I was afraid I would go into a dangerous state of mind after Love Island

LOVE Island star Faye Winter has opened up about the negative side of reality TV – she insists you have to be “very strong” to survive.

The 26-year-old admits she feared falling into a “very dangerous state of mind” and “losing herself” after leaving the villa.

But luckily for Faye, she was surrounded by loyal friends and family — as well as boyfriend Teddy Soares.

She also returned as a volunteer for guide dogs – eager to “stay true to herself” after rising to fame.

“It was a whirlwind,” Faye said in an exclusive interview with The Sun.

“I would be lying if I said everything is always fine.

“You must be very strong. I’m very fortunate to have an incredible support network.

“I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t hard.

“I used to have so much consistency in my life, but now I don’t have a routine and I’ve moved into a whole different area.

“All my friends and family are down in Devon. I don’t have anyone close by to say, ‘Oh, would you like to go out for a glass of wine or a cup of tea?’

“Me and Teddy live together 24 hours a day – which isn’t a bad thing – but I’m trying to have a brand new relationship.

“I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t hard sometimes.

“I think everyone expects you to come off Love Island and everything’s pink and everyone’s singing and dancing, but it’s not.

“People need to talk about how leaving can be very, very difficult. You have to allow yourself to adapt.

“I found it easier to do things I’m really passionate about.

“A lot of Love Islanders come out and sign all these brand deals. I’m not interested. You could get into a very dangerous state of mind if you just do that.”

Faye was recently made one Campaign star for guide dogs and fosters puppies when their work schedule allows.

She also takes the budding puppies on dog walks and helps spread awareness for the charity.

“I was afraid that if I left Love Island, a part of me would be lost,” Faye admits.

“When you have that platform, some try to get every deal they can.

“I have decided to stay true to my roots and continue to work with Guide Dogs.

“There are so many roles to help with. Many people think that the only way to give back is to spend money on it. But there are so many ways to help through volunteering.”

Faye won the jackpot when she left the mansion with fame, money and a model boyfriend.

But she insists she would give up her new lifestyle in a heartbeat if it risked her relationship with Teddy.

“Me and Teddy always say as long as our relationship is good, nothing else matters,” Faye added.

“I want my relationship to be the most important thing. If me and Teddy started going down the drain, I would quit jobs to make our relationship work.

“He’s my number one fan. I couldn’t do this without him. Teddy supports every dream I have and I support every dream he has.”

Guide Dogs has 14,000 volunteers doing 23,500 tasks and providing around 13 million hours of support each year.

In 2020, community fundraisers helped the charity raise £4million.
