Molly-Mae Hague apologises for saying Italian food is ‘grim’

Molly-Mae Hague has been forced to apologise for causing offence after describing Italian food as ‘grim’ and ‘actually shocking’. 

The Love Island star had spent the past few days in Venice on holiday and gave her Instagram followers travel envy with stunning scenic photos. 

In one Instagram post, Molly-Mae said she had ‘fallen in love’ with the city but unfortunately the same couldn’t be said for the food. 

Not long after landing back in the UK, the 21-year-old wasted no time in heading to a restaurant to indulge in a hearty Sunday roast dinner. 

She then shared a photo of her holding up an ice cream in Italy and said: ‘I absolutely loved Venice but one thing I will say about Italy in general… The food is actually shocking. 

‘So controversial I know but I’ve been a lot of times now to different parts and I’ve tried a lot of different restaurants and I’m always so disappointed.’ 

‘It’s meant to be the home of pizza and pasta and I really can’t see how! Strange. Even this ice cream was grim,’ she added. 

A few hours later Molly-Mae addressed her earlier comments after clearly receiving backlash for her blanket statement about Italian cuisine. 

‘My DMs are going wild with this food Italy thing,’ she began the video in her Instagram stories. 

Molly continued: ‘Sorry if I offended anyone, it’s just my experience. Everyone’s like, “You only tried the touristy restaurants”, like no, I actually tried all different kinds like rural restaurants. 

‘I got recommended to go to these traditional Italian restaurants that are meant to serve the best pizza and pasta, and again, I just wasn’t impressed and it’s not me being ungrateful, I had the best time, it’s just my experience of the food.’ 

However, she added: ‘And a lot of you guys in my DMs seem to relate as well, which is very interesting.’ 

After returning from her brief getaway, Molly-Mae reunited with her boyfriend Tommy Fury and filmed themselves going for a late Sunday stroll.
