Love Island: Zara DEFENDS love rat Adam for kissing new girl Darylle and hints ...

Axed Love Island contestant Zara McDermott addressed the matter of her and love rat Adam Collard on Sunday's spin-off show Aftersun.

And despite announcing she 'loved' him, only to watch him immediately moving on with series newbie Darylle Sargeant, Zara still defended the Lothario, and excused his behaviour.

Speaking to Caroline Flack, she said: 'It’s difficult – I’ve left, he’s still in the game. What choice does he have after he’s decided to stay in?'

Clearly unimpressed with this, Caroline pointed out: 'He does have other choices!'

The TV presenter then asked Zara about Adam's treatment of Rosie, whom he dumped for Zara, before ditching Zara for Daryll.

'I have to ask as a girl, was that not a red light?' Caroline pressed, referencing Adam's smirking response to Rosie's tears.

'I didn’t see it with my own eyes,' was Zara's paltry response, before adding: 'I’m still asking why [Adam] didn’t go with me [when she was voted off show].

Of the fact that he's been kissing and sharing a bed with Daryll, she went on: 'It’s hard to watch. This time a couple of days ago we were together. What we had was genuinely so real.'

Gushing over the serial romancer, she went on: 'It was the most amazing thing, it really made my time in there so special. No one can take away from me how amazing he was.' 

Caroline pressed her on the declaration of love she had made about Adam on the night she left.

'Love is a big word,' she admitted. 'But I could see myself falling that way as things continued.'

Seeming to excuse him yet again, she added: 'He’s in there, he’s got to still do what
