Molly Mae hits back at wedding rumours after cryptic snap appears to show Tommy Fury wearing a ring
Her fans went into a frenzy earlier this week when a snap with her boyfriend Tommy Fury appeared to show they'd got engaged.
And Molly Mae Hague took to Instagram on Saturday to hit back rumours her beau, 22, had proposed during a candid Q&A with her followers.
The Love Island star, 22, said: 'Do you really think we'll announce to you that we're engaged by a sneaky picture of Tommy wearing a ring?'
Molly had asked her followers to ask her questions while she procrastinated from her weekend tasks.
And when one fan responded asking about 'sneaky engagements', the reality star took the opportunity to lay rumours to rest.
Molly-Mae said: 'This really makes me laugh because I did see a few of you commenting on Tommy's last picture saying "he's wearing a ring".
'Like, do you guys really think we'll announce to you that we're engaged by a sneaky picture of Tommy wearing a ring?
'Like...no,' Molly added before pulling an exasperated face.
The couple have been dating ever since they first met on Love Island in 2019 and moved in together shortly after dating.
Back in April, Tommy told his 3.3 million followers that he was going to put a ring on his girlfriend Molly-Mae's finger 'sooner than you think'.
When asked by a follower: 'When are you going to put a ring on Molly-Mae?'
The reality star responded: 'Sooner than you think', while winking at the camera.
On the subject of children another fan asked: 'When you gonna have some little Fury's?'
Tommy went onto reveal he 'would like to have them sooner rather than later' and suggested asking Molly, 21, that question.
'Im not the person to ask that question too. I would like them sooner rather than later but maybe you should go and ask that to the Mrs.'
During the Q and A, Molly-Maealso revealed to her fans that she 'smiled less' after removing her composite bonds because she felt less confident with her new teeth.
She then gave her followers a first look at how her scar from having a mole on her leg removed was healing.
Flashing the scar to the camera, she said: 'Excuse my hairy legs but this is my scar from where I had my mole removed,
'It doesn't bother me. I never really even notice it but it has kind of now spread out a bit as its healed more. It's kind of got a bit bigger but it doesn't bother me at all and I'm just so lucky that I got my mole removed.'
In November last year, Molly-Mae was given the devastating diagnosis that a mole of her leg was a malignant melanoma - a type of skin cancer.
The influencer filmed herself being given the diagnosis for her YouTube channel.
In the video, Molly candidly talked about what she's been going through following her 'shock' diagnosis, telling her fans: 'I was walking around with skin cancer on my leg.'
Molly-Mae revealed that she learned her mole was a malignant melanoma during a work trip to Italy, when a doctor phoned her to deliver the diagnosis following a recent biopsy.
The social media star initially got the mole on her leg checked out by two dermatologists but was told it was nothing to worry about.
Molly-Mae eventually sought third professional opinion during a routine check-up because she 'felt something wasn't quite right'.
Speaking on her YouTube video, after the phone call from her doctor played out, she told fans: 'I got the call today and he's told me it is malignant melanoma - which is skin cancer basically.
'It's obviously petrifying, shocking and scary. I don't even know what to think or say. I cannot believe I was told by others doctors it was OK. I am so upset and angry.
'I just briefly asked this doctor when I was walking out. I was walking around with skin cancer on my leg!
MELANOMA IS THE MOST DANGEROUS FORM OF SKIN CANCER
Melanoma is the most dangerous form of skin cancer. It happens after the DNA in skin cells is damaged (typically due to harmful UV rays) and then not repaired so it triggers mutations that can form malignant tumors.
Around 15,900 new cases occur every year in the UK, with 2,285 Britons dying from the disease in 2016, according to Cancer Research UK statistics.
- Sun exposure: UV and UVB rays from the sun and tanning beds are harmful to the skin
- Moles: The more moles you have, the greater the risk for getting melanoma
- Skin type: Fairer skin has a higher risk for getting melanoma
- Hair color: Red heads are more at risk than others
- Personal history: If you've had melanoma once, then you are more likely to get it again
- Family history: If previous relatives have been diagnosed, then that increases your risk
- Removal of the melanoma:
This can be done by removing the entire section of the tumor or by the surgeon removing the skin layer by layer. When a surgeon removes it layer by layer, this helps them figure out exactly where the cancer stops so they don't have to remove more skin than is necessary.
- Skin grafting:
The patient can decide to use a skin graft if the surgery has left behind discoloration or an indent.
- Immunotherapy, radiation treatment or chemotherapy:
This is needed if the cancer reaches stage III or IV. That means that the cancerous cells have spread to the lymph nodes or other organs in the body.
- Use sunscreen and do not burn
- Avoid tanning outside and in beds
- Apply sunscreen 30 minutes before going outside
- Keep newborns out of the sun
- Examine your skin every month
- See your physician every year for a skin exam

'If I hadn't have asked, I'd still have that mole on my leg now and I'd be none the wiser. It could be spreading through my body, you just never know.'
Molly-Mae continued, explaining how she was trying to be strong, despite breaking down, so that her loved ones didn't freak out.
She said: 'I've already shed tears about it. I've already cried down the phone to every family member.'
Molly-Mae concluded the video by urging her fans to have their moles checked out.
