Love Island’s Jacques makes savage dig at ex Paige and her new love Adam Collard
Scorned Love Island star Jacques O'Neill served up a savage dig at his ex Paige Thorne and her new love Adam Collard over the weekend, taking aim at the pair’s relationship.
The rugby player, 23, who quit the ITV2 series last month following the arrival of bombshell Adam Collard, made the comments during an Instagram Live over the weekend.
The star made reference to the brunette beauty's mother, who recently admitted she's "not buying" the romance and joked about Adam's frosty introduction to her on the show.

He said to former cast-mates Luca Bish and Dami Hope: 'Well, her mum seems to love him doesn't she? He's in there with the fam!"
Love Island fans were left stunned after Paige's mum expressed doubt over her daughter's romance with Adam.
Paige's mum Samantha shared her honest thoughts about Adam not long before the two were dumped from the villa.
The comment was made during the Meet The Parents episode aired before the finale, which saw Paige’s mum and dad enter the Majorcan villa and give their feedback on her relationship with Adam.
When the islander asked for her opinion, Paige’s mum Samantha whispered: "I'm not buying it."
She then explained to her daughter: "The way you was with Jacques was completely different, you were a lot more you and bouncy and full of personality, with Adam it seems a lot more different."
But Paige argued: "With Jacques, he did bring out a different side of me, bubbly and all that but there were some bits that really weren't okay."
"Umm," she said after an awkward pause, before Paige was heard in the Beach Hut saying: "My mum and her savage comments, I knew she would be… I was just like 'Oh for God's sake!'"
The awkward moment came before Adam broke down in tears in the Beach Hut speaking about his true feelings for Paige, saying how much she had "changed" him.
Jacques was also one of the only cast members of the 2022 series to avoid the reunion show on Thursday.
The series eight stars came together for the first time outside of the villa to film the annual reunion show, which was shown on Sunday night on ITV2.
A source told The Sun: "Unfortunately Jacques has decided he's just not ready to see Paige quite yet and especially not with Adam.
"He's made the decision to wait for a more suitable moment to talk to her again after everything he's been through."
