Love Island’s Ekin-Su CÃ¼lcÃ¼loÄlu dated more than one famous face before she joined the popular dating show.
The 27-year-old entered the villa as a bombshell earlier this month, and has been caught up in plenty of drama ever since.
Following reports she enjoyed a brief romance with TOWIE star James Lock, the 27-year-old has now been linked to another reality star.
According to The Sun, the Turkish actress went on a string of dates withÂ former Made In Chelsea star Josh Patterson before she entered the villa.
A source told the outlet: “They went on a few dates and got on really well.”
“Josh has nothing but good things to say about Ekin-Su – but he’s a bit embarrassed that she’s suddenly everywhere.”
Josh appeared on Made In Chelsea between 2015 and 2018, and dated his co-star Binky Felstead.

The couple went on to welcome a daughter named India together, but the pair split one year after her birth.
The news comes after it was reported Ekin-Su had a “passionate” relationship with James Lock last year, before he was linked to Megan Barton Hanson.
The pair reportedly met through mutual friends, but their romance “fizzled out” after a short time.
An insider 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.”
