Adam Collard has broken silence on ‘cheating’ rumors and attest that he’s still dating Paige Thorne
After having left the famous villa in August, the couple, who showed up on both seasons four and eight of Love Island, became official.
“Adam headed to McDonald’s after a night out with friends”. Adam’s representative told The Sun.
“His friends were alongside him when a group of girls asked for photos and Adam being his friendly self was open to posing and chatting to the girls, alongside other fans who wanted to chat in the same video.”
“Adam understands how this video looks but wants to state that he left the restaurant with his friends and a box of 60 nuggets (with nothing or no one else) with the intention of getting home safely.”
“Adam and Paige are currently dating and Adam only has eyes for her.”
During his first stint in the villa, Adam was a divisive figure, with some of his scenes raising concerns among executives at domestic abuse charity Women’s Aid.
Adam had an explosive argument with his then-partner Rosie Williams, during which he was widely chastised by viewers for smirking throughout the argument and later leaving her in hysterical tears.
Katie Ghose, Chief Executive of Women’s Aid, expressed concern about Adam’s actions, which saw him move on to Zara, saying: “On the latest series of Love Island, there are clear warning signs in Adam’s behavior.”
Speaking on FUBAR radio with Bobby Norris and Stephen Leng, the ex-candidate admitted that she “didn’t even know” who the bombshell was, despite being warned by the other girls in the villa that he was a “massive player.”
‘They gave me the lowdown and they were rinsing him, proper giving me the insights on what he used to be like,’ she continued.
‘Then I was like, “Well, if he was like that then what is he doing in here? He’s just going to be a little s**t stirrer. I was going off.”‘
However, the paramedic, who was paired with Jacques O’Neill prior to his departure, revealed that producers had approached her to persuade her to give Adam a chance.
‘I got pulled aside and they [producers] were like, “Paige why are you already writing him off before you’ve had a chance?”‘ she added.
‘I was like because of what the girls have been saying. I don’t need to have a chat with him to know there’s not going to be a difference.”
‘And they were like, “No, be open-minded and just talk to him and give him a chance.” I was just like, “What is the point, he’s just going to be a massive player I’m not in here for a player, I’m here for something serious.”
Speaking of their relationship, Paige added: ‘It’s been so good. This boy, I promise you, he’s simping and it’s great, I love it. We see each other when we’ve got time off.
‘Obviously, I’m living in Swansea and he’s in Newcastle and when we are away, we just keep in touch and text and whatever. But then what we tend to do when we come together, is have proper quality time. So, it works really well in our favour.’
‘Me and Adam know where we stand with each other, we know where we are at, we know what we’re feeling, and we’re just not really bothered about anyone else’s opinions.’
