Love Island fans appeared to be unanimous on their opinion of Paige Thorne and Adam Collard’s final date. The pair were the first to get a text about their plans to leave the villa for the first of the ITV2 dating show’s ‘epic’ dates.
During Thursday night’s episode (July 28), Adam, who re-entered the series as a bombshell four years after his first Love Island stint, and Welsh paramedic Paige set sail aboard a luxury boat as they headed out of the Mallorcan villa.
During their time alone the couple discussed their feelings for each other and looked ahead to their lives outside the villa. Adam told his partner: “I tried to play it cool, it didn’t work out at all. It lasted 24 hours, if that.” Paige replied: “We’re both done playing it cool?”
Adam added: “I’m excited for you to meet the fam. I actually know they’ll love you so much. Family is a big part of me. I know what they’d feel about you anyway.” Paige then said: “I feel the same about my parents. They’ll be rooting for you for sure.”
Love Island fans were also left fuming with Paige, 24, over a comment she made hinting at her former couple in the villa. She told Adam during their sun-soaked boat trip: “Obviously, my journey started off a little bit different. But since you’ve come in I’ve been non-stop smiling.
“Even if everyone was still in the villa, it would be you out of them all, that I can see a potential future with for sure.” She added: “And I’ve just honestly enjoyed every second, ” to which Adam replied: “It just feels so normal, so natural.”
But fans couldn’t hide how they felt about the pair’s trip out. @leeesha__x__ said: “BORINGG, when do we meet the parents????” @fatz3f commented: “Such a boring date.” @zamangli echoed: “Ngl that was boring to watch.” @ethereaIpixie tweeted: “They’re just getting the most boring date out of the way first #LoveIsland.”
Others, however, could barely watch the date take place thanks to the choice of activity for Paige and Adam. @meanofseduction tweeted: “Every year I have to shut my eyes for the boat dates because they make me feel SEASICK I am truly a pathetic human #LoveIsland.” @itskatiejamess said: “I’m getting seasick watching this date #LoveIsland.”
