Love Islands Ekin-Su vows to not use filters anymore as its a bad example for young girls

Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu has said that she will be ditching the use of filters due to their lack of authenticity.

The Love Island champion is keen to set a better example for young women and given her influencer status, many will look to her for the next trend.

And it seems the Essex native has been reflecting on her newfound fame and the direct impact her large platform can have. Taking to her Instagram stories the star announced: "I’ve also decided I’m not going to be using filters anymore."

She added: "No. I think it’s a bad example for all the women out there and young girls. So no more filters."

A filter is a tool used on social media to alter the way an image looks – whether it's smoothing out body blemishes or enhancing a product.

The 27-year-old who won the ITV2 reality show, along with partner Davide Sanclimenti, looked flawless as she shared the clip with her 2.8 million followers.

Still basking from her victory and with a number of lucrative opportunities in the bag, Ekin-Su styled her freshly highlighted hair down over her skintight spaghetti top and wore minimal makeup with a nude lip.

Since leaving the villa, the Turkish actress has been on a whirlwind of high-profile TV appearances, including Lorraine and The Big Breakfast.

Just two weeks after leaving the villa, the beauty and Italian hunk Davide landed their very own ITV2 travel show around Italy and Turkey.

During the trip, the couple will sample everything from local cuisine to bustling culture, while even taking a detour to meet their respective families.

The witty couple who won the hearts of the nation with their hilarious banter and iconic one-liners broke the news on the Big Breakfast to hosts Mo Gilligan and AJ Odudu.

Davide said: “We are going to be on ITV2 so it’s going to be like our own programme.”

Ekin-Su added: “It will be all real, fighting, I’ll be cooking for him, he’ll be cooking for me. It’ll be two cultures meeting families.”

In an appearance on the Lorraine show, Ekin-Su exclusively announced that the couple will soon share a lavish home together.

"We've decided we're moving in together. It's confirmed. Official. We are thinking end of September we're thinking of possibly moving to Essex, where I'm from."

She continued: "Davide's not been to Essex. I feel like it's nice because it's near London, it's easy to travel to. Bit of countryside but also that edginess to it as well."
