ITV Love Island's Davide Sanclimenti issues statement as he confirms split from Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu

Love Island's Davide Sanclimenti has announced he has split from Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu.

The two were crowned winners on the popular ITV dating programme last year. The two endured a dramatic stint in the Majorcan villa but their rollercoaster relationship was a hit with fans.

They defeated Gemma Owen and Luca Bish to triumph as the season eight victors. Davide and Ekin-Su seemed to be enjoying life after the villa together and attended the Indiana Jones premiere earlier this week.

However, Davide has issued a statement as he confirmed they have now broken up. He said: "Ekin Su and I are no longer together. I am grateful for the memories and opportunities we shared together and I wish her nothing but the best.

"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 yet to announce the news as she travelled to Turkey for a family reunion. She shared a snap from Bodrum and said: "Finally reunited with my mum and auntie."
