Celebrating the launch, Ekin-Su and Davide were in attendance at 156 West 38th Street’s Asian Fusion restaurant Sei Less, where they were joined by the collection’s principal designers for a slap-up meal.

Opting for a tasteful canary yellow dress, Ekin-Su, 28, ensured she caught the eye as she took a seat alongside her Italian boyfriend ahead of the celebratory dinner.

The Turkish star drew further attention to her naturally pretty features by generously applying make-up selected from a rich colour palette, while her hair was neatly styled in a simple centre-parting.

He later told This Morning: ‘It was not nice for Ekin-Su to be put in that situation. We were talking all that night. When I saw the newspaper I laughed.’

Ekin Su added: ‘I called Davide and asked what was going on – it wasn’t just them, there was a group of them. It’s nice that fans stick up to you – but our relationship is private.’

The Love Island winner was joined by a pal as they hopped into a taxi with the girls after watching the KSI v Swarmz and KSI v Pineda fights at the O2 Arena.
