How much do the Love Island cast earn?

The stars of Love Island 2019 were paid 250 a week for appearing on the show.

There have been no firm details on what the amount is for this year’s Love Island cast, however. Although it is believed to have remained the same as last year.

The stars don’t get paid to star on the show- the amount they receive is paid by ITV to supplement their living costs back home.

The winners hope to win the 50,000 prize and contestants can hope to rake in more from building their profile after the show.
