Ekin-Su is the latest Love Island star to be linked to a famous face, following in the footsteps of Gemma Owen and her football star dad, Summer Botwe and her grime artist dad, and Jack Keating and his Boyzone connection.
While she's grafting Davide in the villa, Ekin's social media handlers revealed to fans that the 27-year-old actress has a celebrity connection.
Watch their TikTok video here:
Ekin-Su's friends and family are running her social media accounts across TikTok and Instagram while she's away from her phone in the villa, working to boost her follower count, keep her safe through public votes, and teach fans more about the reality star.
In a recent post on her TikTok account, Ekin's family answered a fan comment that asked for a 'fact about Ekin that no one knows'.
Sharing a short video of the Turkish soap opera actress, they spilled: "She's related to a rapper... any guesses?"
Guesses from fans included Eminem, 50 Cent, Tupac, and Nicki Minaj, but they weren't even close.
Another follower was even further off when they commented: "Me thinking you meant a sweet wrapper so I said to myself Turkish Delights."
After a wave of guesses flooded the comment section, Ekin-Su's handlers eventually revealed that she was related to none other than Oakley Neil H T Caesar-Su - aka Central Cee.
The London-based rapper is best known for hit singles like 'Loading', 'Commitment Issues', and most recently 'Doja'.
Love Island fans were shocked by the unexpected reveal, but some couldn't help but wonder how exactly the two stars could be related.
"NO WAYYY CENTRAL CEE????" wrote one user.
"I was thinking Central Cee before I even opened the comments" penned a second.
Confused as to how the Turkish beauty might be related to Central Cee, a third pointed out: "But Central Cee isn’t Turkish??"
"I swear Ekin-Su is Turkish and he's mixed Guyanese & Irish though?" added another baffled TikToker.
However, it looks like Ekin might have her own Irish heritage, too, which could explain her connection to Central Cee after all.
When she was just 18 years old, Ekin competed in the 2011 Miss Asia Pacific World pageant, representing Ireland.
Although she was born in the UK and spent her childhood living between Essex and Istanbul, Ekin listed her hometown as Dublin during the competition, so the reality star must have a connection to the Emerald Isle!
Love Island continues at 9pm tonight on ITV2 and ITVHub.
