Love Island’s Siannise Fudge and Luke Trotman have earned £39k on TikTok becoming the show’s highest earners in lockdown

SIANNISE Fudge and Luke Trotman are the highest earners from Love Island in lockdown - making £39,000 on TikTok alone.

The popular couple found a way to beat budget cuts by jumping on the money-spinning platform after Islanders lost a reported £500,000 in brand deal earnings due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Their Disney-inspired love story and cute dance routines on the ITV2 show made fans fall in love with them.

And the savvy stars realised early doors that TikTok users would lap up their fun content.

That, and sharing the videos on Instagram with their millions of followers has ensured they are top of the list when it comes to making cash from the comfort of their own homes.

According to online marketplace OnBuy the biggest Love Island earner in lockdown is Luke.

His 1.1 million followers has earned him an estimated £878.89 per post and total earnings of £22,851.14 since lockdown began.

His girlfriend actually comes in third place,  thanks to Love Island 2020 winner Amber Gill raking in £818.95 per post, totalling £16,379 so far.

But Bristonian Siannise can still cash in £702.30 per post and has a current estimated total of around £16,379.

Making fourth place is 2016 Islander Kady McDermott, who is the most active on the site with 75 videos.

Siannise and Luke T, who found love in the winter version of the show in South Africa, have even been able to move into a swanky new flat in South West London that boasts a huge balcony.

Finn Tapp and Paige Turley won the first ever winter season of the reality programme on February 23, but they are further down the list making approximately £200 per video.

The 2020 stars aren't rolling in dosh as PA opportunities and brand deals have dropped since lockdown.

"The Winter Love Island stars are set to lose huge amounts of money, some contestants up to £500,000," claimed Jack Cooper, a PR expert at EdHopkinsPR.

"Brand deals at the moment are at an all-time low, many companies are not able to afford the usual Love Island prices for sponsorship deals.

"They are also missing out on club appearances due to them being closed, which could have earned them up to £5,000 per hour," he added to Metro.

"With no events to attend, they are also missing out on a huge range of exposure in the media, having no stories for the press to write about."

"Many of the participants have approached us to represent them during this tough time. Due to our books being full and also the lack of opportunities in the industry at this time, we have had to decline them," Jack added.

However, he also said that those couples that are still together could benefit later down the line if they remain an item.

"People are interested in keeping up to date with what they are doing, especially if they are isolating together," he said.

"Being in a couple brings up their financial worth, and in some circumstances could secure them a deal of up to £10,000."

Meanwhile, stars of the summer 2019 series such as Maura Higgins and Amber Gill were predicted to make £1 million each by the end of 2019.

Maura joined Dancing on Ice and been the face of lingerie brand Ann Summers.

While Amber bagged a lucrative deal with online clothing brand, Miss Pap.
