Ekin-Su Wants To Distance Herself From Love Island

Ekin-Su has revealed she wants to distance herself from Love Island, following her 2022 win with boyfriend Davide.

After winning the 8th series of the popular dating show, the Turkish actress secured deals with Perfect Cosmetics and Oh Polly as well as competing on the latest season of Dancing on Ice.

She also starred in her own tv show alongside boyfriend Davide – entitled Ekin-Su and Davide: Homecomings.

Only seven months since winning the hit reality show Ekin-Su has announced her plans to distance herself from the show and the fame that comes with it.

In an interview with Women’s health Ekin-Su said on the matter: “They always say: ‘There’s a new Love Island, there’s this, there’s that, you’ll be forgotten. But that doesn’t bother me because of who I am. I know what I’m going to do in life. And I know my dream”.

She continued saying: “Acting in films, playing roles and quirky characters, something that would make you think: ‘Oh, Ekin is not this,’ but then I smash it. That’s when I start looking for an acting agency, putting myself out, you know, try to distance myself as much as I can from the Love Island scene and, yeah, be my own person”.

Ekin-Su and Davide only had seven months to relish in being the winners of the 8th series of Love Island before a new couple, Kai and Sanam were announced winners of the 2023 winter series, after the final aired last week.

A whole new group of contestants will take to the villa for the 10th series of the dating show later this summer for more dating drama.
