Love Island star Teddy Soares has revealed he used to be a Nigerian prince.

The 26 year old hunk left the villa and viewers at home stunned as he unveiled his blue blooded roots in a clip which aired on Saturday night's Love Island Unseen Bits.

Islanders Teddy, Faye Winter, Aaron Francis, Lucinda Strafford, Tyler Cruickshank and Kaz Kamwi were seen discussing their heritage, in a scene shot before the Casa Amor carnage.

As Teddy sat alongside Faye he revealed he is half Nigerian. Tyler Cruickshank then asked Teddy if he has a Nigerian name and which tribe his family were from.

Former financial consultant Teddy, who had fans devastated as they noticed a sweet gesture before the last dramatic recoupling, then revealed his royal roots.

He told his fellow Islanders: "I'm gonna say something so shocking, I'm actually a prince of one of them."

Each of the Islanders looked surprised while Lucinda, who has since split from Aaron, and Faye ask to hear more.

Teddy continued to explain: "It's like a village, it's part of… It's within the Delta state village.

"So, my Grandad has obviously passed away so I'm no longer actually a prince, I was a prince."

Faye looked impressed by Teddy's revelation as she later said in the Beach Hut: "Teddy was a prince! Are you joking? I mean I've definitely got to stop with the burping now.

"I might have to just stop and lay off the swearing so much but I think I've got this you know."

Viewers were also blown away by Teddy's royal status on Twitter.

One said: "Teddy said he’s a Prince. The way Lucinda and Faye eyes lit up", followed by a laughing face emoji.

Another added: "ofc teddy was a prince..look at him bro. #LoveIsland".

While a third swooned: "It makes total sense that Teddy is a prince #LoveIsland" next to two heart eye emojis.

Since the clip Faye and Teddy's romance has been thrown into doubt after the lads' trip to Casa Amor.

During their stay in the second villa with six new single women, the girls received a postcard. One image on the postcard saw Teddy locking lips with Clarisse Juliettè.

Faye then decided to move on from her romance with Teddy and recoupled with newbie Sam Jackson, which left Teddy single as he returned to the villa hoping to reunite with Faye.

Later, Teddy and Faye were seen talking about the photo on the postcard. Teddy insisted: "I was on the day bed for the entire time. You saw this and you picked someone else," leaving Faye crying on his shoulder.
