Discussing the fact that he’s half Nigerian and his family name, Teddy Soares revealed to the Islanders that he actually used to be royalty
Teddy announces…he’s a Prince
Love Island’s Teddy Soares appears to have been keeping a secret ever since he strolled into the Spanish villa.
The 26-year-old was gutted during Friday night’s episode when he arrived back to find his partner Faye had coupled up with someone new.
However, during Saturday night’s Love Island : Unseen Bits, viewers were treated to some footage filmed before the boys headed to Casa Amor.
It was certainly happier times for Teddy and Faye as the couple were seen cosied up on the swing seat as they chatted to some of the other Islanders.
Discussing the fact that he’s half Nigerian and his name, Teddy revealed to the group that he actually used to be royalty.
“I’m going to say something so shocking, I’m actually a Prince of one of them,” he announced.
“Big man!” Aaron replied, as the rest of the group looked stunned.
“Faye’s eyes went like that!” Tyler joked, implying that her eyes popped wide open.
Explaining himself further, Teddy said: “It’s like a village, it’s within the Delta State village. So, my grandad who has obviously passed away, so I’m actually no longer a prince, I was a prince, but yeah…”
“Stop it!” Faye then replied, and later commented on it in the Beach Hut while she was alone.
“Teddy was once a prince! Are you joking?” she said. “I mean I’ve definitely got to stop with burping now, I might have to just stop and lay off the swearing so much but I think I’ve got this y’know.”
Back with the group she joked: “Hang on, I just need to go and grab my tiara guys!” as Aaron added: “We’re in the presence of royalty,” before getting down on one knee in front of Teddy.
Viewers tuning in at home were just as impressed and took to Twitter to comment.
“TEDDY IS A PRINCE ?? WE BEEN KNEW IT #loveisland,” one person posted.
“Teddy was a prince. Can he get any more perfect #LoveIsland,” a second tweeted.
A third added: “TEDDY WAS A PRINCE?!?!?!?! This makes him 10x hotter omg #LoveIsland.”
And another penned: “Okay so that is our explanation to why teddy us the best man alive.. teddy was once a f**king PRINCE. #LoveIsland.”
Someone else asked: “A prince? Why we only just hearing this? #LoveIsland.”
During the re-coupling on Friday night, Faye lashed out at Teddy after assuming that he had cheated due to the Casa Amor postcard.
However, to Faye’s shock, Teddy walked down the steps of the villa alone as he held her teddy behind his back.
He looked devastated to see that she was with someone else, but Faye lashed out at him and said that she had seen him kissing another girl, but he tried to explain that it had been during a game.
She dismissed his comments, but later seemed to feel guilty and spoke to him next to the fire pit.
Faye asked: “Are you OK?” to which he replied: “Not really, no.”
“No, no, I am so sorry,” she said.
He responded: “What have you got to be sorry for? You picked a guy, didn’t you?”
“I didn’t really pick a guy,” she replied. “I honestly, hand on heart, didn’t speak to the lads for two days. I slept out here outside with Millie both nights. And then, the postcard came.”
Faye went off to find the postcard to show him as Teddy appeared to wipe away a tear.
Love Island continues at 9pm on ITV2.
