She may have won the nation’s heart on Love Island last year, but Ekin-Su Culculoglu has so far failed to impress on Dancing On Ice.
The 28-year-old star performed a steamy routine to Britney Spears’ Toxic last week, wearing a semi-sheer bodysuit with a sparkly sequin bikini in a cheeky nod to her islander days.
However, as well as landing ITV with complaints to Ofcom, Ekin-Su received the least votes and is now readying herself for the dreaded skate off – with a source revealing she's "putting on a brave face" ahead of a possible early exit from the competition.
A source told The Sun: “Ekin-Su has said she has no qualms about the routine, and is putting on a brave face in light of what’s happened this week.
“The general feeling among her family and friends is that she has ended up in this situation through absolutely no fault of her own."
ITV are yet to comment on the controversy surrounding Ekin-Su's performance, and the Ofcom complaints it sparked, though a spokesperson for the show has insisted: "[Ekin-Su] is really enjoying being part of the show and can’t wait to perform again this weekend.”
The Turkish actress's contender in the dance off is yet to be decided. There are five couples yet to perform live and Ekin-Su will go head-to-head against the star who receives the least votes this week.
Watching on in the audience will be her boyfriend and Love Island co-star, Davide Sanclimenti – who was visibly shocked by last week’s results.
The Italian businessman could be seen mouthing "WTF," unaware the cameras were on him.
Ekin-Su is believed to be one of the show's highest-paid contestants of all-time, pocketing an astounding £100,000 for her time on the show.
If she does leave this week, she'll still be entitled to the full amount.
