New Love Island bombshell Ekin-Su is 27 and based in Essex

Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu has been revealed as a Love Island bombshell and she is 27-years-old and based in Essex. This makes her one of the older cast members in the villa at the moment. When asked why she wants to be on Love Island, she said: “I’m looking for that real genuine spark and they just see me as me. I think the concept of the show brings back true and raw feelings.”

She’s an actress and influencer

Ekin-Su is Turkish, and has starred in a Turkish TV series called Kuzey Yildizi. She also works as an influencer and has done collabs with brands such as FashionNova.

Ekin-Su was rumoured for Love Island this year, before the show began

If you thought she looked a bit familiar, that’s because Ekin-Su was among the rumoured cast list before Love Island had even begun. At the time, a source close to the show told The Sun: “Ekin-Su is the perfect contestant to get viewers tuning in this summer. Not only is she beautiful, she’s also used to being on TV and moves in showbiz circles so she’s sure to bring fireworks. She’ll have no shortage of guys after her in the villa, that’s for sure.”

‘I’m quite picky and I’m not just looking for looks’

When asked why she thinks she’s single, Ekin-Su said: “Partially because I’m quite picky and I’m not just looking for looks, I’m looking for brains! I’m looking for someone with intelligence, someone who can have good chats. Nothing like cockiness! I’m looking for a serious man and a serious relationship.”

She has over 350k Instagram followers

Probably down to her being an actress and influencer before the show, but Ekin-Su already has a huge following on Instagram. She posts loads of pictures of her travelling, selfies and her out for dinner and drinks. She’s followed on Instagram by TOWIE stars Pete Wicks and James Locke, as well as Wayne Lineker and Piers Morgan’s son, Spencer.
