Love Island winner 'lined up for Strictly Come Dancing 2022' claim bookies | The Sun

EKIN-SU Culculoglu is riding high since winning Love Island with her man Davide Sanclimenti – but she is now being "lined up for Strictly".

It comes hot on the heels after The Sun revealed how the Turkish beauty, 27, is set to become the richest Islander ever — with global superbrands queuing up to work with her.


According to the bookies, Ekin-Su is tipped to be swapping her bikini for a sequin dress, and will be taking to the dancefloor this autumn.

The Love Island beauty is now 4/1 to appear on the next series of Strictly Come Dancing.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "She'll still be suffering from jetlag, but Ekin-Su was such a success in the villa that Strictly chiefs may well be preparing a move for her for the upcoming series."

Meanwhile, as fashion, beauty and life­style firms circle, brand experts reckon Ekin-Su's earnings could even surpass that of Love Island multi-millionaire ­Molly-Mae Hague.

But ITV have first dibs and intend to get her and villa lover Davide, 27, signed up for a spin-off show.

A source said: “There’s a pretty well-trodden path for Love Island winners. Over the past seven series it’s the usual fast fashion, drugstore make-up and then, of course, teeth whitening and protein shakes.

“Only Molly-Mae has really and truly broken that mould but even she ended up finding a home at a High Street fashion brand, Pretty Little Thing, albeit on a £250,000 salary.

“Ekin’s appeal to brands appears to have gone way beyond all that. It’s not just clothing brands, but big, global corporate brands that want to work with her. She’s going to be a very, very busy girl.”

ITV bosses are waiting in the wings ready to sign the couple up for a spin-off show, following them for the rest of the year.

Both their Love Island contracts include exclusivity rights for the channel.

An insider said: “Just like with Olivia and Chris from 2018 then Jack and Dani in 2019, a spin-off show following Ekin and Davide would be a real ratings spinner.

“It is one of the first things ITV want to discuss with them.”

Brand guru Jonathan Shalit of InterTalent said: “Ekin-Su is funny, confident and the star of this series. She’s a girl’s girl which will go a long way in enticing brands. She could earn at least a million in the coming year.”

Earlier today, Davide teased fans that a spin-off show could become a reality after sharing a fan comment begging for the couple to return their screen.

It read: "Petition for Ekin-Su and Davide to have their own TV show where they travel around Italy, eating food and arguing and laughing together. #LoveIsland"
