LOVE Island’s Adam Collard has finally tried to explain why he was smirking during THAT tearful row with Rosie Williams.
The 22-year-old had caused controversy thanks to his behaviour towards Rosie after he dumped her, which led to women’s charity branding him ‘emotionally abusive’.

But last night, the personal trainer opened up about the incident, claiming it was taken out of context, as he appeared on Aftersun alongside Zara McDermott.
Caroline Flack told him: “This is what upset everybody. While she was telling you how she felt, when she was obviously really upset, you just kind of laughed.”
He replied: “The conversation was a lot longer than what was obviously on the episode and it was massively cut down. I wasn’t laughing at Rosie being upset. I wouldn’t like to see anybody upset not any of the girls.
“It was almost because the conversation had gone on for so long. I didn’t say one word because I couldn’t get a word in edgeways.
