Adam Collard and Zara McDermott have become the latest couple from the latest series of Love Island to call time on their romance.
A source has revealed exclusively to MailOnline that the photogenic twosome, who met in the show’s Spanish villa in the summer, have split after eight months together.
And on Monday afternoon, brunette beauty Zara, 23, confirmed the news of her split from Adam, 22, taking to Instagram to share a post which read: ‘I am heartbroken to announce that Adam and I have parted ways.
It’s over: Adam Collard and Zara McDermott have split after eight months together, a source has exclusively revealed to MailOnline
‘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.’
Breaking point: Just days ago, Adam and Zara were said to be ‘on the rocks’ over his recent night out with Instagram model Brittany Archer, according to The Sun
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.
Last week, Zara took to Instagram to share a defiant snap of herself hand-in-hand with Adam, adding a heart emoji to the picture.
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 last week.
Brittany – no stranger to a scantily clad social media snap – boasts 19,000 followers on Instagram, and regularly posts updates around her latest shoots and holidays.
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 has reportedly travelled back to Newcastle for a break, but he and Zara have not split.
A source said: ‘As a girlfriend it isn’t always comfortable to see your partner partying with other women you don’t know.
‘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.

MailOnline previously contacted representatives for Adam Collard, Brittany Archer and Zara McDermott for comment.
