Love Island fans raging as ‘villain’ Adam Collard is first star to re-join show

Love Island has sparked a furious backlash from fans after it was announced Adam Collard was making an explosive return to the villa.

The 26-year-old personal trainer is the first former contestant to ever re-enter the villa during a different series.

He first appeared on series four of the ITV2 dating show back in 2018, but fans slammed the way he treated the ladies in the villa – some even labelled him a "gaslighter".

Narrator Iain Stirling said: "Tomorrow night… he's back."

Upon his return to the show, Adam said: "I'm going to ruffle a few feathers when I go in."

But it clearly divided fans, with some excited to see him shake up the villa and others fuming that he had been allowed back.

One viewer complained: "Not enough toxic men in there eh? They just had to bring Adam back."

Collard caused controversy during the 2018 series during his feuds with then-partner Rosie Williams and Zara McDermott.

At first, Adam was paired up with Kendall Rae-Knight before he ditched her for Rosie and later moved on with Zara.

Viewers blasted him for smirking during his infamous row with Rosie which left her in tears and some fans calling him emotionally abusive.

The trainer later claimed the scene was taken out of context, and that he was smirking as the conversation went on for ages and he couldn't get a word in.

His appearance sparked a public statement from Women's welfare charity Women's Aid, who urged viewers to recognise the warning signs in Adam's behaviour.

After the show, Adam continued dating Zara McDermott before they broke up after eight months.

Zara is now in a relationship with Made In Chelsea alum Sam Thompson.

Love Island airs nightly at 9pm on ITV2 and on ITV Hub.
