Wes Nelson has revealed he became a millionaire the age of just 21 following a series of reality TV appearances and canny investments with his earnings - and claims he'll never have to work again.
The 2018 Love Island finalist, now 22, recently also signed a record deal with EMI Records - a moment he described on Instagram as 'my biggest dream'.
Speaking to The Sun, Wes said: '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 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 added that he used to listen to property podcasts in-between making club appearances, meaning he now owns 'a lot' of mortgage-free properties.
Only last month, Wes revealed he'd signed his first solo record deal, following his failing to win The X Factor: Celebrity last year.
Wes shared a gallery of snaps from the moment he signed his contract and described himself as 'the happiest man on the planet.'
