The fairytale romance of Ekin-Su Culculoglu and Davide Sanclimenti, winners of Love Island, has come to an end less than a year after their triumph on the popular reality show.
The couple, who secured a significant majority of the public vote in August of the previous year, recently announced their breakup.
Davide Sanclimenti’s Announcement on Instagram
Taking to his Instagram story on Thursday, Sanclimenti shared the news of their separation, expressing gratitude for the memories and opportunities they shared together.
He wished Culculoglu, his former partner, nothing but the best in the future.
Sanclimenti also requested respect for their decision during this challenging time and assured that he would continue to support Culculoglu in any way he can.
Culculoglu’s Silence on the Matter
As of now, Ekin-Su Culculoglu has not publicly addressed the breakup.
Recent Appearance and Future Plans
Interestingly, just three days prior to the announcement, Culculoglu and Sanclimenti were seen together at the London premiere of “Indiana Jones And The Dial Of Destiny.”
The couple had made plans to move in together over the past ten months and even featured in an ITV spin-off show, where they explored their respective home countries of Italy and Turkey.
Sanclimenti’s Advice to Future Love Island Contestants
In a previous interview on ITV’s Good Morning Britain (GMB) in January, Sanclimenti offered advice to future Love Island contestants, emphasizing the importance of being genuine and seeking love rather than fame.
He encouraged contestants to be themselves and enter the villa with the genuine intention of finding a meaningful connection.
