Love Island's Davide hints he's heading back into the villa following split from Ekin-Su

Love Island's Davide hints he's heading back into the villa following split from Ekin-Su

Davide and Ekin-Su announced their split just days after being pictured together

Former Love Island winner Davide Sanclimenti has hinted he could return to shake things up in the villa following his split from Ekin-Su.

Davide's potential return to the show would certainly be a dramatic love-life U-turn, because as far as fans are aware, Ekin-Su and Davide have only been split up for a matter of hours.

The couple seemed loved-up when they appeared at the movie premiere of Indiana Jones And The Dial Of Destiny earlier this week, with Ekin-Su describing Davide as 'my man'.

Ekin-Su and Davide appeared to be loved up just days before their split.

Then, late last night, Davide dropped a bombshell by announcing that he and Ekin-Su have split.

The former Islander didn't offer any explanation for their split, instead writing: "Ekin Su and I are no longer together. I am grateful for the memories and opportunities we shared together and I wish her nothing but the best.

"I would like for everybody to respect this decision during this difficult time, I will continue to support Ekin in anyway possible."

Now Davide is officially back on the market, where's the one place he might be able to spark up a new romance? The Love Island villa, of course.

Davide announced the split on Instagram.

The ninth season of the dating show is currently underway, and we'll see contestants experience a shake up today (30 June) when they're split up and introduced to some new Islanders through Casa Amor.

The second villa usually introduces brand-new contestants, but there have been some rumours this year that previous Islanders will make a return.

Molly Marsh, who was axed from the villa earlier this season, is among those thought to be returning, and one post on Davide's Instagram has sparked speculation that he could also be making a comeback.

The snaps showed Davide standing in a pool of water and soaking up the sun, with the location tagged as Ibiza.

Alongside the images, Davide wrote: "Guess who’s coming back."

Though Davide was in Ibiza in the photos, the party island is just a short flight away from where the Love Island villa is located in Mallorca.

Davide hinted he might be returning to Love Island.

It's also hard to ignore the timing of his post, which came yesterday (29 June), just before the return of Casa Amor.

Followers were quick to share their theories, with one commenting: "Just broke up with ekin now going back into love island no doubt."

Another unimpressed follower commented: "Love island casa? For real? Well I hope not, that’s an unfollow for sure if so."

The return of Davide would definitely cause some drama in the villa, but is the villa the place he's 'coming back' to? I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
