On Instagram, Theo captioned an image of him lying in a hospital bed with his right eye bandaged next to girlfriend Kaz Crossley, by saying: "Thanks for all the messages and support I’ve got over the last couple days they’re all very much appreciated!

"So yeah basically 2 eye surgeries later after a really unfortunate accident, I’ve lost all vision in my right eye as it got split in half, who would have thought a champagne cork would be the end of me.

"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."
