Love Island’s Ekin-Su Cülcüloğluin was thrilled on Saturday to find out her “child idol” Vanessa Hudgens was watching the ITV2 dating show.
American actress Vanessa, 33, shared a picture of her feet in the bathtub on her Instagram Stories as she lay back and relaxed while watching Love Island – specifically a scene with Ekin-Su, 28.
Ekin-Su, who was crowned the winner of this year’s series along with her boyfriend Davide Sanclimenti, was shocked to discover the social media snap.
The Turkish actress re-shared the post and wrote, “My childhood idol is watching the show!”.
Earlier this year, Vanessa said: “Love Island really got me hooked so I was there every step of the way.
“It’s just very interesting to see how people process things and how people recognize love.
“I’ll definitely tune in [on Monday]. I’m still here for it. I want to see everyone find love and see it get messy along the way.
Ekin-Su and Davide have been crowned the winners of Love Island 2022 and voting figures have shown that they received more than half of the public vote.
Viewers could vote for their favorite couple to be crowned the winners and walk away with the £50,000 cash prize – which for the first time wasn’t offered as a split-or-steal deal at all.
And the final voting figures released by ITV have revealed that fan favorites Ekin-Su and Davide, both 27, received a staggering 63.69 per cent of the public vote.
They won the ITV2 dating competition by a landslide as runners-up Gemma and Luca secured just 14.47 per cent of viewers’ final votes.
Gemma and Luca followed as runners-up, while Indiyah and Dami finished third and Tasha and Andrew fourth.
Ekin-Su signed a £1million deal with Oh Polly last month, making it the biggest partnership in Love Island history.
She told MailOnline she’s “living the dream” after leaving the Mallorcan villa for a flurry of exciting opportunities while posing for the brand in her latest photoshoot.
The Turkish beauty, who recently made her runway debut during New York Fashion Week, also gushed about her relationship with boyfriend Davide Sanclimenti after he flew to America to show his support.
Speaking of her latest work, Ekin-Su told MailOnline: “I’ve been living the American dream since I came out of the villa – being in New York for Fashion Week was really a dream come true.
“If you had told me six months ago that I would walk down a catwalk, I would never have believed you! I can’t wait to come back and show people what I’ve been working on.
“It’s also been a very special journey for our relationship as we finally get to do real boyfriend and girlfriend things, explore the city and have some alone time. Davide makes me so happy!’
