Love Island’s Ekin-Su and Davide spark reunion rumours after intimate birthday meal

Love Island's Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Davide Sanclimenti have sparked rumours that they have rekindled their romance after enjoying a birthday meal together.

Davide shared an Instagram Story yesterday (August 21) of him having dinner with Ekin-Su during a trip to Bodrum, Turkey.

The former couple, who confirmed their break-up in June, reunited this week to celebrate Ekin-Su's birthday, with Davide's story paying tribute to his ex-girlfriend on the big day.

"Despite all the storms, I wanted to make this day special for you," read the Story caption, shared alongside a photo of Ekin-Su holding a glass of champagne and posing with a chocolate cake.

"Enjoy the moment, make a wish and blow hard," the caption continued, concluding: "Happy birthday @ekinsuofficial".

Ekin-Su shared the tribute on her own Instagram Stories with a sweet response. "Surprising me like always, thank you for a good birthday," she wrote.

It appears Ekin-Su and Davide were the only two present at the dinner. In an earlier Story post, Davide shared a photo of him sat in the opposite dining chair with the caption, "Dinner time".

It certainly suggests that the two are on good terms following their recent split. It was Davide who confirmed their break-up in June via a statement on Instagram.

The reality TV star said he was "grateful for the memories and opportunities" the two shared together, and promised to "continue to support Ekin [in] any way possible".

Ekin-Su remained quiet on the split until last week, when she finally addressed the couple's relationship after "misleading" news reports.

"There’s been a lot of speculation over the status of myself and Davide’s relationship in recent weeks," she wrote in a statement, shared to her Instagram Stories.

"Usually these headlines are misleading. I wasn’t taking a 'swipe' at Davide like a recent article stated. Despite the narratives, @davidesancli and I are on good terms, we both care about each other and I think everyone should respect that."

Ekin-Su and Davide matched in 2022's summer edition of Love Island. The two proved popular with viewers, winning last year's finale with 63.69% of the public vote over runners-up Gemma Owen and Luca Bish.

Following their stint on the show, they bagged an ITV spin-off series called Ekin-Su & Davide: Homecomings, where they visited one another's home countries of Turkey and Italy.

Ekin-Su appeared on Dancing on Ice this year and was supported by Davide throughout her skating experience.

Davide presented Ekin-Su with a promise ring in February, sparking engagement rumours with the couple.

Their last public appearance as a couple was at the European Premiere of Transformers: Rise of the Beasts in London's Leicester Square.
