Tensions soared in the Love Island villa as bombshell Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu made a dramatic entrance on Thursday’s episode.

The Essex actress, 27, arrived alongside fellow newcomer Afia Tonkmor, 24, and immediately made an impression on the boys with her beauty. 

However, she didn’t have much luck with the girls after proclaiming she was not in the villa to make friends and then told 19-year-old Gemma Owen she could be like her big sister.  

Awkward: Tensions soared in the Love Island villa as bombshell Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu made a dramatic entrance on Thursday’s episode and irritated Gemma Owen (pictured)

Chatting with the girls around the firepit, Ekin-Su announced: ‘I’m sorry I’m not here to make seasonal girlfriends, I’m here to make the love of my life.’

Gemma was seen smirking at the remark before Ekin-Su learned she was only 19, prompting her to say: ‘You could be my little sister that I could protect.’

Unimpressed, Gemma said in the beach hut: ‘I’m sure she didn’t mean it in a b****y way but I felt like it was a bit patronising. I was a bit like, ugh.’

Later, speaking in the bedroom to the other girls, Gemma added: ‘That comment pissed me off. “I’m gonna go for what I want.” Yeah b***h, same.’

Confident: Ekin-Su (right) didn’t have much luck with the girls after proclaiming she was not in the villa to make friends and then told 19-year-old Gemma Owen she could be like her big sister

Unimpressed: Gemma was seen smirking at the remark before Ekin-Su learned she was only 19, prompting her to say: ‘You could be my little sister that I could protect’ 

Not mincing words: Speaking about Ekin-Su in the bedroom, Gemma said: ‘If you say another patronising comment you can shove it right up your a**’

The girls spoke about Ekin-Su again the following morning in the bedroom, with Amber Beckford saying: ‘I’m still happy to get to know them, I’m not going to be bitchy but…’

Gemma agreed, saying: ‘Yeah and me, if you say another patronising comment you can shove it right up your a**.’

Afia and Ekin-Su walked into the bedroom moments later, with the actress saying to the girls: ‘Don’t b***h too much about me… I’m just joking.’

Chatting in the garden, Afia said to Ekin-Su: ‘I don’t think a 19-year-old is your competition.’

Ekin-Su, who wasn’t shy about admitting she liked Davide Sanclimenti, said of him and Gemma: ‘It’s a very dry couple. Where are the amore kisses? Where’s the “good morning baby?” I am so excited for today.’

Tension: Chatting in the garden, Afia said to Ekin-Su: ‘I don’t think a 19 year old is your competition’ 

Along with Gemma, Ekin-Su also left Paige Thorne unimpressed after she commented on her relationship with Luca Bish.

Sitting with the girls in the garden, Paige said: ‘Things have been going well with Luca.’

Ekin-Su asked: ‘Do you guys cuddle a lot?’ to which Paige replied: ‘Yeah, footises.’

Ekin-Su said: ‘I didn’t see you guys cuddling last night.’

When she got up and left the group, Paige said to the other girls: ‘What is she, keeping tabs on how many times he touches me during the night? Weird.’ 

Remark: Along with Gemma, Ekin-Su also left Paige unimpressed after she commented on her relationship with Luca, saying she hasn’t noticed them cuddling much

‘Weird’: When she got up and left the group, Paige said to the other girls: ‘What is she, keeping tabs on how many times he touches me during the night? Weird’

Later, Davide and Gemma had a chat about their eight-year age difference, with both insisting it didn’t bother them.

Davide said: ‘I’m much older than you, you’re not bothered about it.’

Gemma replied: ‘No it’s not an issue for me at all. I’ve been seeing guys…’

‘Much older than you,’ Davide said. 

‘Yeah, it’s very normal for me. For you, is it an issue?’ she asked.

‘No it’s not an issue about age,’ he said. ‘I say sometimes you are probably more mature than age.’

Workout: Ekin-Su, who wasn’t shy about admitting she liked Davide, said of him and Gemma: ‘It’s a very dry couple. Where are the amore kisses? Where’s the good morning baby? I am so excited for today’ 

In the evening, things got awkward as the islanders played a game of beer pong where they had to complete a series of dares.

Tasha Ghouri was left unimpressed when Paige kissed Andrew Le Page – who Tasha is coupled up with – in answer to the dare: ‘kiss the boy who you think is boyfriend material’.

Andrew returned the favour moments later when he locked lips with Paige, selecting her as the girl he thought was ‘wifey material’. 

Speaking to Gemma and Dami Hope after, Tasha said: ‘It wasn’t nice to see at all… It opened a lot of eyes for me. No one told Andrew to say Paige was wifey material.’ 

Raunchy: Elsewhere, the Islanders gather to play a game of beer pong where Andrew kissed Paige after being dared to smooch the girl he believes is ‘wifey material’ 

Not happy: Tasha Ghouri was left unimpressed when Paige kissed Andrew – who Tasha is coupled up with

Tasha said: ‘It opened a lot of eyes for me. No one told Andrew to say Paige was wifey material’

After the game, Luca pulled Gemma for a chat and the pair went up to the terrace together for some privacy. 

Gemma confessed: ‘I am attracted to you, I definitely would want to get to know you.’ 

Luca said: ‘You stare into my eyes and I just want to stare into yours!’

Davide was clearly unimpressed with the pair’s terrace chat as he told the other boys he was not happy Luca didn’t have ‘the balls’ to tell him he liked Gemma.

Davide said: ‘I don’t have nothing with Gemma now if Luca doesn’t have the balls to tell me.’

Offering advice, Ikenna Ekwonna suggested: ‘I think probably just grab Luca quickly for a chat.’

Andrew agreed, saying: ‘Say your piece.’

Davide said: ‘I already knew but you didn’t have the balls to come and tell me in the face. I need to ask Gemma what has been going on. Then I will go with him.’

Crush: After the game, Luca pulled Gemma for a chat and the pair went up to the terrace together for some privacy and told him: ‘I’m attracted to you’

Luca said: ‘You stare into my eyes and I just want to stare into yours!’

Fuming: Davide was clearly unimpressed with the pair’s terrace chat as he told the other boys he was not happy Luca didn’t have ‘the balls’ to tell him he liked Gemma

The show kicked off with Liam Llewellyn’s double date with newcomers Ekin-Su and Akin.

Speaking in the Beach Hut after being chosen, Liam said: ‘It’s a massive booster, definitely what I needed, I am buzzing now, I can’t wait to meet the girls.’

Afia and Ekin-Su awaited Liam’s arrival in the candle-lit courtyard and first up was Afia.

Liam was quick to compliment the new arrival, saying: ‘I like your vibe, you’re just a laugh, a bubbly, outgoing girl and that’s exactly what I want.’

Date night: Liam was chosen by the public to go on dates with newcomers Afia Tonkmor and Ekin-Su

Afia asked: ‘Would you say I am your type?’

Liam said: ‘You’re definitely my type, 100%.’

Afia replied: ‘You’re not my usual type but you’re very pretty. I do like talking to you. I think you’re really nice.’ 

Up next was Ekin-Su, with the flirtation there from the offset as she said: ‘You’ve got really nice eyes, the colour of the sea, almost like you can kind of swim in it and get lost.’

Liam playfully asked: ‘Are you getting a bit lost?’

Ekin-Su said: ‘Maybe I am,’ before adding: ‘Your eyes are just hypnotising me, I love blue eyes.’
