Love Island’s Ekin-Su’s enjoyed secret dates with Made In Chelsea star
Before making her mark on the Love Island villa this year, Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu apparently hit it off with former Made In Chelsea star and Binky Felstead’s ex Josh Patterson
Love Island bombshell Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu reportedly dated former Made In Chelsea star Josh Patterson before appearing in the villa.
The 27-year-old Turkish-born actress – who clashed with Gemma Owen on the ITV2 show on Monday evening – was said to have wowed the dad-of-one in a string of secret dates together last year.
While Ekin-Su is currently taking the villa by storm, 32-year-old Josh appeared on Made In Chelsea for three years between 2015-2018.
He dated co-star Binky Felstead and welcomed daughter India, now five, with the star before they split shortly after her birth.
But it appears Ekin-Su has since caught Josh’s attention.
According to The Sun, the pair hit it off during their secret meet ups last year.
A source told the publication: “They went on a few dates and got on really well.
“Josh has nothing but good things to say about Ekin-Su, but he’s a little bit embarrassed that she’s suddenly everywhere.”
It’s believed that Ekin-Su has also previously dated TOWIE star James Locke.
Meanwhile, the actress has certainly made a lasting impression in the Love Island villa this year.
The bombshell was previously coupled up with Davide Sanclimenti, before sneakily moving on with newcomer Jay Younger.
The pair caused a stir after going behind Davide’s back and enjoying a secret kiss on the terrace.
However, just as Ekin-Su admitted to ‘falling’ for Jay, the Scotsman decided to couple up with Paige Thorne.
She is currently paired with the show’s latest bombshell Charlie Radnedge.
But the drama certainly doesn’t end there!
During last night’s show (June 27), Ekin-Su came to blows with her co-stars as she attempted to stir the pot between Gemma Owen and Luca Bish.
The pair had a heated row after Dami pretended to read Gemma’s mind about how she was feeling about her time in the villa.
During his reading, Dami said: “You’re happy with Luca right now. I feel like it would take a lot for your head to turn but there is a small chance that it probably could if someone really came in that was 100% you.”
“I feel like that is where the confusion would probably come for you because we’re not here to play games. I feel like you’re still open in a sense, probably more open than Luca,” he concluded.
Gemma agreed and admitted: “Yeah, that was quite impressive. I don’t think you’re that far wrong.”
Whilst Dami told everyone to keep the conversation private, Ekin-Su quickly told Paige and Jacques what was said and he went on to confess to Luca about what happened – as the drama started to unfold.
In a tense row, Gemma told Ekin-Su: “You have started this, you’ve made drama over nothing! You had no right to say that and knew that was going to cause s***,” as Gemma was left feeling more anger when Ekin-Su said it was “no big deal”.
The Mirror has contacted representatives for Josh and Love Island for comment.
Love Island airs at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub. Episodes are available the following morning on BritBox.
