Love Island winner Davide Sanclimenti confirms split with Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu

Fan favourite couple Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Davide Sanclimenti have announced their break-up on social media. The reality TV stars have separated just 1 year after winning ITV’s dating show Love Island.

Taking to Instagram late last night (June 29), Davide confirmed that he and Ekin-Su “are no longer together.”

"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 any way possible,” he wrote.

Ekin-Su has not yet spoken publicly about the split, but according to her social media, she seems to have been enjoying herself on holidays with her mum and aunt.

The news may not come as a shock to fans, as Ekin-Su has been noticeably absent from Davide's Instagram feed for several weeks now.

However, just a couple of days ago the pair were pictured together at the movie premiere of Indiana Jones And The Dial Of Destiny. Ekin-Su shared a picture of herself and Davide at the event in London, writing: "Indiana Jones premier with my man."

Over the past 10 months the couple had announced they were moving in together, and featured in an ITV spin-off show in which they explored their home countries of Italy and Turkey.

In last year’s series of Love Island, the controversial couple came first place. Runners-up Luca Bish and Gemma Owen split less than four months after exiting the villa.
