Love Island seems like the perfect opportunity to find love if you’re young, single, and filled to the brim with confidence.

However, while you’re off work and having a summer to remember in the house, the real world still goes on at home – and real bills and responsibilities need to be paid for!

Luckily for the romance-hunting contestants, they needn’t worry about that – as it’s now been confirmed that the show bosses give them a nice financial boost for being on the show!

Despite recent reports claiming otherwise, official sources have confirmed to now that the Islanders do receive payment for going on the show, as a contribution towards their living costs.

An official spokesperson for ITV and Love Island told Now:

‘We do make a contribution towards living their costs while they are on the show.

‘I understand it’s weekly – don’t think we’d disclose the amount.’

More: Love Island’s Marcel Somerville shows his bum – and viewers CANNOT get enough 

Happily for us, and other Love Island obsessives, there were others who were willing to spill the beans on the amount – enter 2016 contestant Malin Andersson.

The make-up pro and social media star was outspoken during her time on the Island, and even had an unforgettable return after being dumped from the show, in order to confront former love interest Terry Walsh (CLASSIC viewing – seriously).

And she exclusively revealed to Now on Thursday how much the 2016 were given during their time on the Island:

‘It was like £200 a week.’

With that adding up to around £1800 for approximately two months, we don’t think that’s a bad deal at all!

While it won’t have the contestants rolling around in furs Kanye West-style any time soon, it’s a nice bit of cash for laying in the sun (and in bed) with hotties all around you.

If that weren’t enough of an incentive to start your application process for next year’s show, we don’t know what is…

Bare-faced beauty! Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson STUNS with new make-up free pictures

She got the Power – with or without make-up

The Little Mix gals are masters of transformation, giving us new looks to ogle over nearly every week – hair, clothes, make-up, the lot! 

Jesy Nelson in particular is great at showing the world a variety of super-glam and we’re BIG fans.

However, the singer is just as much of a stunner when she’s rocking a more stripped back look – and courtesy of some unseen new photos, the public know it for sure, as Jesy’s seen rocking a fresh-faced and fabulous look.

Read: All the Latest Celebrity News 

In celebration of her 26th birthday on Wednesday (14th June), a dedicated Little Mix fan account posted pictures of Jesy modelling for hair company Easilocks.

With her hair a more natural, auburn colour, she’s seen looking straight into the camera – and her face is free from (noticeable makeup):

It’s much more of a casual appearance than usual for the glam star – and we think she looks pretty darn fetching!

More: Burn, Chris Clark! Jesy Nelson unleashes all the sass as shares sexy dancing video aimed at her ex 

Jesy has gone through her fair share of styles when it comes to her personal image – in recent weeks, she’s rocked copper-coloured hair, a blonde ‘do and now her current pink look, which has proven a real winner with her fans.

😉💕

A post shared by @jesynelson on

First seen when the girls performed at the Capital FM Summertime Ball last week, Jesy’s mermaid-pink look received all the praise from fans:

‘Perfect!’ and ‘Candy queen!’ red two examples – and we can’t help but agree. No-one rocks an out-there look like you do, Jes!

Stacey Solomon sings Let It Go with Frozen’s Idina Menzel – and it REALLY divides Loose Women viewers

Cute or cringe? Loose Women fans can’t decide

Stacey Solomon and Idina Menzel
‘Loose Women’ TV show, London, UK – 15 Jun 2017

No matter how old you get, there are always some Disney movies that take you from fully-grown adult to excited seven-year-old by its mere mention. And Stacey Solomon is a perfect example – as she could barely contain her excitement when she got the opportunity to sing with Frozen star, Idina Menzel, live on TV!

However, it’s proven to be quite a divisive topic for fans: while some loved the fangirl moment, others did NOT hold back on their criticisms…

Read: All the Latest Celebrity News 

Musical theatre star Idina featured on Thursday’s edition of Loose Women. As a fellow singer, you’d imagine that Stacey would be pretty darn excited – but she took it to a whole new level, by dressing up as Idina’s animated character from the film, Elsa, blue dress and all!

Someone’s DEFINITELY a Frozen fan! (Photo by Ken McKay/ITV/REX/Shutterstock)

After serenading the actress with a few lines, former X Factor contestant Stacey returned to the panel for a quick chat – before she fulfilled her dream (and that of thousands of fans all over the world) by singing the iconic tune with her.

Soon after the show, Stacey reflected on her big moment on Twitter: ‘I can’t believe I got to sing with such a legend! I’m so lucky! Haven’t stopped smiling! I love my job…’

Aww! Plenty of viewers were blown away by Stacey’s strong vocals, and loved how happy she was in the moment.

‘N’awww never seen Stacey like this before she’s so sweet the little duet too!’ wrote one fan.

But for some, the clear adoration in Stacey’s eyes was too much – and some merely described her duet of the modern classic as ‘cringe’.

‘Why Stacey? Why?!?!? Cringe,’ reads the Tweet of one confused viewer.

If you ask us, we think it was a pretty awesome moment – she sounded great, especially under the pressure of performing with her idol!

And, really, wouldn’t we ALL be as excited as Stacey in that situation?

Alex Mytton shares very rude pic of ex Binky Felstead as she welcomes first baby

Alex Mytton congratulates his ex Binky Felstead on giving birth to her first child in a very inappropriate way…

Binky Felstead at In The Style Summer Press Day, London 18 May 2017

It can be awkward when your ex has a baby with their new partner when still have the same circle of friends but Made In Chelsea’s (MIC) Alex Mytton found his own way of making light of the situation…

He took to Instagram on Thursday (15.06.17) to congratulate his ex Binky Felstead and her boyfriend Josh ‘JP’ Patterson on the birth of their daughter in pretty cheeky fashion.

Read all the latest celeb news

Alex uploaded a rather rude photo of Binks using an eyeliner pencil to doodle a PENIS on his cheek and the word ‘c**k’ on his forehead as he lay sleeping – eep!

Alex captioned the snap: ‘Mahhooooooosive congrats to this new baby mama @binkyfelstead !!!! Maybe when the baby sleeps don’t try this yeh…Haha 👶🏼😂

Binky Felstead, Alex Mytton

JP announced his girlfriend had given birth on Monday (12.06.17) when he uploaded a cute selfie of him cradling their newborn daughter.

Meanwhile, Binky and Alex dated both on and off on the E4 show between 2012 and 2014 but split after she admitted she felt Alex ‘crazy and insecure’ after he cheated on her multiple times over the course of their their two-year relationship.

At the time she said: ‘You just drive yourself crazy, and I knew it had to end. I loved him but I love me more.’

But fans remain divided over his latest method of saying “congratulations”.

One Binky supporter commented: ‘You were such a huge c*** bucket to the girl I’m surprised she’s even talking to you… lol (sic).’

Whilst an Alex fan gushed: ‘How can u possibly still look fit when you have cock written on your forehead @alexmytton (sic).’

The pair bonded over drama surrounding his ex and former MIC co-star Nicola Hughes and Binky admitted last year that she was forced to get on with him as the pair share the same birthday, she added: ‘We’re friends. I don’t have any feelings for him any more. Luckily.’

Let’s hope Binky isn’t planning on asking Alex to babysit any time soon…
