Love Island’s Adam Collard has hit back at Jacques O’Neill’s snide remark about his relationship with Paige Thorne after a sweet date.

Rugby player Jacques couldn’t resist giving the pair a jab during an Instagram Live with Luca Bish on Sunday, where he sarcastically said: “They seem to get along really well, they seem very happy together.”

Luca then chimed in, saying in a mocking tone, “I’m glad the mom agrees,” to which his co-star quipped, “Yeah, well, her mom seems to really like Adam, you know.”

But it seems Adam, having a romantic ice cream date with Paige in the middle of Jacques’ booth, has the last laugh.

In a tweet from an unofficial Twitter account apparently run by the personal trainer, he replied: “Humbled in defeat our kid cheer up x”

Of course, Love Island fans will remember how Jacques left the ITV2 show after struggling with his mental health in the wake of Casa Amor.

The professional rugby player spent days trying to win back his partner Paige after it was revealed he was kissed Cheyanne Kerr during Casa Amor week.

But shortly after Jacques wrote a cringeworthy apology letter, Adam, who had previously appeared in the show’s fourth season, returned dramatically and immediately played for Paige.

Jacques then left the mansion after an explosive head-to-head, and it wasn’t long before Paige and Adam got back together.

They soon became exclusive before being kicked out of the villa just before the finale.

Reflecting on whether she would have gone with Jacques, Paige previously admitted, “It kind of crossed my mind going with him, but things weren’t 100% done, and the fact that she wasn’t was what got me thinking.

“The fact that I stayed and gave myself 100% into the experience and found something new and something more appropriate for me just goes to show that everything happens for a reason.”

Love Island can be caught up on the ITV Hub.
