How did Wes Nelson become a millionaire?

Before appearing on Love Island, Wes already had a pretty impressive job as a nuclear systems design engineer, where he was said to have made roughly £35,000 per year.

He then allegedly went on to rake in £300,000 just from a personal appearance tour across UK clubs after his stint in the villa, in 2018.

Wes has since bagged an endorsement deal with BoohooMAN and gone on to appear in a number of TV shows including Dance on Ice, Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Win and Celebrity Antiques Roadshow.

Most recently, Wes has been invested in his extremely successful music career, which was kickstarted when he competed in X Factor: Celebrity alongside other former Islanders Samira Mighty, Zara McDermott and Eyal Booker.

In 2020, Wes went on to sign a record deal with EMI records and has released three bops since, including his hit 'See Nobody’ with rapper Hardy Caprio.

Wes explained how grateful he is for the position he’s in, telling this tabloid that he’s also made some ‘wise investments’.

“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,” he added.
