The TV personality frequently uses her Instagram to promote body positivity and female empowerment, as well as sharing how she has taken control of her life following an incredibly tough time.
Malin has recently spoken out about the physical abuse she endured at the hands of her ex-boyfriend Tom Kemp.
She is convinced that the abuse contributed towards the tragic death of her one-month-old daughter Consy, who was born seven weeks premature in December 2018.

The former Love Islander revealed that Tom, 29, ‘slapped and punched’ her while she was six months pregnant, which she believes impacted her child’s health.
Malin had to undergo an emergency cesarean as her daughter suffered from an irregular heartbeat and reduced movement.
Consy was treated in intensive care at London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital but sadly passed away at just four weeks old in January 2019.
Speaking about the abuse, Malin told The Sun: ‘When Tom threw me about, I’d tense my stomach so much, I could feel her pausing inside me. The doctors didn’t understand what happened to her, but I know in my heart.
‘The emotional abuse was always worse. It would be: “Urgh, you’re so fat… oh no, you’re beautiful, I’m joking”. He’d call me a “s**g, a fat b****h’ and a ‘w***e” and he’d spit at me and spray deodorant at me.’
Malin wrestles with PTSD after the abusive relationship left her mental health and self-esteem in tatters.
She said that while Kemp has shown no remorse, she envisions herself forgiving him when she meditates, adding that she feels sorry for him and hopes that he gets help.
Tom was jailed by a Aylesbury Crown Court judge for 10 months in September after he admitted to assaulting Malin.
