It might come as a bit of surprise, but the show that will make you the most successful is The X Factor. Former contestants earn an average of £28,000 per Instagram post and have an estimated net worth of over £5million. Not too shabby at all...

There is one catch though, you do usually need to have top-notch vocals to do well on the show.

If singing isn't your thing then maybe Love Island is the route to go, especially as ITV are currently accepting applications for series eight. Going on the ITV2 dating show can earn you an average of 2.3million followers, which estimated earnings of £11,220 per Instagram post.
