Defiant: Tommy Fury said he ‘regrets nothing’ which has happened since he finished second on Love Island
Speaking about how his relationship was called into question after leaving the villa, Tommy said he has proven all skeptics wrong by still being with Molly-Mae.
He said: “Everyone doubted us and said we were wrong. All the while, we laughed and said, “We’ll show them,” and we did it because we’re still together and getting stronger.
Sharing his thoughts on why he thinks they are still going strong after the villa, Tommy said they share similar interests.
He also praised the fact that they don’t “get upset” which has come in handy when they live together 24/7 in Mallorca.
Tragic: The couple received numerous negative comments after the death of their dog, Mr. Chai, just a week after bringing him home over the summer
Tommy also spoke about the recent fury over the death of his dog, Mr. Chai. The star had bought the puppy for Molly-Mae’s birthday in May.
However, Mr Chai sadly passed away just a week after being brought home by the couple, causing many on social media to wonder what happened.
While admitting that harsh comments can “hurt every now and then,” Tommy said he doesn’t regret the choices he made.
He said: “I have no regrets. What is meant to be is meant to be. All we’ve done since leaving the show is do it all with good intentions.
Take in his stride: Tommy added that he’s not too bothered by trolls online, but Molly-Mae is a bit more sensitive to what she reads
“No matter what you do for a living, people will always have an opinion. You could be a martyr and someone will always think badly of you.
Tommy added that he’s not too bothered with online trolls, but Molly-Mae is a bit more sensitive to what she reads.
He said his partner “felt it a bit more”, adding that it was “his job” to help her when she was upset or bothered by what people are saying in the comments.
Molly-Mae was devastated when Mr. Chai passed away less than a week after her handsome Tommy gave her the cute dog.
An autopsy revealed that Mr. Chai’s skull was not fully developed and had left part of his brain exposed.

Tommy purchased the dog through the Cheshire-based Tiffany Chihuahuas & Pomeranians business, which is licensed by the Cheshire Council but not by a Kennel Club insured breeder.
The dog’s death sparked backlash from followers, forcing the couple to pause from the public eye for a few days.
Addressing her sudden death at the time, Molly-Mae said: “While we fully understand everyone’s opinion about being shipped from Russia, what you need to understand is that that’s not what made him die.
“He was going to die anyway. Autopsy results showed her skull was not fully developed and part of her brain was exposed. He didn’t have a single white blood cell in his body.
“If we had had time again, we would have had a UK dog or UK rescue dog.
A representative for Molly-Mae and Tommy confirmed that Mr. Chai died “of a seizure and neurological problems”.
A statement read: “Chai died of an epileptic seizure and neurological problems. This is probably related to the puppy’s skull not being fully formed (see note on anterior fontanel below).
“Chai died with a number of health issues described below and the puppy was clearly not in full health and had potentially carried an infection and was fighting it for some time before reaching Molly and Tommy. . “
He then listed a number of ailments the dog suffered from, including: “no white blood cells in the blood, anterior fontanel not fully ossified, body condition 3/5, congested liver, congested enlarged spleen, enlarged adrenal glands, kidneys congested, congested colon, congested lungs, and right ventricle of the heart dilated.
Molly-Mae and Tommy met and started a romance on the 2019 Love Island series. They then finished second, behind Amber Gill and Greg O’Shea.
