She told fans that her parents had been worried she could be bullied over the mark but added that ‘luckily’ she never was bullied.

What is a Strawberry birthmark?
A strawberry birthmark is made of blood vessels that form a raised red lump on the skin and appear soon after birth.
They are more common in girls, premature babies (born before 37 weeks), low birth weight babies, and multiple births, such as twins.
Usually the birthmarks shrink and disappear by the age of seven, however they often get bigger for the first 6 to 12 months of a child’s life.
Strawberry birthmarks may need treatment if they affect vision, breathing, or feeding.
Other common birthmarks include salmon patches or stork marks as well as port wine stains and cafe-au-lait spots.
Molly-Mae said: ‘I just wasn’t confident about it and as I got older, the colour kind of faded but birthmarks are cool. Own them, rock them. The only reason I got mine removed was because it was so in a prominent area, right on my head.’

She revealed she was inspired by The Saturday singer’s signature asymmetric cropped haircut when she was a 13-year-old.
