Love Island's Molly-Mae Hague has apologised after criticising Italian food while on a trip to Italy. The 2019 Islander recently visited Venice and kept fans updated with lots of stunning scenic pics on her Instagram Stories.

Alongside one picture of the Venice scenery, Molly-Mae said she's still "not over" the pretty Venice views. However, it sounds like she was less taken by the Italian cuisine.

Sharing the controversial review with her followers, Molly 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," she wrote.

She also said she didn't like the ice cream she was holding in the picture shared to her Instagram stories, adding: "Even this ice cream was grim."

However, after being criticised by some fans for her comments, she returned to Instagram to issue an apology. "My DMs have been going wild with this Italy food thing. Sorry if I offended anyone," she said in an Instagram Story clip.

"It is just my experience. Everyone's like 'you only tried the touristy restaurants'. No, I actually tried all different kinds. I tried rural restaurants and all different kinds."

The influencer added, "It's not me being ungrateful - I had the best time. It's just my experience with the food."

And signing off, she mentioned that "a lot of you guys in my DMs seem to relate as well, which is very interesting."
