Love Island star shares cryptic message as he addresses fans' concerns over wellbeing

Love Island star Jacques O'Neill has shared a cryptic message addressing fans' concern for his wellbeing following a break from social media.

The season eight contestant returned to his Instagram, having not used the account for a month.

Rugby player Jacques, 23, sensationally quit the villa last year.

He told Paige he was leaving Love Island hours after Adam arrived, explaining he had been ‘struggling’ on the show and couldn’t watch her get to know Adam.

Jacques also told Paige she ‘deserved better’ than what he could give her.

Now, the Love Island star worried fans as he took a break from social media.

He returned to the platform sharing a selfie of him looking troubled in a car.

It was captioned with a cryptic message: "A lot of people been asking if I'm okay lately... Sorry for not posting much I've just had a lot going on right now."

Yesterday, Jacques was confirmed to have joined All Star Entertainment on their talent roster.

A video posted by them showed the rugby player doing what he loves most on the field.

All Star Entertainment also counts former rival Adam Collard as a client.

Jacques had a tough time on the ITV show and hasn't been lucky in love since.

In January, he told fans he was still "single" as he headed to Nandos for lunch alone.

He drew a stick figure with a female face emoji, as he joked it was the "only date he goes on".

Jacques didn't start the year off well as he fractured his foot, leaving him on crutches.

"Was hoping for a better 2023, but starting the year with a fractured foot," he told fans on Instagram.

Adding: "Head's gone."

The reality star, who dated Michael Owen’s daughter Gemma before going on Love Island, insisted him and Paige are just friends for now after leaving the show.

Paige and Adam ended up getting together on Love Island, but just missed out on a place in the final.

Their relationship lasted a couple of months outside the villa, before they announced their split in October after Adam was seen hugging a mystery woman in a McDonald's.

At the time, Jacques claimed she had been “done over badly”.
