Former Love Island star supports Ekin-Su turning the villa 'upside down' amid Davide row

A former Love Island contestant has made it clear she supports Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu amid backlash after kissing newbie Jay Younger despite being coupled up with Davide Sanclimenti.

AJ Bunker appeared on the 2021 series of the hit dating show and has said she wishes she had done things differently when she was in the Spanish villa.

The star lasted just five days in the villa but says if she were to go back in she'd do things differently and maybe a bit more like Ekin-Su.

She told The Sun : "I'm here for Ekin-Su. All day long. I love how she is turning the villa upside down. She sees what she wants and goes for it. Now she's got her man Davide, and has even got Jacques and Jay in the wings just in case.

"When you're a bombshell, you only have a short amount of time, so you have got to really get in there and stir things up. I am a very girlie girl and cared about hurting people's feelings so I held back a bit. If I knew what I know now, I wouldn't have done that so much."

AJ has now swapped her Love Island days for MMA fighting as she prepares to compete in Celebrity MMA on June 24.

Ekin-Su has ruffled some feathers in the villa and it looks like there's even more drama in store as she upsets Davide when he finds out what really has been going on with Jay.

Viewers have seen Ekin-Su and Jay sneaking around going for secret kisses and chats with Davide completely unaware of the situation.

Jay entered just days ago and instantly connected with Ekin-Su with her liking him just as much back after saying Davide wasn't giving her any attention.

Thursday's episode showed Davide kicking off after finding out about the secret kisses and Ekin-Su trying to defend herself.

However, fans are divided as to what to think with some feeling sorry for Davide and others supporting Ekin-Su's actions.

Defending Davide, one viewer tweeted: "Ekin-Su didn’t need to kiss the guy on the second night… that’s bad mind. She should’ve just told Davide and keep it pushing."

As another wrote: "Team Davide. Ekin-Su is so manipulative," a third added: "Mate, Ekin-Su has handled this so badly. Thinking her sneaking off and crawling around isn’t being noticed every everyone else in the villa. Then blowing up at Davide to deflect it all from her. Nahhhh poor moves."

However, some have been on Ekin-Su's side as one wrote: "Davide is just tryna have Ekin-Su as a safety net and keep it that way and I'm glad she ain't having it LMAO! God bless whoever casted that chic! She's bringing all the drama and I'm here for it #LoveIsland"

As a second person tweeted: "I am team Ekin-su sorry. Davide should’ve cared from the start all of a sudden he cares pls!"

Another said: "Sorry when all is said and done I’m still team ekin-su that’s my sister and she didn’t lie either."
