LOVE Island star Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu's best pal has opened up about what it's been like running the star's social media accounts.
Mabel – who met Turkish beauty Ekin-Su, 27, at a party in a hot tub – helped her friend to become the first of this year's Islanders to hit 1m followers.
But it hasn't been all plain sailing and she's admitted that the trolling has been so bad at times she's been reduced to to tears.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun, Mabel said: "It was so hard. I cried so many times. I spent a lot of time in my bedroom crying and thinking she's so sweet and down to earth and such a girls girl."
Mabel said that things got crazy when Ekin-Su shared a secret snog on the terrace with Jay Younger, despite being coupled up with Davide Sanclimenti.
She said: "When she went through that sticky patch with Jay in the beginning she had so much trolling.

"Our age didn't troll that much and it goes to the older generation! It's so sad.
"I am a big believer on calling people out though so I 100% called them all out."
It seems Ekin-Su and Davide have finally reached a good place, after he asked her to be exclusive with him.
