At the time of Consy’s passing, a devastated Malin wrote: “Completely in love with you.. and my Mum just wanted you to be with her. Your time wasn’t ready yet.

"Mummy loves you. I stayed with you each day.. you opened your eyes one last time for me and I saw those beautiful big brown eyes.”
And now the star has spoken exclusively to OK! Online about how she has coped with loss in the days and months following Consy’s tragic passing.
“I would say take each day as it comes and be patient with yourself,” the star advised, continuing: “Grief isn’t an overnight job it’s a long journey and it never disappears.

“You should firstly allow and accept your emotions and how you feel and be kind to yourself.”
Malin, who recently featured in Boux Avenue’s empowering curve campaign, then told us that journaling is one of her go-to coping mechanisms.
She said: “Journaling in bed and writing down how you feel is important on your journey so you can look back and when you do look back and get through it you’ll see how far you’ve come.”
Sharing further advice, Malin added: “I also think it’s important to keep your mental health as clear as possible and avoid alcohol. Socialising with positive people, eating well and exercising is helpful for mental health.
“If you keep your mind in check then everything else kind of follows and I think the grieving is just natural but I know for a fact that when I’ve got a clearer mind I’m doing better with my body and mental health, everything else fits into place.”
Malin recently joined Lovehoney’s Virtual Camp as a speaker, to discuss how to lead a sexually happy life, and later shared her beliefs that we should be “more open” when talking about sex.
She told us: “Sex should be encouraged to speak about because when I was younger sex education was nothing, it wasn’t a thing, it was like ‘put a condom on and that’ll be that.’

“Speaking about it and raising awareness makes it a much more comfortable thing to speak about.”
While talking about Love Island, being trolled, and life as a plus size mode, the star also revealed her advice on dating during a pandemic.
She said: “My advice would be getting to know yourself and being on your own. In all honesty, being alone is important and healthy and I think there’s no point in rushing and getting into a relationship just because.
"There’s no point in it! When you’re ready to meet someone you will, during lockdown or after lockdown.”
