Adam Collard reportedly asked a 17-year-old schoolgirl to meet him at a hotel after finding her photos on Instagram.
According to a report by The Sun, Adam, 22, sent the teenager a number of messages, including one which stated: “age is just a number”.
Adam is said to have initially asked how old she was, before she replied that she was 17 and a bit young for him.
He then replied with: “I don’t care if you’re not quite 18. Age is just a number isn’t it? You’re legal aren’t you?”
When the girl asked how old Adam was and she suggested he go for women his own age, he apparently replied with: “Why would I want them they’re not my type, you on the other hand...
The girl is said to have told Adam she was seeing someone, and he also messaged her with: “Let’s say what if I come to Coventry are you gonna meet up with me then? I'll take you out somewhere nice and book a hotel.”
She told The Sun of the messages: “Surely he could just go out instead of hitting on a 17-year-old on the internet? I found it really strange and a bit desperate he would want to drive all that way and want to get a hotel. It baffled me.”
Adam is a contestant on Love Island 2018 and is currently loved up Zara McDermott.
