Ekin-Su said it happened during Casa Amor.

Love Island winner Ekin-Su Culculoglu revealed she suffered a panic attack during her time on Love Island.

The reality star said she found it incredibly difficult at one stage in Casa Amor. During an interview with Christine Lampard, Ekin-Su confirmed medics were called in to help her.

Ekin-Su explained that she was overcome with worry about her now boyfriend Davide Sanclimenti finding someone else during Casa Amor.

She told Christine Lampard, “In Casa Amor there was a moment obviously where, I don’t know if I [can] say this, when medics came where I was having a mini panic attack because I was thinking, ‘Oh no, what’s Davide doing in Casa Amor? Is he with someone else?”

The 27-year-old said the scenes weren’t aired, but it was a tough moment for her.

“And the medics were like, ‘Ekin it’s fine, just relax, what’s meant to be is going to be’. It all worked.”

Ekin-Su also spoke out about her mental health and how the show affected it during a Q&A on her Instagram.

The actress said, “I was loving life in the villa. Just growing as a person.

“I’d say you have to be mentally strong” Ekin added.

Ekin and Davide were crowned winners of Love Island 2022. The couple won 63.7% of the public vote.

Since the show ended, the couple has met one another’s loved ones. They’ll also be moving in together in Essex.
