Not bad work if you can get it, eh?
Love Island 2018 might be about to hit our screens (4 June – mark it in your diaries, people) but it turns out that last year’s stars are still making MEGA bucks thanks to Instagram.
The cast of the 2017 series continue to make the most of their TV fame by sharing lucrative sponsored posts with their followers and now the earnings of the ten most followed stars have been revealed.
And trust us, it so impressive it’ll make you want to become a last-minute signing for Love Island STAT.
Kem Cetinay is the biggest hitter and can apparently bag up to £8,600 for ONE post to his two million fans. Not bad, eh?
Meanwhile Kem’s BFF Chris Hughes – the second most followed 2017 islander after Kem – can potentially get around £8,170 per sponsored ad.
Amber Davies might have won the show with former love Kem but she doesn’t quite rake in the same amount, though according to the stats from OddsMonkey she can still earn up to £6,880 for each post.
In fact the ladies from the series have got some serious earning potential, with Olivia Attwood, Camilla Thurlow and Montana Brown apparently able to get £6,450, £5,590 and £5,160 per social media promotion respectively.
Both Jessica Shears and Sam Gowland have promoted the same brand but Jess is able to earn more due to having 100,000 more followers than Sam.
Jess can earn £4,730 for a post whilst Sam – who now stars in Geordie Shore – potentially gets £4,300.
And whilst Gabby Allen and Marcel Somerville recently split after Marcel admitted to cheating on her, Gabby will probably be pleased to hear that she still earns more from her sponsored posts than her ex.
Gabby can rake in around £4,300 per ad, whilst Marcel’s earnings come in at £4,063.50, having apparently taken a knock from losing followers over the break-up.
So let this be a lesson to the Love Island class of 2018 – avoid cheating scandals and your Instagram earning potential won’t dip!
