Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu Reportedly Had A Secret Fling With This Reality Star Before Love Island

Ekin-Su does seem to love a good covert romance!

After just over a week in the Love Island villa, Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu has already earned the title of bombshell of all bombshells.

Crawling across the deck floor for a secret rendezvous with Jay, giving Luca advice about Gemma, and bringing her perfect chaotic energy to everything she does. She’s our reality TV queen.

But it turns out Love Island might not have been her first experience with reality TV romance.

As according to The Sun, before becoming an Islander, Ekin-Su had a secret fling with TOWIE star James Lock.

A source close to the reported former couple told The Sun, “They met through friends and dated for a short time last year.”

“It was a very passionate fling while it lasted but fizzled out.”

James then went out with former Love Island star Megan Barton Hanson, with the source saying, “That was when James moved on to Megan.”

But it seems their relationship, if there was one, is history. With Ekin-Su setting her sights on the villa’s new lad Jay Younger.

They earned a place in our hearts (and pop culture history) after secretly meeting on the balcony, wanting to get to know each other away from the other Islanders.

Their hilariously adorable covert operation involved crawling across the floor so as not to be seen, ducking down beneath the balcony wall, and a secret signal for when to meet (which was so secret Jay didn’t even know about it).

But things ended badly when Davide, who Ekin-Su is coupled up with, found out. Resulting in one of the biggest fights this year.

Tonight’s show will feature a recoupling, where Ekin-Su will be choosing who she wants to couple up with, and one things for sure we are going to be glued to the screen.
