Adam Collard’s love life – Zara McDermott split, Love Island row and TOWIE fling

Love Island fans were delighted last night (July 11, 2022), after former villa resident Adam Collard made a dramatic return to the series.

Personal trainer Adam rose to fame on the popular ITV2 dating series, becoming known for his many couplings during his stint on the programme.

However, he also found love outside the villa with one of his fellow islanders too, with many fans left devastated after he and Zara McDermott broke up in 2019.

Since then, Adam has been linked to a number of stars, including a TOWIE cast member and a famous beauty influencer.

As Adam looks set to turn up the heat in the Love Island villa, Daily Star takes a look at his relationship history.

Love Island flings

Adam Collard brought lots of romantic drama to the Love Island villa when he arrived as a bombshell in 2018.

After arriving at the point where he could steal one of the girls from her boyfriend, Adam chose to couple up with Kendall Rae-Knight.

However, just one week after this shock recoupling, he decided to embark on a relationship with a new bombshell arrival – Rosie Williams.

Adam and Rosie looked likely to become one of the villa's long-lasting couples, but their coupling came to an end after the arrival of brunette bombshell and future girlfriend, Zara McDermott.

Zara and Adam quickly became a couple, but their romance was short-lived after Zara was dumped in the villa – with Adam later coupling with Darylle Sargeant during Casa Amor week.

Things between Rosie and Adam didn't end smoothly, with the Welsh beauty reportedly refusing to film the 2018 Christmas special if Adam was there.

She also had a strong reaction when she found out he was returning to the villa, writing on Instagram: "I'm just sorry we don't got popcorn," adding an unimpressed face.

With his arrival in the Love Island 2022 villa and Adam reported to be single, only time will tell which islander he will choose to couple up with this year.

True love cannot be denied and Adam Collard was determined to make his relationship with Zara McDermott work outside of the villa.

He and Zara later dated for eight months, with Adam even getting a sweet tatoo of the letter Z in tribute to his girlfriend.

Despite their sweet romance, Zara opened up to The Mirror about their relationship, saying that the couple had a few "ups and downs".

"There are peaks and troughs in every relationship and we wanted people to understand our relationship is not plain sailing.

"It might look like it is on Instagram, but it's like any normal relationship.

"It's good to open up about it. We've gone through a lot of stuff."

However, fans were still shocked when the couple announced that they had split up in 2019, with a source telling The Sun: "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."

Zara also opened up about their split on Instagram, telling fans that she was heartbroken.

"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."

Following his break-up with Zara McDermott, Adam Collard dating beauty influencer Sarah Godfrey.

The pair began dating in secret in 2019, before going official on Instagram in the same year.

However, their relationship was not meant to be and the couple split up one year later in 2020, with Adam confirming the news in a statement.

He said: "Me and Sarah are no longer together, no, but still on good terms.

"Nothing bad has happened at all. We still have mutual work interests and I want to see her do well with whatever."

TOWIE's Demi Sims

In 2020, Adam Collard was seen locking lips with The Only Way Is Essex star Demi Sims, as the two passionately embraced during a night out in London.

Their kiss came just months after Demi had split from another Love Island star – Megan Barton Hanson.

A source told The Mirror at the time: "They [Adam and Demi] were seen very close at the launch party of Sam Bird's “run to you”.

"Demi openly admits she has dated women in recent years but felt very attracted to Adam.

"And for the first time in a long time felt she would date a guy after meeting Adam Thursday evening."

However, despite being pictured in a very PDA filled moment, neither stars confirmed if they embarked on a relationship, with a source telling OK! Magazine that the two were "just friends."

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