Gwyneth Paltrow continues to be great buds with Dakota Johnson — the current girlfriend of her ex-husband, Chris Martin — just proving … Hollywood divorce…
Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu has come a long way since entering the Love Island villa last year as a sexy singleton looking for love.
The 28-year-old model stole the hearts of the nation as well as catching the eye of fellow Love Islander Davide Saclimente, who she later won the 2022 series with.
The British actress, model and television personality comes from Turkish origin, and has been entertaining viewers with her sexy antics on Dancing On Ice as well as on her ITV2 reality show Ekin-Su and Davide: Homecomings.

The stunning brunette has become a firm favourite thanks to her brutal honesty and funny lines that has seen her become a successful reality star.
Ekin-Su first came to UK screens as a newcomer causing drama on Love Island in 2022. Joining the villa alongside Afia Tonkmoor, she quickly made moves on Love Islander Jacques before settling down with Italian hunk Davide.
Although the couple had their ups and downs, she went on to be crowned the Love Island winner alongside her Italian beau as the couple took a record-breaking 63.9% of the public vote.
Davide and Ekin-Su are still loved up and going strong, with the couple dismissing rumours they had split after leaving the villa.
In fact, Ekin-Su opened up about how she has found it difficult to navigate dating under a spotlight.
She told OK!: "One thing I’ve learnt in this relationship, you have to trust your boyfriend or girlfriend because in the public eye, it’s not easy.
"Especially when people will make up rumours or say things, or they see things, or things could look different from a picture.
"You just have to communicate with your partner, trust your partner and keep your relationship private."
Ekin-Su and Davide: Homecoming
In November last year, Ekin-Su and Davide returned to ITV screens as they took part in their own mini reality series.
The series sees the couple taking their relationship to the next level by visiting their home countries.
Italian Davide takes Ekin-Su to his hometown of Frosinone for the first time since leaving the Love Island villa to soak up the Italian way of life, before taking her on a romantic trip to Verona.
In turn, Ekin-Su takes Davide to Turkey and capital Istanbul before heading to visit her family in the village of Odemis.
The series aired last year but viewers jumped at the chance to get a glimpse of the couple's relationship, as well as being introduced to the pair's family and friends along their journey.
Dancing On Ice
Last month saw Ekin-Su don her skates as she headed for the ice rink to take part in the latest series of Dancing On Ice.
Partnered with Brendyn Hatfield, Ekin-Su was unfortunately voted off in the third skate off of the series when she faced EastEnders actress Patsy Palmer.
In an emotional and teary goodbye, Ekin-Su could be seen being comforted by her fellow celebrities and ice skaters.
Speaking on a Love Island chat show on Reddit alongside Love Islander Joe Garratt, Ekin revealed she was gutted to be voted off.
She said: "I gave everything to that show. I had other commitments and I was juggling everything at the same time, and I had no days off at the time."
Her first performance on the ITV show gathered complaints to OFCOM as viewers labelled the routine as "too sexy".
The sexy performance sparked 112 Ofcom complaints as she recreated her famous Love Island terrace crawl during her racy routine, which host Holly described as "the sexiest performance."
'Ekin-Su focused more on pleasing DOI fans than skating,' says Jake Quickenden
