I’m a body language expert and Love Island's Ekin-Su is insecure and vulnerable – here's what she needs to be happy | The Sun
LOVE Island star Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu has been at the centre of some of the most dramatic moments in the villa this year.
After setting her sights on Italian hunk Davide Sanclimenti, the 27-year-old Turkish-born actress swiftly moved on to Jay Younger.
However, just as Ekin-Su admitted to 'falling' for Jay on the ITV2 dating show, the Scotsman had a complete change of heart.
Instead, Jay chose to couple up with Paige Thorne on Friday night – much to the disapproval of his former flame.
But while Ekin-Su may appear completely confident to viewers at home, a body language expert has insisted otherwise.
Speaking to The Sun on behalf of Betfair Casino, Darren Stanton revealed: "Ekin-Su is confident about her feelings towards Jay, but because her feelings are strong she also shows signs of insecurities.
"We saw this when she questioned Jay’s affection towards her, like holding her eye contact and being tactile with her, and the fact he didn’t try and reassure her before he left the villa to go on a date with Antigoni.
"The pitch of her voice dropped and she is often seen biting her lip, a tell-tale sign someone is lacking in confidence."
Darren also added that Ekin-Su – who is currently coupled up with newcomer Charlie Radnedge – needs "reassurance" when it comes to relationships.
He continued: "For all the bravado and confidence that she has shown she has revealed herself to be quite a vulnerable person when all of the attention is not focused on her, it appears that she needs lots of reassurance to maintain her happiness."
It comes after the star's family shared their concerns after the other Islanders failed to stand up for Ekin-Su during an argument.
Earlier this week, viewers watched on as Ekin-Su decided to confront Jay about his feelings towards Paige.
It ended in the beauty storming off calling the hunk a "mug", before being labelled a "headache" by fellow Islander Jacques O’Neill.
Following the scenes, Ekin-Su's family took to social media to share a cryptic tweet.
The tweet read: "Most times you need your friends/some to guide you or pull you to the side. This is so you don't make rash decisions."
They added: "Why didn't this happen?"
Meanwhile, The Sun exclusively revealed how Ekin-Su has been accused of devising a plan where she would try to remain on the ITV2 dating show until a man, James Price, entered as a latecomer or during the show’s halfway shake-up, Casa Amor.
A friend told us about the Turkish beauty’s secret plan after deciding her sneaky tactics were just a step too far.

They said: “Everybody knows Love Island can be a big machine for making money and becoming famous.
"Even those that really did find love also happened to make tons of money too, didn’t they?
“Ekin just wanted a piece of that.
“It was fine when she was just being funny and stirring up drama but it’s upsetting people now so I just felt like I had to say something. Plus people are voting for her without knowing this.”
