Molly-Mae Hague has opened up about only having five friends, and says she's "not bothered" about having a social life.

Discussing her life and career success to date on the Diary Of A CEO podcast, Molly shared an insight into her achievements since leaving Love Island in 2019, including becoming Creative Director of Pretty Little Thing at age 22.

However, among talking about her career and life in the public eye, the influencer also revealed that her friendship circle is very small.

Asked by host Steven Bartlett whether she has a lot of friends, Molly responded, "No, I don't."

She continued, "Straight up no, no I don't. My circle is minuscule. I have literally about five people in my circle, and that includes friends. I have acquaintances and I have people in my life that 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."

The influencer went on to add that she's not hugely interested in socialising, explaining, "I'm not bothered about a social life. It's never been something that I've been interested in ... I don't really drink, I don't party, I don't go out. But that is just because I actually don't enjoy it. It's not for me. I'd rather just focus on making money, being successful and being happy."

Molly continued, "Friends, they come and go," admitting, "I find it a bit of a waste of time."

The ex-Love Island contestant also revealed that she lost touch with friends after leaving the show. She explained, "I've lost a lot of friends since coming off Love Island because I don't have the time. ... It sounds savage but sometimes friends, they just – not cling on, but they don't add much."

Molly went on to say that her friends can't "relate" to her life now. "I’m not that girl from Hitchin any more. I’m not that young girl that was a lifeguard at Hitchin swimming pool. That’s not me," she said.

"I’m living in a different world now and a lot of my friends can’t relate to that. And even though I'm still the same person, my life and my circumstances are just so different that you do just naturally ... people just fall off."

However, Molly said she's OK with her situation, adding, "I've never needed lots of friends," and calling herself "a bit of a loner".
