Megan is hoping to become a global name (Picture: ITV)

Most of the Love Island stars cash in on the countless teeth whitening ads, charcoal facemask #spon posts and fashion deals being flung their way.

But it seems Megan Barton-Hanson wants to go down a different path.

The 24-year-old has allegedly turned down £100,000 worth of sponsored Instagram posts to pursue a career as a global model.

With plenty of modelling experience in her arsenal, Megan is believed to be chasing worldwide fame – and is sacrificing easy money to do so.

A source told The Sun: Megan is keen to change her public image and wants to put her glamour girl reputation behind her for good.

Shes turned down over £100,000 of paid Instagram advertising in the last week alone and cancelled all her PAs because shes serious about making it as a model.

She knows shes too curvy for catwalk but wants to see whats out there. She has meetings with big agencies like Select this week.

This plan already seems to have been put into action, with Megan showing off a pared-back makeover as she appeared on the front cover of Grazia this week.

While the islander, who is dating fellow finalist Wes Nelson, may be shunning the standard post-villa route for high fashion, she is not ashamed of her past.

Megan did glamour modelling and stripping before Love Island, but rightly stands by her former career.

Speaking to Grazia about her time stripping, she said: I did it for a year – I got in, I got out, I earned my money, I didnt hurt anyone, I dont see why its so negative. Men enjoyed it, I enjoyed it, couples came in… everyone is happy!

And the same is to be said for that explicit video which was leaked to Pornhub.

Megan said: Im going to try and get it taken down. But I think once people have seen it, theyve seen it and weve all got a vibrator… (laughs) Let a girl live!
