Effectively, after a nail-biting finale which ultimately felt as by means of it may have gone both means, queen Ekin-su Cülcüloğlu and Davide Sanclimenti beat Gemma Owen and Luca Bish within the Love Island finale.

Love Island’s eight sequence managed to succeed in one of the best rankings in years with the ultimate attracting probably the most viewers since 2019.

Why? Effectively, if anybody’s has stored us all hooked to the drama of that villa is it for sure Ekin-su.

From the second she crawled on the ground for a secret kiss with Jay Younger on the balcony when there are many locations to cover for a cheeky tune (belief us, we’ve been to the villa), to the second she was serenaded by ‘some singer’ Alife Boe Ekin-su introduced the enjoyable and coronary heart to Love Island.

She was the drama queen, the best friend and now the winner all rolled into one.

Following the Turkish Delight’s win with her Italian Stallion, caught up with Ekin-su’s self-proclaimed ‘superfans’ who advised us what she means to them and why all of us fell head over heels for her all summer season.

I see Ekin-su as among the best islanders to have ever graced the villa. From the second she walked in I knew we might be in for a trip.

Ekin has given us among the most iconic moments from the entire eight seasons, just like the notorious terrace crawl and her prepare dinner off with Nathalia.

Whereas her journey has been a little bit of a rollercoaster, she’s confirmed herself to be one of the vital real islanders we’ve ever seen – undoubtedly not pretend just like the Louis Vuitton from China.

We’ve seen so many dimensions to her, from her assured and humorous facet to the extra susceptible nature we’ve seen as she’s progressed by means of the sequence.

To me, Ekin is the epitome of confidence and extra importantly, expressing your true self. All through the complete expertise, Ekin has been unapologetically herself and clearly evokes folks to observe in her footsteps.

She has grow to be a staple character and reference for my associates and I. Her reactions have made gifs that can be utilized in actually any state of affairs. Ekin is a very wonderful person and I can’t wait to see what alternatives come up for her exterior of the villa.

When Ekin-su first got here in she was the bombshell all of us wanted. She was actually assured in herself and knew what she wished.

She by no means listened to what the blokes have been saying (which is sweet for her) and had her eyes on what her finish aim was and that why all of us fell for her.

She’s been a incredible islander this yr for a few causes. Primary is clearly leisure worth. She actually paced the present and I feel with out her, this yr’s Love Island would’ve been too sanitised- everybody is aware of you’re being watched on a regular basis, scripted, and so forth. she is aware of precisely the right way to play to the digicam in a means that’s fairly apparent, however I feel makes her extra self-aware than these pretending to be unaware of the Love Island impact.

I feel she additionally reveals a extremely juxtaposition of being gentle and agency on the similar time, which is sweet to see in Love Island, the place individuals are usually proven as much more one dimensional. I really like a redemption arc!

On a deeper stage, I really like the truth that she’s been so robust in her help for the women – from the clearly scripted “I’m not right here to make seasonal girlfriends”, she’s fully disproved that and been one of many kindest islanders, exhibiting you can be sassy, have enjoyable, and at all times stick up for ladies.

No different islander would ever have used their expertise portion to sing praises of the opposite ladies within the island and I don’t assume individuals are holding onto that sufficient!

She simply needs everybody to really feel beloved and is clearly on a mission to boost different ladies up – she does extra than simply speak the speak.

Emily wasn’t at all times an enormous Ekin-su fan however her love for her has ‘grown exponentially’

Very similar to Maura Higgins earlier than her, she has received folks over and can go down in historical past as among the best islanders of all time. She’s hilariously humorous, intelligent, sort and speaks her thoughts.

She is a really robust lady, whereas additionally having a really human vulnerability to her. In Unseen Bits, you actually see her persona and what’s to not love? She’s a 11/10 allrounder.

Whereas she could be a bit dramatic at occasions, who isn’t? All of us love a little bit of drama (whether or not we’ll admit it or not…).

I feel folks relate to her and might see the motivations behind her actions. Whereas she has been reckless at occasions, I feel we’ve actually seen her develop and permit herself to place her guard down in terms of opening up with Davide.

I don’t essentially assume they’ll final however I do consider their emotions for one another are actual, even when they secretly each hate that they’re.

Jayde can’t await Ekin-su to take over the world

Ekin-Su was so iconic to observe as a result of she got here with unmatched assured power we’ve by no means seen earlier than.

We watched her keep robust, be herself, upset the boys by behaving the best way boys do and face misogynistic losers whereas being probably the most lovely bombshell the villa has ever seen.

She’s been probably the most gratifying islander ever to observe as a result of she adopted her coronary heart and genuinely discovered probably the most chemistry soaked romance that each girl goals of getting.

A proposal with a tiramisu? Mom Ekin deserves that and extra.

Effectively, there are simply among the causes Ekin-su is already a actuality TV icon, and is leaving the villa with the world her oyster in a single day.

Love Island may be over however that is only the start for our queen and we can not wait to see the magic unfold.

The whole sequence of Love Island is out there to stream on ITV Hub.
