Love Island's Paige Thorne gets cosy with ex Jacques O'Neill on night out after Adam split

Newly-single Paige Thorne has sparked rumours she may be on track to rekindling her romance with ex Jacques O'Neill.

The Love Island star, 24, who split from Adam Collard in a bitter break-up, was pictured looking very cosy on the dancefloor on a night out in Manchester on Saturday night.

Paige, who revealed she had been in contact with Jacques recently, partied at Mnky Hse restaurant into the early hours with Jacques, 23.

Paige and Jacques were coupled up on Love Island, but cracks began to show in their romance - which led to Jacques quitting when the paramedic got close to Adam.

The television personality was pictured whispering into the rugby player's ear as they tried to talk to one another on the dancefloor.

While they headed to the event separately, the pair looked delighted to have bumped into each other.

Paige, who cut a glamorous figure in a black minidress and thigh-high boots, leant into Jacques as their pals danced around them in pictures obtained by MailOnline.

And Jacques certainly appeared in high spirits as he left the venue. Sporting a khaki jacket, the reality star flashed a wide grin at the cameras.

Mirror Online has contacted Jacques and Paige for comment.

Paige turned to Jacques after her split from Lothario Adam.

In a bombshell interview last month, she said: "There has been slight contact. No contact with the lips. Let’s not forget how this boy done me in Casa [Amor].

"Obviously we had a vibe in there. But he done me over. D*****d. Fine. But we’re just going to see where things go. I am in zero rush to be with a man because men are trash."

Paige went on to accuse Adam of cheating on her after videos emerged of him looking cosy with his arm around another woman in McDonald's on a night out.

The paramedic said his actions were "unjustifiable" and she promptly ended their relationship.

"It’s not just that video. There are other videos that people don’t know about of different people, on the same night, in different locations," she said.

"At first I was like, nah do you know what? It’s just an arm. I get that people get flirty. There’s nothing to it. If I’m in the club and a guy puts his arm around me, is it cheating? No.

"And then these other videos came out and I’m just like, ooh. Ooh, I can’t justify this."

Paige previously revealed she had got back in touch with Jacques after her split from Adam (@SavingGrace/YouTube)

She added: "I’m single, living my best life. No I’m kidding, it’s been a really s**t time."

Speaking on the Saving Grace podcast, Paige claimed she had seen other videos of Adam with other women in "VIP toilets. Keep it classy babe."

And Paige says she has no plans on rekindling her romance with Adam.

"Absolutely not. I mean, would you? Would you get back with someone like that? The videos speak for themselves. The ones everyone has seen and the ones only I’ve seen," she said.
