During their trip away, the couple enjoy a Turkish bath and learn family recipes with Ekin-Su’s grandmother as they were driven around in a car by Davide.

Speaking on the experience, Davide said: ‘Well I loved the Turkish bath experience. It is really warm in there and you have a massage after. 

‘I felt relaxed after it and I would recommend it to everyone. We also had a lovely romantic dinner in Italy and it reminded us of our last date in the Love Island Villa with the candles and lovely lights.

Ekin-Su said: ‘Yes, I also really loved that date! I would suggest going to the countryside in Italy. I fell in love with Davide’s hometown because I want to live in the countryside one day, it would be so relaxing. I would love to grow my own fruit and vegetables. I would have my own wine bar as well.’

Ekin-Su and Davide look as loved-up as they did in the villa as they head to Verona,  Italy, where they visited Juliette’s balcony from the tragic Shakespeare play.

They also go on a candlelit date during one episode, which they admitted reminded them of their final date in the Love Island villa.

The first look images reveal that Ekin-Su and Davide caught up with her brother Arda, her grandmother and Davide’s grandparents.

Discussing the experience they had, Ekin-Su revealed: ‘I was really excited to meet all of Davide’s family as well as explore and learn more about Davide’s culture. 

‘I was so excited to go on the road trip because we talked about it in the Villa and it is surreal it has actually happened! I was also really looking forward to Davide driving us around.’

Meanwhile, Davide reflected: ‘I was looking forward to meeting Ekin’s parents and all of her family in Turkey and also looking forward to her meeting my family in Italy.

‘I always said in the Villa that I am looking forward to bringing Ekin-Su to Italy so I was just so excited to finally bring her to my country, show her around and take her to eat some good Italian food. We had such a good time together.

They were also asked how it felt to return home with the other by their side for the first time.

Davide said: ‘It was surreal at the beginning because I didn’t expect to go into the Villa and then fall in love and bring the person that I love to my hometown. 

‘But at the same time, I was so excited and really enjoyed all of those special moments. I will cherish them.’

Ekin-Su admitted she had her own ‘pinch me’ moments, and said: ‘It felt too good to be true, I kept thinking how are you here in Turkey with my grandma? It was honestly amazing.’

However despite the new dynamic, Ekin-Su admitted she didn’t feel nervous or ‘out of her comfort zone’ at any point on the trip. 

She said: ‘I didn’t feel out of my comfort zone at all. I was very excited the whole way on both trips. There was something new and exciting to look forward to everyday. Davide planned some amazing surprises for us both.’

Davide added: ‘Ekin thought camping may be out of my comfort zone. I went camping when I was younger and so did Ekin and when we were camping together, we realised we both love it. 

‘I love that Ekin enjoys the simple things and the outdoors, that is really nice.’

Ekin-Su quipped: ‘Yes, I didn’t know what Davide’s expectations were going to be at first and I wasn’t sure if he would enjoy camping. 

‘We heard there were bears and pigs nearby us! I kept saying babe we are going to go into a caravan and stay on a campsite. How exciting!’

They even tried to learn each other’s languages, as Ekin-Su admitted she kept saying ‘Ciao Bella’ to everyone while in Italy.

During the series, they venture on a eight-hour road trip in a campervan to Ekin-Su’s family village of Odemis.

Ekin-Su said: ‘They do say roadtrips bring you closer together and when we were in the campervan, I was so grateful to Davide for driving us around the whole time. 

‘It was really nice. We had so many amazing conversations whilst we were driving around. We were also singing a lot and we played a few games of eye spy. We just had so much fun mucking around!’

Cheers! The couple enjoyed plenty of good food from both countries

When asked if they had advice for people who haven’t ever been in a campervan,  Ekin-Su said: ‘Bring lots of food and make sure you have an amazing playlist. Music is important. Also make sure you have enough petrol!

Davide added: ‘Yes, we love music. A good playlist is essential.’

Discussing their nerves ahead of meeting their in-laws, Ekin-Su said: ‘I wasn’t really. I was a bit nervous to meet Davide’s dad as I hadn’t met him yet but I loved his dad.

‘I’d already met his mum and his sister and before I went to Italy, I was always speaking to his mum and sister on WhatsApp.

Davide insisted: ‘I wasn’t really nervous. I really loved Ekin’s grandma because we got along so well especially when we cooked together. My mum said that Ekin was a really good cook when they cooked together.’

Ekin Su & Davide Homecomings airs on ITV2 at 9pm on Monday 28th November and Tuesday 29th November 2022.
