Faye Winter reveals she was a 'step-mum' for five years before Teddy Soares romance

Faye Winter has dropped an almighty pre-Love Island bombshell in a candid admission about her previous relationships.

The star who found fame on the programme back in 2021 ultimately found love with fellow Islander Teddy Soares before they split earlier this year.

However, before entering the stunning Majorca villa, Faye, 27, had a string of unsuccessful relationships but one almost went the full way.

The Exeter-born star admitted that her ex-boyfriends are "d***heads" and later went on to discuss one relationship in a lot more detail.

But while Faye admits her exes aren't the best, she wouldn't rule out speaking to them and doesn't hold any grudges.

"My first boyfriend, of five years," Faye said before going on to add: "I was a step-mum for five years, at 18 'til 23.

"I actually used to do the school run on my own and got a lovely car out of it, perfect," she explained to TikTok star GK Barry on her YouTube series, Saving Grace.

While reflecting on the relationship, Faye explained to the internet star that her ex-boyfriend had plans to pop the question and ask her to marry him.

Faye said: "He bought the engagement ring, told my sister he was going to propose in the July, we broke up in the January, and then he used my ring [to propose to someone else]."

But after bumping into her ex and his new fianceé, Faye made the decision to talk to them and ensure there is no bad blood between the trio.

Elsewhere, Faye opened up about the breakdown of her relationship with Teddy following allegations that he had been unfaithful – although there is no evidence to suggest he was.

Host Grace Barry said: "I saw a video online of 'he who shall not be named' that you dated. Opinions? Thoughts? Want to chat about it?"

Faye then asked: "Do you want to elaborate on the video? You've probably seen one that I've not seen yet."

"It was of him getting in a car with some girls," Grace said.

The Love Island star responded: "I feel like there is always three sides to the truth. His truth, her truth and the truth. I wasn't personally there so I can't… And I'm still finding things out literally until a couple of months ago.

"Even a few months ago, just after Christmas, there was more that came out and it's just one of those things where I’m like 'what do you believe, what don't you believe'.

"On social media, it's really hard and I think you don't want to believe sh*t, you want to see the good in people, you want to really believe that he wouldn't do it."

She then dropped a bombshell: "But I'll never know, I wasn't there in that hotel room."
