Love Island 2019 salary: How much are Love Island contestants paid to go on show?
Reality TV show Love Island returns to ITV2 next week when a group of new contestants will enter the villa. Love Island 2019 starts on Monday June 3 at 9pm and so far 12 contestants have been confirmed. A couple of celebrity names are among them, including boxer Tyson Fury’s little brother Tommy and Strictly star Curtis Pritchard. Ditching work to lounge about in a Mallorca villa with the hope of finding true love sounds like a nice way to spend a summer. But while many hope to earn celebrity status off the back of the show, they will still have bills to pay back home while in Mallorca.
How much are Love Island contestants paid?
The amount Love Island 2019 contestants get paid per week has emerged.
According to the Daily Star, the hit ITV2 show has increased the amount of money they give to the contestants who take part in the show, since last year
Contestants will reportedly earn £250 a week to “compensate” the time they have given up to be on the show.
Despite the increased sum from last year’s alleged £2.80 an hour, a source told the publication the figure still wasn’t enough.
The source said: “Everyone knows that stepping into that villa brings good and bad things.
“They risk coming out and being trolled on Twitter, their dreams of being a reality star dashed, work dries up and ending up feeling depressed and having issues.”
Express.co.uk has contacted a representative for Love Island for comment.
