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.

Taking to Instagram earlier today, the athlete explained how he split his eye in half after an accident while on holiday in Ibiza.

He posted a picture of himself in a hospital bed with Love Island star Kaz and he could be seen sporting a large patch over his eye. ‘Thanks for all the messages and support I’ve got over the last couple days they’re all very much appreciated!’ he wrote in the caption.

The reality star continued: ‘But I still have 1 eye left, looking at the bright side of things. Thanks for flying out to look after me as well babe. if anyone knows where sells cool eye patches let me know :). #captinhook #thor #fettywap. [sic]’
