Ekin-Su greeted by fans in LA as she starts new project

Love Island winner Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu is busy working in LA – spending one week without her co-star boyfriend Davide Sanclimenti.

The former Turkish soap star is shooting an exciting new project in the US and says she has been “overwhelmed” by her support across the pond.

Video show fans flocking to meet the 28-year-old as she commanded attention walking around the streets of Los Angeles.

She filmed a video before jetting out to America, sat in the airport’s business lounge – announcing the project was “amazing” and “exciting”.

The Essex beauty will spend one week in LA for the shoot while beau Davide spends some time alone at home in the UK.

“Hey guys hope you’re all well so I’m currently in the business lounge and I’m about to hop on the plane,” she shared in an Instagram story post.

She said: “Guys stay tuned for best seven days. I cannot wait I’m so excited, it’s going to be amazing I will show you some teasers.”

“I wish I could tell you all what I’m doing its going to be amazing, ugh just get me there now.”

Before revealing where she was going, she teased fans with a Q&A, getting her 2.8 million followers to guess where she was working.

“So everyone who guessed where I’m staying,” she said after arriving. “Most of you got it right, I’m actually in LA and I’m very excited to be shooting here. I’m so excited I’m finally here, LA baby.”

She then posted videos meeting fans in the street. People were seen gushing over the reality TV star, saying they loved British Love Island over in the US.

Ekin couldn’t quite believe how many people would recognise her given she made a name for herself on telly in the UK.

“Fans in the USA,” she posted. “Overwhelmed how much love there is in LA and how much they supported me during the show.”

She won the hit-ITV2 dating show alongside Davide earlier last month, beating runners-up Gemma Owen and Luca Bish.

The couple had also beaten couples Indiyah Polack and Dami Hope and Tasha Ghouri and Andrew Le Page, who finished third and fourth respectively.

Ahead of the dramatic final, the bookies were backing Davide and Ekin-Su for the win to take home the prize money.

The fan favourite couple were odds-on favourites to go all the way and be crowned champions of this year’s series of Love Island.

Befred had the Italian business owner and the Turkish actress as 1/8 on to win the public vote this evening – meaning gamblers would have to part with £8 in return for winning an additional £1!

The gambling company also predicted the fiery couple may become the first couple not to split the £50,000 cash prize – with both stars down as 25/1 to steal the prize money if they win.

Unlike in previous years, the winning couple did not have to choose whether to split or steal the prize money.
