ITV backtracks on claims Ekin-Su Culculoglu ‘pulled out’ of Lorraine interview

OHMYGOSSIP — ITV has insisted Ekin-Su Culculoglu didn’t cancel her planned appearance on ‘Lorraine’ at the last minute.
The former ‘Love Island’ star – who was evicted from the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ house last week – had been due to speak to Lorraine Kelly on Monday (18.03.24) but she didn’t appear on the ITV morning show.
In a statement, the broadcaster said last night: “We’d like to clear up a misunderstanding, Ekin-Su did not pull out of the show or throw the programme into chaos this morning.
“We’d love to welcome her back on the programme soon. We apologise for the confusion.”
This is a U-turn from Lorraine’s own comments on the matter, who had confirmed just minutes before the show went on air that her planned guest wouldn’t be joining her.
During a link from ‘Good Morning Britain’, she had been asked about her interview for the reality star.
However, she told Susanna Reid and Ed Balls: “I thought [she would be here] but alas, no. I don’t know what’s happened, I don’t know.
“We’re trying to find out.”
She added that her production team were trying to get to the bottom of the situation, and repeated that Ekin “was due to come in” for a chat.
The confusion comes after Ekin-Su’s explosive interview on ‘Late and Live’ following her CBB eviction, during which she claimed the ITV reality show had been edited to make her appear a certain way.
She argued: “You haven’t seen anything, they’ve cut stuff out… I’m just hurt that I wasn’t portrayed as myself on the show.”
Despite her claims, hosts AJ Odudu and Will Best pointed out that as she’d only just left the house, she couldn’t have seen any of the show yet and so didn’t know what had been aired.
Ekin-Su’s family previously urged ‘CBB’ fans to stop sending her abuse online while she was still on the show.
They said: “Last night was a really sad episode to watch. Ekin-Su has always cared and worn her heart on her sleeve and last night we saw that.
“What made last night a thousand times harder though is seeing and listening to hateful comments, trolling, name calling and physical abuse threats. Nobody deserves this behaviour and to read some of what we did last night.
“@bbuk is a reality entertainment show that is edited to entertain us as viewers. We see an hour of 24 hours each day and the show is a social experiment that has been known to heighten emotions.”
