NEWS… BUT NOT AS YOU KNOW IT
Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu is fully back into her fitness regime at her local gym, just days after winning this year’s Love Island with boyfriend Davide Sanclimenti, and she seems thrilled to be back at home.
The Turkish-English actress, drama queen and all-round icon of this year’s villa has been back on UK soil since Wednesday along with the other finalists and keeping herself very busy.
Not only has she been putting on a very loved-up display with Davide (of course) and being ‘dragged’ back the gym with her man, but she’s also taken part in the Love Island reunion show, which will air on Sunday evening.
She’s also clearly been too busy to partake in some previous work commitments, with ex-Islander Adam Collard being roped in to fill in for her.
However, the 27-year-old reality TV favourite is back at home in Essex, and spent time at her local gym in Chigwell on Saturday.
The star, who entered the villa as a bombshell weeks before taking the £50,000 prize with Italian stallion Davide, wore a blueish-lilac pair of leggings with a matching bra top for her sesh, complete with bright white trainers.
Makes a change from her many (many) bikini workouts while in the villa, eh?
The stunner looked thrilled to be back at her regular haunt, and also shared a video for her 2.4m Instagram followers.
Showing herself in the midst of a workout while in the weights section, a slightly sweaty looking Ekin-Su joked: ‘Of course I’m back at the gym!’
After spending weeks together, rowing, playfighting, throwing the words ‘you are a lier!’ about, and being absolute reality TV legends, Ekin-Su and Davide are spending their first bit of time apart since meeting earlier this summer.
It’s all good – no need to be alarmed, Ekinde fans: they’re just spending time with their respective friends and families, a mere 180ish miles apart.
Davide, 27, returned home to Manchester and on Friday had a proper lads’ night out with his pals in the city.
Sharing a sweet snap with his arm around his lovely lady, Davide wrote: ‘A couple of days with our families and I’ll see my Queen soon @ekinsuofficial.’
The couple won Love Island by a landslide with a victory of over 63% of the public vote, beating Gemma Owen and Luca Bish, Indiyah Polack and Dami Hope and Andrew Le Page and Tasha Ghouri.
However, it’s no surprise the fiery pair won the title, as fans of Ekin-Su are perhaps the most outspoken and passionate of the bunch.
From the moment she crawled across the terrace to steal a secret kiss with Jay Younger long before she and Davide became serious, to being completely unaware who Alfie Boe was when he serenaded them on their final date, she really has been one of the ITV2 programme’s biggest legends of all time.
We cannot wait for more of Ekin-Su in our lives.
Love Island’s reunion episode airs at 9pm on Sunday on ITV2.
