The Love Island 2017 contestants are already cashing in their fame, £4 at a time.

The current series of the hit ITV2 show is proving to be the most popular yet, with an all time high of 2.1 million viewers watching on Sunday night.


More than 2 million viewers also tuned in to last night's latest episode, giving ITV2 some of its best viewing figures in its 20 year history.

The Sun newspaper reports on how the latest batch of contestants are already being lined up for nightclub appearances, even those still in the villa.

Both Marcel and Chris have been booked to make PAs next month while recent evictee Dom is selling tickets for a meet and greet with a selfie for £4 at an upcoming appearance in Oldam.

Others are set to rake in a lot more cash for huge brand deals and modelling work, especially after their social followings exploded since the series began.

Jessica Shears now boasts almost a million followers on Instagram, and could be set to make £100,000 from her relatively brief stay in the villa.

A source told the Daily Star Sunday: “Jess is in big demand. She’s a very sexy girl and she’s a got a great personality, so she’s a dream for any company that wants a sexy ambassador.

“She has been approached to work with fashion brands, beauty products and hair products. There’s also interest for her to front some online adverts.”


Plus, the actual winners of the show stand to take home up to £50,000.

Love Island 2017 airs tonight at 9PM on ITV2.
