Love Island’s Ekin-Su: I’ve lost every friend I had since appearing on the ITV2 show

Love Island winnerEkin-Suhas revealed that she’s lost almost every friend she had before going on the show and now finds it hard to trust people.

The star, 28, won the ITV2 show alongsidepartner Davide Sanclimentiin 2022 and the couple were popular in the polls, winning 63.7% of the public vote.

Despite her popularity while on the ITV show,Ekin-Su has opened upabout how she does not have many friends, telling Cosmopolitan UK: “I’ve lost every friend I had. I don’t have any friends. I have one friend and that’s it. Unfortunately, with the fame, you see people’s true colours.

“People just want to be your friend because of your status, and it’s a hard industry to trust. No, I don’t actually have friends left. People I’d known for 10 years who were in my life… selling stories is not very nice. I wouldn’t do that to someone.”

The star also explained how, if it was the other way around, and her friends had shot to fame and were happy, she would support them.

The former Love Islander also revealed that she struggled with her mental health while competing on Dancing On Ice earlier this year, and said that she had to “pretend everything was fine”.

She explained that she found work commitments “mentally draining” and needed to take some time out for herself by going to the Maldives with partner Sanclimenti, where she could forget about “the stuff online”.

She told the magazine: “There have been things in my life that I can’t mention now that have affected my mental health for a while. I had to keep smiling and pretend everything was fine.”

Ekin-Su was the third celebrity eliminated from Dancing On Ice 2023, and had said she pulled a muscle on her left leg shortly before the week she had to skate for her survival.

Last month, the couple put on a loved-up display as they headed out on a date night after rumours that Davide "texted models" behind Ekin's back surfaced.

The former Islanders visited Sheesh restaurant in London for their romantic meal and kept their fans updated by sharing a few snaps of their evening.

"Date night with my woman," Davide wrote on Instagram, alongside a cute selfie of the pair.

It comes after Ekin was left reportedly "furious" after allegedly finding messages on her boyfriend's phone from two models.

After claims that Davide allegedly met Instagram influencers in Manchester before later texting them, Ekin-Su reportedly discovered the messages and asked one of the girls herself what has been going on.
