Many people were outraged, accusing them of only getting the dog for Instagram photo opportunities. In a video they hit back at online trolls, with Molly-Mae stepping back from social media. Molly-Mae and Tommy were recently spotted packing up their belongings and moving out of their Manchester flat.
Now the Love Island star has shared a sneak peek inside their new pad, posting a picture on Instagram of all their stuff in boxes. She told fans that they needed ‘a change of scenery’.
Addressing the recent furore, Molly-Mae said on her Instagram Stories: ‘I don’t want to dwell on the last couple of weeks but what I do want to say is thank you. ‘Thank you to every single person who has sent me such thoughtful messages asking me how I am and making sure I’m okay, it has meant the world to me.
‘I’ve enjoyed a much needed break from my phone but I’m back now and ready to get stuck into some really exciting things I have coming up.’ The reality TV star also posted a glam shot of herself on the patio of her new home, showing off its sleek and simple decor including a huge, comfortable grey sofa.
She also posted a snap of their telly (they were watching the boxing, obvs) sharing that she and Tommy are having a ‘lazy Sunday’, adding another pic of her man chilling out in the front room. In a YouTube video, the couple became very emotional as they spoke about their decision to buy from a seller who had brought the dog over from Russia
‘People that are saying we bought him for Instagram likes, please stop saying that,’ Molly-Mae told viewers, adding that she had made certificates proving all the pups injections had been done. ‘Our lives are on social media, my full-time job is to show you guys what I’m doing,’ she said. ‘If I didn’t have Instagram, he wouldn’t be on Instagram. ‘We’re not asking for any kind of sympathy. What’s happened is awful. I’m asking you to understand that the dog travelling from Russia is not the reason he died.’
