Molly-Mae Hague Reveals Unseen Photos Of Strawberry Birthmark

She said: "I actually was born with a very very large strawberry birthmark. Essentially it looked like this," she then held up her pink beauty blender.

"It was bright red, it was super large, it stuck out of my head quite far. It's quite shocking, I didn't realise."

'Strawberry marks', or haemangiomas, are blood vessels that take the form of a raised red lump on the skin's surface. Most are harmless, and they usually shrink or disappear by the age of seven according to the NHS.

When Molly-Mae was around 12 or 13 years old she decided to remove the birthmark as her parents feared she would be bullied at school.

"I just wasn't confident about it and as I got older, the colour kind of faded but birthmarks are cool," she added.

The former islander then encouraged her followers to embrace their own birthmarks. She added: "Own them, rock them. The only reason I got mine removed was because it was so in a prominent area right on my head."

Molly-Mae revealed in November that one of her moles was cancerous. In an emotional video she she admitted she burst out crying as soon as she heard the news, and told her family immediately.

She also captured the moment a doctor told her that her mole was 'a malignant melanoma', breaking the news while she was on a trip to Venice.

She first played out the phone call from the doctors, who also told her she'd need further surgery, before documenting her reaction to the news.

"The main message of this vlog that you need to understand is to get your moles checked," she said. "I cannot stress this enough. Use your initiative and be smart. If I hadn't, I could have been in serious trouble."

She warned: "Don't ever think it'll be someone else's story. You know when you see things on Instagram or on the news where you think, 'That's just someone else's story it could never happen to me'. Guess what, it happened to me."
