Molly-Mae Hague has revealed she once turned down a whopping £2million to work with a high street fashion brand because she didn’t buy her clothes from there.
The 22 year old, who recently stepped out alone after shutting down rumours she’s split from Tommy Fury, took to her YouTube channel to share a video of herself and manager Francesca Britton answering questions from her legion of fans.
“Do you ever get frustrated when Molly doesn’t want to take a certain job?” one person asked her manager.
Before answering, Molly stepped in to explain what that might mean as she said: “So that means for example if a brand emailed in, offered this collaboration or offered this deal – let’s do Instagram posts or work with them really closely…

“Fran would then come to me and say, ‘Molly, I’ve had this come in. I think this would be really great for you,’ because she’d only ever put it forward if she did think that… And I say no, what’s your reaction?”
Molly’s manager Fran looked up and pursed her lips before replying: “Well, let me just take a step back there before just for people to understand.
“When we make our goals and plans for the future, we do it in two ways. We do your personal goals, so Molly will and say to me, ‘Right Fran, I want to buy a new car, I want a house on this road, I want to be able to take my family on holiday…’ she tells me her personal goals.
“So my job is to make sure she achieves that. Then the second thing is, she tells me the goals of the brands she wants to work with. So I go, ‘Okay, so she wants to work with all these brands and I will make it happen.”
She then decided to provide an example of a time where a high street fashion brand offered her an incredible deal, but Molly flat out refused to work with them.
“A high street fashion brand came along last year, offered me £2million, which is a lot of money, a hell of a lot of money,” she explained.

Fran, whose client Molly recently detailed her lifestyle change, continued: “They said to me, ‘We’re obsessed with Molly-Mae, we’d love her to be the face of our brand, we want her to work with us.’
“I thought, ‘Brilliant!’ and then I said to her, ‘How do you feel about that?’ She said, ‘No’. I said, ‘Why? You told me you want that house.’
“She said, ‘No, I don’t buy my clothes from there. I said to her, ‘Well you can start! You can start buying clothes from there now.'”
Fans were quick to comment on the admission as one person wrote: “The fact that she refused 2M pounds from a brand says a lot about her character”.
Another said: “now i’m just wondering which brand offered 2mil and molly said no, lol. love her integrity”.
While a third added: “wow molly turning down 2 million, i have so much respect. myself and so many others can easily say they would have promoted any clothing brand for that amount of money. she deserves everything”.
