We may only be into week two into the latest series of Love Island but SO much has happened already. From new girls Lucinda Strafford and Millie Court causing most of the boys head to turn, the end of Sharon Gaffka and Aaron Francis to Toby Aromolaran ending things with Kaz Kamwi to pursue things with Chloe Burrows.

Let’s not even get started on Hugo Hammond’s row with Sharon. There’s been hella drama.

It doesn’t stop there though, as new bombshell Teddy Soares was teased to enter the villa at the end of Thursday’s episode.

So who is this mystery hunk? Who has he got his eye on? We've done all the digging for you…

Who is Teddy Soares?

After witnessing more recouplings and new faces than ever on Love Island, Teddy is the latest bombshell to descend onto the villa and he’s not afraid to step on some toes.

Before entering, he seemed to be keen to stir up some trouble. He said, “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.”

Why is Teddy Soares going on Love Island?

In his own words, he’s not getting any younger and he’s a relationship kind of guy – maybe he could have a word with young Toby?

“I’m not getting any younger. I’ve always been the type of guy to be in long relationships. Never broken three years though,” he admits.

“If I do find someone in the villa, I’m going to take it seriously.”

When describing himself, Teddy revealed that he thinks he’s going to be a hit with the lads, too.

He said, "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."

The Islander is ready to settle down with someone special, as he added, “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."
