The wrestler, 24, from Belfast was given the chance to enjoy some private time with glamour model Katie, 20, in the hideaway on Sunday night (9 July), traditionally a time when couples sleep together away from the prying eyes of the other islanders.
At first, it seemed like things were going to get hot and steamy for the new couple, as Adam gave a lingerie-clad Katie a massage.
But Adam chose not to take things further with Katie, saying his dream is to join World Wrestling Entertainment in America, and doing the deed on TV could jeopardise that.
"Things were getting heated so maybe it's best we sleep on separate sides of the bed before things get out of hand," said Adam. "I couldn't risk having sex et cetera on TV because I have to think of my passion and dream of making it to the WWE in America and that would go against me if I did to it, so I haven't done it and that's why."
Plenty of fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on that revelation:

Adam and Katie are the newest couple in the Spanish villa, coupling up last week in the final recoupling ahead of Monday night's big finale.
They shared their first kiss during a date last week and met each other's families on Sunday night's (9 July) episode, getting a thumbs up from both.
Katie said last week: "We're getting on nice. I like the fact that he's such a chilled laid back guy. I'd go to Ireland and see him, definitely. I'm looking forward to getting to know him more because it still is early days, obviously. It's nice you can have someone in here you can have a little kiss with and a little cuddle."
Love Island's finale airs 9pm on ITV2.
