Fans of Teddy Soares will get to see a lot more of the Love Island star in his first TV gig since flying home from the villa earlier this summer
Good news for anyone missing a half-naked Teddy Soares on their television screens…
The Love Island hunk is said to have signed his first TV gig since appearing on the ITV2 show this summer – and it involves stripping off.
The Sun has reported that the 26-year-old has become the first contestant from this year’s series of the dating show to land a new primetime gig.
The reality TV star, who is dating co-star Faye Winter, has apparently signed up to appear naked in ITV show, Strictly The Real Full Monty.
Returning for a second year, the programme will see men and women come together for a Strictly Come Dancing-esque strip-tease dance performance.

it’s claimed that the financial consultant from Manchester will appear on the show alongside another Love Island favourite, Demi Jones.
Earlier this year, Demi revealed that she was battling thyroid cancer at the age of just 22..
The reality TV star underwent an operation in April 2020 to remove a golf-ball size tumour removed – leaving her with a two inch star across her neck.
Demi has previously opened up about discovering she had cancer and how she broke the news on social media before telling her family.
“When I first found out it could be cancerous, I was in shock and I was crying because I went on social media, and I shouldn’t have done that because I hadn’t even told my family yet,” she revealed on The Zeze Mills Show.
“I don’t even know why, I can’t even tell you because my head was scrambled and I was like, ‘Oh my God, guys!'”
While ITV have yet to confirm any of the famous faces taking part in this year’s Strictly The Real Full Monty, they have told audience to “expect the unexpected” from the twelve new celebrity recruits.
Speaking about the upcoming show, the channel said: “Ashley Banjo is back with a band to lead a brand-new line-up of brave celebrities ready to take the strip to a whole new level.
“Bringing old glitz and glamour to the all-new super-sized strip, this is a Monty glitter ball dance extravaganza,” the broadcaster added.
The Mirror has contacted representatives for Teddy Soares regarding the claims he is one of the contestants.
Patient Teddy won a legion of fans over the summer thanks to his handling of his and Faye’s relationship woes in the Spanish villa.
While his now-girlfriend attracted a record number of complaints to Ofcom during one of their arguments, viewers of the ITV2 show praised Teddy for his calm and measured approach to disagreements.
Regarding her explosive outburst following movie night in the villa, Faye has recently admitted that she was ’embarrassed’ over the controversial scenes.
Speaking to Grazia magazine earlier this month, the 26-year-old admitted that she dealt with the situation ‘completely wrong’ and was ’embarrassed’ by her reaction.
“There were times I dealt with it completely wrongly,” she told the publication during a trip to London with partner Teddy.
“And everyone unfortunately got to see that.”
