Molly-Mae Hague famously signed a £500,000 deal with PrettyLittleThing after she left the Love Island villa, and she has since said that many of the brands she works with now are those who supported her before she went on the show.
As she worked as an influencer prior to her debut on the reality show, the beauty had built up her own connections, and in the years that followed she has remained very picky about who she choses to work with.
To give her a helping hand, Molly-Mae has her manager Fran to support her, and in a tell-all YouTube video Molly-Mae and Fran teamed up to spill all about the business side of her career.
Fran spilled some industry secrets about how she and Molly-Mae work together, including the news that the YouTube star turned down a £2million deal last year.
Speaking in the YouTube video, Fran said: "Molly tells me her goals, like, 'I want to buy a house, I want to take my family away', it's my job to make those goals happen.
"She also tells me the goals of the brands she wants to work with, so I say okay, I will make it happen."
Explaining that it's Molly-Mae who has the final say on the deals, Fran added: "A high street fashion brand came along last year, offered me £2million, which is a lot of money, and 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?' and she said no. I said, 'Why? You told me you want to buy that house', and she said, 'No I don't buy my clothes from there'.
"I said to her, 'Well you can start!'"
Molly was laughing as she recalled her manager telling her that she can start shopping at the high street brand, as Fran added: "Another thing that is incredible about Molly is that if you ever see 'ad' on any of her posts you know that she genuinely loves, uses and wears that brand."
As the 22-year-old agreed, she recalled that when she accepted her PLT deal, it wasn't necessarily the highest offer in the room, but it was the one they chose to commit to.
Within the video, Molly also revealed that she has been working on her biggest project ever which is set to be released in the coming weeks – and fans are already asking questions.
Since leaving the villa, Molly-Mae has continued to work with brands but she has also put her all into building her own while keeping a strong focus on her YouTube channel.
Molly-Mae became the most followed Love Island star since her exit with a whopping 5.8million Instagram fans and 1.5million YouTube subscribers.
