Love Island’s Ekin-Su in ‘terrifying’ flight drama as plane’s engine ‘explodes’

Love Island’s Ekin-Su has shared her “nightmare” after being on a plane that made an emergency landing.

The Love Island 2022 winner was on a flight from Bodrum, where she’d been holidaying with ex Davide Sanclimenti, when she claimed the "engine exploded" and “sparks and flames” broke out en route to Manchester.

The flight was diverted and later landed in Antalya, with Ekin-Su calling the experience “terrifying”.

"Nightmare experience," she wrote on Twitter. "The flight from Bodrum to Manchester the engine on the left exploded 4 times flames and sparks."

She added: "[It was like] something from a movie. Emergency landed in Antalya. Most terrifying experience ever! Still worried about if we will make it safe."

A Jet2 spokesperson told OK! :“Flight LS984 from Bodrum to Manchester followed standard procedure and diverted safely to Antalya on Thursday 24th August, after the crew reported a technical issue.

"Due to the late hour, customers were provided with hotel accommodation in Antalya, and were flown home last night.

"At no point was anybody’s safety compromised, however we would of course like to apologise for the disruption caused.”

Ekin-Su had been holidaying in Bodrum, Turkey with Davide, as the couple rekindled their romance after their split.

The pair, who met on and won Love Island in summer 2022, split in June, but it appears they have patched things up.

They celebrated Ekin-Su's 29th birthday whilst in Turkey, where Ekin's family is from, and they weren't shy about letting their combined millions of Instagram followers know that they were spending time together.

Davide shared a snap of her with a chocolate cake and a glass of champagne on Instagram, as he wrote: "Despite all the storms, I wanted to make this day special for you… Enjoy the moment, make a wish and blow hard. Happy birthday, @ekinsuofficial."

Ekin-Su shared the post on her Instagram story and said: "Surprising me like always, thank you for a good birthday."

In June, Davide announced the shock split just 11 months after they had won the ITV2 dating show.

He said that he wished Ekin-Su "nothing but the best" but that they were "no longer together."

He added: "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 any way possible."
