Love Island’s Ekin-Su and Davide risk awkward run-in after split at Barbie premiere

Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Davide Sanclimenti were in close quarters for newly-split exes on Wednesday evening as they both hit the pink carpet at London's star-studded Barbie movie premiere.

The duo, who won the summer series Love Island last year, announced that they had decided to part ways on 29 June after 11 months together.

Appearing to brush off their heartache, both stars glammed up and posed for a slew of snaps at the premiere for the highly-anticipated new release – brushing shoulders with the likes of the movie's stars Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, as well as plenty of fellow Islanders.

Embracing the theme, Ekin-Su looked gorgeous in a pink bedazzled mini dress which clung to her figure and featured a bardot neckline with long sleeves.

Her brunette locks were styled in a brushed-out curl while hints of caramel highlights were painted through. She posed for a slew of solo snaps and also managed to get some with star of the film Margot – who has previously admitted to being a Love Island fan.

"Icons only Margot you are magic," wrote the Turkish actress. Meanwhile, appearing to steer clear of his ex-girlfriend was Davide, who also grabbed Margot for a snap separately.

The Italian hunk wrote: "I’m a Barbie man, in a Barbie world," while sharing a selfie with the blonde actress to Instagram. Bending from the pink theme, he opted for a powder blue suit while looking suave on the carpet.

It's no surprise that Love Island super fan Margot was happy to pose for snaps with Ekin-Su and Davide, as she last year gushed that they had 'made the series' while she watched.

“Paige [Thorne] has probably been my favourite — but for pure entertainment, I think Davide and Ekin-Su have made the season,” the Australian actress told The Sun at the time.

Margot went on: "Love Island reminds me of living in London — watching it with my girlfriends when everybody was home from work.”

The premiere comes after Davide announced his split from Ekin-Su via Instagram Stories.

Stressing he wished his former partner "nothing but the best", he penned: "@ekinsuofficial and I are no longer together. I am grateful for the memories and opportunities we shared together and I wish her nothing but the best.

"I would like for everybody to respect this decision during this difficult time, I will continue to support Ekin in any way possible."

Ekin-Su has yet to address the break-up publicly with sources telling The Sun the split "blindsided" her. The Turkish actress and model is normally very active on social media, sharing insight into her life with her 3.2 million Instagram followers.

Davide found himself in hot water last week following the split as he was caught on camera appearing snorting a substance on the back of his hand in photos published by The Sun, while at the popular Hï Ibiza nightclub.

Opening up about the moment in a statement shared on Instagram, the 28-year-old said: “You may have seen some stories about me over my trip in Ibiza. It was no secret that the last few weeks have been difficult for me.

“There was a speculation about my [behaviour] and a video which was questionable, however below the surface of this I did something that’s not nice to see and was not acting like myself.

“The true story is not what has been described from a couple of pictures. I found myself in awkward situations, in a vulnerable state."

He concluded the post: “All I can say now is that I want to move on and focus on my career, my wellbeing and my loved ones. I hugely appreciated the many supportive messages around me.”
