There was one peculiar and simply silent character that emerged over the 20-episode series of Celebs Go Dating. His name was Teddy.
In the final two episodes of the E4 dating show and popstar Tallia Storm was introduced to a bloke named Teddy during a three-person date and dash scenario.
Despite saying very little, Tallia decided to jet Teddy with her for the grand finale in Cape Verde.
Here, Ted said even less.
Basically, Teddy got himself a free holiday to Cape Verde, knowing he just had to put up with Tallia Bitch Face Storm for a few hours. #CelebsGoDating

Who is this man? What was going through his head?
Teddy Is Not A Cuddly Bear
When Tallia first met Teddy, a mountaineer and travel freelancer (whatever the hell that is) the 25-year-old was shy, quiet and reserved, giving literally nothing away about his personality.
Weirdly, however, Tallia “digged it”.
She said to Teddy: “I quite like that you’ve not handed this to me on a plate, do you know what I mean by that?”
Of course, Teddy just sort of shrugged and grunted to that question before Tallia went on to explain that T-bear “couldn’t care less if they saw each other again” and that she “quite liked that.”
Teddy Slops His Honey
During the first date and Teddy turned on the charm by explaining how he had thrown on any old outfit, had rushed to the date from work, and in fact had a stain on his jeans.

Teddy Goes On Holiday
Despite what would have been noted as a catastrophe of a first date by most people, Tallia soon packed her Teddy onto a plane to Cape Verde.
Yep, Tallia had clicked with so few people across the 18 episodes that she took Teddy to the grand finale. It was only going to end in tears.
Teddy came all the way to Cape Verde to give Tallia a taste of her own medicine. Being rude to people all the time…karma bit her. Love it #CelebsGoDating

Even in the beautiful sunshine and at a luxurious hotel, Teddy seemed unable or unwilling to relax. He was spotted by voiceover comedian Rob Beckett hiding in the corner of the resort.
And when Teddy finally had the chance to chat with Tallia he cut yet another awkward figure – the pair had the most uncomfortable chemistry!

No Picnic For Teddy
On the day of the grand finale and Tallia made one last attempt at trying to bleed some fun from the robust stone that was Teddy.
She had no luck.
Eventually, Tallia decided to roll up to the final party on her own rather than drag her little Teddy bear with her.
Feeling so overwhelmed by all of the love after tonight's finale of @CelebsGoDating ❤️ Here's to #GirlPower #FemaleEmpowerment & not settling for just any man! Thank you for being so kind everyone 🙌🏼🙌🏼💕💖💖💋💋💋
