Love Islander admits ITV stars are paid hidden fee for each week of dating show

Love Island star Priya Gopaldas has revealed what the Islanders get paid for being in the ITV villa.

During an exclusive chat with the Daily Star, Priya opened up about her time on the show after starring in it last year.

Talking about the show's leaving process, Priya explained: “We stayed in another villa for about a week and during that week, we would then get our phones back and we’d get the debrief, a social media debrief.

"We got some training for social media and managing your bank account, things like that, then we appeared on the live Aftersun show.”

“It was probably quite useful actually because I’ve actually had no training, I only knew how to take out student finance, but apart from that, I had no idea how to manage money or anything like that. So, it was useful.”

While on the topic of money, we asked about the fee the Islanders were paid in her series, and she revealed that it was higher than the previous series.

Priya said: "Yeah I can't quite remember the amount but I think it was probably £200-£250 maybe a week.

"I didn't realise, it was in the contract you signed but I didn't even think about getting paid after the show.

"I was surprised when I got it and I felt like I didn't really deserve to be paid for spending a summer in a villa so I ended up donating that money to the NHS as obviously it was during Covid so it was important that I gave back to them"

Since leaving the villa, Priya has teamed up with alternative meat brand Quorn and is running the Royal Parks Half Marathon later this year.

Quorn is the marathon’s “official sustainable protein partner” and they want to help support nutrition on the race day, which will be held on Sunday 9th October.

Priya discussed her partnership with Quorn and said that she is “really excited” to be an ambassador for the brand.

She said: “It’s supporting the race’s ambition to become the greenest race in the UK. Also, with Quorn and as I’m a vegetarian runner, it’s so important to me to have tasty, sustainable protein in my diet.”
