Meanwhile, since the shocking incident took place, Theo's girlfriend Kaz has been nothing but supportive. As well as flying over to Ibiza to be with her man, Kaz has stayed in his hospital room and posted an adorable snap alongside him last night

Sharing an old photo of the pair, Kaz wrote, 'If you don’t like cheesy posts look away now❤️ So I hardly post pics of us because although we both came from the show I wanted to try and keep some privacy as I feel like I have that choice to. But these last few days has shown me a lot and I want to tell everyone how you make me feel.

'Thank you being unapologetically yourself, and being such an inspiration to many people. Your always looking at the positives and the fact you keep such high hopes when times are tough, I know we can get through anything. Thank you for keeping me so grounded, I love how you aren’t materialistic and judge people by who they are and not what they have. I appreciate everything you do and how supportive you are of me and work.'

She then added, 'You’re honestly amazing (apart from being the worst drunk) and you make me the happiest girl in the world. Even though we’ve been stuck in this hospital for a couple days now I would do it all over again because I know you would for me❤ one last thing I’m glad you didn’t loose your sense of humour otherwise I would have been really really bored lol. WE MOVE 💪🏼💪🏼💪'. [sic]
