From the moment when she entered the villa, Ekin-Su wasted no time getting to know the lads, delivering sensational one-liners and wise advice.
It’s not just her innate ability to ruffle a few feathers that has left many fans obsessed with the influencer though. After snooping through her Instagram for an insight into her life outside the villa, viewers soon spotted Ekin-Su’s striking resemblance to her mum, which has left Love Island fans convinced that they are ‘twins’.
The mother-daughter duo don’t just look alike either, as they’re also super close.
Ekin-Su’s mum Sezer Cülcüloğlu, 56, is a retired teacher and psychotherapist who resides in Loughton, Essex.
She lives with Ekin-Su’s dad Zekai, 59, and her younger brother Arda, 17, and the trio have enjoyed watching their loved one on the show.
They’ve even appeared on television themselves, chatting to Laura Whitmore on After Sun.
Speaking back in June, Sezer revealed to OK! that Ekin-Su has been “determined” to become famous since the age of three and is already a big name in Turkey. And by the looks of it, her family cannot be more supportive of the 27 year old.
Her mum said: “She was born to be a star and she always wanted to be famous”, adding: “She has always wanted to grab people’s attention.”
“Su came to the villa late so what do you expect? She had to push the limits. She is the bombshell and the producers expected her to cause explosions, otherwise, she will get sent home.
“The other contestants are lucky because they got to couple up early. Su has always been competitive but she can’t sit around and wait for the boys to come to her.
“She is pushing herself in front of the other girls and making clear the boys she likes – so people might find that irritating at times. But she has to be dominant otherwise she will lose,” she continued.
Ekin-Su’s mum appears to have the same competitive spirit as the star who is currently coupled up with Italian stallion Davide Sanclimenti again.
And it’s safe to say, Sezer is her daughter’s number one fan whether it’s acting, singing or being on a hit UK reality TV show.
“Su’s very focused on her career right now. She wants to be famous and successful but she’s also looking to fall in love, of course. She is carrying the show for me – and everyone is saying that. It’s Ekin-Su’s island now,” she added.
