Love Island’s Adam Collard to return to normal day job – three weeks after show

Adam Collard has returned to his job as a personal trainer just three weeks after making history as the first ever contestant to return to Love Island.

The 26 year old reality star was first on the hit ITV dating show in 2018 and made a grand return to Majorca this year, where he found love with Welsh beauty Paige Thorne, 24.

Following his second stint on the programme, it appears Adam has been dying to return to his job in Newcastle as he took to his Instagram to promote his gym.

Working out in a clip where he could be seen wearing nothing but a pair of grey shorts, Adam said: "Riding that wave but the mission remains the same… I love this game for the physical, the mental and helping so many people along the way.

"Let’s get better together."

Many of his 1.2million fans were quick to comment, gushing over his physique as one said: "If I could like this twice I would," with a fire emoji.

Another shared: "Need Adam collard as my PT x," as a third posted: "Mans winning in life haha". While a fourth added: "Always laser focused despite life’s rollercoaster – I love it".

Adam's return to work comes after he and Paige announced they are now officially boyfriend and girlfriend after coming fourth in this year's series of Love Island.

In an interview with Jodie McCallum for On Demand Entertainment, the Geordie hunk explained he wanted to ask Paige off camera so that she knew “everything was real".

“We got left for a night and it was the only time where we actually got to sit on the sofa, it was just us for the first time, and I was like, ‘Right I need to ask you now, because it’s not for anyone else’s benefit apart from mine and yours," he said. "'Like I do really want you to be my girlfriend.’ I didn’t even ask her – I actually just told her!”

Laughing, Paige echoed: “No he just told me!”

“I just said, ‘Wait, so this is a thing now, please!” joked Adam before saying he feels like he's "won" as he reflected on his second run on the show.

It hasn’t been completely smooth sailing. In the Meet The Parents episode, viewers saw Paige’s mum, Samantha, express her doubts that Adam was genuine, yet that has all been resolved now that he has been down to Swansea to meet the whole family.

“They made me feel really welcome,” Adam said.

He added: “Her mum came straight up to us and was like, ‘You know what I probably believed and read a few too many press articles and stuff like that,’ but we were dancing on the tables with her Nana within half an hour!”
