Celebrity Big Brother’s Ekin-Su breaks silence after skipping final and taking social media break

Celebrity Big Brother’s Ekin-Su breaks silence after skipping final and taking social media break

She thanked fans for their kindness

Celebrity Big Brother's Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu has finally returned to social media after her exit from the reality show last month.

Her post-exit interview with CBB hosts AJ Odudu and Will Best was pretty tense as Ekin-Su called fellow housemate Marisha Wallace 'fake' for voting for her and also appeared to allege that the show's producers had 'cut stuff out', claiming: "You haven't seen everything; they've cut stuff out.

"I'm just hurt that I wasn't portrayed as myself on the show."

Host AJ retorted: “It's interesting because you've literally just walked out of the house!

“You don't know what's been seen, what's been said. But I can assure you that everything that has been seen and has been said, has been said by you!"

The 29-year-old's exit came on the back of an explosive argument with Edwards, causing Ekin-Su to storm off as Edward followed her to apologise.

Following her departure from the show, it was claimed that Ekin-Su had pulled out of her appearance on Lorraine.

Ekin-Su's exit interview from CBB had some bombshell allegations.

Host Lorraine Kelly said: "She [Ekin-Su] was due to come in but no.

“We're trying to find out. She was not happy, sometimes you think it's put on but she was genuinely not pleased at all."

Lorraine then apologised, making a statement on the show’s official Instagram account on 19 March that the Love Island star didn't 'pull out' of the show, saying: "We’d like to clear up a misunderstanding, Ekin-Su did not pull out of the show or throw the programme into chaos this morning.

"We’d love to welcome her back on the programme soon. We apologise for the confusion."

It was also reported that the star was also not making an appearance in the CBB final, which she later clarified in an Instagram Story that it was the 'right decision' for her and that she was 'fully aware' that not many would 'understand her absence'.

Since then, Ekin-Su has remained tight-lipped and avoided the spotlight - until today.

Ekin-Su has thanked fans for their kindness.

On Monday 1(April), she posted a series of photos enjoying nature and relaxing at home.

She wrote: “Just a little message to say hi. Thank you once more for all your kindness.

“Took some time off to reflect, recharge and restore which i’m still very much doing but I’ll need to be back online for work purposes especially.

"Thanks to the brands who I work with who have respected my boundaries and shown compassion and love during the past year.

“Haven’t felt myself for a long time, and I’ve realised I had kind of lost myself and for a while didn’t know who I was beyond being defined by ex relationships or TV shows, and that needs to change!

"I am so excited for all the growth and full healing.

"CBB was the final lightbulb moment to make me realise what needs to be done.

“Embracing the fresh start to a new month and new era…. Wishing everyone an April full of possibilities.

"I am so grateful for each one of you.”
