Love Island’s Theo Campbell suing Ibiza beach resort after nearly going blind from champagne cork

Love Island star Theo Campbell is suing an Ibiza beach resort after nearly going blind from a flying champagne cork.

The 2017 contestant, 29, was partying at a champagne spray party at O Beach Ibiza when one of the club's official bottles popped in his direction in August 2019.

He suffered a penetrating cornea injury and required 11 stitches after surgery in Ibiza and the UK, but is still suffering severe sight issues.

The reality star and Great Britain runner says the incident has significantly reduced his ability to work, and is seeking answers as to why his sight has never fully recovered.

Theo said: "The last 15 months or so trying to come to terms with what has happened have been hard.

"I'm a positive person and try and remain upbeat but as time goes on the chances of my sight getting back to normal become reduced.

"I'm speaking with doctors about what may or may not be possible but I also have a number of questions about what happened to me.

"I don't know what the future may hold with regards to my sight but I feel that the least I deserve is answers to what happened and why.

"Bringing this case was something that hasn't been done lightly but I feel that at present it's the best opportunity for me to get the answers I deserve."

Theo is being represented by Irwin Mitchell who have launched High Court proceedings against Ice Mountain Ibiza SL, the company which trades as O Beach Ibiza.

Demetrius Danas, an international serious injury expert at Irwin Mitchell representing, Theo said: "The seriousness of Theo’s injury should not be underestimated.

"He was in hospital in Ibiza for five days where he underwent surgery twice.

"Since his return to the UK, Theo has undergone further operations.

"Despite the best efforts of all the surgeons involved in Theo's care he still suffers sight issues and his condition continues to affect him every day.

"His injuries have meant that he has been unable to work as much as he would normally, and his quality of life has deteriorated.

"Organisers of events such as these have a legal duty to ensure the safety of customers.

"Through our investigations we believe there was insufficient safety advice provided to customers at the club as well as a failure to recommend or provide protective eyewear.

"Theo has a number of concerns about what happened and has asked us to investigate.

"Theo would rather not be in this position but he feels he's been left with no choice other than to bring these proceedings.

"We now call on Ice Mountain to work with us to resolve Theo’s case so he can try and put what happened behind him the best he can."
