Love Island’s Adam Collard brushes off the drama and jets off to Bali

Adam Collard brushed off the drama as he jetted off to Bali with some pals on Saturday amid speculation that he and girlfriend Paige Thorne are ‘taking a break.’

The Love Island couple have been plagued by rumours as of late after a video emerged of the personal trainer, 26, with his arm around another girl in McDonald’s.

Yet Adam appeared completely unfazed, as he flashed his toned torso and soaked up the sun in Indonesia after jetting off without his Welsh girlfriend.

Adam donned a pair of tiny Adidas shorts and shielded his eyes with some gold framed sunglasses for a relaxing dip in the pool. 

He later posed for a selfie with his pals as they headed out to the bar during their fun-filled getaway. 

The holiday comes after Adam hit out at rumours he’d been unfaithful to Paige, 24, when video emerged of him wrapping his arms around a girl in the fast food chain – insisting he left the outlet with ’60 nuggets and nothing else’.

In a recent video that emerged on social media, personal trainer Adam was spotted with his arm around another girl after ending up in McDonald’s after a boozy night out.

A source claimed to The Sun on Wednesday that Paige ‘is really upset by everything that has gone on and feels like she is being humiliated. 

‘She believes Adam didn’t do anything and knows women throw themselves at him. But it doesn’t mean she doesn’t find it difficult when people start gossiping about their relationship and share it on social media.

‘Paige had told Adam she needs a break and to spend some time away from him.’

MailOnline has contacted Paige and Adam’s representatives for comment.

Elsewhere, in photos obtained exclusively by MailOnline, Paige and Adam put on a united front as they walked hand-in-hand around London’s Canary Wharf on Wednesday afternoon. 

Dismissing reports that she had asked Adam to give her space, Paige was seen gazing up at her boyfriend as they stopped by a coffee shop close to their London hotel. 

The couple, who appeared on both season four and eight of Love Island, became official back in August after leaving the famous villa. 

Adam was a controversial figure during his first stint in the villa, with some of his scenes even sparking concerns with bosses at domestic abuse charity Women’s Aid.

Adam locked horns with his then partner Rosie Williams in an explosive confrontation, during which he was widely-criticised by viewers for smirking throughout the argument and later leaving her in hysterical tears. 

Voicing concern over Adam’s actions, which saw him move on to Zara, Katie Ghose, Chief Executive of Women’s Aid, said: ‘On the latest series of Love Island, there are clear warning signs in Adam’s behaviour.’ 

Adam was a late arrival into the villa and was initially paired with Kendall Rae-Knight before Rosie was his next partnership. 

The business owner maintained a ‘player’ reputation after his stint on the show but Paige recently revealed that the ITV producers pushed her to give him a chance.

Speaking on FUBAR radio with Bobby Norris and Stephen Leng, the former contestant confessed that she ‘didn’t even know’ who the bombshell was – despite being warned he was a ‘massive player’ by the other girls in the villa. 

She explained: ‘All the girls were like Paige this is Adam, I was like, ‘Why are you saying his name like that? I don’t know who he is.”
