PREGNANT Molly-Mae Hague has been slammed for taking daily baths.
The Love Island star, 23, who is pregnant with her first child with boyfriend Tommy Fury, said she enjoys soaking in a bubble bath after a long day to unwind.
But her fans were quick to point out that daily baths are not environmentally friendly and at a time when household bills are soaring, relaxing in the tub is fast becoming an expensive habit.
While other followers suggested hot baths could put her at risk of overheating, dehydration and fainting.
“I’ve been having a bath like every single night because I’m obsessed with baths, I love them so much, it’s my favourite part of my day,” Molly-Mae told fans on her latest YouTube vlog.
“I had to make the adult decision to stop putting so many lotions and potions and oils and bubble bath into the bath because without giving too much information, it’s been no good for me in that region and it’s been really bad recently.”
The star shared a clip of her running a bath at her £3.5m home as she enjoyed some R’n’R time.
However, it’s advisable to avoid a hot bath as you’re likely to feel warmer than normal during pregnancy, according to the NHS.
This is caused by hormonal changes and an increase in blood supply to the skin.
These hormonal changes can also make pregnant women feel faint.

One concerned fan commented: “Baths are actually bad when pregnant… higher risk for bladder infections.”
Another viewer slammed Molly and wrote: “It’s nice you can afford to have a bath me and millions more can’t due to energy prices.”
Water bills have jumped by up to £36 a year.
The cost of running a bath will depend on several factors including your water and energy supplier, the temperature of the bath water and how deep you run it.
But data from The Bathroom Showroom reveals that on average, running a large bath (300 litres) will cost households £2.80 per day.
For those running a bath on a daily basis, that means spending £86.76 a month, or an eye-watering £1,012.57 per year.
It comes after Molly revealed that she has been experiencing pregnancy insomnia.
The YouTuber told her followers that she in unable to get to sleep and keeps waking up in the early hours of the morning.
Sharing a photo of her living room while it was pitch black outside, Molly wrote: “04.12 my pregnancy insomnia.”

Molly took to her Instagram Stories this week to upload a picture of her bed in her stunning £3.5million Molly Maison mansion, with the caption: “Joined the under the weather club since my baby shower, hence the quietness.”
She then posted an image of hands held together and added the words: “Me and my bed.”
At the weekend, the mum to be was seen looking glowing in a brown bodycon dress as she celebrated with her loved ones.
Boxer Tommy even made a surprise arrival to present Molly with an £8,000 push-present.
