Molly-Mae Hague was the real winner of Love Island when she signed a £500,000 deal for her own Pretty Little Thing range. But the partnership has reportedly left the rest of the Islanders "furious" as it means they can't work with the brand. The deal means the other girls can't work with the fast fashion brand in any capacity — they can't even do sponsored social media posts. And while Anna Vakili, Maura Higgins, Amy Hart, Francesca Allen and Joanna Chimonides supported Molly-Mae at her launch party this week, they're said to be secretly fuming about what it means for them. A source told The Sun: "All the Love Island girls have been blocked from doing any work with Pretty Little Thing because of Molly-Mae's big money deal with the clothing brand. "They all went along to the launch party on Sunday night to support her, but have been told they can't sign deals with PLT or do any social posts. They're furious." Mirror Online has contacted Pretty Little Thing for comment. … [Read more...] about Love Island girls ‘furious’ as they’re banned from working with Pretty Little Thing over Molly-Mae’s deal

"The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench. A long plastic hallway where pimps and thieves run free and good men die like dogs. There is also a negative side." I don't want you to think that I make a habit of this, but last weekend, in the name of research, I spent an indulgent afternoon with the curtains drawn, sifting through a pile of old Sleeper photographs, press cuttings and band mementoes.

I hadn't looked through any of these pictures and interviews since I moved house three years ago, and it was with some trepidation that I heaved the box on to the floor, split open the seal with a Stanley knife and tipped out its contents. There it was in black and white. … [Read more...] about My life as a pop star
