Jacques O’Neill skips Love Island reunion to ‘avoid seeing Paige Thorne with Adam Collard’

Jacques O’Neill reportedly snubbed the Love Island reunion that was filmed on Thursday night, which his ex Paige Thorne attended with Adam Collard.

Jacques, 23, quit the villa early after his romance with Paige, 24, hit the rocks post-Casa Amor.

The former pro rugby player has since shared how he felt going on the show was ‘the worst decision of my life’ but promised to wait for Paige ‘at the airport.’

However, Paige soon moved on with bombshell Adam, 26, who was previously a contestant back in 2018.

The pair are still going strong, but it’s been speculated this contributed to Jacques not being present at last night’s dramatic reunion episode.

The special, hosted by Laura Whitmore, gives fans the chance to catch up with all this season’s islanders, but the sporting ace is said to have opted out.

It’s not yet clear why Jacques didn’t decide to show his face, but it’s clear this wasn’t down to him not being invited.

Metro.co.uk understands that all Islanders are invited to take part in the reunion episode, but they get to decide whether to attend or not.

It comes after it was reported that Jacques wasn’t keen to see Paige and Adam together just yet.

A source told The Sun: ‘Everybody is getting together for a huge party tonight in London. ITV has put everyone up in a hotel so there’s no need for anyone to miss out.

‘Unfortunately, Jacques has decided he’s just not ready to see Paige quite yet and especially not with Adam.’

The insider went on to add: ’He’s made the decision to wait for a more suitable moment to talk to her again after everything he’s been through.’

According to his close friend Antigoni Buxton, Jacques and Paige haven’t spoken since they’ve returned to normal life.

Jacques also removed all traces of his former love interest from social media after it became clear things were stepping up a gear with Adam.

Adam and Paige’s romance is still going strong after they left the villa together last week.

Personal trainer Adam, 26, confirmed that the pair are very much together during an Instagram Q&A.

‘Course we are,’ he said. ‘I can’t wait just family comes first x,’ with the pair papped together last night after the reunion.

Love Island The Reunion airs on Sunday at 9pm on ITV2.
