Love Island contestant Faye Winter has opened up on life before finding fame, revealing that before entering the villa she was a step-mum.

Before heading onto the ITV2 show with the hope of finding love, Faye was in a serious relationship with a man who had a child.

And speaking on the Saving Grace podcast, Faye opened up on what life as a young step-mum was like, explaining that she was just 18 when she took on the role.

Faye said: "My first boyfriend, of five years," Faye said before going on to add: "I was a step-mum for five years, at 18 'til 23.

"I actually used to do the school run on my own and got a lovely car out of it, perfect."

The 27 year old revealed that her ex, who she didn't name, had planned to propose and even spoke to her sister about it.

She said: "He bought the engagement ring, told my sister he was going to propose in the July, we broke up in the January, and then he used my ring [to propose to someone else]."

She said that she then did later bump into, and speak with, her ex and his fiancée, as she didn't want there to be any bad blood.

During the episode, Faye also opened up about her recent break-up from Love Island beau Teddy Soares.

Host Grace opened the conversation by saying: "I saw a video online of 'he who shall not be named' that you dated. Opinions? Thoughts? Want to chat about it?"

Faye replied asking which video was referring to, remarking: "You've probably seen one that I've not seen yet."

Grace explained that it was a video of Teddy exiting a car with a few girls, to which Faye cryptically replied: "I feel like there is always three sides to the truth. His truth, her truth and the truth.

"And I'm still finding things out literally until a couple of months ago."

Faye and Teddy announced their split earlier this years, after months of rumours when eagle-eyed fans spotted that the couple had stopped posting about each other on social media.

Faye has since moved back to Devon where her family live, while Teddy still resides in London.
