Davide Sanclimenti infamously branded Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu "an actress and a liar," but following their Love Island win, an expert has told OK! how it's easy to see that the Turkish star's feelings are totally real.
The couple, both 27, were crowned winners of the 2022 series in Monday night's live finale and it's since been revealed that their win was a landslide, as they received over 60% of the votes.
Speaking following the final episode, body language expert Inbaal Hongiman has decoded the winners' actions, revealing how everything from the way they stood to their hand movements suggest it really is true love.
Inbaal told OK!: "Standing on that stage as the voting closes, Davide's hand is in his pocket. He is quietly confident, not necessarily of his win, but that he made the right choice in life, to come on the show."
“Ekin-Su is nestled under his arm, their fingers interlocking," Inbaal continued. "Their feelings for each other are genuine, and neither of them regrets a thing, even before the results are called.
"Their joint interview really showcases their feelings – with Ekin-Su leading each answer, talking with her hands, using facial expressions and ribbing Davide, in a way that cannot be fake. When lying, people keep their bodies closer and tighter, in full control, worried that they might get a detail wrong.
“When expressing her true feelings, Ekin-Su is full of movement, and every word is punctuated by a matching movement.
“Davide has one hand on her waist, his other on her hand, which in turn is resting on his knee. Their physical closeness is a reflection of their emotional closeness.”
Ekin-Su and Davide have undeniably been the stars of the eighth season of Love Island, with memorable moments including the Italian stallion’s iconic one-liners and Ekin-Su’s theatrics on the villa terrace with bombshell Jay Younger.
It has sometimes been rocky between the pair, but viewers went on to fall in love with the couple as they went from strength to strength – with Davide and Ekin-Su going exclusive following a sweet gesture.
The 27 year old, who’s known for his fantastic cooking skills, made a tiramisu for Ekin-Su and penned the question to the actress in chocolate sauce, writing: “Are you mine?”
Adding to the sweetness of his gesture, he asked Ekin-Su in the same spot they had their first kiss.
While many of this year’s finalists were original members of this year’s line-up, both Ekin-Su and Davide came in as separate bombshells.
