Love Island champ Amber Gill comes in third

In third place is 2019 winner Amber Gill, who is now worth around £2m.

Initially not a favourite with fans, Amber managed to work her way up to the top and win the prize money.

Soon after winning she bagged a £1m deal with Miss Pap.

Who else is on the richest Love Island contestant list?

In fourth place is Megan Barton-Hanson, who proved to be one of the show’s most controversial figures.

Since leaving she became a sponsor for Pretty Little Things, and bagged herself two million Instagram followers to match her £2m fortune.

She’s also an ambassador for lingerie shop Ann Summers and runs a successful Only Fans account.

In fifth place is Amber Davies.

Since leaving the villa in 2017, Amber has gone on to amass a fortune of around £1.7m.

She decided to pursue her passion for acting, and ended up scoring a role in West End musical 9 to 5.

Amber also partnered with Motel Rocks, who paid her a whopping £500,000 in return.

Next up, Kem Cetinay and Jesy Nelson’s ex Chris Hughes share the sixth spot. They may not be a couple, but they certainly are a double act.

They were best pals on the show, and have been inseparable ever since.

The pair are both worth around £1.4m.

While Kem bagged a role on Dancing On Ice, Chris scored partnerships with TopShop and Carphone Warehouse.
