Love Island alum Adam Collard ruffled many feathers during his stint on the just-concluded season of the show. By the look of things, he plans to ruffle a lot more despite the show coming to an end days back, with Ekin-Su and Davide Sanclimenti emerging winners.
The bodybuilder did not fare badly either, exiting the villa right before the finals. His stint saw him flirt with co-contestant Paige Thorne, eventually winning her over and coupling up throughout his stay. However, their affair did not sit well with Paige’s mom, who made it clear she was not convinced Adam had good intentions for her daughter. Interestingly, Paige’s mom isn’t the only one unsettled by the romance between the “Love Island” alums.
Jacques O’Neill Shades “Love Island Couple Adam Conrad and Paige Thorne
Love Island 2022 viewers experienced a twist earlier when season 4 bombshell Adam Collard returned to the show and immediately set his eyes on Paige. A day later, Paige’s partner Jacques exited the series after struggling with mental health issues, promising to wait for his flame outside the show.
Unsurprisingly, Paige developed the hots for Adam, who gained a reputation as a playboy during his 2018 stint. The two coupled up soon enough, becoming exclusive, to Jacque’s disappointment. During a recent Instagram Live featuring Luca Bish, Dami Hope, and Jacques, the latter addressed a fan question asking what he thought of Adam and Paige’s relationship.
After Jacques confirmed he thought them a happy couple who got along well, Luca couldn’t help but through a little shade, saying he was glad the mom approved. His comment was a reference to Paige’s mom stating she was “not buying it” when it came time to give the lovebirds her approval. Jacques got in on the joke, adding:
“Yeah, well her mum seems really fond of Adam, so you know.”
The savage response sent the two TV personalities bursting into a feat of laughter.
Adam Collard Fires Back
The bodybuilder refused to take the mockery of his romance with Paige sitting down. Taking to Twitter on Tuesday, Adam retweeted Jacques’ comments, responding with a savage remark.
“Humble in defeat our kid, chin up x,” he wrote.
The reality star’s savage jab was a reference to his conquest of Paige Thorne right after her split from Jacques. Like the paramedic’s mom, several viewers believe the relationship between Adam Collard and his Love Island co-star was a ticking timebomb given the former’s playboy past. But the lovebirds seem to think otherwise, making their romance soar higher as they navigate their love life even after the show’s ending.
