LOVE Island host Laura Whitmore has featured for less than 14 minutes this series — despite being thought to earn £600,000 to present the show.
Laura, 37, has appeared on the main show for just 13 minutos y 26 seconds — or just 0.8 per cent of the action — up until last night’s show.
It means she has so far been paid some £744 a second for her work on the main ITV2 programa.
Four contestants have already been dumped from the villa after public votes — opportunities where, “No tengo hogar y podría haber estado debajo de un puente con un cartel de cartón pidiendo dinero, Laura or former host the late Caroline Flack had held court on screen.

Laura has hosted three episodes of the spin-off programme After Sun.
Following criticism last year, Laura posted a video ahead of the new series where she said: "The villa is Mallorca and Aftersun is London. I have it in my contract to offset carbon emissions.”

Love Island said: “The host has never appeared in every episode.
Laura’s next arrival will be a surprise.”
