Ekin-Su is said to have a net worth of roughly £1.6million - which is impressive, to say the least!

Love Island 2020 contestant Siannise Fudge is said to have earned upwards of £1million since appearing on the show two years ago.

It was reported during lockdown the same year that she and her now ex-boyfriend Luke Trotman, who she met on the dating show, earned around £40K on TikTok alone at the time!

She has since gone on to work with Kim Kardashian's shapewear brand SKIMS, and has apparently set her sights on the US, with the Bristol beauty hoping to work across the pond more.

Love Island 2021 winner Millie Court also makes the list as one of the highest earners from the dating series, with the fashionista reportedly earning around £1million in less than year - with a reported current net worth of around £2million!

Millie, who won the show with Liam Reardon was estimated to become a multi-millionaire after signing a lucrative deal with fashion giant ASOS after appearing on the show.

She is doing very well for herself!

Dani Dyer

Dani Dyer has had a slew of sponsorships since she danced her way into the public's hearts as she fell in love with Jack Finchman in season four of the dating show.

She's estimated to now be worth £5.8 million through her multiple deals and ventures such as partnerships with In The Style and Cadbury's.

She even starred in Nativity! The Musical with her father of Eastenders fame, Danny Dyer.

Wes Nelson

Wes, 25, previously revealed that he became a millionaire at the age of 21 thanks to his successful stints on Love Island, Dancing On Ice and Celebrity X Factor – he's a reality TV powerhouse! These days he's thought to have a net worth of £2.1 million.

He told this publication: "I was a millionaire by the age of 21. And that’s not being a show-off or anything, but it's wise investments and understanding this life doesn’t last forever."

"I have a passive income and generational wealth, so my children, whenever they come about, they’re not going to have to work again. I don’t have to work again."

Go Wes!

Olivia and Alex Bowen

Olivia and Alex captured everyone's hearts when they got together on the 2016 series, and their adorable relationship has gone from strength to strength, tying the knot in 2018 and updating fans on their love story online.

Together, they've made an estimated £4million through endless sponsorships, selling their wedding photos exclusively to magazines making them the richest couple to ever have come out of the ITV2 show.

Their joint net worth is roughly approaching the £5million milestone!

Amber Gill

Amber not only took the Love Island crown with her (very short-lived) other half, Greg O'Shea, but she left everyone's jaw on the floor when it emerged she had landed a £1 million deal with clothing line Miss Pap!

On top of that one million, the Geordie star is said to have banked another million due to various sponsorships and endorsements for brands including Maybelline, British Airways and Just Eat to name a few.

So, it's safe to say, Amber, at just 25, has absolutely smashed it and become one of the richest islanders of all time.

Megan Barton-Hanson

Megan Barton-Hanson scored a pretty impressive deal straight after the Majorcan villa exit!

The 27-year-old beauty had a lucrative sponsorship with none other than Pretty Little Thing as well as a long-standing partnership with lingerie retailer, Ann Summers.

On top of this, she also runs a very successful OnlyFans account where she is estimated to bring in approximately £800,000 a month!

Ex-Islander Megan recently bought a lavish pad in lockdown thanks to fruitful business ventures – she even has a hot tub and home gym!
