  • Love Island's Finley Tapp and Paige Turley won the winter series of Love Island.
  • The pair said they'd be using the prize money as a deposit on their first place together.

Finley Tapp and Paige Turley were crowned the winners of the first-ever winter series of Love Island on Sunday. As well as bagging the £50,000 prize money, they're also set to make a helluva lot more cash after leaving the South African villa.

A lot of the contestants will already have management sorted before even getting back to the UK, and some will already no doubt have lucrative deals in place - from nightclub PAs to sponsored social posts.

Speaking about how much the winners could rake in, celebrity PR and publicist Harry Rutter said: "Like everything, it’s all in the timing. Paige and Finn need to be on it straight away and could set themselves up for life! They’re in a great position after winning the show and could demand fees around £30,000 just for doing a post on Instagram."

He added to Metro.co.uk: "Islanders can earn more than £200,000 per month just on sponsored Instagram posts. If partying is their thing ex-islanders can expect around £2,000 just for attending a nightclub PA. If Paige and Finn worked together they could easily demand £5,000."

Together, he reckons the pair could earn around £3.5-4 million this year alone.

Right, where do we sign up for the next series of Love Island?
