Love Island fans go crazy for fiery Ekin-Su… branding her the next Maura Higgins
On Thursday night’s episode of Love Island, we saw bombshells Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Afia Tonkmor ramp up fire in the villa.
And 27-year-old Ekin-Su caused quite the stir when she got the boys warm under their collars — with Love Island fans taking to social media to show their delight at the unfolding drama.
Viewers even compared the beauty to season five’s Maura Higgins, who had an unforgettable dramatic impact on the villa as she walked in like a bombshell.
fiery! Love Island fans went nuts for Ekin-Su when she stepped up the drama on Thursday’s episode and entered the villa like a bomb
Ekin-Su made a confident entrance, showing that she has no loyalty to the girls in the villa. Ekin-Su arrived with all weapons at the ready and set her eyes on Davide Sanclimenti, Luca Bish and Andrew Le Page.
And fans were here for the drama, as one tweeted, “Now this is what you call a bombshell.”
Others admitted it was ‘what the villa needed’ as some were overjoyed to watch the new arrival get under Gemma Owen’s skin as she moved in with Davide.

After stating she wasn’t at the villa making friends, Ekin-Su then told Gemma she could be her big sister – leaving the latter less than impressed by the condescending comment.
Unimpressed, Gemma said in the beach hut, “I’m sure she didn’t mean it that way, but I found it a bit patronizing. I was kind of like, ugh.’
Later, as she spoke to the other girls in the bedroom, Gemma added, “That comment pissed me off. “I go for what I want.” Damn, same thing.’
Speaking: Fans took to Twitter to show their love for the drama, which involved former islanders Chloe Burrows and Shaughna Phillips
And as fans flared up the season’s first drama, former islanders even sprang into action, as Chloe Burrows wrote last season: “Who found Ekin-Su needs a raise, this is immersive TV.”
While season six’s Shaughna Phillips described the bomb as a “weapon,” he wrote, “Ekin-Su is not a bomb. She’s a weapon of mass destruction right now because all I see is a massacre. I love her’.
Many viewers also compared the new arrival to Maura, who was known for her fiery antics on the show as she walked in and wrinkled the feathers of her fellow islanders.

Profit: And Ekin-Su wasted no time either, as she got a joint training with Davide Sanclimenti
One fan wrote, “Ekin-Su gives the chaos we haven’t seen since Maura Higgins,” while another said, “She gives Maura vibes.”
Ekin-Su, an Essex actress, wasted no time making her move on Thursday’s episode, hopping for Italian hunk Davide as the pair enjoyed a workout together.
But it wasn’t just Davide on her radar, she also had her sights set on Luca, challenging Paige Thorne as she commented on their relationship.

Sitting with the girls in the yard, Paige said, “Luca is fine.”
Ekin-Su asked, “Do you cuddle a lot?” to which Paige replied, “Yeah, footises.”
Ekin-Su said, “I didn’t see you hugging last night.”
When she got up and left the group, Paige said to the other girls, ‘What is she, does she keep track of how many times he touches me at night? Foreign.’
Don’t mince words: Speaking of Ekin-Su in the bedroom, Gemma said, “If you say one more patronizing comment, you can shove it right up your ass.”
