Adam Collard of Love Island attacked by thugs in a bar who ripped his shirt

Adam Collard was attacked by a group of men who ripped his shirt off while he was out with girlfriend Paige Thorne in Newcastle on Tuesday night.

The Love Island star, who returned for the 2022 series after her first appearance in 2018, was enjoying a low-key night out with Paige and her friend.

Adam, 26, was seen putting on a brave face after the altercation as he stepped out with Paige, 24, after lunch on Wednesday afternoon.

A bystander claims a group of thugs spotted 26-year-old Adam and started behaving aggressively towards Adam and even ripped his top off.

Video obtained by the Sun shows Adam defending himself during the altercation and one of his friends rushing in to try to help.

Bouncers were also seen trying to break up the row which took place at the Market Shaker bar in the city centre.

A clubber told the publication: ‘It happened shortly after midnight. Adam and Paige were just one night, it wasn’t an official appearance or anything.

“Everyone was trying to rush him and I think they were trying to rush Paige and Adam wasn’t happy at all, which was understandable.

“Then people started ripping her top off and it all started.” It’s no surprise that he wanted to defend himself and also took care of Paige.

A spokesperson for Adam said of the fight in the bar: ‘Adam was trying to have a quiet night in his hometown with friends when a large group of men began aggressively harassing them.

“Despite several attempts to defuse the situation, the men continued to become more aggressive and began physically attacking Adam.

Speaking on ITV’s Lorraine, she said: “I also have a meeting to get back to paramedic work so that will be exciting.” In fact, I saw an ambulance the other day with sirens on.

‘I had like severe FOMO! I was like, ‘Give me back my ambulance!’ So I’m going to come back to that a bit and see what opportunities arise from it.

“It’s one of those things – I really love my job. So why wouldn’t I want to go back? I really enjoyed it. But I’ll do other things on the side.
