Love Island’s Ekin-Su looks unrecognisable in budget ‘reality show’ before villa

Love Island newbie Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu looked unrecognisable whilst appearing in a budget reality show at university.

The Turkish-born actress made her debut on the ITV2 reality series on Wednesday evening (June 8), as she entered the villa alongside fellow bombshell Afia Tonkmor.

But it appears her stint in the famous villa isn't the first reality show for Ekin-Su.

Ahead of her date with Liam Llewellyn tonight (June 9), the 27-year-old actress previously appeared in budget reality show Lancashore.

Ekin-Su took part in the film project during her first year at university.

Taking inspiration from Geordie Shore, it followed the lives of various male and female students in Preston.

In one scene, Ekin-Su is seen chatting to two female friends in their university halls while wearing a tight-fitted bandage dress.

A girl called Lauren says: "I think the boys will be coming down soon."

Ekin, who went by the name Suzie Hazel at the time, responds: "The boys? I've never met them. Who are they?"

Joanna, the third girl in the scene, tells her: "I think they live upstairs."

"Are they hot? Because I'm single, so," Ekin-Su adds.

Later in the pilot episode, the group are joined by three lads for a game of Never Have I Ever.

During the game, Ekin-Su reveals she fancies one of the boys and takes a swig from her drink.

"He's got banter. I quite like that. A guy's got to be funny and a guy's got to make a girl laugh," she later confesses to her friends.

"I think they're really down to earth guys. I like them all, you know?"

In last night's episode, Ekin-Su was seen arriving in the villa with bombshell Afia ahead of their date with Liam.

The public voted for the masters student to go on a date with the two beauty's following Davide Sanclimenti's decision to couple up with Gemma Owen.

Liam, 22, was initially partnered up with 19-year-old Gemma, who is the daughter of footballer Michael Owen, at the beginning of the new ITV2 series.

Meanwhile, ahead of her villa stint, Ekin-Su revealed she was looking for a "genuine spark" with someone who will accept her as the fun, bubbly person she is.

She told ITV bosses: "I'm looking for that real genuine spark and they just see me as me. I think the concept of the show brings back true and raw feelings.

"I'm looking for someone with intelligence, someone who can have good chats. Nothing like cockiness! I'm looking for a serious man and a serious relationship."

But will Welsh heartthrob Liam be the man for her?

Love Island continues on weekdays at 9pm on ITV2 or on the ITV Hub.
