The Love Island 2018 couple have reportedly called it quits on their relationship
It's been a truly terrible year for Love Island couples - Wes Nelson and Megan Barton Hanson split after *that* Dancing On Ice controversy, Josh Denzel and Kaz Crossley announced their separation on Instagram, and now Zara McDermott and Adam Collard have called time on their romance.
Confirming the news on Instagram, Zara wrote: "I am heartbroken to announce that Adam and I have parted ways.
"I love him very much and will always have a special place in my heart for him & our time spent together. I have tried so hard to be the best person I can possibly be and to make it work.
"Sometimes in life, you just aren't enough for someone; no matter what you do for them or how much you try to be. For everyone asking if I'm ok, I don't know that I am. But I know that soon I will be. I will be strong and prove to myself that I can get through this. Love always, Zara x."
They reportedly ended their seven-month relationship after a series of explosive rows, and arguments over Adam Collard's partying with Sam Bird, Jack Fincham and model Brittany Archer.
A source told The Sun: "Adam and Zara have spent the last week having furious arguments.There's still so much love between them but they have decided for the moment that it's best to go their separate ways.
"They were due to go on a romantic holiday to the Maldives together this week but will no longer be going.
"They did their best to work through their issues but at this stage there's no going back. They have since unfollowed each other on Instagram."
It was reported last week that Zara wasn't happy at the idea of Adam partying with model Brittany Archer, with a source telling The Sun at the time: “As a girlfriend it isn't always comfortable to see your partner partying with other women you don’t know."
Adam and Zara got together during the last season of Love Island.
He was initially coupled up with Kendall Rae-Knight and Rosie Williams, and caused controversy after seemingly stringing along multiple women on the show.
Zara and Adam's split means the only remaining couple of Love Island 2018 is Jack and Dani.
