Love Island 2021 fans were baffled as a picture emerged that possibly hinted Teddy Soares’ head had been turned – but there was a reasonable explanation for the smooch
Love Island fans were left racing to Twitter on Wednesday night over an unaired kiss that occurred between Teddy Soares and Clarisse Juliette.
Teddy is seen embracing and smooching the Casa Amor new girl in the pool in the snap, with many viewers questioning when it happened – and whether this meant Teddy was about to dump Faye Winter.
Viewers were fuming at the ITV2 dating series after they “set up” Teddy in the latest episode, to make it look as though his head had been turned in Casa Amor, leaving Faye devastated.
She decided to start getting to know one of the new boys, despite the fact Teddy had not actually done anything bad – asides kissing a girl but this was part of a challenge.
But some fans were left demanding answers after the episode, after an unseen image appeared to emerge on Twitter that showed Teddy kissing new girl Clarisse.
It was not the kiss from the challenge that fans had seen on air, but instead another kiss in the pool.
One fan tweeted: “Guys!!! Just seeing this going around!!! Is this Teddy & Clarissa??? What is this & when was this!!! What did we miss!!! We need answers Mr @LoveIsland.”
Another said: “Everyone stop. Teddy is not innocent at all.”
A third added: “Yall gassing up teddy but yall seen this?”
While the scene did not air on the show, we can confirm it was filmed during the Raunchy Race challenge which featured in Tuesday night’s episode.
Teddy kissed Clarisse for the task and not for any other reason, but for whatever reason the moment did not make the final episode edit.
So fans are not going mad, they did not miss it because it never aired – but ITV confirmed via picture captions that it was part of the challenge.
Something else that did not make the edit from the very same challenge was Faye getting a kiss of her own in the main villa pool.

Faye kissed Matthew MacNabb, so there must have been a task where two Islanders had to kiss in the pool.
Luckily, many viewers had seen the spoiler images and their captions so were able to jump to Teddy’s defence.
In other moments possibly missed out of the final edit, Kaz Kamwi got a kiss with new boy Matthew, while new girl Clarisse also got a smooch from Liam Reardon.
So fear not fans of Teddy and Faye, he has yet to kiss someone outside of a challenge.
The same can’t be said for some of the others after Tyler Cruickshank was caught out by partner Kaz, after he kissed a girl in bed in Casa Amor.
So she decided to follow her heart and confessed she liked Matthew, leading to a kiss between them.
In the next episode it looks as though the damage will be well and truly done, as the first-look clip hints at fresh heartache.

Millie Court’s partner Liam gives into temptation and snogs new girl Lillie Haynes outside of a challenge.
Elsewhere, Abigail Rawlings’ partner Toby Aromolaran is shown kissing a new girl too.
Neither Abi or Millie have moved on to a Casa Amor new boy, so will they be left single when the looming recoupling takes place?
Either way, events from the second villa will no doubt come to light and we expect chaos!
Here’s hoping that Faye doesn’t ditch Teddy though after being led to believe he had moved on via the super teasy postcard.
Love Island airs every night at 9pm on ITV2.
