LOVE Island's Faye Winter has spoken of her secret struggle being an influencer.
The reality star's candid Instagram post comes days after boyfriend Teddy Soares jetted abroad for a lengthy trip, leaving her in tears.
Cuddling her new pet pooch on a Devon beach, Faye explained how she worries her interests don't align with what her fans want to see.
She wrote: "I want you to know that we all feel like we don’t fit in at times and we have to stop trying to compare ourselves to others, as you all know I’ve been really struggling with social, with the thought of constantly having new outfits and being in fancy places to try and keep up my engagement when that’s really not me as a person but worried that’s what everyone wants to see.
"Me as a person would rather be at home with my loved ones and pups or at the local pub. This is what makes me happiest and as I’m not your standard 'influencer' this makes me feel like I’m failing, not only myself but you all that have followed and been on my journey with me."

Teddy and Faye revealed they had got a dog, Bonnie, together at the start of this month after being forced to confirm they hadn't split up.
And the Islander said the pooch had been her world ever since.
She continued: "I want to let you see my life but worry it’s not what you want to see from me. Bonnie has been my life for 4 weeks, and this includes wearing nothing I want holes in and making sure she’s happy and trained, yet this has been the happiest 4 weeks ever! I guess I just want to thank you all for always being with me even when I’m not here a lot 🤍."
Faye recently broke down in tears as she said goodbye to Teddy at the airport along with Bonnie.

It’s likely Teddy will be on his trip for some time as he told fans: “By the time I am back home Bonnie will be so much bigger.”
The Love Island hunk could be filming Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins after we revealed he'd signed up to take part in the Channel 4 show alongside Montana Brown.
The most recent series, which is currently airing now, was filmed in Jordan and saw the cohort of celebs spend weeks taking on gruelling challenges.
An insider told The Sun: "They've done the villa but this is going to be absolutely nothing like that. The two shows are at the opposite ends of the reality TV spectrum.
"Teddy and Montana are both well aware how challenging the show is and are determined to stick it out. Don't expect either of these two to give it anything less than all they've got."
