Reality star Ekin-Su reveals why she didn’t attend Celebrity Big Brother final

Reality star Ekin-Su has revealed why she didn’t attend the Celebrity Big Brother final.
It was rumoured that the 29-year-old was struggling with the backlash she received since she was voted off the show last Friday.
The former Love Islander opened up about why this was the “right decision” for her to make.

Taking to her Instagram stories, Ekin-Su wrote: “I know it’s unlike me to hide away, but I’ve been taking some time to reflect.”
“Sometimes in our lowest moments, we learn the most important lessons about ourselves.”
“I hope you don’t think I was selfish for setting boundaries and putting my own needs first last night. I’m fully aware that not everybody will understand my absence, or think it was the right decision to make, BUT it was the right decision for me.”

“I chose to remove myself from a potentially uncomfortable situation that I preferred to avoid. I’m proud of myself for recognising what I need during this time, despite the hate that might come my way,” she added.
“Accountability is key and when I’m ready, I will give some context around these past few weeks. Thank you to everybody who has sent kindness my way, I see you, and I appreciate you. The new chapter starts now.”
Ekin-Su concluded by saying: “I hope everybody enjoyed watching the CBB final. A huge congratulations to David for the win. Xx”

A source previously told the Daily Mail: “It’s been a bit of a tough couple of weeks for Ekin-Su.”

She could have played the sob story card but has remained tight-lipped publicly and expressed to those around that she’s aware she must be accountable for a few things that have happened.
“Understandably she is feeling vulnerable, but is using this time to gather her thoughts, and figure out next steps, which is why her management believes withdrawing her from the final is the most sensible move.
“She has asked the team for some time to reflect which everybody is on board with.”
