Ekin-Su Culculoglu’s future at Dancing On Ice ‘doubtful’

Ekin-Su Culculoglu’s future with Dancing On Ice is “in doubt as family and friends feel she has been hung out to dry” after the racy routine sparked over 100 Ofcom complaints

Ekin-Su Culculoglu’s family and friends have reportedly felt like she was “hung out to dry” by Dancing On Ice bosses after viewers on the show last week complained about her routine, which could spell her future in the broadcast in question.

The Love Island star recreated a memorable scene from the ITV2 reality show which saw her crawling on the floor, sparking over 100 Ofcom complaints from viewers who thought the routine was too racy for the family-friendly series.

According to The Sun, those close to Ekin-Su are not happy with how the situation was handled as she didn’t choose her outfit or her moves.

A source said: “The general feeling among her family and friends is that she was in this situation through no fault of her own.

‘Ekin-Su was told which track she would skate to, what outfit she would wear, and what moves she would perform.

“The feeling is that the performance she gave didn’t sit well with viewers on a show that airs Sunday night teatime, especially one that’s popular with families.”

The insider added that ITV bosses thought it was “reasonable” for a Love Island contestant to perform a racy routine, but the audience for Dancing On Ice is different.

The feeling among Ekin-Su’s loved ones is that the show has gone too far with its routine.

However, the Turkish beauty is said to have put on a brave face and had no qualms about the appearance.

Web has reached out to representatives from Dancing On Ice for comment.

Ekin-Su certainly brought some fire to the rink, performing in a nude mesh jumpsuit with a dramatically embellished detail.

The ensemble was a recreation of what Britney Spears wore in her Toxic music video – which the reality star danced to.

A source said, “The general feeling among her family and friends is that she was in this situation through no fault of her own.”

The actress crawled across the ice during the performance, an ode to the famous Love Island scene in which she crawled across the villa’s patio to kiss fellow islander Jay Younger behind her partner Davide Sanclimenti’s back.

The sultry routine also saw her lying on her back and being pulled up into the arms of partner Brendyn with a bevy of animated facial expressions.

Ekin-Su and professional skater Brendyn Hatfield were marked by the judges with 21.5 points in the middle of the rankings.

But while they agreed the star certainly had sex appeal, they were hoping for a little more from the performance.

“It was very sexy. But what I want more of is skating,” said judge Jayne Torvill. Ashley agreed as he said, “Skate alone without holding on to Brendyn, show us what you can do.”

Many viewers also took to social media to brand the routine “not appropriate” for the family show, which will air before the tipping point.

But the performance was a hit with Ekin-Su’s friend Davide, who sat in the audience and teased that he couldn’t wait to take her home.

Later in the show, the public vote revealed the Love Island star received the lowest number of public votes and will skate off alongside another star on this week’s show.
