LOVE Island’s Jacques O’Neill left villa after bombshell Adam Collard attacked his girlfriend.

It’s been a tough few days for the rugby player, 23, after he admitted to Paige Thorne that he’d cheated with other girls during the show’s Casa Amor stage.

He broke down in tears in some of the most emotional scenes ever shown on Love Island – and so did many viewers.

The tearful boy told his co-stars: “Lately I just can’t be myself so I’m trying my best but I’m not the wrong person.

“I’m not going to start faking things and pretending I’m okay if things aren’t really okay inside.”

He added as the cast gasped around the fire pit: “So today I’ll be going.

“I just can’t stay and not be myself. It’s not fair to me and definitely not fair to Paige.

“For me and Paige to work, I have to do my best, and if that means pulling out of the situation and waiting for Paige when she comes out, then I will.”

His feelings came to a head after Villa veteran Adam, 26, clashed with the pretty paramedic.

On yesterday’s show, Jacques erupted after Gemma Owen, 19, told him Adam “really choked him up”.

Jacques, who, in a different twist, dated Gemma for eight months during the pandemic, fumed: “If a boy chats behind my back, I don’t fucking have it.”

After deciding to leave the villa yesterday morning, he broke down in tears on the terrace.

Jacques told Paige, “I need to get back to myself and the only way I can do that is by going home.”

In emotional scenes he said to her: “You mean so much to me, you know that?

“The last two weeks… things are tough in here, I find it tough. I’m trying to put on a brave face, but things are getting to me.

“I want to be with you just like I want you to be my girlfriend. I want this, so I’ll wait. I’m counting the days until you get out.”

Paige said, “I don’t want you to go … Of course I want you to be happy and it hurts me to see you like that anyway.”

He later shook Adam’s hand, adding, “It’s all good.”

A spokesperson for the show said this afternoon: “Jacques has made the decision to leave the villa.

“We fully support his decision and look forward to seeing what comes next for Jacques.”

During his time at the villa, Jacques was accused of “bullying” and “gaslighting” by Paige.

His family said the Cumbrian boy is struggling with his emotions due to ADHD.
