Hoping to nab a spot on Love Island 2021? Whilst being a key worker could be a point in your favour, having a side hustle on OnlyFans may well count against you. According to reports ITV are blacklisting any reality stars who sell explicit content on the site—and it could be a ‘dealbreaker’ when casting new shows.
ITV blacklists OnlyFans users?
A source revealed:
ITV are now against talent with pay-per-view fans sites such as OnlyFans when looking at stars being involved in new shows. The decision isn't aligned to any one show in particular but across the board. It's thought that such explicit work isn't compatible with their audience.
Celebs on OnlyFans
The ban on OnlyFans stars won’t only affect new hopefuls as many established reality stars also have profiles selling explicit content on the subscription service. Several reality TV stalwarts have set up accounts on the site, including Kerry Katona, Lauren Goodger, Kieran Hayler and Danielle Lloyd.
Whilst OnlyFans is known for its sexy content, it’s up to each content creator to decide what they post. Some, like Kieran Hayler, share full-frontal nudity on the site. Meanwhile others, like Kerry Katona, only pose in their underwear, which Kerry says is no different to ‘standing there in a bikini.’
Of course, some celebs may well feel that OnlyFans is more lucrative than reality telly anyway. Last October, it was estimated that former Love Islander Megan Barton-Hanson, who charges fans £19 a month to view her content, could be raking in a whopping £807,559 a month as the highest ranking British celeb on the site.
