But for many viewers, they felt the 22-year-old looked like the doppelganger of actor Tristan Gemmill, who plays Robert in the ITV soap.

Taking to Twitter, fans posted side by side pictures of the two men to show off their likeness.

One wrote: "Cannot look at adam without seeing robert from corrie #loveisland" while another added: "just me who thinks Adam from love island resembles robert from corrie #loveisland".

A fourth shared: "I can't look at Adam on #LoveIsland without thinking he's just a younger Robert from Corrie" while another posted: "I can't be the only one that thinks Adam on #LoveIsland looks like Robert from Coronation Street's long lost son."

Adam isn't the only Islander to have a celebrity lookalike, as earlier in the week, viewers were convinced Jack Fincham was the lovechild of Towie stars James Argent and Joey Essex.

Eagle-eyed viewers were quick to observe that Jack-the-lad bared an uncanny resemblance to the lovable TV personalities.

One user tweeted:"Jack is literally 1/4 Joey Essex and 3/4 Arg #loveisland."

Others were more perturbed by the similarity: "WHY does Jack look like Arg and Joey Essex had a baby??? #LoveIsland."
