Love Island’s Ekin-Su says she ate her lunch alone in the toilet amid bullying

LOVE Island star Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu has opened up about the bullying hell that saw her forced to eat lunch in the toilet.

The former Turkish soap actress – who won the show with boyfriend Davide Sanclimenti – opened up about the torment she suffered as a child.

She explained to the Late Late Show: “At school I had a hard time, I was bullied. I was quite overweight, I had no friends.

“I used to eat my lunch in the toilet on my own. I’d lock myself away.

“I just felt like you know what, it doesn’t matter if I’ve got my friends. Naturally you just made friends who like you for you.”

Ekin-Su, 28, was speaking to Ryan Tubridy on Irish channel RTE One, when the questions turned serious.

He said: “People can get quite serious about Love Island and talk about misogyny and bullying.

“Do you listen to that and take that seriously and say there is that element of it and I’d like to address it or do you say you’re reading too much into what was a bit of fun?”

She replied: “There’s always going to be bullying in life. There’s bullying at work, there’s bullying at school, there’s bullying on the street.

“People just projecting themselves on to you. The best thing you can do is just be confident, give it a smile and just know who you are be authentic.

“Don’t be bothered about these bullies, you know.”

Ekin-Su has lived a jet-set lifestyle since coming out of the Love Island villa and bagging a mega-money modelling deal.

She flew from the show’s Majorca base to London and Manchester – where Davide lives – before flying out to America.

The star was greeted when she returned to London by her brother, before jetting to Dublin to appear on Irish telly.

Ekin and Davide are doing a much-hyped interview with Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby on This Morning on Monday.
