THEY became famous at Love Island Villa.
And these former contestants have managed to cash in on their reality TV success through lucrative fashion deals, lewd shots, and performances.

Meanwhile, her boxer boyfriend Tommy Fury, 23, close friend Maura Higgins, 31, and fellow 2019 contestant Amber Gill, 24, are in the top five, proving that Molly-Mae’s success has clearly been brushed aside.
