Jacques O’Neill has quit the Love Island villa.

The rugby player – who is the ex of Gemma Owen – called time on the ITV2 show, just hours after former Love Island star Adam Collard entered the villa and set his sights on Paige Thorne, the Mirror reported.

A Love Island spokesperson told the publisher: “Jacques has made the decision to leave the Villa. He will explain his reasons to the Islanders during tonight’s episode. We fully support his decision and look forward to seeing what’s next for Jacques.”

Jacques has had a bumpy few weeks in the villa after kissing another girl at Casa Amor, and subsequently upsetting Paige Thorne.

On Monday’s episode, he wore Paige an apology that went down well.

That is until Adam arrived and started chatting with Paige.

In a teaser for Tuesday’s episode, it was suggested Adam told Paige his opinion of Jacques which didn’t go down well.

Jacques then snapped: ‘Who the f**k is he?’
