She’s one half of Love Island’s biggest power couple and Olivia Bowen has revealed she’s now got the bank balance to prove it.

Opening up about how much her life has changed since appearing on the ITV2 reality show in 2016 alongside her now husband Alex, Olivia, 26, confessed she can now earn an eye watering £50,000 on a good month.

This is compared to taking home £1,500 a month when she worked as a sales executive prior to signing up for the show.

In a frank conversation on fellow Love Island alumni Ovie Soko’s new BBC Three TV show, Ovie: Life After Reality TV, Olivia and 29 year old ex-scaffolder Alex said their life was almost unrecognisable to before.

Olivia explained: “I could never have dreamt of being in this position – not ever – and Love Island gave that to us.”

She continued: “We then worked hard, we were nice people and we had a bit of luck on our side and not everyone gets that.”

Ovie continued to ask the couple how their earnings had been affected by their fame, Olivia answered honestly: “A good month for me back in the day would be about £1500. A good month for me… one month has been £50,000.”

As Ovie looked shocked, Olivia continued: “It’s a bit scary. It makes me feel a bit sick saying it out loud!”

It’s a huge difference to before she decided to go onto the high-profile dating show. At that time Olivia was living in a council flat and earning a basic wage.

Now she and hubby Alex are said to be worth a whopping £4.5 million, thanks to numerous lucrative deals, including TV shows and clothing lines.

But the couple don’t take anything for granted and Olivia and Alex say that they always count their lucky stars that they’ve been so fortunate.

Speaking in a previous interview, Olivia said: “We have definitely been lucky but there is no guarantee that you will strike it rich from going on Love Island.

"We know people who have gone back to their normal jobs after the show and nothing has changed for them.”

She added: “You have to be really savvy to achieve longevity. You have to work hard and make the right decisions.”
