“Love Island” Winners Ekin-Su and Davide Have Split
It’s a sad day for “Love Island” fans, as Davide Sanclimenti has confirmed that he and Ekin-Su Cülcüloglu have split. Taking to Instagram on 29 June, the Boohoo ambassador revealed that their relationship has come to an end 11 months after winning the dating series.
“@ekinsuofficial & I are no longer together,” his statement began on his Instagram story. “I am grateful for the memories and opportunities we shared together and I wish her nothing but the best,” he said. “I would like for everybody to respect this decision during this difficult time, I will continue to support Ekin in anyway possible.”

Ekin-Su has not yet released a statement of her own regarding their relationship status, but she did post a doting red carpet carousel on her own Instagram account just two days ago with her former flame at the “Indiana Jones And The Dial Of Destiny” launch, writing: “Indiana Jones 🤠 premier with my man”. Representatives of Ekin-Su did not immediately respond to POPSUGAR’s request for comment.
The pair seemingly had a tumultuous relationship in the villa, but were nonetheless crowned the winners of “Love Island” 2022. Then, in August 2022, Ekin-Su revealed the couple had plans to move in together that September.
Speaking to POPSUGAR about their relationship in October 2022, Ekin-Su revealed: “It’s the little things, like when I’m asleep, he tucks me in bed or just makes sure I have my paracetamol there for me,” she said. “It’s so sweet of him. And I wish people could see more of that but I’m the one living it, and a relationship should be private I think.” The pair also appeared in their own ITV series, “Ekin-Su and Davide: Homecomings”, where they both visited their home countries of Italy and Turkey, as well as meeting each other’s families.
While we had high hopes for the couples and were hoping they might follow the likes of Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury in successful “Love Island” relationships, but it was not meant to be. Somehow, we think both Davide and Ekin-Su will continue to thrive now they’re single, and we are sending them all the best.
