Molly-Mae Hague under fire from advertising watchdog over ‘unfair’ £8k giveaway


MOLLY-MAE Hague has come under fire from an advertising watchdog over an ‘unfair’ £8k giveaway.

The former Love Island star, 21, has been pulled up for the competition she ran last September to celebrate getting 1million YouTube followers.

Molly was reported to the Advertising Standards Authority after she shared the post with her 5.1million followers which offered a £8,000 value prize.

The giveaway had included Apple products, Louis Vuitton luggage, tanning products, to celebrate her reaching a million YouTube subscribers in September 2020.

The decision against Molly-Mae was upheld after 12 people complained.

They believed that not all entrants were included in the final draw of her giveaway.

She got in trouble for the competition though

Twelve people complained to the ASA that it was not fair

The ASA have said this was not in line with the laws of chance and was not administered fairly.

The body said she should have used computer software to give out the prizes in a way that did not reward those with more visibility.

She wrote at the time: “THIS IS MY CRAZY GIVEAWAY!!!! The thought of one of you receiving all of these things makes me so happy, I can’t wait to see who wins!

“To ENTER my giveaway and be in with the chance of winning £8000 worth of gifts (NO SPONSORS ALL FROM ME!) then follow the steps below: like this post & tag a friend, subscribe to my YouTube, make sure you’re following @mollymaehague and @filterbymollymae, share this post to your story for a bonus entry.”

She had added: “You must complete all the above points for your chance to win. The more you tag the more chance you have of winning!”

Meanwhile Molly shared some rather intimate details about her relationship with Tommy Fury on social media this week.

She took part in a viral TikTok challenge which asks how comfortable you are around your partner.

She left them stunned that she shared some saucy insight into their sex life when she publicly admitted to showering with the boxer, sleeping naked beside him and revealed he’s licked “every crevasse on her body.”
