‘I’m very lucky I’ve got an incredible support network. I would be lying if I said it wasn’t hard. Before I had so much consistency in my life, but now I don’t have a routine and I’ve moved to a completely different area. 

‘All my friends and family are down in Devon. I don’t have anyone near me who I could say ‘oh do you fancy going out for a glass of wine or a cup of tea?’

Faye added that her and Teddy live together ’24 hours a day’ and admitted trying to navigate a new relationship can be hard.

The beauty said it can be very hard when you first leave the villa and contestants need to allow themselves time to readjust to the world.

Faye said she only does projects she is passionate about and doesn’t jump into brand deals like other Love Islanders.  

Faye who worked as a foster carer for Guide Dogs since before her stint in the villa has continued with the role ever since. 

The brunette beauty attributed the job for keeping her grounded and humble after leaving Love Island as she feared she may end up losing herself.
