Just days after leaving the Love Island villa, Adam Collard has sparked split rumours between his girlfriend Paige Thorne as he was seen getting stuck into a boozy night out with his former Island co-star Wes Nelson.
The 26 year old Northerner headed home to the UK earlier this week as season eight of the popular ITV dating show drew to a close.
However just days after arriving back on home soil, Adam was spotted on a wild night out with his former co-star in Newcastle, rather than spending time with his new flame Paige.
Taking to Instagram to document his night out, Adam kicked things off by sharing a selfie alongside some of his best friends as they enjoyed a well earned drink together after several weeks apart while he filmed the show in Mallorca.
However in a cheeky twist, the star then went on to reveal that his former co-star Wes Nelson had also made an appearance as he announced: “Guess what, guess what, guess what. I just ran into someone random! Wooo! Do you know what I mean? You know what I mean. This is a little superstar!”
Laughing, Wes could be seen roped into a hug as he dubbed his friend: “You’re a menace. The menace returns!”
Updating fans on the unexpected arrival, Adam also went on to share a selfie of his drinking buddy toasting his arrival alongside the caption: “Surprise from the one and only last night @wesnelson”
Both Adam and Wes appeared on the fourth series of Love Island together back in 2018, with their friendship still enduring four years later.
Yet Adam’s night out hasn’t been without its controversy, as many fans expected the star to be spending time getting to know his new girlfriend Paige after the two coupled up together in the Love Island villa.
Keen to knock the rumours on the head, Adam recently addressed any split claims during an Instagram Q&A after a fan commented on the lack of sightings together.
“Are you and Paige still together?” They enquired.
To which Adam promptly replied: “I bloody hope so since I’m seeing her tomorrow! Course we are, I can’t wait just family comes first x.”
Paige and Adam first hit it off after his arrival in the villa during week 5, with the two rapidly getting to know each other as sparks began to fly.
Coupling up together, the duo soon fell head over heels, even going so far as to become exclusive with each other during their final days on the show.
