Love Island's Ekin-Su Culculoglu shocked her fellow Islanders as she coupled up with Davide Sanclimenti once again on the show.

The 27-year-old actress and the 27-year-old business owner were coupled up earlier in the series but it ended in a huge bust up when he slammed her as a "liar", but Ekin-Su admitted on Wednesday night's (29.06.22) episode that she wanted to give the star "a chance".

During the recoupling, she said: "Firstly this is going to be one of the hardest decisions I've ever had to make.

"I didn't know whether to play it safe or take a risk. I personally would like to give this person a chance and I'm hoping he would too.

"So the boy I want to couple up with is Davide."

She then went to sit next to Davide, and he said: "Nice speech."

Ekin-Su was previously deliberating over whether to choose Davide, newcomer Charlie Radnedge, or to stick with Jay Younger.

After she chose Davide, Charlie, 28, and Jay, 28, were remaining with Antigoni Buxton, 26, and Danica Taylor, 21, left to pick.

Earlier in the episode, dancer Danica had pulled Jay for a chat to see if he was interested, but he made it clear he would prefer to get to know Antigoni.

However, during the recoupling Danica was allowed to pick first and chose Jay.

Antigoni - who was left to pick Charlie - mouthed: "I can't believe this s***."

She later spoke to some of the girls and fumed: "I just don't get it. Danica and Jay have no connection."

Dami Hope, 26, told Jay he thought he had "closed the door" on a possible romance with Danica, and he replied: "I thought I closed the door, I thought it was a sure thing. I couldn't have closed it any more.

"I think I said to her, 'The door's closed. Don't pick me.' "

Danica later said: "If I genuinely knew, hands down, that Jay and Antigoni could possibly have something then I'm not saying it would have swayed what I was going to do but it might have been like, 'Oh f***.' "

Earlier in the episode, Antigoni and Danica had both signalled their interests in Jay.

Antigoni told the girls: "With Davide, I'm super comfortable - we really get along. Whatever it ended up being, it would be authentic.

"With Jay there was an initial attraction there but obviously I came in as this whole saga with Paige was unravelling and now he's turned round in the last few days and is like I want to get to know you on a more romantic level.

"Part of me would like to get to know Jay still."

Danica pulled Jay for a chat and told him: "If I'm honest, you were in my top three when I first came in, looks wise, so it's not like I'd be completely closed off to being in a couple with yourself.

"I think it's important for me to let you know that you're somebody that I would consider."
