Davide Sanclimenti, Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, Love Island, The Big Breakfast
Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Davide Sanclimenti have revealed they will star in their own ITV2 show.
The series will see the Love Island winners spend a week in Turkey – where Ekin-Su is of course from – and another week in Davide’s home country of Italy.
The couple announced the news on The Big Breakfast on Channel 4 (yes, it’s back!) this morning (Saturday, August 13).
Davide confirmed: “We are going to road trip to Italy and Turkey – so one week in Italy and one week in Turkey.
“We are going to be on ITV2, so it’s going to be like our own programme.”
Presenter AJ Odudu asked: “You’re going on a trip and we get to come with you?!”
“Yes!” Ekin-Su said. “It’ll be all real, you know, fighting and I’ll be cooking for him, he’ll be cooking for me. It’ll be like two cultures–”
“Meeting family,” Davide added.

Elsewhere on the show, Ekin-Su revealed she had been shouting at Davide every day – and teased that they would be moving in together “soon”.
Love Island fans had been begging for the duo to land their own show after seeing them fooling around a romantic date to a vineyard earlier in the series.
Their bickering and banter became TV gold which eventually landed them the winning couple prize.
One supporter commented on Twitter: “YESSSSS!!! ITV2 giving us what we want. Series confirmed for Ekin-Su and Davide as they spend a week in Turkey and a week in Italy.”
Another said: “Davide and Ekin-Su are actually getting a show on ITV2, so happy for them.”
A third excitedly posted: “Ekin Su and Davide getting their own programme is the best thing I’ve heard this week! I’ve missed them.”
Earlier this week there were reports that Ekin-Su was set to join Loose Women.
