The pair became the latest couple to join the Love Island winners list after winning the hearts of the public who enjoyed seeing their love story unfold over the summer. Now, they're returning for a two-part series which will see the couple packing their bags and jetting off for more adventures.
Together, Ekin-Su and Davide will be heading back to their hometowns in Italy and Turkey, meeting old friends and family and sampling the culture and cuisine of both countries. Talking about taking their trip, Davide said: "It was surreal at the beginning because I didn’t expect to go into the Villa and then fall in love and bring the person that I love to my hometown. But at the same time, I was so excited and really enjoyed all of those special moments. I will cherish them."
Ekin-Su echoed his feelings, adding: "It felt too good to be true, I kept thinking how are you here in Turkey with my grandma? It was honestly amazing".
Here's everything you need to know about Ekin-Su & Davide: Homecomings.

What will Ekin-Su & Davide get up to on their travels?
ITV has revealed what the two reality stars will be getting up to on their romantic getaway. First off, Davide will be returning to his hometown of Frosinone in Italy with Ekin-Su by his side.
Before they get there, the pair will embark on a whistle-stop tour of Verona, which Shakespeare fans will know as the city of love made famous in Romeo and Juliet. Then, they'll travel through the Tuscan valley before eventually heading off to visit Istanbul in Turkey.
There, Ekin-Su will be introducing Davide to some of her acting colleagues, and then the pair will set off on an eight-hour road trip in a campervan to visit Odemis, Ekin-Su's family village. Throughout their journeys, we'll be meeting the couple's family and friends and taking in the sights of Turkey and Italy.
The pair clearly enjoyed their time on the road. Talking about their highlights, Davide said: "Well I loved the Turkish bath experience. It is really warm in there and you have a massage after. I felt relaxed after it and I would recommend it to everyone. We also had a lovely romantic dinner in Italy and it reminded us of our last date in the Love Island Villa with the candles and lovely lights."
Ekin-Su added: "Yes, I also really loved that date! I would suggest going to the countryside in Italy. I fell in love with Davide’s hometown because I want to live in the countryside one day, it would be so relaxing. I would love to grow my own fruit and vegetables. I would have my own wine bar as well."
Paul Mortimer, Director of Reality Commissioning and Controller, ITV2 said: "We can't wait to bring this fantastic series to ITV2. We can look forward to more romance, laughter, fun and everything in between from the couple as they embark on two epic adventures in Turkey and Italy together."
Is there a trailer?
Ekin-Su has shared a brief teaser of the pair getting up to all kinds of mischief across her social media channels. Whilst it looks like the pair have plenty of fun in the sun, it teases a couple of arguments as well; is there trouble in paradise?
