A Romford woman on reality TV series Love Island is the most profitable contestant on Instagram, new research suggests.

Social media analytics tool HypeAuditor has identified the top 10 most profitable 2021 Love Islanders, and found Millie Court could already charge brands in the region of £7,300 per Instagram post. 

Millie has an estimated reach of up 250k Instagram views per post already, according to the analysis, and has the potential to earn the most income from the platform.

The research suggested her success may stem from brands including ASOS showing their support for the contestant.

Days before the finale of the hit series, Millie and partner Liam Reardon are polling at second most likely to win the show, according to analysis by SEMrush.com and Compare.bet.

Chief executive and co-founder at HypeAuditor, Alexander Frolov, said: “Over the last six years, since Love Island first aired in the UK, viewers have witnessed a number of Islanders shoot to fame, racking up millions of social media followers.

Alexander added: "As the final of this year’s show is approaching, and despite the fact it generated almost 25,000 Ofcom complaints over a recent episode, our analysis shows that Love Island remains a highly powerful marketing platform for brands and influencers.”
