Adam Collard has admitted that he still “loves” his ex Zara McDermott, after she was recently linked to singer Olly Murs.
Zara and Olly sparked romance rumours this week, after fans noticed the pair liking each other’s posts on Instagram.
During an interview on FUBAR radio’s Access All Areas show, Adam was asked about the rumours, and he replied, “I haven’t really seen anything about that but I mean, I don’t really think anything of it. If she was to do that, I wish her all the best.”
He then admitted: “I love her to bits. I don’t really know what else to say.”
Speaking about their breakup, he revealed: “From a business perspective, it would have been more beneficial for me to not be with her. Everyone who is close to me knows that.”
“That was the most genuine thing I’ve had in a long, long time. And I think it will take a long, long time for that to happen again, I just need to chill.”
He continued: “It sounds bad but I didn’t do anything to her and she didn’t do anything to me, but because of stereotypical ‘bad boy Adam’, everyone thinks oh, he’ll be trying.”
“I’m a big boy, I can handle it. I would rather people be supportive of Zara and make sure she’s looked after.”
