'Love Island' has created plenty of millionaires throughout the years, so which contestants have made the most money?
Love Island has launched the careers of endless contestants throughout the years and helped them go on to earn millions of pounds through a variety of endorsement deals, TV shows, wedding photos- you name it, these guys have been out there doing it!
So, which former islanders have gone on to earn the most money and how did they stack up the millions?
Let's find out!
Molly-Mae Hague is undoubtedly one of the most recognisable faces to come out of the Love Island villa – and it's made her net worth skyrocket!
The young entrepreneur was runner-up in season five of the hit dating show with boyfriend Tommy Fury.
Molly-Mae bagged a £500,000 PrettyLittleThing deal upon leaving the villa in 2019 after leaving everyone waiting in suspense to see which brand partnership she would go with!
In 2020, she's dropped her second collection with the brand and with 5.7 million followers on Instagram she can charge a premium for any post she uploads...
She has a rumoured net worth of £800,000 and Tommy has also amassed himself a hefty sum of around £300,00 from sponsorship deals, being a BooHoo representative.
Together, they've undoubtedly earned over a million pounds.
The couple recently moved from a luxury flat in Manchester to a more rural house together- which no doubt is totally luxurious too!
Love Island winner, Amber Davies, has accumulated quite the bundle of accomplishments since leaving the villa hand-in-hand with Kem Cetinay in 2017.
It's estimated that she's now worth nearly a whopping £2 million due to her brand deals with the likes of Motel Rocks, as well as an impressive array of roles on the West End.
She's estimated to now be worth £2.2million 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, 23, has recently revealed that he became a millionnaire 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!
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."
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 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 23, has absolutely smashed it and become one of the richest islanders of all time.
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!
She's estimated to be worth around £2million!
Love Island has accumulated quite the dynasty of successful ex-Islanders!
