Better get saving if you want them at your party
Love Island might be over for another year (sob), but it’s just the beginning for the cast of 2019. Since leaving the villa, the stars of the series have been inundated with offers, from brand collaborations to new jobs on the telly.
But they’re not just making their money from #sponcon – they’re also reportedly charging some eye-watering fees to appear at events. The Sun contacted the stars for an appearance quote for a 21st birthday party, and the prices are steep. Think four figures minimum.
So which Islanders will cost you the most if you want on of the villa’s most recent residents to watch you blow out your candles?
Dancer Curtis Pritchard is reportedly charging £10,000 for a two hour appearance, and he also requests that the car and hotel are covered, too. A drop-in from Tommy Fury costs the same, and if you want to see Michael Griffiths’ face at an event it’ll set you back £2,500 for one hour or £3,500 for two.
Sherif Lanre, who was removed from the villa pretty early on, charges £5,000 for an appearance.
If you want Yewande Biala at your birthday party, it’ll cost you £5,000 plus a 20% agency fee, Lucie Donlan will turn up for £3,000 for one hour and time with Chris Taylor fetches £5,000.
Maura Higgins is currently all booked up so sadly she won’t be there to wish you a happy birthday, and Amber Gill and Greg O’Shea are yet to get back with prices.
George Rains, however, will attend for £900 and pay for his own fuel.
So if you’re looking for a bargain birthday celeb, he’s your guy.
