Someone else fumed: ‘What is the point of Love Island? It’s a complete misnomer and a glorified con. All those ‘couples’ seem to play the game (and the viewing, paying public) for about 6 months before terminating their union! What a farce, it should be renamed ‘Fantasy Island’.’
‘So love island. You ‘fall’ in love stay together for 6 months after the show then you can part ways. Only seems like there’s 3 couples from all the series still together,’ tweeted another viewer.

A spokesperson for Love Island vehemently denied the ‘six month contract’ claims, when approached by MailOnline, stating: ‘That’s simply not true’.
MailOnline has contacted Zara McDermott and Adam Collard’s representatives for comment.
Former government adviser Zara told her Instagram followers on Monday afternoon she is ‘heartbroken’ to have parted ways from the personal trainer Adam after ‘trying so hard to make it work’ – but hinted she ‘just wasn’t enough’.
Adam and Zara’s split means only one couple from the 2018 series of Love Island remain together; show winners Dani Dyer, 23, and Jack Fincham, 27.
It’s over: Adam Collard and Zara McDermott have split after eight months together
Zara’s impassioned post read: ‘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 & 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 you do for them or how much you try to be.
‘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. Love always, Zara x.’

While Adam has yet to release a public statement on his split, the reputed Lothario hasn’t wasted any time getting back onto the social scene.
On Sunday night, he was seen out and about in his native Newcastle, cosying up a mystery brunette, while partying with a group of pals.
The musclebound hunk grinned broadly as he walked into the popular Empress Bar with his pretty companion on his arm.

Things were reportedly uncertain between the pair after a night of wild partying with Instagram model Brittany Archer according to The Sun.
A source told the publication that they were spending time apart following a huge row between the couple, after it was revealed he enjoyed the raucous evening with Brittany in Maidstone last week.
Adam and Zara were one of only two Love Island 2018 couples that are still together — along with Jack Fincham and Dani Dyer — and surprised many fans of the hit reality show with their relative longevity.
Zara was reportedly furious when she heard that Adam was on the night out with Jack and Instagram model Brittany at a hotel in Maidstone earlier this month.

The night out in question was the same time when Adam’s Love Island co-star Jack Fincham confessed he had snorted cocaine, and went onto brand it a mistake after ‘mixing in the wrong circles.’
Following an argument regarding his evening with Brittany, Adam was said to have travelled back to Newcastle for a break, days before their split was announced.
A source said at the time: ‘As a girlfriend it isn’t always comfortable to see your partner partying with other women you don’t know.
Social media: The pair were featured heavily on each other’s Instagram accounts over the past several months, as their romance blossomed and they enjoyed many a lavish getaway

‘Their fall out has come at a really bad time as they are due to fly to the Maldives next week as part of a lucrative deal.
‘They do still love each other and are trying to make their relationship work but things have not been good recently.’
The source added that the pair were trying to show that all was well in their romance by posting loved-up snaps, but their relationship remained at breaking point.
MailOnline previously contacted representatives for Adam Collard, Brittany Archer and Zara McDermott for comment.
