Theo Campbell, a former Love Island UK star has gone blind in one eye after an unfortunate accident with a champagne cork.

The star took to social media to thank all of his fans for their support and says that he is being optimistic about his future.

"Thanks for all the messages and support I've got over the last couple days they're all very much appreciated," he wrote, alongside a photo of him with a patch over his eye while laying in a hospital bed. His girlfriend was also in the pic.

"So yeah basically 2 eye surgeries later after a really unfortunate accident, I've lost all vision in my right eye as it got split in half, who would have thought a champagne cork would be the end of me.."

"But I still have 1 eye left, looking at the bright side of things," he continued. "Thanks for flying out to look after me as well babe ♥️♥️♥️ if anyone knows where sells cool eye patches let me know :)"
