A new report has revealed how much the stars of ITV's reality show Love Island are being paid to post content on social media platform TikTok during lockdown.

Since lockdown has confined most of us to our homes, posting on the video-sharing platform has become more appealing than ever before.

Due to the app’s rapid growth over the last year, building up millions of active users, many influencers have made the shift over to TikTok, and Love Island contestants are no exception. 

Analysis by OnBuy has estimated how much Love Island TikTokers are earning per post. 

The number of followers, likes and engagement rate were analysed to determine roughly how much money each star has made between lockdown beginning on March 23 and June 1.

The top 20 earners are as follows: 

Luke Trotman (Luke T) was crowned the Love Island king of TikTok. While he has the most followers out of the contestants (1.1m), estimated figures revealed that he can make up to £878 from one single TikTok post. Since March 23, the report said he uploaded 26 Tiktoks, earning him a potential £22,851 since lockdown began.

Second on the list is series five winner Amber Gill, who earns £818.95 per post. Since March 23, she has created 20 different TikToks and reached the total estimated earning potential of £16,379 from the app alone.

In third is Luke T’s girlfriend, Siannise Fudge. She was a contestant on series six, and has raked in a sum of £702 per TikTok. 

With an estimated earning of up to £570 per TikTok, in fourth place is series two contestant Kady Mcdermot. The analysis highlighted that Kady has the potential to be the highest earner since lockdown began. This is partially due to her high earnings per post, but mainly due to the fact she has been the most active out of the list, posting 75 videos.
