Real talk for a minute, the Closer team were literally just entertaining this phenomenal idea and suddenly, it's actually happening? See, put your dreams out into the universe and let the cosmos do the rest.

Yes, Love Island 2022's fiery bombshell Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, who lives in Essex, is being eyed by TOWIE producers for a future season of the popular reality series, if Sam Thompson's celebrity insight is anything to go by. And, to be honest, we've been taking loveable goofball (we say that with love) Sam's word as gospel for years now. What a babe.

Those who follow the former Made In Chelsea star on Instagram will know he takes to his Instagram story most evenings to share his thoughts on the latest edition of Love Island - while chomping on a Magnum. It should really be its own YouTube series, or at least a podcast, but we'll take whatever Sam we can get.

Commenting on Ekin-Su's suddenly unstable relationship with mega hunk Jay Younger, Sam spilled some major tea (or at the very least put it out into the universe, and you know how we feel about that), saying, "You've gotta respect the hustle, new girl (Antigoni Buxton) comes in and Ekin-Su is like, 'NO! I will make this about myself!'.

"She is very clued up. She gets the game. She'll be on TOWIE as soon as she comes out the villa."

Sam added the caption, "Ekin will be on TOWIE within minutes of leaving the villa 😂😂😂😂", just to reinforce his/our theory.

Now, although nothing is set in stone, allow us to present the evidence.

One - Sam said it.

Two - Ekin-Su lives in Essex (easy commute).

Three - the bombshell has been linked to former TOWIE hunk, James Lock following reports that the pair met through mutual friends and had a "passionate" fling before things fizzled out. Ekin-Su still follows him on Instagram, and lest we forget, a TOWIE producer's sustenance is DRAMA and AWKWARDNESS.

Four - Ekin-Su almost has half a million followers on Instagram and TOWIE producers love viewing figures.

Five - Sam also admitted that his best mate Pete Wicks 'knows' Ekin-Su (she also follows him on Instagram) and fun fact, Pete also knows the new bombshell Antigoni in the outside world.

In fact, Ekin-Su, who splits her time between Essex and Istanbul, also has links with Jack Grealish and Wayne Lineker. Go on girl.

She also follows Gareth Gates - unrelated.
