Faye Winter says she was subjected to the "worst trolling" after Love Island
"I’m a good person, I know I have a good heart."
Faye Winter has revealed she's been dealing with online trolling since rising to fame after her appearance on Love Island.
In an interview with The Sun, the reality star opened up about the online hate and how her partner Teddy Soares helps her through it.
"People need to get the word ‘perfect’ out of their mind," she said.
“I’ve had the worst trolling since coming out of Love Island, but I’m a good person, I know I have a good heart.
“I might not always execute what I want to say in the right way.”
Faye gained a lot of online attention when she was involved a fiery argument on Love Island, which left viewers shocked. Her behaviour led to 25,000 complaints being made to Ofcom.
It also led her to become one of the most trolled stars of the series.
The 26-year-old also said her relationship with Teddy, who she met on the show, has never been stronger and that the pair continuously support each other since leaving the villa.
The couple came in third place on the ITV dating show after Liam Reardon and Millie Court were crowned the winners, and have been loved-up ever since.
"Me and Teddy always say as long as our relationship is good, then nothing else matters,” she said.
“I want my relationship to be the first and foremost thing. If me and Teddy started to go down the pan. I would give up jobs to make our relationship work.
“He’s my biggest fan. I couldn’t do this without him. Teddy supports every dream I have and I support every dream he has.
“There’s no jealousy or competition. We both want each other to do well.”
Despite her new-found fame, Faye has returned to volunteering with Guide Dogs UK and insists she'll "never lose herself".
The former lettings manager, who is passionate about property, recently launched a project called Faye Home and hopes to channel that passion into the new business venture.
