It might only be the first week of Love Island 2022, but things are already starting to heat up. Just a couple of days into the eighth season, this year’s islanders are set to welcome two brand new girls into the Majorcan villa. ITV has now shared details of the newbies to the public, and viewers will be tasked with deciding which boys to send them on dates with. If you’re keen to get to know the villa’s newest residents, here’s everything to know about Love Island’s Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu.

What Is Ekin-Su’s Job?

27-year-old Cülcüloğlu is based in Essex and currently works as an actress, starring in the Turkish show Kuzey Yildizi.

What Is Ekin-Su’s Instagram?

Before entering the Love Island villa, Cülcüloğlu has already amassed a very impressive follower count with more than 350,000 Instagram followers at the time of writing - a figure that will only increase in the coming weeks. Followers of Cülcüloğlu can expect to find some expertly taken photos of her everyday life, holiday snaps, and the occasional modelling shot.

What Else Is There To Know About Ekin-Su?

Cülcüloğlu believes the “concept” of ITV’s hit reality dating show “brings back true and raw feelings,” and during her Love Island stint, she hopes to find a “real genuine spark” with a special someone who “just see me as me.”

In the villa, Cülcüloğlu is “there to make friends” but isn’t afraid of “treading on toes.” She adds, “I’m there to find the love of my life. I need to find the man of my dreams so if there is another girl in the way, I don’t care.”

When it comes to dating, Cülcüloğlu says she is not “just looking for looks.” However, she can be “quite picky” and isn’t a fan of small hands. Ahead of her arrival in the villa, she explained, “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.” The actress also admits that she “used to fall in love quite quickly,” but nowadays doesn’t “fall for the little tricks.”

Love Island currently airs nightly on ITV2 and ITV Hub. Episodes are available the following morning on BritBox.
