Ekin-Su Cülcülolu and her partner, Davide Sanclimenti, had a romantic get away to Italy that went awry.
Davide and Ekin-Su have had a tumultuous year after meeting on the 2022 season of Love Island and being named the winning couple.
The couple has gone on to feature in reality television, travel television, and even moved in together.
After a few days on the sun-kissed island of Ibiza, the couple recently travelled to Davide’s native Italy, and what initially appeared to be a tranquil vacation soon took an unexpected turn.
Davide initially posted an Instagram photo of his fiancée assisting one of his family members in the kitchen with the caption ‘Se Magna’, which translates to ‘Let’s dine.’
A few hours later, however, he posted another photo to social media, this time of himself and Ekin in hospital donning blue medical masks, as Davide hugged the actress with his arm around her.
He wrote alongside the snap: ‘So, in hospitals in Italy it’s still required to wear the mask apparently.’
The celebrity did not reveal what prompted the duo, who appeared as beautiful as ever beneath the masks, to visit the hospital.
However, he returned to Instagram some time later, this time for a mirror selfie in which he appeared to be wearing bandages on his wrist.
Despite being bandaged up, Davide gave a small smile to the camera and captioned the photo with the word ‘Buena’; he was also able to grasp his phone in what appeared to be his injured hand.
Ekin and Davide had a notoriously difficult start to their relationship on Love Island, but by the middle of the series, things had calmed down.
Ekin-Su recently acknowledged that she had lost a great deal by participating in the competition, specifically her friendships.
The model told Cosmopolitan UK: ‘I’ve lost every friend I had,’ she said. ‘I don’t have any friends. I have one friend and that’s it.
‘Unfortunately, with the fame, you see people’s true colours. People just want to be your friend because of your status, and it’s a hard industry to trust. I don’t actually have friends left.’
The couple had confronted rumours of a breakup due to Davide’s alleged infidelity, but they swiftly put these rumours to rest by kissing in front of cameras during a night out.
