Love Island’s Adam Collard admits he had a game plan

Two-time Love Islander Adam Collard has come clean about entering the villa with one goal in mind.

The contestant, who returned to the dating show last year after his first stint in season 4, admitted choosing "the right person" to stay in the game as long as possible.

"The thing with Love Island is I'm the only one who is willing to admit it, I would completely choose the right person to stay on the show," the personal trainer told MailOnline.

"That's why I got back on the show in my eyes, they realised I didn't care about anything," he added.

Adam, who met his ex-girlfriends Zara McDermott and Paige Thorne on the show, also reflected on how taking part in Love Island a second time was difficult.

"We all know the game. It was really hard for me the second time because I could see through everything, it is unbelievable how clear it is the second time," he said.

"It messes with your head, you almost convince yourself you like these people and then once you see the light and get back home you realise you aren't a perfect match."

He also offered his point of view about a new rule introduced on the latest season of Love Island. The contestants had to have their social media profiles "dormant" during their time on the show, which inevitably results in a lower following.

"I don't know if I would have said yes the second time if they had said that to me, because what is the point," Adam said.

"If you stay on there for more than two weeks you are going to be in the public eye, you are going to get trolled, you've got to take the rough with the smooth. You have to be thick skinned because it is horrendous.

"You are getting a few followers, if you have a business like me it's going to help amplify that and that put you in a better situation and there's going to be loads of really good opportunities afterwards," he added.

Love Island airs on ITV2, and is available via catch up on ITVX and BritBox.
