Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen are quids in the four years since being crowned runners up of Love Island – earning millions since finding fame on the reality romance show.

Tattooed beauty Olivia, 26, and 28-year-old muscled hunk Alex lost out on the top prize of the second season of the show to Cara De La Hoyde and Nathan Massey.

But the pair have found fame, fortune, and enduring love since coupling up on the hit ITV show – which would have been due to be back on air with a seventh series this week.

And it seems all the pleasures associated with taking part on the show – including a £4.5 million fortune – have come to the pair by chance more than anything else.

Opening up to The Sun on Sunday, Olivia explained: “I didn’t go on Love Island for love, I didn’t go in for money, I just went in for a laugh.

“My friends say I’ve become a nicer person because of Love Island.

“Now we’ve moved into our dream home, we go on amazing holidays and it’s thanks to Love Island.”

He revealed: “I was living with my mum with no chance of moving out. I had payday loans.

“It is amazing how much my life has changed.”
