Adam Collard was reportedly involved in a physical altercation during a night out in Newcastle.
The reality star, 26, who returned as a bombshell during the latest season of the hit dating show was approached by a group of men while he was out with girlfriend Paige Thorne on Tuesday evening.
However, things later turned rowdy after a brief clip showed the moment Adam’s shirt was ripped off, which resulted in security stepping in.
‘Adam was trying to enjoy a quiet night in his hometown with friends when a large group of men began aggressively harassing them,’ a source shared.
“Despite several attempts to diffuse the situation, the men continued to become more aggressive and started physically attacking Adam,’ the insider added to The Sun .
Adam’s representatives allegedly claimed that Adam and his friends were ‘extremely shaken up’ by the ordeal.
Paige and Adam narrowly missed out on a place in the final but the pair couldn’t be more loved up as they’ve settled into life as a couple in the outside world.
Speaking about the moment he made things official, Adam said: ‘The only time where we got to sit on the sofa. It was only us for the first time.
‘I was like, “right, I need to ask you now because it’s not for anyone’s benefit, apart from mine and yours. I do really want you to be my girlfriend,”‘ he added to On Demand Entertainment .
Earlier today, Welsh-native Paige filmed herself back to work as a paramedic.
It comes after the reality contestant revealed on Lorraine that she had no plans of ditching her former job, sharing how she got major FOMO (fear of missing out) after the show ended and she heard an ambulance with sirens blaring.
She said: ‘I’ve got a meeting to go back to paramedic work, so that will be exciting.
‘I actually saw an ambulance the other day with sirens on and I had like, serious FOMO. I was like, get me my ambulance back!
‘So yeah, I’m gonna go back into that a little bit and just see what other opportunities come’.
