Love Island 2019: How much contestants are paid ‘REVEALED’ as start date for fifth series is finally announced

A new bunch of sexy singletons will arrive at the Love Island villa in a quest to find love when the fifth series starts on 3 June.

As well as looking to find love, the Islanders — hoping to follow in the footsteps of last year’s winner Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham — will also be building their bank balances.

Following their time in the villa, the stars of the show become celebrities in their own right, pocketing money from endorsement deals the second they step off the flight.

But what some viewers of the Caroline Flack fronted show might not realise is the participants are also paid during their time in the villa.

And this year’s contestants have a great deal, being paid more than the likes of Megan Barton Hanson and Wes Nelson, who appeared on the show last year.

According to the Daily Star , to “compensate” for giving up their time to appear on the ITV2 programme, the cast will be paid £250 a week.

Last year’s contestants received £200 per week, meaning that this year’s eye candy could be up to £400 better off than last year’s contestants at the end of the show’s run.

The fee helps cover rent and bills the Islanders run up at home while they’re soaking up the sun in Spain.

ITV2 officially confirmed the show’s return in a promo featuring host Caroline on Monday, alongside the hashtag “Day Dot Is Coming."

The gorgeous presenter is seen laying on a pink lilo as she tilts her sunglasses down the for the new teaser, as the show confirmed its start date.

It comes after the show released teasers for the upcoming fifth series with a string of cryptic advertisements which took over London.

A number of billboards containing picture representations of classic quotes from the show have been plastered on streets and the underground in recent weeks.
