Laura Whitmore ‘earns £600k’ – and she’s only been on Love Island for 14 minutes this year

That means she’s earnt almost £750 per SECOND 😮😮


Love Island fans have worked out Laura Whitmore has appeared on Love Island for under 14 minutes so far this season – despite reportedly earning £600,000 as the show’s host.

So far she’s apparently been in the series for 13 minutes and 26 seconds, despite almost 27 hours of footage being broadcast.

When you work out how much this is, this means Laura Whitmore could earn almost £750 per *second* of her air time so far on the main Love Island show, £744.42 if you want to be exact about it. Hey Siri, play That Should Be Me.

So far there’s been almost a month of Love Island 2022 and a whole load of dumpings, but Laura’s been pretty much nowhere to be seen.

Obviously, she’s also the host of Love Island’s Sunday night spin-off Aftersun show, which she has hosted three episodes of so far this year.

The Sun reports that responding to criticism last year, Laura Whitmore said her husband, and voice of Love Island, Iain Stirling, doesn’t have questions about how much he’s paid and implied she may earn less than how much her salary is sometimes reported as being.

She said: “Firstly, Iain has never had attention on money he earns. Why don’t we like women earning money? I b****y wish I earned what was written in the press! I only get paid days I work.”

Love Island said the show’s host never appears in “every episode” of each series, saying it’s always a surprise when Laura will arrive in the villa.

It said: “As regular viewers of Love Island will know, the host has never appeared in every episode of the series. As always, Laura’s next arrival will be a surprise to the Islanders and viewers alike.”
