Love Island star admits they’re glad Ekin-Su was axed from Dancing on Ice

Former Love Island star Davide Sanclimenti has explained that he's "glad" girlfriend and fellow winner Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu was booted off ITV Dancing on Ice.

The 28-year-old told the Daily Star exclusively that now she's no longer skating in the competition, the pair can take some much needed alone time together, after being non-stop since winning the ITV dating show.

"I could see she was getting emotional, she wasn't going to training relaxed," Davide explained. "I've always said the main reason for doing the show is so that you'll enjoy it and you can't forget that it's a reality show."

He added: "I feel like she was getting too emotionally involved and now that she's out she can spend time to herself, even since coming out of the villa we haven't had much time to ourselves."

"I felt like I was a part of Dancing on Ice as well so even a part of me is glad that it's done and now we can look forward to new things," Davide concluded.

The Love Island bombshell who's been dubbed the Italian Stallion has been vocally supportive of Ekin-Su since it was announced that she'd be appearing on the prestigious ice-skating competition. He also admitted that he wasn't expecting her to be eliminated so early into it.

Davide told us: "I didn't expect it, I saw her progressing week on week and I know how much training she was doing and how much effort she was putting into it."

"I don't think it's fair to see her out on the fourth week," he confessed.

Ekin-Su opened up about being kicked off the show after the judges voted to save former EastEnders star Patsy Palmer in the skate-off.

"Yes I cried and I was upset, you know I'm human. I think that programme I always thought when I was in Love Island, all the people and viewers expected me to be strong all the time but it's not like that. I cared and that's why I cried," she told fellow islander Joe Garratt during their Reddit chat show.
