The drama between Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Gemma Owen had Love Island fans divided on Monday night as they took opposite sides – although almost all admired former soap actress Ekin-Su’s flair for drama.
The duo came to blows after Dami Hope had fun as a ‘mind reader’ with Gemma and told her that he felt there was ‘a small chance’ that maybe her head could maybe turn if someone entered the villa who was ‘100% you’ – and more her type than Luca Bish, who she’s been coupled up with since week one.
Gemma agreed with him, musing: ‘That was quite impressive. I don’t think you’re that far off.’
After microbiologist Dami told the Islanders who witnessed his party trick to keep the conversation to themselves – that is, not repeat it to anyone else – you can guess what happened next.
Off tripped chaos queen Ekin-Su to discuss what Dami had just told her not to with Paige Thorne and Jacques O’Neill, with the conversation whipping its way around the Islanders in next to no time and eventually making its way to fishmonger Luca.
International dressage rider Gemma than confronted Ekin-Su about what she had said, saying that she should ‘concentrate on her own dramas’ and that unless her relationship was ‘perfect’ she wasn’t here for her feedback.
‘Until then, keep your f**king nose out of it,’ she fumed, while also branding the 27-year-old’s actions ‘d*ckhead behaviour’.
Ekin-Su wasn’t here to take all the responsibility though, asking afterwards: ‘Why is it me again? All I did was explain what happened.’
‘It’s so easy to blame me in here, isn’t in?’ she added.
‘Whoever found Ekin-Su needs a raise,’ joked one fan about the conflict she set up.
Dumped islander Ikenna Ekwonna’s account – still run by his popular admin team – was also loving it, quipping: ‘The way Ekin-Su got up straight away, her mission was given to her, didn’t even say bye, she has to be an industry plant.’
Meanwhile fans were picking their sides.
‘Never thought I’d say this, but I’m with Gemma here,’ commented one, while another wrote: ‘I’m afraid Gemma is right with this one though.’
Another follower shared that Gemma was ‘low-key right’, but they were still finding the situation ‘so entertaining’.
‘Nah but did Ekin really lie though?’ argued another. ‘Gemma agreed her head could be turned, the rest is irrelevant.’
‘She is telling the truth that’s what Dami said and Gemma agreed I don’t see the problem… [sic]’ said one fan. With Luca’s faith in his relationship with Gemma shaken, despite her reassuring him that her feelings are still ‘exactly the same’ – although she didn’t seem keen on being his official girlfriend – is there trouble ahead for Lemma
Love Island continues tomorrow tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
