Love Island star Molly-Mae Hague has announced she has been diagnosed with endometriosis.

Molly-Mae who came second on the ITV show said the diagnosis came after “excruciating” periods.

The social media influencer who shot to fame on the 2019 series of the dating show is now set for surgery.

Molly-Mae remains in a relationship with heavyweight boxer Tommy Fury, brother of World champion Tyson.

The PrettyLittleThing ambassador spoke out about her diagnosis to her 5.7 million followers.

She said: "I actually have got to have an operation for something that I want to tell you guys about. It's kind of a good thing and it's kind of a bad thing.

"I've told you guys for so long now that I suffer with excruciating periods and so many of you guys were commenting on my videos telling me to check for endometriosis."

She continued: "Straight away they said 'You absolutely do have endometriosis, it's clear as day'. So I guess that's kind of a good thing because at least I know now what it is.

"It's not a good thing that I have endometriosis, because obviously it can affect fertility and loads of other things, and you can never really cure it."

Love Island will return to our screen on Monday for more sun, necking-on and poolside drama.

The hit ITV2 dating show will run for the usual eight-week period as producers revealed the 11 contestants entering the villa for the opening pisode next week.

Host Laura Whitmore will welcome the new arrivals on Monday night for eight weeks of drama from the villa, Casa Amore and the Hideaway.
