Love Island stars’ hourly wages set to skyrocket as they leave villa

Love Island 2022 is almost at an end and to mark the final week in the villa, the contestants all went on romantic final dates.

With romance in the air, many viewers were left in tears after fan favourites Davide and Ekin-Su declared their love for each other while being serenaded by vocalist Alfie Boe.

Elsewhere, Paige and Adam made vows to each other for life outside the villa showing how strong their romance is after such a short time together.

While those remaining in the villa look as though they’ve found love, many will be leaving with more than just a plus one as their earnings are set to skyrocket . We take a look at the impact the time in the villa is set to have on this year’s stars based on their social media following with marketing agency Honcho.
