Former Love Island star Adam Collard has spoken out amid rumours that he's been dating his Celebs Go Dating co-star Lottie Moss.
The pair have been spotted looking cosy on a string of dates recently, after appearing to have grown close whilst starring on E4's Celebs Go Dating.
Technically on the show, the celebrities are paired with non-celebrities for dates who are chosen by a team of experts, but Lottie, 25, and Adam, 27, clearly have a twinkle in their eye for one another.
Adam, who has previously dated the likes of Zara McDermott and Paige Thorne, has now spoken for the first time on the rumoured romance, saying Lottie "has a lot of respect" for him.
Adam told The Sun: "I think we’re in a really good place right now and you know, she has a lot of respect for me.
"I have a lot of respect for her."
It comes just days after Lottie addressed their closeness, saying something could be on the cards between them.
Whilst Lottie hasn't directly confirmed the romance, she told the publication: "Well he's a lovely guy. We really care about each other."
When asked if there is a romance on the cards, Lottie said: "There could be. You never know. You never know."
Speaking about the celebrity couples that have been sparked from the show, such as Laura Anderson and Gary Lucy and Stephanie Pratt and Joey Essex, Lottie said "it happens every time" and said "its a curse".
She went on, tellingly: "I definitely didn't expect to come in here and meet someone that I really like and, you know, ended up doing that with someone."
Ahead of the show's launch, Adam opened up about how Love Island has been his “saving grace”, adding that it has stopped him from cheating in relationships in later life.
Speaking to the MailOnline, he said: "Call me old-fashioned, but I genuinely believe there's someone out there whom I'll meet and feel like saying, 'Yeah, I'm done.'
“I won't lie, I have had it before but I was too young. I will hopefully get it again where I'm with someone and really want to be with them all the time and can be completely best friends. Unfortunately I haven't found that just yet.”
He continued: "I was very nearly settled, wifed up and married off in the countryside at a very young age.
“I went full circle and went on Love Island, and I think it was a saving grace because I think if I hadn't have done that, I would have messed around later in life. But now when I'm ready to settle, I will be ready to settle.”
Adam's last high-profile relationship was with Paige Thorne who he met on Love Island last year, but the pair split just weeks after the show ended.
