When we first heard the news of a Davide and Ekin-Su TV show, we were tempted to exclaim ‘liar, actress’ to our phones but to our delight, the rumors are true—Davide and Ekin-Su really are getting a TV show and it’s coming sooner than you think!

All we can say is manifesting really works because we’ve been daydreaming about an ‘Ekin-De’ spinoff ever since the Love Island final, where the pair won and jetted home with the 50k prize money.

While it’s only been a few weeks since the last episode of Love Island season eight, we’re already missing our iconic enemies-to-lovers couple but it turns out, they’ll be back on our screens very soon…

Confirming the news on Channel 4’s Big Breakfast, Davide told AJ Odudu and Mo Gilligan: “Yes, I can tell you this. We are going on a road trip to Italy and Turkey, for one week in Italy and one week in Turkey. We are going to be on ITV2, and it's going to be like our own program."

Yes, our passionate pair are setting off on an adventure that’ll no doubt be filled with arguments, flirting and a whole lot of laughs.

Hinting at what the show will entail, Ekin-Su added: “It'll be all real, you know, fighting and I'll be cooking for him, he'll be cooking for me. It'll be like two cultures meeting." Fans also won’t have long to wait as Davide revealed on Instagram Live that the show will be hitting our TVs at the end of September—*screaming*.

And that’s not all for happy Ekin-De developments, Ekin-Su also revealed that the pair have been talking about moving in together! There are no confirmed dates on their big move yet but it’s definitely happening and soon.

Speaking to Lorraine on her eponymous show, Ekin-Su said: “So, basically, we’ve decided that we are moving in together, it’s confirmed. It’s official and we are thinking to move at the end of September, possibly to Essex, which is where I’m from.

“Davide’s not been to Essex and I feel like it’s so nice because it’s near London, it’s easy to travel to, a bit of countryside, but then also a bit of that edginess to it as well. But I’m very, very excited for that”—so are we!
