Zara McDermott shocked as ex-boyfriend Adam Collard returns to Love Island

Joining the line up at just 22-years-old, Adam entered as part of a twist where he could steal the girlfriend from another boy.

He first dated Kendall Rae-Knight, who he swiftly dumped a week later for bombshell Rosie Williams.

Adam and Rosie stayed together until day 20, when Zara McDermott walked in as a new bombshell and they coupled up.

The pair were split when Zara was unexpectedly dumped from the island, with Adam then going on to get cosy with Darylle Sargeant during Casa Amor week.

But he ultimately decided that he wanted to make things work with Zara on the outside world and the pair continued to date.

Why did Adam Collard and Zara McDermott split?

Adam Collard and Zara McDermott broke up in February 2019, with Zara saying at the time: “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 and 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.”

It's not clear why the pair parted ways, but at the time it was reported Adam dumped his girlfriend of seven months by text, saying that the relationship wasn’t working.
