LOVE Island’s Molly-Mae Hague has been forced to shut down her Filter fake tan business amid coronavirus fears.
Earlier this week, Prime Minister Boris Johnson called for all non-essential business to close down as the deadly disease battles the UK.
Taking to the business’ Instagram page, 20-year-old Molly shared a promotional photo for the brand as she wrote: “Due to the recent provisions outlined by the government relating to COVID-19, Filter by Molly-Mae has made the decision to close our online store and fulfilment centre with immediate effect.
“Our main priority is to protect the safety for both our team and our valued customers. This is a decision that has not been made lightly and we want to thank everybody for your support so far.
”This is not a goodbye this is just a see you soon.
”Stay safe and stay at home. Love Molly-Mae x”.

All non-essential businesses have had to temporarily close
It has been a difficult year for the reality TV star, with her beloved cat was hit by TWO separate cars earlier this month.
Thankfully the pet was able to pull through after being rushed to the vet, with Molly dubbing him her “miracle boy” as she shared a snap of the cat with his leg in a bright red cast.
Molly found fame on Love Island in 2019, and went on to come second with boyfriend Tommy Fury, also from Manchester.

The pair are still going strong, eight months after leaving the villa, and are the only remaining couple from the 2019 season still together after Curtis Pritchard and Maura Higgins recently confirmed their split.
Coronavirus was officially declared a global pandemic earlier this month, and has so far claimed the lives of 422 people in the UK.
Earlier this week, the PM put the country on lockdown – urging people not to leave their homes unless it is for one of four “essential” reasons.
