Love Island star Theo Campbell left his hospital bed this evening, after revealing he had lost the sight in one of his eyes after splitting it in half.

Following a rather unfortunate champagne accident which saw a cork do some damage during his holiday in Ibiza this week, Theo underwent two surgeries to try and save his sight.

He revealed this afternoon the surgery was unsuccessful and he was now blind in his right eye.

His girlfriend Kaz Crossley rushed to his bedside, and was with him as he got some air outside the Spanish hospital on Tuesday evening.

Wearing a blue Puma t-shirt and black shorts, he sported gauze over his right eye.

Joined by Kaz, who was wearing a red dress, Theo was seen with an IV drip still hanging out his arm, hinting he may still need to remain in hospital a little while longer to heal.
