Just when you thought we’d probably seen the last of Ekin-Su and Davide lovingly bickering on Love Island over a tenderly made plate of carbonara, we now know — to the delight of fans everywhere — there’s going to be a travel show involving the self-proclaimed Italian Stallion and Turkish Delight. So, buckle up for the road-trip of a lifetime and learn everything there is to know about their upcoming show, Ekin-Su & Davide: Homecomings.
Ekin-Su & Davide: Homecomings Premise
Having announced the series on a newly revamped The Big Breakfast on Aug. 13, the Love Island winners will visit each other’s hometowns of Frosinone, Italy and Odemis, Turkey, in a two-part series. Whilst in both countries, they’ll experience the culture that each has to offer including a romantic trip to Verona and Istanbul, where Ekin-Su plans to have Davide meet her acting colleagues.
Whilst in Turkey, the pair will also embark on an eight-hour road trip which is sure to bring that Love Island drama back — especially since they’ll spend the night in a small camper van.
Currently based in Manchester, 27-year-old business owner Davide Sanclimenti is originally from Rome, while Turkish-British actor Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu splits her time between Essex and Istanbul.
Who Else Will Be In Ekin-Su & Davide: Homecomings?
As the couple will be visiting their hometowns, their families and friends will almost certainly be making an appearance in the series. Whilst in Italy, Ekin-Su will have the opportunity to bond even more with Davide’s mum Sezer as she teaches her how to make homemade Gnocchi. As Ekin-Su explained, “It’ll be all real, you know, fighting and I’ll be cooking for him, he’ll be cooking for me. It’ll be like two cultures…” “Meeting family,” Davide chipped in.
Ekin-Su & Davide: Homecomings Release Date
Sadly, there’s no release date yet but it’s “coming soon to ITV2” according to a press release from ITV.
