Newcomer Teddy Soares will cause a stir in Sunday’s instalment of Love Island as the Manchester hunk, 26, enjoys speed dates with Kaz, Rachel, Sharon and Faye, all of whom are vying for his affections.
The Senior Financial Consultant is set to enjoy a string of flirtatious rendezvous on the Hideaway Terrace, with each of the girls setting their sights on the handsome newbie.
First up will be Kaz, 29, who Teddy wastes no time complimenting, saying: ‘I was a bit like, ”Woah”, when you walked through. I had to settle my nerves a little bit. Take a few deep breaths.’
Ladies’ man: Newcomer Teddy Soares will cause a stir in Sunday’s instalment of Love Island as the Manchester hunk, 26, enjoys four speed dates
Clearly taken by her date, fashion blogger Kaz retreats to the Beach Hut where she tells the camera: ‘I just went steady with Teddy, it was like the Villa gods were listening to me. I better have made a good first impression!’
Next to be swooned by Teddy is luxury travel specialist Rachel, 29, who wastes no time getting stuck in, with the topic of conversation soon turning intimate.
Rachel tells Teddy: ‘I’m very modern in my dating. I don’t think a guy should always pay, I don’t expect a guy to pull out my chair… I want a guy to be a gentleman, but I don’t want a guy to think I’m one of those girls that fully depends on them to make me happy.
‘I truly believe in life I can give myself anything I want, including an orgasm, if I’m going to go that far.’
Teddy replies: ‘You shouldn’t need to do the orgasm on your own though, surely? It should be a joint effort.’
Faye tells Teddy: ‘You’re very attractive, a very attractive man. Nice eyes, I feel like you’re staring into my soul a little bit’
Rachel then adds: ‘Well, I’m waiting on someone to come along and do that for me. Hopefully not for long that won’t be the case. It’s too sexy right now, the energy is too hot. It’s been a while since I’ve felt like this.’
Afterwards, in the Beach Hut, Rachel admits: ‘I am ready to start s***, because I want that guy.’
She adds: ‘Obviously the claws are going to come out, we’re competing for this guy.’
During their date, Civil Servant Sharon, 25, cuts to the chase as Teddy asks: ‘Do you make guys nervous then?’
Teddy tells Faye: ‘I can’t lie, I’ve not done footsie with anyone, or whatever this is… this is the first time, it’s quite cute’
Swoon: Second to be swooned by Teddy is luxury travel specialist Rachel, 29, who wastes no time getting stuck in, with the topic of conversation soon turning intimate
Sharon replies: ‘I don’t know, do I make you nervous?’ Teddy then tells her: ‘No – I’m more excited than nervous,’ prompting Sharon to admit: ‘I rate that.’
Next, Faye arrives for Teddy’s fourth and final date, with the 26-year-old Lettings Manager telling him: ‘You’re very attractive, a very attractive man. Nice eyes, I feel like you’re staring into my soul a little bit.’
And as the pair play footsie, Teddy admits: ‘I can’t lie, I’ve not done footsie with anyone, or whatever this is… this is the first time, it’s quite cute.’
Teddy has previously kept his cards close to his chest about who he’s got his eye on.
‘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 during a pre-show chat.
Teddy went on: ‘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. 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.
‘I’m cuddly, caring and 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!’
Love Island continues tonight at 10pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub. Episodes are available the following morning on BritBox.
