Love Island star Davide’s pals suspect the Italian hunk will make a play for Paige or Tasha after dumping Ekin-Su over secret kisses with Jay
Viewers saw Davide and Ekin-Su’s relationship crumble after she kissed bombshell Jay Younger, 28, twice in secret this week.
Davide, 27, was left raging and called it quits with Ekin-Su, also 27, as he confessed feeling ‘scared to be hurt from a woman like you’, and Davide’s pal Fabrizio Gulino is keen to see him pair up with Paige or Tasha, who he has previously kissed.
Moving on: Love Island star Davide Sanclimenti’s best pal hopes the Italian hunk will couple-up with either Paige Thorne or Tasha Ghouri after his explosive row with Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu
Earlier this week, viewers saw Ekin-Su crawl onto the villa’s terrace where she waited for Jay on two occasions before locking lips with the new arrival both times.
After learning of the trysts, Davide confronted Ekin-Su, saying: ‘You were not on the terrace, no? Liar.’
He continued: ‘This is the reason why I was not opening myself because I am scared to be hurt from a woman like you.
New romance? Davide’s pal Fabrizio Gulino is keen to see him pair up with Paige, 24, or Tasha, 23, who he has previously kissed
‘I hope you find the love of your life because me and you are closed.’
However, a defiant Ekin-Su told Paige, 24, and Gemma Owen, 19: ‘Jay walks in here and I felt great, I am going with my feelings, end of…
‘Let him moan. Yes, I kissed him [Jay], so what? He’s [Davide] not said I am his girlfriend, technically it’s not cheating.’
She means business! Earlier this week, Ekin-Su was seen crawling across the terrace for a sneaky link with bombshell Jay Younger, 28
Sneaky kisses: During Thursday’s episode, Ekin-Su and Jay were seen heading to the terrace on two separate occasions to enjoy a covert snog-filled meet-up
And, while he says Davide will need to make himself more vulnerable to find the right girl, Fabrizio is glad Davide’s relationship with Ekin-Su is over so he can move on.
Fabrizio told the Mirror: ‘At first I thought Davide and Ekin-Su were the perfect match – he loves a fiery girl. I expected Davide not to jump straight in as he’s always been cautious with girls.
‘Ekin-Su had the right to kiss Jay, but she should have been clear with Davide and broken up with him as soon as she felt something for Jay.
‘You’re a liar and an actress!’ In tense scenes Davide, 27, confronted Ekin-Su, also 27, about her behaviour, calling off their romance
‘Now Davide needs to move on and I hope someone new comes in for him. Paige or Tasha would be an interesting match for Davide.’
He added: ‘I’ve known Davide for years… I know what he’s like. Underneath that sculpted body there’s a lovely, very interesting man.’
Paige is currently coupled-up with Gemma’s ex Jacques O’Neill, 23, while Tasha, 23, has formed a union with Andrew Le Page, 27.
However, Paige appeared to side with Ekin-Su after Davide became enraged by Ekin-Su’s actions, with Paige saying on Friday: ‘No man talks to a girl like that and especially no man does it in front of a crowd like that.’
The confrontation between Davide and Ekin-Su escalated when she challenged Davide, saying: ‘Go on, do you wanna show off even more? In front of the boys, Mr Perfect Body? Go on!’
Davide retorted: ‘I’m just in shock. Stop.’
But Ekin-Su continued her defence, adding: ‘Did I hurt your ego? I’m telling you that you are a liar…You don’t care about me.’
‘Now I don’t give a s*** about you,’ Davide responded hotly. ‘Don’t worry.’
‘Good luck’: A first look teaser clip on the dating show’s Twitter account also showed Davide claiming that Ekin-Su will receive ‘an Oscar’ and telling Jay ‘good luck, bro’
He concluded by claiming he no longer cares for Ekin-Su because he came into the villa to find something ‘real’.
Davide also told Ekin-Su: ‘What are you expecting, four days, that I marry you?’
He then yelled: ‘You are a liar, actress, go the f*** out.’
Confiding in the girls following the spat, Ekin-Su turned tearful and said: ‘I feel awful. All I’ve done is go with my feelings.’
The likes of Andrew, Luca and Jacques couldn’t work out why she didn’t tell Davide the truth from the get-go and didn’t hesitate to pull her on the lies.
And Indiyah took to the beach hut to give her take on Ekin-Su’s crying: ‘Are you crying because you’re upset or because you got caught out?’
In the beach hut, Davide said: ‘I’m happy because I opened my eyes,’ before telling Ekin-Su, who tried to pull him again to chat: ‘I have nothing to say.’
The following day, Ekin-Su asked Jay whether he would get to know anyone else. When the same question was posed to her, she said no.
Jacques said in jest: ‘Don’t start lying to him, you told enough lies to Davide! You not see what happened last night?’

It comes as a Love Island boy was reportedly left stunned after he was dumped in a shock twist following bombshell Danica Taylor’s entry to the villa this week.
The Islander is said to have already left the show’s compound with his name yet to be revealed, according to The Sun.
Gripping scenes will air during Sunday night’s episode, showing Danica, 21, choose who she wants to couple up with on the ITV2 programme.
Pick me: (L-R) Dami Hope, Luca Bish, Davide Sanclimente, Ikenna Ekwonna, Remi Lambert, Jay Younger, Jacques O’Neill, Andrew Le Page lined up in front of Danica ahead of the recoupling
It is claimed many of the cast were left reeling by Danica’s choice as she had just hours to get to know the boys before picking who she would couple up with.
Dami Hope, Luca Bish, Davide Sanclimente, Ikenna Ekwonna, Remi Lambert, Jay Younger, Jacques O’Neill, Andrew Le Page lined up in front of Danica, with the newcomer choosing one of the boys to her partner.
ITV has not revealed who has departed or how they left but Friday night’s episode ended with a cliffhanger as Danica was seen in the moments before making her choice.
MailOnline has contacted a representative for Love Island for comment.
Cheeky: Danica, who said she would be ‘dancing’ on toes instead of stepping on them, made her surprise arrival during the sex-sea challenge, before greeting the Islanders back at the villa
During Friday’s episode, after the Islanders gathered around the firepit following news of the impromptu recoupling – this time in the hands of the girls – dancer Danica told them she had ‘to go with heart’, despite not even being in the villa 24 hours.
Much to the frustration of loyal ITV2 viewers, the episode went to credits just as the Leicester-born budding reality star was about to name her choice in a recoupling that will see one islander leave.
