Love Island’s Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu Actually Has A Strong Connection To Ireland

Wait, wait, wait, Ekin-Su was Miss Ireland?

Love Island has introduced plenty of bombshells this season, but none like Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu.

Since her entrance to the villa she has impressed fans, providing plenty of drama and hilarious moments. But her life outside the villa seems just as exciting.

She was already plenty used to the screen as she had starred in not one but two Turkish soap operas, got her degree in performing arts, and back in the day was even a pageant queen…when she represented Ireland.

That’s right…somehow Ekin-Su managed to be Miss Ireland and it just never came up!

Ekin-Su represented us, as Miss Ireland during the 2011 Miss Asia Pacific World pageant when she was just 18.

Competing under the name Susie Hayzel Culculoglu, for the competition her hometown was listed as Dublin.

She was born in London and grew up between England and Istanbul, but there must have been a brief stop over in the capital at some point, or else she could have some Irish heritage.

Considering what great craic she is in villa, it’s pretty easy to believe she’s Irish.

But we might just get a little bit more insight into Ekin-Su’s Irish connection.

While Dubliner Dami has been in the villa since the very start, it seems like they never chatted about her time as Miss Ireland.

But another Irish lad has entered the villa, and might get a chance to quiz her about it. As Jack Keating, the son of singer Ronan Keating, joined the show last night as a part of the Casa Amor shake up.

So let’s hope Ekin-Su finally spills all the details.
