Inside Love Island star Ekin-Sus lavish life – from TV judge role to expensive makeovers

Bombshell Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu has made quite the impression since entering the Love Island villa last week.

The 27 year old actress arrived alongside 25 year old Afia Tonkm, who became the first girl to leave, and is currently coupled up with 27 year old Italian stallion Davide Sanclimenti.

Ahead of the show, she opened up about what she's searching for. "I’m looking for that real genuine spark and they just see me as me," she said. "I think the concept of the show brings back true and raw feelings."

When asked why she's currently single, she 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."

TV past

It's not the first time Ekin-Su has been on screen. Before making her Love Island debut, she appeared on the Turkish version of the BBC singing contest All Together Now, Benimle Söyle, as one of the audience judges.

She’s also had success in her acting career, as she starred in Turkish soap Kuzey Yildizi İlk Aşk, which means North Star First Love. Ekin-Su played photographer and blogger Işıl on the show.

She has opened up about her previous roles on the ITV2 dating series. “I’ve played really weird characters,” she said, adding: “I’ve played a serial killer.”

Expensive makeovers

Last year, Ekin-Su underwent a smile makeover to get her dream teeth.

Posting a photo at Dental Design in Antayla, Turkey, she wrote on Instagram in October: “Already missing sitting in this chair…

“So happy with the results of my new teeth @dentaldesignturkey you are the bestest best… – teeth are so important if you’re wanting that Hollywood smile then this is it…”
