How old is Teddy?

Teddy is 26-years old - the same age as Faye who he coupled up with.

Early on in the show, Faye was coupled up with Liam and she worried about their age gap.

Is Teddy really a Nigerian prince?

He used to be, apparently. On an episode of Love Island Unseen Bits, Teddy revealed he used to be a Nigerian Prince.

During a conversation with former islander Aaron Francis and Tyler Cruickshank about their Nigerian heritages, Teddy said: “I’m going to say something so shocking – I’m actually a prince of one of them."

He added: "It’s like a village, it’s within the Delta State village. So my grandad has obviously passed away so I’m no longer actually prince, I was a prince.”

Why did Teddy sign up for Love Island?

Speaking in an interview before he entered the villa, the 26-year-old said:"I think I’m ready for love now. Law of attraction is probably what I believe in, so being in the villa is part of that thought process.

"I’m not getting any younger. I’ve always been the type of guy to be in long relationships. Never broken three years though. If I do find someone in the villa, I’m going to take it seriously."

What does Teddy do for work?

Teddy is a Senior Financial Consultant.

Judging by his Instagram, it looks like he enjoys the finer things in life.

What is Teddy looking for in a partner?

When it comes to the Love Island ladies, Teddy is open to getting to know them all!

"I want to get to know all of the girls. I’m not afraid to step on toes to get the girl I want."

In terms of what he brings to the table, he added: "I’m cuddly, caring and all my friends, when they have an issue, they call me and confide in me. I’m always that person to lean on. I think I’m going to add that element with the boys. From a girls’ standpoint, they’re going to have to get used to me stirring a few pots and causing a bit of a ruckus. I do think hopefully, me walking into the villa the girls will have something to look at."
