Rumours of a shock romance between Ekin-Su Culculoglu and Towie’s James Argent have inspired the Love Island star’s own Wagatha Christie investigation.

The reality TV stars, 29 and 36 respectively, had apparently been spotted spending time together following Ekin-Su’s controversial stint in the Celebrity Big Brother house.

The pair were said to have grown much closer after James consoled her following the intense backlash she received on social media after her Big Brother exit.

But now a firm denial has come from the PR team that looks after both stars, while James and Ekin-Su insist they’re both still single.

Their team are calling out a friend who’s ‘selling [Ekin-Su and James] out’ for ‘a quick buck’.

A source had previously claimed the pair were ‘practically neighbours’ and that they’d ‘passionately kissed’ after spending more time together.

But the information about a blossoming romance appears to be false, and those who represent the pair are putting their heads together to root out the source of the leaks.

A source told Metro.co.uk: ‘The team are channelling their inner Wagatha Christie and trying to find out who is selling out on Ekin-Su. And they’re pretty sure they know who it is.

‘Ekin-Su and James are friends, and have had a little laugh to themselves about the story. They both remain single. A small number of people who were told about a drunken snog. Everybody is getting closer to the source of the leaks.’

They continued: ‘Sadly, the pair are no strangers to people trying to make a quick buck out of them, and it looks like this is another case of somebody trying to sell out on the pair.’

Ekin-Su split with her Love Island boyfriend Davide Sanclimenti in January this year and has kept her dating life private since.

Shortly after the break-up, she entered the Celebrity Big Brother house alongside former X Factor judges Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne, and eventual winner David Potts.

However, she was evicted to a crowd of boos and drew further controversy when she blamed the editors of the ITV reality series for her poor reception, adding that she was ‘hurt’ that she wasn’t portrayed as her true self.

Since leaving the house she’s kept a low profile and has reportedly spent a lot of that time getting to know James, who has been on a journey of his own in recent months.

He split from his 19-year-old girlfriend Stella Turian in November last year after the couple had been dating for a little over – they had been long-distance for the majority.

The Towie star has also lost a staggering 14 stone in the last three years after getting gastric band surgery in 2021. The life-changing operation has seen him return to a healthy weight.
