Molly-Mae Hague has said she's more interested in making money than new friends while reflecting on her social life in a new interview.

The 22-year-old was an influencer prior to appearing on Love Island in 2019 but has since gone to amass a huge Instagram following of more than six million and earlier this year was announced as fashion brand Pretty Little Thing's new creative director.

She explained to Steven Bartlett on his Diary of a CEO podcast that her mind is firmly focused on business and that she only has time for a handful of friends as well as boyfriend Tommy Fury.

"My circle is miniscule," she shared. "I have literally about five people in my circle and that includes friends.

"I have acquaintances and I have people in my life who I say are my friends but no. My circle is absolutely tiny and I like it that way, I wouldn't have it any other way.

"I work, I spend time with my boyfriend and I go to bed, that is literally my life and I'm not bothered about a social life. It's never been something that I've been interested in."

Hague added that she doesn't drink or party as she "doesn't enjoy it".

"I'd rather focus on making money, being successful and being happy," she went on.

Hague and professional boxer Fury, 22, met on Love Island, where they made it to the final as runners-up.

However, the social media star said her decision to go on the ITV2 programme wasn't motivated by the prospect of romance.

She told Bartlett that "no one" goes on it to find love as it's more for the "experience" and "a laugh".

The couple suffered a big blow earlier this year when the Manchester home they were living in was burgled while they were in London.

It was reported that around £800,000 worth of their belongings were stolen with Hague later describing it as "the worst thing that's ever happened to her".
