Tommy Fury has opened up on how he hasn’t been able to be a ‘cuddly dad or fiancé’ to his daughter Bambi and Molly-Mae Hague.

The former Love Island star took to the ring on Saturday (14 October) and went head-to-head against YouTuber KSI in a match that fans have long been waiting for.

The pair went for six rounds without a knockout, meaning that their boxing match went to points instead.

Tommy, 24, had been busy training for the last 10 weeks, meaning that he was away from Molly-Mae, 24, and Bambi, eight months, for almost three months.

The pair met on Love Island in 2019 and welcomed their first child together earlier this year.

And in July, Tommy then got down on one knee to Molly-Mae in a heartfelt proposal in Ibiza.

On Tuesday (17 October), he appeared on Good Morning Britain after his victory where he spoke about how training impacts him being a dad and fiancé.

He chatted with hosts Susanna Reid and Richard Madeley about the result and all the time he spent away from his loved ones.

During training, he was only able to see his future wife and daughter once a week for the last 10 weeks. He moved out of the family’s mansion in Cheshire and ‘all the comforts of home life’.

Speaking about his decision to upend his lifestyle in preparation for the fight, Tommy said: "I removed myself from home and all the comforts of home life. I've been seeing Molly and the baby once a week for the past 10 weeks.”

He gave a very understandable reason for leaving the family home, too.

He explained: “It's been so tough but at the end of the day I can't switch from being a super dad and a cuddly dad and fiancé, giving kisses and cuddles out, to then two hours later going to train and wanting to rip someone's head off.

"It's very difficult to get yourself out of those different headspaces so I thought I'd remove myself so I could solely concentrate on the fight and the task in hand. It was needed so that was why I moved out."

Tommy said he likes to keep his family life and his job separate and said it wouldn’t be fair to come home with a fight on his mind.

Describing the situation as being ‘tough’, the TV personality said: “I don't like to balance home life, family life and my job.

"I keep them both completely separate because at the end of the day nothing comes before my family and home life, but it wouldn't be fair to come in through the door with just the fight on my mind, and that's all you need when you're in training camp."

Molly-Mae supported her man by wearing a personalised item of jewellery to the fight.

Sharing a photo alongside her husband-to-be post-fight, Molly-Mae penned to her Instagram story: "No one is prouder of you than me."
