The ITV Love Island winner and former UCLan student is in danger of going home after a public vote landed her in the dance-off
Ekin-Su on ITV Dancing On Ice
ITV viewers have complained and say they are “calling Ofcom” as Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu delivered the “sexiest performance ever” on Dancing On Ice.
The Love Island beauty melted the ice with her “hot” routine. However the “sexy” dance in a thong leotard drew a lot of complaints and the 28-year-old is now n danger of going home after a public vote landed her in the dance-off.
Six celebrities competed on the first episode of Dancing On Ice 2023 last night (January 15) and the judges were thrilled with former UCLan student Ekin-Su and her professional partner Brendyn Hatfield’s steamy routine to Britney Spears’ Toxic. They were disappointed, however, by her skating ability and she scored 21.5 points which was not the lowest score of the night.
However, combined with the public voting for their favourites at home, she ended up at the bottom and will now face one of five celebrities who will compete next week. Former Strictly Come Dancing judge Oti Mabuse said she “loved” Ekin-Su’s performance as it was “hot, hot, hot – from the outfit to the make-up”.
Olympian skater Jayne Torvill agreed it was “sexy” but said: “I want more skating.” After finding out she was at the bottom, Ekin-Su said: “I’ve been really ill as well, and it’s like, I know it’s not an excuse, but I just got back up and, you know…”
Ekin-Su donned a very skimpy sequined thong leotard as she then crawled around on her hands and knees to recreate her famous ‘crawling’ moment from last year’s Love Island. Holly Willoughby couldn’t help but describe Ekin Su’s dance as ‘the sexiest routine ever’ on the ITV1 show
But many viewers all said the same thing as they complained that Ekin Su’s barely-there outfit and highly sexualised performance were ‘inappropriate’ for a family show at 7pm and she put far too much on display before the watershed. It led many to say her dance would spark complaints.
@julianhilaire joked: “I’m calling OFCOM about Ekin Su performance. Not the sexual content but the lack of skating.”

@gee_mcK said: “Bit much for a family show”
@corby_tun said: “#dancingonice Bless her, trying to do a sexy routine doesn’t really work when you’re moving with all the grace of a baby giraffe with a broken leg.”
@LoveRealityTV4 marvelled: “Ekin Su doing the Terrance crawl live on #Dancingonice.”
@Miss_Lauren_86 tweeted: “Not Ekin crawling again.” And @bricklyrspice said: “Obsessed with Ekin Su recreating this skating to Toxic.”
@shefacedus said: “Ekin-Su didn’t skate independently for a single moment and kept pausing to blow kisses to audience and gets 5s and 6s? What a joke this competition is #dancingonice”
@EN52871824 said: “That’s not the worst thing about her act, the outfit and dance moves completely inappropriate for a family programme….if its going to seedy and disgusting then put it on after 9…..”
@karen_lliyam said: “She didnt just say “less is more”… we can see that”
@damesfuller said: “Totally inappropriate outfit. Its a family show #DancingOnIce”
@davidmackayy said: “Obsessed with the Karens on the hashtag moaning about Ekin Su’s outfit, what did you want her to wear? A Sunday dress? #DancingOnIce”
