The explosive drama Love Island fans have been waiting for has finally arrived. Kaz could be left single if Toby decides he prefers Chloe, but maybe there's hope for her yet as new boy Teddy prepares to enter the villa.

The Islanders have been unsettled in their couples since Lucinda and Millie came in and turned heads.

The current residents of the luxury Spanish villa are: Sharon, Aaron, Liberty, Hugo, Jake, Kaz, Brad, Chloe, Toby, Faye, Liam, Rachel, Lucinda and Millie.

"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," he said, speaking about his entry into the villa.

"I'm not getting any younger. I've always been the type of guy to be in long relationships. Never broken three years though.

"If I do find someone in the villa, I'm going to take it seriously. "

Living up to his name, Teddy says he's "cuddly" and "caring."

He added: "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.

"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."

Who has Teddy got his eyes on?

When asked which of the stunning Love Island girls might be his type on paper, Teddy kept his cards close to his chest.

"I want to get to know all of the girls. I'm not afraid to step on toes to get the girl I want," he said.

Teddy Soares' Instagram

If you fancy giving the new bombshell a stalk online (we won't judge), his Instagram handle is @teddy_soares.

He's got 5,000 followers at the moment - although we're sure that number will... er... soar when he makes his debut on the show.
