Love Island star Wes Nelson has said he was a millionaire by the age of 21 thanks to ‘wise investments’.

The TV star turned 22 on March 18, 2020.

Wes told The Sun: ‘I was a millionaire by the age of 21. And that’s not being a show off or anything, but it’s wise investments and understanding this life doesn’t last forever.

‘I’ve been lucky to have so many shows under my belt, and I’m super grateful for that.

‘I have a passive income and generational wealth, so my children, whenever they come about, they’re not going to have to work again. I don’t have to work again.’

Wes shot to fame after appearing on the fourth series of Love Island in 2018.

The star recently landed a record deal with EMI, so that bank balance is probably going to grow.

‘I can’t see any reality television for the foreseeable,’ Wes also told the publication.

‘I’ve turned down a lot of big shows and this isn’t about money for me, it’s about myself, my well-being, my passion [music].’

Previously announcing his record deal on Instagram, Wes said: ‘I am the happiest man on the planet! I have just signed my first record deal with @universalmusicgroup @emirecords.

‘Anyone who knows me knows this is my biggest dream and I’m so f**king proud! I’d like to thank my managers @rzk_rnr and @so.empire + the Label for giving me the opportunity.’

Good for him.

As well as Love Island, Wes has appeared on shows like Dancing On Ice and X Factor: Celebrity.
