Prepare for the #spon con: first Love Island 2019 star hits 1m followers

Love Island cast Instagram followers

Plus the Love Island contestants who have gained the most followers since entering the villa

Get ready, your Instagram feed is about to be flooded with sponsored content (or spon con for short) as we have our first Love Island contestant with over 1 million followers.

The lucky Islander? It’s Tommy Fury of course, who actually started the show with the most followers, 120,000.

In week one Lucie Donlan was a close second to initial love interest Tommy with 104,000, she now has a whopping 898,000 followers just three weeks in. Fellow Islander Molly-Mae Hague isn’t far behind Lucie with 793,000 followers at the time of writing.

However, there are still three Islanders who have less than 100,000 followers – but this is likely because they are late entrants.

Curious about who has gained the most followers since being in the villa? So were we! While the likes of Tommy Fury and Curtis Pritchard were already semi-famous, those who have gained the most followers since being on the show started small.

Danny Williams, Sherif Lanre and Amy Hart are the top three Islanders who have gained the most followers since the show started on June 3, with Joe Garratt, Yewanda Biala and Michael Griffiths close behind.

Former Love Islanders have gone on to start clothing lines, write books, and of course use their new followers to pump out some lucrative sponsored content, we can’t wait to see what Tommy Fury does with his new-found fans on Instagram.
