Love Island’s Theo left blinded in one eye by flying champagne cork

His right eye was ‘split in half’


Theo Campbell has been left partially blinded after a flying champagne cork split his right eye in half.

The 28-year-old was taken to hospital and underwent two rounds of surgery, he told his fans today.

The former Islander had been on holiday in Ibiza with his girlfriend Kaz Crossley, and shared a photo of the two of them in hospital together:

In an Instagram post, Theo wrote: "Thanks for all the messages and support I’ve got over the last couple days they’re all very much appreciated.

"So yeah basically two 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 one eye left, looking at the bright side of things. Thanks for flying out to look after me as well babe. if anyone knows where sells cool eye patches let me know."

A source told OK! Online: "Theo was on holiday in Ibiza enjoying himself when someone popped a bottle of Champagne and the cork flew into his eye.

"People were screaming when they realised what happened and saw the state of his eye. One of the guys said it looked like his eye had exploded.

"Theo was taken to hospital and we haven't heard from him since. Kaz flew out to see him and will be staying with him until he's able to leave and go back to England."

Theo's show buddy Marcel commented: "Ah bro sorry to hear this news, everything will be bless g, mad things happen in life but we roll with the punches. Mans jus got a new niche fashion accessory to rock."
