At the time, Ekin’s 1.2 million followers gave her the highest potential OnlyFans earnings at an eye-watering £812,108 per month.
However having gained a further 700,000 Instagram followers since then, Ekin’s potential earnings are predicted to be even more now.
The other contestanant with links to Preston did not so fare well in Reboot’s statistics.
Footballer Jamie Allen, who was born in the city, placed 35 out of 37, with his 17,310 followers earning him potentially £11,465 a month on OnlyFans.
Meanwhile in second place is Chester based dressage rider Gemma Owen, who could earn up to £719,899 monthly on the subscription website.
Completing the top 5 is Love Island returnee Adam Collard (£666,560 per month), followed by Gemma’s ex, rugby player Jacques O'Neill (£656,987), and Paige Thorne (£569,091) who was coupled up with both Adam and Jacques during the show.
To create their rankings, Love Island statistics converted each contestant's Instagram follower count to potential OnlyFans earnings, using a conversion tool from Cam Model agency.
This provides a monthly estimated earnings figure based on 8% of an individual's Instagram followers subscribing to their OnlyFans.
Love Island statistics then assigned a value of $9.99 to each potential OnlyFans membership, a figure sourced from a Business Insider interview with one of the platform's top earners.
