ADAM Collard’s ex Rosie Williams has slammed him as “fame hungry” following his return to the hit ITV2 show.
The controversial star is set to put the cat among the pigeons as he waltzes back into the Majorcan villa once again, after four years away.
Adam says he’s looking for love on the show, but Rosie, 30, who was dumped by the personal trainer on the 2018 series, says he’s “in it for the fame.”
The pair had a brief partnership on the show, but things between them quickly cooled and Rosie branded their time together "terrible".
In an exclusive chat with The Sun, the brunette beauty said: “I think he’s gone on for fame. He’s done it once and didn’t find love. Well, actually he found it with Zara and ruined it.
“So why would he go back on to find what he didn’t find in the first place? It’s all a bit strange that it’s the first place he’d choose.

“I think he’s had girlfriends since he’s come out and that’s not really worked.”
The Sun has contacted Adam’s reps for comment.
Since entering the villa, Adam has wasted no time in pulling girls for chats, including Paige Thorne, 24, Danica Taylor, 21, and Ekin-Su, 27.
Rosie warned that Paige and Ekin-Su will be “his type” and they’re “in trouble” as they remind her of herself and his other ex Zara McDermott, who Adam dated for eight months after meeting on the reality show.
Welsh reality star Rosie, who is now in a “happy” relationship, told us she’s “warned Paige’s family” about Adam, saying: “Based on my experience I’d say not to couple up with Adam.

“I actually spoke to whoever is running Paige’s social media accounts and said ‘I hope my Welsh sister doesn’t do it. Tell her to stay away.’
“He charmed a lot of us in my series, but whether or not he’s true to his word is another thing.
“Let’s wait and see if he’s matured in four years, but what I can see from him being on it so far is that he doesn’t look like he has. I’m sure he’ll work his magic, but whether or not he’s true to his word is another thing.”
Now he’s back in the villa, Adam has said he’s “going to ruffle feathers” while he’s on the show.
It’s the first time an Islander has ever returned to the main show as a contestant.
Upon his return, Women’s Aid issued a warning to Love Island bosses over the controversial contestant.
At the time, the domestic abuse charity released a statement around the personal trainers’ treatment of law student Rosie, declaring there were “warning signs in his behaviour”.
Now ITV2’s move to allow Adam back into the villa has prompted concern from viewers who have recalled his attitude the first time round, prompting Women’s Aid to comment anew.
In a statement, Women's Aid's Teresa Parker said: “In the 2018 series of Love Island, we saw Rosie rightly call out Adam for his unacceptable behaviour, which included gaslighting and emotional abuse.
“We hope that ITV recognise how serious this issue is and that it must be learned from, considering they have asked Adam to return to the show.
“Love Island is watched by many young people and we know what a huge influence it has.
“Producers must make sure there is support for contestants throughout, and intervene if relationships become unhealthy or abusive”.
