Love Island 2022: Villa

Ekin-Su Culculoglu is a 27-year-old actress from Essex who stars on a programme called Kuzey Yildizi in Turkey.

The latest Love Island bombshell revealed that she’s looking for a “genuine spark” after becoming disillusioned with dating apps.

In an enigmatic fashion, she described herself as “mysterious in a way” but she has also divulged that she expects to bring “a lot of advice” to the villa.

The actress has also revealed she thinks it’s time for her to stop her cycle of falling for “narcissistic men”.

Admittedly though, she said: “If I want something, I don’t care what gets in the way.”

However, she also lifted the lid on one of her biggest turn-offs.

She said small hands are her “biggest ick”.

Revealing why she thinks she’s single, she said: “Partially because I’m quite picky and I’m not just looking for looks, I’m looking for brains!

“I’m looking for someone with intelligence, someone who can have good chats. Nothing like cockiness! I’m looking for a serious man and a serious relationship.”
