An insider close to Ekin-Su revealed: ‘Ekin has met with countless brands this week, but she knew that Oh Polly was the perfect fit for her, and the feeling was mutual.
‘She’s signed an enormous deal worth over a million and now she can’t wait to start collaborating with the brand and working on her first ever collection.

Despite a few setbacks, including Ekin crawling along the terrace floor to keep her kissing former Islander Jay Younger secret, the pair ended up saying te amo, love you in Italian, by the end of the series.
Sources have revealed to MailOnline that Davide has also been meeting multiple brands this week, as the couple are predicted to become one of the most successful winners in Love Island history.
