Love Island's Adam Maxted has declared he's "100 per cent single" despite romancing Katie Salmon in the villa and the pair discussing a future.

Wrestler Adam, 24, didn't really click with any of the girls in the villa until model Katie, 20, arrived late on and, following her brief coupling with Sophie Gradon, 24, he got his chance to ask her out.

Adam and Katie await the results of the finale vote.

They coupled up, shared a kiss and Katie even talked about visiting Adam in Belfast once the show had ended.

Adam also told her: "[You were] the egg in my bag of Haribo. I'm excited to leave Love Island with you and continue the rest."

But lasting romance? Apparently not.

While attending last night's Love Island wrap party, Adam – who has been teased for his love of hashtags – tweeted: "Speaking of hashtags.. #100%Single."

Of course, they hadn't actually made it official in the villa as it was very early days, so perhaps Adam was just pointing out it's not girlfriend, boyfriend stage yet?

Whatever the case, fans were quick to ask what had happened - he didn't say - and assure Adam he won't be short of female attention following his time in the villa.

Katie hasn't said anything.

When Katie entered the villa, she initially coupled with Sophie, and they shared a kiss on a champagne dinner date. But after Sophie feared her romance with Tom Powell was in jeopardy, she cooled things with Katie, who was left hurt and feeling as if Sophie had "f**ked with [her emotions]."

It did, however, leave the way open for Adam to make his move, which Katie seemed pleased to accept.

"I just didn't want you to think you're the second option. I completely did not know who I was going to pick," said Katie. "I don't want you to think that because my first plan failed that I'm jumping to my second, because I genuinely said from the start that I liked you both. You do make me laugh, I find you very funny."

At the finale.

Things had seemed pretty positive for them, with Katie even saying she would visit Adam in Northern Ireland.

"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," she said ahead of the finale. "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."

Things never went past kissing in the villa because Adam didn't want to have sex on TV, fearing it could jeopardise his dream of starring in WWE in the US.

Adam and Katie finished fourth on Monday night's (11 July) finale, behind winners Cara de la Hoyde and Nathan Massey, second-placed Alex Bowen and Olivia Buckland, and third position Kady McDermott and Scott Thomas.
