Love Island's Paige Thorne sends clear message to Adam Collard on what he's missing while on night out

Love Island star Paige Thorne has been spotted for the first time since her rumoured break-up from Adam Collard as she enjoyed a girls night out with her fellow Islanders. The Swansea paramedic, who appeared on the 2022 series of the ITV2 dating show over the summer, headed out to Manchester with her friends and co-stars Antigoni Buxton and Danica Taylor.

The 24-year-old narrowly missed out on a spot in the series eight final with her partner Adam Collard, which couple Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Davide Sanclimenti won. Despite limited time together on the show, with former season 4 contestant Adam coming in late as a surprise bombshell, the pair strived to make their relationship work outside the villa.

Both Paige and Adam, aged 26, visited each other's home cities of Swansea and Newcastle, which you can read more about here. However, rumours have recently emerged that the couple have now gone their separate ways, with Paige appearing to have deleted all traces of Adam on Instagram.

Putting the rumours aside, the brunette beauty was seen heading out for a meal with her friends whilst showing off her glam look, Manchester Evening News reported. Posing for a picture, she wore a busty black corset, which was paired with black leather trousers, black strappy heels and a black and gold bag.

The Islander, who has recently returned to her former role as a paramedic, opted for a sleek hairstyle and smoky eyes and appeared to be all smiles as she put her relationship woes behind her. Meanwhile singer Antigoni Buxton, who is celebrity chef Tonia Buxton's daughter, sported a wrap up shirt dress with knee high boots, whilst dancer Danica Taylor donned a figure-hugging black playsuit and strappy gold heels.

Earlier this week Paige posted a bunch of sizzling images to Instagram on the stairs in a luxury Mayfair venue. She looked gorgeous in a figure-hugging grey bodysuit with a plunging zipped neckline. Paige added a pair of slinky black stiletto heels and her luscious dark locks bounced around her shoulders as she posed for the images with a glass one wine in her hand.

"I’m good x," she simply captioned the trio of photos to her 1.5 million followers and her former Love Island co-stars were quick to flood the comments section. Tasha Ghouri wrote: "Hottieee!!!" Danica Taylor replied: " Pretty bby." Show bestie Dami Hope commented: "Gowan paigeee." While Gemma Owen simply added flame emojis.

Last week, Paige shared an Instagram story dressed in her paramedic uniform, telling her fans: "So as you can see I'm back in my uniform about to be doing my first shift back, a little part of me is nervous as its been so long since I've been off but more than anything I'm super excited to be back."

Paige went on to say being a paramedic was her "passion" and what she was "comfortable" with. She said: "Back with my team, back doing what I absolutely love, what I am passionate about, what I'm comfortable with. I just know it's going to be a great shift...I can't wait, absolutely looking forward to it."
