But despite having a picture-perfect relationship the couple have decided to call it quits after eight months together. Here’s what we know.
Have Zara and Adam Collard broken up?
The Sun revealed that Zara and Adam had called it quits after eight months together on the February 11, 2019.
The Love Island pair split following crisis talks over Adam’s wild partying with Jack Fincham, Sam Bird and Instagram model Brittany Archer.
A source close to the couple said: “Adam and Zara have spent the last week having furious arguments.
“There’s still so much love between them but they have decided for the moment that it’s best to go their separate ways.
“They were due to go on a romantic holiday to the Maldives together this week but will no longer be going.
“They did their best to work through their issues but at this stage there’s no going back. They have since unfollowed each other on Instagram.”
In an exclusive chat with The Sun Online after the split, Zara revealed their relationship had been rocky for months and that they even slept in separate beds.
Zara said: “We’ve had our ups and downs. There are peaks and troughs in every relationship and we wanted people to understand our relationship is not plain sailing.
“It might look like it is on Instagram, but it’s like any normal relationship.
“It’s good to open up about it. We’ve gone through a lot of stuff.”
Zara added: “He still spends 50 per cent of his time up in Newcastle.
“Our apartment is where we stay when we’re together, but when he’s up in Newcastle I go home to my parents instead of sitting in on my own.”
In a statement on Instagram, Zara wrote: “I am heartbroken to announce that Adam and I have parted ways.
“I love him very much and will always have a special place in my heart for him and our time spent together.
“I have tried so hard to be the best person I can possibly be and to make it work.
“Sometimes in life, you just aren’t enough for someone; no matter what do for them or how much you try to me. For everyone asking if I’m OK, I don’t know that I am.
“But I know that soon I will be. I will be strong and prove to myself that I can get through this.”
So far Adam hasn’t commented on their split.
After he posted a topless selfie on Instagram, Zara responded by liking comments from fans urging them to get back together.
She also posted a pic of herself on Instagram captioned “keep smiling.”
Who else has Adam Collard dated?
Adam has had a string of beauties on his arm over the years.
Before heading into the villa Adam dated Claudia Proctor who he had even whisked away to Bali.
Speaking about their relationship he said: “It was a lot of insecurities on her end. We had our differences.
“I get quite a bit of attention because of the way I look and Instagram is a big thing. The amount of messages I get on socials from people asking ‘can you train me?’
“It’s me training half naked in just shorts but if you knew that’s what I did a year a go why is it now an issue so far down the line? She would ask why girls would like my photos and say ‘is that client ever weird with you?’”
In the villa Adam first set eyes on Kendall Rae-Knight before dumping her for Rosie Williams.
But his romance with Rosie was short-lived after Zara entered the villa and he made a beeline for her despite Rosie having just performed a sex act on him.
Rosie even made a stark warning to Zara about the cad, and after the couple broke up Rosie reiterated that Zara was better off without him.
After Zara was dumped from the villa, Adam soon cracked on with tattooed Darylle Sargeant, leaving Zara heartbroken.
But he then had a change of heart and decided Zara was ultimately the one he wanted to be with.
