What do we reckon is Tanyel Revan the next Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu? (Picture: ITV)
We all know there’ll only ever be one Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu which is why Love Island fans are wary of Tanyel Revan.
The 2023 series may have only just started but viewers are already picking up on similarities between Tanyel and 2022 winner Ekin-Su who became an icon in her own right during her time in the Majorcan villa.
Ekin-Su – who has since landed deals with Beauty Works and Oh Polly – gained a legion of die-hard fans whether she was crawling on the terrace for a snog or arguing with now boyfriend Davide Sanclimenti.
And with drama already simmering in the new South African villa it appears Tanyel 26 is channelling her inner Ekin-Su 28 to confront the guys when she’s not happy.
In Thursday night’s episode audiences at home saw Tanyel give Kai Fagan a piece of her mind after he started chatting to other girls.
‘The fact that you told me you were jealous was the first intel I got that you actually liked me’ Kai initially said.

Hitting back Tanyel quipped: ‘I know and this is what I wanted to talk to you about. It really f***ing annoyed me though that you spoke to someone else.
‘And I actually wanted to literally get something and chuck it at your head.’
She continued: ‘I feel disrespected when someone’s talking to other people kissing other people it makes me feel sick because it’s like, 一統徵信詐欺 “Hello! I am the woman here”.’

Do you think Tanyel is Ekin-Su 2.0?Comment Now
It’s safe to say viewers were baffled by the whole exchange especially given that Tanyel hadn’t exactly made it clear that she was interested in Kai at all.
‘Is Tanyel trying to cause drama so she can be the new Ekin Su??? Why is she getting jealous when she’s barely even spoken to Kai??’ one fan tweeted.
‘Tanyel is trying to hard to be like Ekin Su’ wrote another.
Others insisted that Tanyel ‘will never be her’ hailing Turkish actress Ekin-Su ‘one of a kind.’
Tanyel = ekin two #LoveIsland

Not everyone can go into a villa full of cameras and have the confidence of Ekin su. Go easy on Tanyel! #loveisland

‘Tanyel = Ekin two’ one punny Twitter user wrote.
Many even pointed out how similar the Islanders look noting that they could be sisters going off appearances alone.

Not everyone is giving Tanyel such a hard time though despite many people’s reluctance to warm to her.
One wrote sweetly: ‘Not everyone can go into a villa full of cameras and have the confidence of Ekin su. Go easy on Tanyel!’
So what’s your verdict – could we see Tanyel involved in cook-offs sometime soon? Might she be on Dancing On Ice 2024? Is she really Ekin-Two?
Love Island airs each night at 9pm on ITV2.
