 Ekin-Su Culculoglu,(pictured) a familiar face to many from her appearances on Love Island and Celebrity Big Brother, has recently embarked on a profound journey of reflection, resilience, and renewal, capturing the attention and hearts of audiences worldwide.

Culculoglu’s post-Celebrity Big Brother reflections are a poignant reminder of the multifaceted nature of fame and the inherent challenges that accompany public scrutiny.

In a series of candid Instagram posts, she bared her soul, expressing gratitude for the unwavering support of her fans and the compassionate understanding of the brands she collaborates with.

She said: “Haven’t felt myself for a long time, and I’ve realised I had kind of lost myself and for a while didn’t know who I was beyond being defined by ex relationships or TV shows, and that needs to change! I am so excited for all the growth and full healing.”

“CBB was the final lightbulb moment to make me realise what needs to be done. Embracing the fresh start to a new month and new era…. Wishing everyone an April full of possibilities. I am so grateful for each one of you [red heart emoji]”.

Ekin-Su’s followers were quick to show their support. One fan said: “Oh Ekin it’s so lovely to see you. Never apologise for taking time for yourself, onwards and upwards”.

Another added: “You’re a lovely lady. No need to explain anything. Take good care of yourself and don’t change who you are . Xx”. A third wrote: “Dont have to justify yourself step back re heal yourself you will know when you are ready to step back in the light take care.”

During  her appearances on Celebrity Big Brother Late and Live. During the show, the star had suggested that viewers hadn’t seen everything that happened in the house, especially after Marisha Wallace nominated her.

“You haven’t seen everything, they cut stuff out,” she said on the show. But Strictly Come Dancing star Layton Williams disagreed, saying: “You’re not going to blame it on the edit. One thing you’re not going to do is blame it on the edit. We see what we see and it’s a shame.”

After the show, some viewers showed their support for Ekin-Su on social media. “She looks sad, I hope she is okay more than anything. She is going through a break up recently. Be Kind,” one fan posted on Instagram.

Another commenter said: “Feel really sorry for her. The hate she gets is not needed. Big brother’s big mouth last night was horrible to watch, who was protecting her? So cruel and disappointing! “.

Yet, beneath the veneer of appreciation lies a narrative of self-doubt, identity struggles, and the quest for authenticity in an industry often defined by artifice.

The Love Island alumna’s journey towards self-realization began long before her stint on Celebrity Big Brother. Emerging as a contestant on the popular reality dating show, Culculoglu quickly captured the hearts of viewers with her infectious charm, effervescent personality, and undeniable charisma.

Behind the facade of confidence lay a tumultuous inner world, fraught with insecurities, uncertainties, and the lingering shadows of past relationships.

The pressures of fame, coupled with the emotional rollercoaster of reality television, took a toll on Culculoglu’s mental well-being, leaving her feeling adrift in a sea of expectations and perceptions.

The turning point in Culculoglu’s journey came during a pivotal interview on Late and Live, a spin-off show of Celebrity Big Brother.

Grilled by hosts AJ Odudu and Will Best about her interpersonal conflicts within the house, Culculoglu found herself navigating treacherous waters, grappling with probing questions and relentless scrutiny.

The interview, marked by uncomfortable confrontations and emotional revelations, served as a catalyst for Culculoglu’s introspection, prompting her to confront the demons of self-doubt and insecurity that had long plagued her psyche.

In the aftermath of the interview, Culculoglu made the courageous decision to step back from the spotlight, retreating into the sanctuary of solitude to embark on a journey of self-discovery and renewal.

Taking a hiatus from social media, she sought solace in introspection, reflection, and the healing embrace of self-care. Surrounded by the comforting embrace of nature and the gentle whispers of self-help books, Culculoglu embarked on a quest to reclaim her sense of self, liberating herself from the shackles of past traumas and societal expectations.
