Love Island star Teddy Soares left his co-stars shocked after revealing his royal connections during an episode of Unseen Bits.
During an episode of Unseen Bits over the weekend, the Islander revealed he was formerly a Nigerian prince, and his fellow contestants were left stunned!
Sharing his royal admission ahead of heading into Casa Amor, Teddy spoke to the Islanders about his Nigerian heritage, saying: “I'm going to say something so shocking – I’m actually a prince of one of them.”
Explaining the low-down on his royal connection, Teddy replied: “It’s like a village, it’s within the Delta State village.
“So my grandad has obviously passed away so I’m no longer actually prince, I was a prince,” Teddy explained before Faye shockingly added: “Stop it!”
Faye later took to the Beach Hut to express just how shocked she was, as she said: “Teddy was once a prince! Are you joking?
"I mean I've definitely got to stop with burping now, I might have to just stop and lay off the swearing so much but I think I've got this y'know.”
The Islanders weren’t the only ones baffled at Teddy’s admission, with many viewers taking to Twitter to discuss his link to royalty.
One person tweeted: “Of course teddy was a Nigerian prince before, I swear that man is perfect.”
“Teddy may no longer be a prince but he’s still definitely a king #LoveIsland,” added another.
Sunday night’s episode saw Teddy and Faye rekindle their romance after Casa Amor led them to have a very intense re-coupling, but it seems like sparks are still flying between the pair!
Love Island continues at 9pm on ITV2.
