Ekin-Su insists she and Davide have ‘nothing to prove’ after ‘fake relationship’ claimsFebruary 20, 2023
Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu has insisted she and Davide Sanclimenti have "nothing to prove" after fake relationship claims, in an exclusive chat with OK!.
The 28 year old star has enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame since she burst onto our screens in last year's summer Love Island, where she met 'Italian stallion' Davide, also 28.
The pair charmed Love Island viewers with their relationship, leading to them winning the show by a landslide and taking home the £50,000 cash prize.
Ekin-Su and Davide have proven any naysayers who doubted their love wrong, as they remain together to this day, and moved in to a home together in London in November 2022.
Late last year, Ekin-Su slammed TikTok star Max Balegde after he claimed that a 'prominent UK couple' are faking their very public relationship, with fans speculating that Max was talking about Ekin-Su and Davide.
Speaking exclusively to OK!, Ekin-Su said of her relationship with the Italian hunk: "I don’t feel like we need to prove anything to anyone about our relationship. We are happy and in love and that’s all that matters."
The former Dancing on Ice star also spoke about how it is living with her boyfriend, as she insisted Davide "doesn’t have any annoying habits".
Ekin-Su said: "He really is so great to live with! But remember we sort of had a head start to this as we both lived together in the love island villa 24/7."
Davide gets top marks for his romantic gestures, recently surprising Ekin-Su on Valentine's Day with an extravagant table display at their home, which included red roses, balloons and some delicious-looking desserts.
Not only that, but he also whisked Ekin-Su away for a romantic trip to the Maldives, following her exit from ITV's Dancing On Ice when she became the third person to leave the show earlier this month.
Although Ekin-Su was left in tears as it was announced that she'd lost in the DOI skate off to ex-EastEnders star Patsy Palmer, it seems that she's looking back on the show with positivity.
She told us: "I feel absolutely fine about everything. It was honestly such a great experience and met some amazing people on the show who I have become really good friends with."
Ekin-Su also opened up on Davide taking her to Rome at Christmas, which she described as "the most romantic thing he's ever done for me".
She said: "The most romantic thing Davide has ever done for me is taking me to Rome for Christmas where he gave a promise ring in the most incredible outside dinner environment with views."
Being an ex-Love Island star, it's no surprise that Ekin-Su has been keeping up to date with the show this year, as she revealed that TikTok farmer, Will Young, is her favourite Islander as "he seems the most entertaining."
Ekin-Su, who was speaking to promote Nutella Pancake Day, shared her favourite recipe for the sweet treat, which she created with Nutella.
The batter creatively combines both savoury and sweet ingredients, using mashed sweet potato, before topping with a touch of Nutella, Greek yoghurt, pomegranates and pistachios.
Ekin-Su was crowned the "Queen of Pancakes" in the villa last year as she engaged in – and won – a pancake-off with Nathalia Campos in a battle for Davide's affections.
The star said his love for pancakes are still strong, adding: "Of course pancakes are the way to Davide’s heart."
