Love Island’s 2022 winner Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu has denied claims that she cancelled her line-up of UK club appearances for bigger money elsewhere.

The 27-year-old explained the real reason behind her withdrawal from the expected club appearances after winning the ITV2 love game show with Davide Sanclimenti.

The Turkish soap actress has reportedly been overflowed with big brand deals causing her to pull out of her club events.

PRYZM nightclub in Leeds posted a now-deleted statement on their disappointment with the cancellation.

They wrote: “We have been informed by Ekin Su’s team that due to her getting crazy money offers from lots of other massive company’s and increased TV commitments they’ve cancelled all of her UK club appearances.

“We are as disappointed as you, and we’re even more disappointed that the only replacements we’ve been offered are Danica, Adam or Billy.”

But the reality star has now revealed that she has “contractual obligations” as a Love Island winner which means that she has to miss the August 15 appearance in Leeds.

The star’s representative told The Sun: “The financial side does not come into it, as [public appearances] can be lucrative.

“The reality is that the schedule of PAs that had been arranged for Ekin-Su whilst she was in the villa do not allow her to fulfil pre-existing contractual obligations owed to ITV as a winner of Love Island.”

They added: “Additionally Ekin-Su also has filming commitments to undertake.”

PRYZM Leeds have since apologised for the previous post, stating “these are not our words”.

The winning couple have since appeared on Loose Women, on Monday August 8, and confirmed that they plan on moving in together in September or October.
