Although Love Island 2021 was two years ago, we can’t help but reflect on the stellar cast and hope that next season’s cast is just as memorable.

Love Island has had it’s fair share of hunks stroll into the Island, but 2021 just had some of the best. One such dreamboat who, in our opinion, has yet to be out-bombshelled, is Teddy Soares.

Here's everything you need to know about the former Islander...

When was Teddy Soares on Love Island?

Teddy slow-mo walked onto our screens way back in 2021. He was a bombshell on day 12, and honestly we’re shocked he wasn’t an OG Islander.

How old is Teddy Soares?

Teddy was born April 6, 1995, making him 28 years old and an Aries.

Where is Teddy Soares from?

He’s from Manchester, oooop north.

Who did Teddy Soares couple up with?

Teddy went on speed dates with Kaz Kamwi, Rachel Finni, Sharon Gaffka, and of course, Faye Winter. He quickly coupled up with Faye, and after a few bumps on the road - more on that later- the couple made it all the way to the final.

What happened with Teddy Soares, Faye Winter and Ofcom?

Remember those bumps we mentioned? First, when Teddy was shipped off the dreaded Casa Amor, he chose to stay loyal to Faye. Faye however, coupled up with new boy Sam Jackson after she believed Teddy was unfaithful. Although they eventually recoupled with each other, Faye and Teddy still had some challenges.

On Movie Night, producers showed footage of Teddy admitting that he found fellow Islander, Clarisse Juliette, attractive. They then showed clips of the pair flirting, much to Faye’s annoyance.

Faye went on what can only be considered as a rampage, and as a result Ofcom received a staggering and record-breaking 25,000 complaints. She called him “a f***ing liar” and a “two-faced p***k” and much more, but we’re not sure we can write it. Faye did later apologise to Teddy, and the couple were soon back on track.

Did Teddy Soares and Faye Winter win Love Island?

Although they didn’t win, they finish in third place behind Chloe Burrows and Toby Aromolaran who came second and Millie Court and Liam Reardon who won series seven.

Are Teddy Soares and Faye Winter still together?

Although Teddy and Faye remained a couple for a year and a half, they decided to call it quits in February 2023.

Their split seemed amicable at first but there's since been rumours and allegations of cheating, but since Teddy is pretty tight-lipped about their relationship, we fear this could be one we’ll never get all the answers to.

Who is Teddy Soares dating?

Teddy is reportedly dating model Casey Boonstra. Although they have yet to officially confirm their relationship, eagle-eyed fans noticed that they both jetted off to Greece at the same time this year. These fans are top-quality sleuths in our opinion.

In October 2023, Teddy told The Sun, “I am loved-up at the moment. Well, maybe I shouldn't say loved-up but I am seeing someone and really happy. It is early days and I'm not going to say who it is. We are just taking our time and getting to know each other."

What is Teddy Soares doing now?

Before Love Island, Teddy was a senior financial consultant at a firm in Manchester. Fancy. According to his Linkedin, this involved arranging 'straight forward funding solutions for professional and corporate businesses across the UK’.

Now, Teddy has been a model and influencer and has done collabs with brands like Prada and AllSaints.

Most recently he appeared on Celebrity SAS, where he broke two of Matt Hancock’s ribs. He admitted to The Mirror, “It felt amazing. I couldn’t bring myself to go back to the UK without having kicked his a**. I didn’t feel guilty.”

Does Teddy Soares have Instagram?

He sure does! Go follow him over at @teddy_soares and get ready to swoon.
