Posting a photo of himself and girlfriend Kaz Crossley, he said:

"So yeah basically 2 eye surgeries later after a really unfortunate accident, I’ve lost all vision in my right eye as it got split in half, who would have thought a champagne cork would be the end of me.

"But I still have 1 eye left, looking at the bright side of things."

Theo, who appeared in the 2017 series of Love Island, thanked Kaz for flying out to be by his side.

He ended the post by saying:

"If anyone knows where sells cool eye patches let me know :). #captinhook #thor #fettywap.”

The couple confirmed their romance earlier this year, after meeting during a trip to Thailand in March.

A source told OK! Magazine at the time that although they are seeing each other, they're taking it slow for the minute.

“They’re seeing how things go and taking it day by day. They’re having fun and getting to know each other," they said.

Kaz left the Love Island villa last year with fellow contestant Josh Denzel.

The pair got together on the show after Josh dumped Georgia (loyal, babe) in favour of newbie Kaz when he met her in the second villa midway through the series.

The pair stayed together for a few months before parting ways earlier this year.

Kaz announced the breakup on her Instagram, saying:

"Sometimes things don’t go the way you planned, but you have to be grateful for the journey. Thank you for everything especially showing me how to love myself again."
