Love Island bombshell Ekin-Su had passionate fling with Towie's James Lock before he hooked up with Megan Barton-Hanson | The Sun

LOVE Island bombshell Ekin-Su Culculoglu had a secret fling with Towie star James Lock.

The 27-year-old Turkish actress dated James, 35, before he hooked up with 2018 Love Island hopeful Megan Barton-Hanson last October.


A source said: “They met through friends and dated for a short time last year.

"It was a very passionate fling while it lasted but fizzled out.

"That was when James moved on to Megan.”

Ekin-Su stirred up trouble in the ITV2 villa this week when she sneaked off for secret kisses with Jay Younger while coupled up with Davide Sanclimenti.

But her mum Sezer defended her last night, insisting she is proud of her daughter for “doing what she feels”.

She said: “I think Ekin-Su was probably upset that Davide didn’t show her interest and felt rejected by him.

"She is looking for a real man who will support her.

She added: “I don’t read a lot of the reactions because I know my daughter, but she is stealing the show.
