Love Islands Ekin-Su secret connection to Good Morning Britain stars exposed

Love Island star Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu shares a secret family tie to Good Morning Britain as Richard Arnold shares snippet of acting debut of Turkish reality show.

During Wednesday’s (June 15) instalment of the popular ITV breakfast show, Susanna Reid and Richard Madeley welcomed the 52-year-old entertainment reporter onto the show to discuss the latest developments on the gripping dating show.

On the show, ITV bosses shared the soap opera star in action with a clip of her on the beloved Turkish show Kuzey Yoldizi which Susanna Reid was quick to share the similarities between the TV show and Love Island.

After watching the brunette beauty, 27, in action, Richard revealed how the video was translated by none other than Ekin-Su's cousin who works behind-the-scenes on the ITV show.

Much to the surprise of Love Island superfan Susanna Reid and Richard Madeley – they gawped at the inside gossip as the entertainment reporter shared the news on the show.

Richard revealed: “We had that translated by one of our colleagues who turns out to be Ekin-Su's cousin – Ekin-Su's cousin, it’s a family affair here on Good Morning Britain. I smell BAFTA.”

But this isn't the first show the TV star has been tied to after she previously appeared in a budget reality show titled Lancashore which she took part in during her first year in university.

Taking inspiration from Geordie Shore, it followed the lives of various male and female students in the heart of Preston, and it's fair to say the star looked worlds away from her ITV2 debut.

It comes after he explained how the tides may be changing for actress and her current partner Davide Sanclimenti as she eyes up new bombshell Jay Younger.

After the TV hunk entered the villa alongside Manchester model Remi Lambert, Ekin-Su confessed to Gemma Owen how Jay was her type on paper.

She told the 19-year-old: "The tall one that's 28, he's so cute."

"The one in the black top?" Gemma asked.

To which she replied: "Yeah I really like him, I'm getting to know him, I don't give a f**k!"
