Caroline Flack is reportedly in line for a bumper pay day after Love Island bosses revealed the show would start to air twice a year from 2020.

According to new reports, the presenter is set to scoop a whopping £3.6 million after signing up to host the show for the next three years.

Caroline has now tripled her salary, according to The Mirror, which claims that she will take home a massive £1.2m a year for working on the popular ITV2 reality show.

With the final set to air on Monday (July 29), Caroline is said to be seen as "part of the furniture" by ITV bosses.

After the success of this summer's series, currently the most watched programme for adults aged 16-34 across any channel, bosses revealed that the extra series will be filmed in a luxury villa in South Africa.

They are likely hoping it will be as big a success as the latest series, which has seen a record six million viewers tune in to watch the antics of the villa inhabitants.

Ent Daily has contacted the star's reps and Love Island for a comment.
