The PrettyLittleThing creative director had been absent from social media since a clip of her talking about privilege and success on the Diary Of A Ceo podcast went viral.

Since the backlash, Molly has lost over 40,000 followers, but she still has a whopping 6.2 million fans on the platform.

The comments made by the Love Island alumna have been branded as 'tone deaf' by fans as they believe the star failed to recognise her own privilege.

When speaking to Steven Bartlett on the podcast, Molly stated: "I just think like, you're given one life and it's down to you what you do with it. You can literally go in any direction."

The controversy has been a hot topic online ever since, with fans and critics alike talking about the importance of privilege and background and how that affects the opportunities available to different walks of life.

Fans were instantly divided by Hague's return in the comments, with many fans referencing quotes from the podcast with their replies.

Whereas another fan came to her defence and commented: "Our girl is back."
