Former barber Kem Cetinay, 24, is claiming for his “service activities” company Kemcet Ltd, despite having earned an estimated £1.5 million since winning the ITV2 dating show in 2017 with ex-girlfriend Amber Davies, 28.
Accounts filed last year showed the company had over £503,000 in its coffers.
Alex and Olivia’s spokesman said: “Alex and Olivia followed the advice of the government to put one member of staff who would otherwise have been let go from the company because of a reduction of workload due to the pandemic onto the furlough scheme so they were not without an income.
