Davide Sanclimenti’s friends have addressed a heated post made in the direction of Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu as their partnership continues to hit the rocks.
Fans saw Ekin-Su and Davide couple up last week after the Turkish soap actress entered the villa as a bombshell alongside Afia Tonkmor.
However, despite their chemistry quickly sizzling, Ekin-Su’s attentions have now turned to Jay Younger, who she has been sharing sneaky kisses with in the villa.
Tonight, Davide is set to find out exactly what’s been going on, which will surely cause things to kick off on a massive scale.
But after Davide’s friends voiced their feeling’s at the bombshell’s behaviour, who they felt was making a ‘desperate attempt to steal the show,’ they have apologised.
Last night, those who are running his social media accounts wrote: ‘Following yesterday’s post, we would like to clarify as Davide’s friends, it can be frustrating to see someone play with his emotions and in the heat of the moment felt a need to voice it.
‘Davide has pure intentions and and we felt this was not reciprocated.’
They went on to add: ‘However, we would like to point out that we understand out views and opinions may not necessarily reflect his. We have decided to keep the original post up as this is a place of conversation and people are entitled to their opinions whether we agree or not.
‘We hope he finds a true connection in the villa with someone and continues to entertain you all as the Davide we know and love.’
It came after Ekin-Su’s family addressed the initial post themselves, reminding Davide’s friends that those who were looking after islanders’ social media were supposed to keep a ‘neutral’ stance on the contestants.
Their post read: ‘Just wanted to make sure we understand the roles in handling [accounts]. We’re supposed to be neutral and little digs to other cast members should not be tolerated.
‘Most behaviours on the show have been designed for audience’s entertainment. No hate, just lessons to be learnt.’
Ekin-Su, 27, and Jay, 28, were seen sneaking off to the terrace on two separate occasions for a heart-to-heart and secret kiss, even crawling on the floor to avoid detection.
Downstairs, Davide, 27, questioned where Ekin-Su was and quickly learned of her whereabouts, and who she was with, prompting them to head back downstairs after another smooch, and confided in Gemma Owen and Paige Thorne.
After last night’s dramatic episode, a teaser for Friday’s instalment shows Ekin-Su’s antics are set to be exposed as Davide angrily confronts her.
In the teaser, Davide yells at Ekin-Su to ‘f*** of’ after branding her a ‘liar and an actress’.
Clearly one not to be missed…
Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
