What happened with Ekin-Su and Davide?

Ekin-Su and Davide met on season 8 of Love Island back in 2022. They went on to win the show together and left as a couple, even starring in their own travel show, Ekin-Su and Davide: Homecomings.

Almost a year after they got together, Davide announced they'd gone their separate ways in June 2023.

Despite this, the pair were later spotted out together and appeared to be very much loved up.

Six months later in January 2024, they confirmed they'd broken up again.

During an episode of CBB, Ekin-Su opened up about her split from Sanclimenti, telling Marisha Wallace: "They always say to me that the man should be more into the woman."

When Marisha agreed, Ekin-Su added: "That's the mistake I made," before adding: "Let's just say he hurt me."
