Made in Chelsea’s Lily Gray opens up about her close friendship with Love Island winner Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and the rumours that she has been cheated on.

Chatting to hosts Bobby Norris and Stephen Leng on the showbiz gossip programme Access All Areas, the reality star revealed her admiration for her friend Ekin-Su and her concern for her relationship with Davide Sanclimenti: “From what I understand there’s been a lot of stuff going on in the Daily Mail in regards to stuff he’s been up to. I just hope that he does not treat this girl badly because she is phenomenal. She is such a cool girl, she is a girl’s girl, she’s funny, she really cares about you.”

She continued: “It’s been such a whirlwind for her. She wins Love Island, she does the most amazing job, she takes the world by storm and comes out with Davide finding true love. If he has done anything to f*** up anything with her then the world is going to hate him.”

The Made in Chelsea star revealed the advice that she gave to Ekin-Su at their lunch together that day: “She arrived half an hour late like “where’s my drink?” If it is actually true, then why would you risk losing Ekin-Su? Like she’s an absolute legend. She’s a queen. Davide would be nothing without her. I said that to her today “if he has done this, he’ll be nothing without you. But you will be okay.” Guys will be swanning for her. She’ll get some amazing guy.”

She continued: “I feel like he [Davide Sanclimenti] likes to party a lot. He’s a big party boy, this is what I’ve heard. I know that he was at a big event that she hosted and was the face of and he just wanted to go out and party. It’s her event, it’s her night. Be the supportive boyfriend. Support your queen! And he just wanted to go out. It’s like, you know what Ekin, if he’s this type of person and if these rumours are going to come out as true then sack him off. I said that to her today: “if this is what is about to come out, you cannot stay there”. They live together!”
