Love Island lothario Adam Collard was booted out of the villa last week after his fellow islander Georgia opted to save Sam over him and Alex in a brutal shock recoupling. He lasted just a week longer than Zara, the girl he connected with the strongest during his stay despite the fact he moved on pretty quickly with tattooed Darryle in Casa Amor. Zara admitted on After Sun that she was upset with his behaviour, but was choosing to wait for him because she believed what they had was real and 'she had found love'. Yikes. Since leaving the villa, Adam and Zara have reunited and one eagle-eyed Twitter user spotted the pair standing outside a pub together on their phones looking slightly uncomfortable - could Rosie be the reason why?
Rumours had been swirling that Adam and Rosie had re-connected since his exit from the villa and were texting secretly behind Zara's back. Adam, after professing his love for her on TV (despite accidentally calling her Rosie) decided to share the 'secret texts' with fans on Twitter to prove that he wasn't hiding anything. The screen shots of WhatsApp seem to show the pair having a friendly but neutral conversation and agreeing to put the past behind them and move forward as friends. Rosie wrote: "No hard feelings anyways - I definitely want us to be friends. We did have fun when we weren't bickering haha" and Adam responded "Yeah it's always best get on now for coming out and all the press."

Disregarding Adam clearly indicating that the press aspect of their feud was on his mind, and pretty much the only reason he was talking to her, Rosie wrote back: "Regardless of the press I never wanted us to argue the way we did anyways. I always wanted us to be friends. I have missed all you lot mind! It's weird not being with everyone everyday! We'll catch up soon though. Enjoy the madness ha." Fans pointed out that Rosie's messages were a lot warmer than Adam's, and included kisses as a sign of affection where Adam was quite short and cool with the bombshell. One fan responded "You can tell she still likes you." Let's hope Zara can't tell.
