Yes, that's right, they get paid!

Is this news to you?

Each year, a new bunch of singletons leave their day job to enter the Love Island villa.

Which, we guess, is kind of a risk.?

But the contestants do get paid for their time on their show, though we imagine it wouldn't go too far if you're trying to cover rent, bills, etc.

In 2018 contestants were reportedly paid €235 a week, but that changed the next year as the show got more popular.

This year, the cast of 2021 are expected to get €295 a week.

Now, they do also have the small thing of the chance to win the 50k prize at the end.

And a lot of the biggest personalities tend to scoop major influencing deals after.

So, maybe it's not too big a risk?

Not if you're looking at one of season five's contestants, Molly-Mae Hague.

She coupled up with Tommy Fury and the two have been together since.
