From Beauty Works to Oh Polly, Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu has gone on to bag a series of lucrative deals since leaving the Love Island villa.
Ekin-Su found fame on the popular ITV2 show last summer, which she won with boyfriend Davide Sanclimenti.
Soon after exiting the villa, the Turkish actress landed a deal with Oh Polly for a reported seven-figure deal.
It’s believed the deal was the biggest any Love Island contestant has signed – even beating Molly-Mae Hague’s Pretty Little Thing signing.
Announcing the news at the time, Ekin-Su penned on social media: “This is the news I’ve been waiting to tell you all … I am beyond excited to announce that I am now the face of @ohpolly.
“I honestly can’t believe this is happening – it is a complete dream come true for me!"
Shortly after, Ekin-Su signed with cosmetics company BPerfect Cosmetics. Sources at the time said the star had bagged a six-figure deal with the brand.
The collection released by Ekin-Su was both cruelty free and vegan and she labelled the collaboration as “so right for me”.
Then came Ekin-Su’s Beauty Works edit – a brand which has previously worked with the likes of Molly-Mae, Zara McDermott and Millie Court.
Molly-Mae’s second deal with the company was said to be worth £1.4 million, with Ekin-Su’s ambassadorship thought to be for a similar figure.
Ekin-Su’s earnings haven’t just come from brand partnerships, as the 28 year old has also kept her TV ties and starred on two shows.
The first was a travelling programme with Davide, as the pair delved into their Italian and Turkish roots on a road trip.
Following the pair’s fiery romance in the villa, Love Island fans were eager to see more from them.
It’s unclear how much Ekin-Su and Davide were paid for the show, but it’s likely to have been in the thousands.
Most recently, Ekin-Su signed for Dancing On Ice – which aired its opening episode yesterday, Sunday 15 January.
She joins fellow celebs such as former TOWIE star Joey Essex, former EastEnders actress Patsy Palmer and Coronation Street star Mollie Gallagher in taking to the ice.
According to reports, Ekin-Su is being paid £100,000 for her feature on the programme.
“Bosses were desperate to sign Ekin-Su, so they paid her £100,000 to sign on the dotted line,” a source told The Sun at the time of her signing.
“As a comparison, Love Island stars would normally command something in the region of £30-50k for the show, so this is a huge deal for Ekin-Su."
With all this in mind, it's thought that the star has racked in figures ranging between £2million to £6million, PR expert Quincy Dash told Daily Star.
Despite her new endeavours, Ekin-Su’s said to have already been making good money before her Love Island stint from her acting career.
According to the Irish Mirror, the soap star raked in an eye-watering £16,000 per episode as she starred in a Turkish series called North Star.
