Women's Aid has issued a warning ahead of Adam Collard returning to Love Island

They also released a statement about him in 2018.

Women's Aid has issued a statement and warning to ITV ahead of Adam Collard's return to Love Island tonight.


The season four contestant is making his comeback to the villa tonight after making a name for himself in 2018 due to the sheer chaos he made on the show.

His time on the 2018 show brought with it a lot of controversies after he was accused of emotional abuse and gaslighting.

At the time, Women's Aid issues a warning for women regarding "abusive relationships" in the aftermath of Adam's time on the show.

After it was teased on Sunday night that he would be returning, the charity has yet again insisted that producers get involved if the relationships in the villa become unhealthy.


In a statement to Metro.co.uk, Teresa Parker, head of communications and media relations, said: "In the 2018 series of Love Island, we saw Rosie rightly call out Adam for his unacceptable behaviour, which included gaslighting and emotional abuse.

"We hope that ITV recognise how serious this issue is and that it must be learned from, considering they have asked Adam to return to the show."

Adding that the show has a huge influence on it's younger audience, Parker said: "Producers must make sure there is support for contestants throughout, and intervene if relationships become unhealthy or abusive."


Adam is deemed the "ultimate bombshell", saying he is going to "ruffle a few feathers" when he enters the villa.

Adam was originally coupled up with Kendall Knight on the 2018 series before dumping her for Rosie Williams. He then dumped Rosie for Zara McDermott before having his head turned in Casa Amor for Darylle Sargeant and then getting back with Zara on the outside for eight months.

It was when he dumped Rosie that Women's Aid initially sent out a statement as they said at the time: "In a relationship, a partner questioning your memory of events, trivialising your thoughts or feelings, and turning things around to blame you can be part of pattern of gaslighting and emotional abuse.

"Last night, Rosie called out Adam’s unacceptable behaviour on the show. We ask viewers to join her in recognising unhealthy behaviour in relationships and speaking out against all forms of domestic abuse – emotional as well as physical.


"It is only when we make a stand together against abuse in relationships that we will see attitudes change and an end to domestic abuse."
