There's been plenty of rumours that Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu will replace Laura Whitmore as host of the Spanish villa!

Whitmore had been presenting the dating show since 2020, but made a shock decision to step down last month.

Of course, since then there's been plenty of rumour being spread out of who will take over the big role! And naturally, Ekin-Su has been one of the big names rumoured to be stepping up to the big role!



BUT! The Turkish reality star has now addressed those rumours claiming that she would "love" to step up as host of the series but feels she's not "ready" yet.

The Turkish actress recently landed a reality show with her co-star and boyfriend Davide Sanclimenti, and in an interview with Metro speaking on the rumours of hosting Love Island Ekin-Su said: “I would love to take her place but I don’t think I’m ready yet. I feel like I’ve got so much going on.”

Laura Whitmore addressed leaving the show last month by saying:

“Love Island is a show that I love to watch, and I always want to work on shows that I enjoy. But there’s nothing more that I can do with it. There are parameters.”

She continued “When you work on the show, you can’t really talk about certain things. But I’m really proud of what I did, and proud to leave on what I think has been a brilliant series, with great winners.”

Other big names have been tipped to take the role such as Chloe Burrows, Emily Atack and Maura Higgins!
