Love Island's Davide applauds Ekin-Su's pointed Instagram message after split rumours

The drama from Love Island never ends, as 2022 winners Davide Sanclimenti and Ekin-Su Culculoglu have been surrounded by split rumours since leaving the villa. The reality TV stars have been spending time apart while working abroad.

Now Ekin-Su has taken to her Instagram to post a pointed message. Posting a selfie, where she looks very glam, Ekin-Su described what being successful meant to her. She said: "To me being successful means being a kind, genuine, good hearted, open minded person."

This message comes after weeks of split rumours with Davide and it also follows fans' concerns that Ekin-Su and Davide had distanced themselves from the other Love Island stars of 2022 who have been photographed on nights out without the winners.

However, Davide has shown his support by adding a comment on the post. He said: "Well said baby" followed by a clapping hands emoji. Ekin-Su replied to the comment with "Thank you baby" followed by a red love heart emoji.

Former Love Island host Laura Whitmore also commented a red love heart emoji. After the 2022 series of Love Island Laura announced she would be stepping down from hosting the show.

She said: "Some news! I won’t be hosting the next series of Love Island. There are certain elements of the show I’ve found very difficult that cannot be changed some due to the format, including the flying back and forth to South Africa along with my new conflicting projects."

Only one other 2022 Love Islander has commented on the post, with Danica Taylor saying "Beauty" with a heart eyes emoji. It has been weeks since Davide and Ekin-Su have been seen with any other Islanders, leading fans to believe Ekin-Su may be aiming her message at some of her fellow cast members.

Other 2022 Islanders have been meeting up and spending time together, including Luca Bish and Andrew Le Page and Tasha Ghouri, Danica, and Antigoni Buxton. Currently, Ekin-Su is the face of the fashion brand Oh Polly.
