Love Island favourite Molly-Mae Hague has candidly opened up on her struggles with body confidence.
She and partner Tommy Fury welcomed their little bundle Bambi earlier this year, having met and fallen for each other on the aforementioned dating show in 2019, but while on holiday in Barbados, the 24 year old has suggested she may never strap on another bikini.
In her latest YouTube vlog, the star told viewers from a sun-lounger: "I've got this swimming costume on… for me at the minute swimsuits are the one. I'm not a bikini girl at the minute because I just don't have the confidence.
"I didn't really have the confidence for bikinis before I had a baby."
Molly-Mae went on to add: "Right now with my body, I need anything that is going to give me confidence… Because I genuinely feel like with time, my confidence with my body is actually getting worse. It's irritating me.
"I really felt on this trip that I am going to embrace it, I don't care, my new mum body, I'm proud of it, and I am but at the same time I'm finding it hard to accept that I've got a real journey to start if I want to feel more confident in my body.
"I was speaking about it to my family," she revealed. "I just don't ever picture myself putting on a bikini ever again, I never did [feel confident] in the first place. There's just no way.
"Before I had a baby I didn't feel confident in a bikini, so after having a baby I don't picture myself ever thinking, 'I'll slip a bikini on and feel amazing'. I want to and I want to come on here and say 'I feel confident and amazing' but that's not how I'm feeling at the minute.
"So any clothes or outfits that can make me feel a little more confident, covered up and super flattering right now, that is what I'm going for."
In other news, professional boxer Tommy, 24, made his Loose Men debut on ITV last month in honour of Mental Health Awareness Week, sitting next to Vernon Kay, Martin Kemp and The Chase's Paul Sinha.
During his stint on the panel, he was quizzed on his plans to pop the question to Molly-Mae.
"My actual plan was to [propose] a lot sooner but obviously being a boxer, when you're in a training camp, you've got to completely shut yourself off and focus on the fight. So I can't be going here, there and everywhere proposing. I'm going to do it soon guys, I really am but it just takes a bit of time," he promised.
"I'm 100% ready for marriage but as I said, it's just finding the time."
Closing out the show, Tommy later gave Martin and Vernon a quick boxing training session as quizmaster Paul cheered them on as commentator.
