Fans are shocked by the return of the controversial Love Island UK season 4 contestant, Adam Collard. Back in season 4, the 26-year-old personal trainer and gym director from Newcastle received a lot of backlash from fans. During his original stint, he caused the most considerable controversy when he was coupled up with Rosie Williams. After being together for only a few days, Adam ditched Rosie to date newcomer Zara McDermott. When Rosie tried to call him out, he claimed it was all in Rosie's head.
Adam’s toxic behavior even caught the attention of the domestic abuse charity Women's Aid, which issued a warning about signs of gaslighting and emotional abuse after witnessing Adam and Rosie’s confrontation. Because Adam is perhaps the most controversial character in Love Island UK history, some fans are worried that his former behavior will be repeated this season. However, many chaos-loving viewers are also excited as they know that he will shake up the villa and is not afraid to ruin anyone’s relationships. Given Adam’s reputation, fans had plenty to say about the shocking return of the iconic Love Island "villain".SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Fan, GreenTeaYoga, started a Reddit thread asking for fans' opinions on the surprise bombshell, commenting, "Adam f*cking Collard whaaaaat???? What are your thoughts????". Another Redditor Lingardinhooo, said, "I'm actually buzzing. One of, if not the, biggest f*ck boys to grace Love Island." It seems that fans are more than ready for the upcoming havoc that Adam's arrival will wreak. Additionally, user Admirable_Science279 brought up the viewers’ criticism of the Love Island season 8 male cast and how their behavior now pales in comparison to Adam's actions:
Back on Love Island season 4, Adam also attracted a lot of attention with his muscular appearance. Many fans have pointed out that although Adam may not be their favorite Islander, he will certainly appeal to the women in the villa. When the surprise bombshell was first introduced, Adam’s face was not initially revealed. However, many fans instantly recognized him for his figure. Redditor gowlbags commented, "WHY DID I RECOGNIZE HIM FROM HIS ABS IM SO MAD AT MYSELF." Judging by the fans' comments, the Newcastle resident was well remembered by Love Island fans for his tattoos and impressive physique.
Now that one of Love Island UK's most notorious contestants is back for round two, fans can only hope that he has learned something since his last visit to the villa. While viewers are looking forward to the juicy drama ahead, they don't want to witness Adam’s toxic behavior all over again. It remains to be seen whether the controversial personal trainer will show signs of growth compared to his outrageous behavior in season 4.
