The star admitted it happened when he removed his sunglasses for a few seconds, after an excited fan approached him with a bottle ready to blow.
He said: ‘Walking through there was champagne sprayed, 100 bottles going off, and someone sprayed champagne under these glasses in my eye. I’m trying to get the champagne out of my eye, and within a split second, some girls in front of me got a bottle down by her waist, it was a perfect bullseye shot hits me clean in the eye, and that’s how easy it was.
‘I took my glasses off for a second. I knew straight away and put my hand down and nobody really saw I was in agony, I couldn’t open my eyes, I was too scared and I had blood in my hand. Then I got rushed to hospital now I’m here.
‘The main part that scared me I went straight into theatre, he said ”mate don’t worry about seeing again we’re trying to save your eye.” Simple as that really. It can happen to anyone. I’ve never broken a bone, I’ve never spent a night in hospital.’

Theo then reiterated his previous point that there is a chance his sight could return, saying: ‘We’re going to see if its repairable, I’ve got seven stitches in my eyeball at the moment. I got 20-10 vision. The only thing its hard is putting toothpaste on toothbrush.
‘It might be able to recover. If I can’t see anything in four weeks then I’ll panic and cry. Hopefully this is another comeback, thanks for all the love and support it’s been overwhelming.’
Kaz also revealed that she and Theo are yet to fly home to the UK, as the pressure of an aeroplane could cause even more damage before it’s healed.

Kaz’s full post read: ‘It’s been a hard 24 hours no one here speaks English and he was taken for hours at one point and I had no clue he was in surgery again.

The meme, which originally surfaced in 2015, is commonly posted among social media followers and generally used to either convey surprise or take a subtle dig.
