And over the weekend Adam was on hand to watch Laura as she took on presenting duties at St James’ Park for the Newcastle game.
But for those who recognise Adam, it appears that Laura is the last in a long line of women the TV star has dated.
The ripped brunette hunk first made a name for himself when he joined Love Island in 2018 and had not one, two but three relationships throughout the series.
Most notably he hooked up with Zara McDermott, who is currently competing on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.

However, Adam and Zara weren't to last and since then he's been linked to, um, quite a lot of women. Now Fabulous takes a look at Adam's relationships …
Adam enters the Love Island villa
Adam, then 22, first appeared on ITV2 show Love Island in 2018 and he certainly didn't lack confidence in his opening video, boldly saying: "Three words to describe me in the bedroom would be flamboyant, fun… and quick.
"I'm tall, dark and handsome, I've got abs, what more would anyone want?"
The tattooed hunk entered the villa on day one, and set his sights on Kendall Rae Knight, a former Blackpool beauty queen, who was initially coupled up with Niall Aslam and is now pregnant with her first child.
On day two, Adam didn’t waste any time and quickly stole Kendall from Niall, who later left the show for personal reasons.
But despite going on a romantic date and saying she “ticked a lot of boxes” for him, on day six, the Geordie personal trainer dumped Kendall and decided to couple up with new girl Rosie Williams, after the model refused to get intimate with him.
Kendall was the first to be dumped from the villa, but her initial upset over Adam’s actions soon turned to relief that she did not completely fall for his charms.
Back in 2018, talking exclusively to The Sun on Sunday, Kendall warned girls to steer well clear of heartthrob.
She said: “I definitely had a lucky escape and I’m sure all girls across the UK would agree.
“Girls who like a bad boy will still go for him, but any girl with half a brain cell wouldn’t go near him.
“I’d never get back with him. I don’t know whether what he’s doing is emotional abuse or immaturity, but it is just really disrespectful.”
She also added: “I’m glad I trusted my gut. I had a niggly feeling that I needed to take things slow because something wasn’t right with Adam.
"I’m glad I didn’t give in to doing anything sexual.
"If I had the chance to go back in I’d pull him up on everything, I’d tell him he’s not better than anyone else and that he should treat everyone with respect.”
Not all rosy with Rosie
Adam took a risk and coupled up with Rosie and it seemed that things were going well for the pair, as the couple got close under the covers.
During the series four stint, the pair became intimate and the Welsh star performed a sex act on Adam, making them the first couple of the series to go further than a kiss.
But things soon became rocky between the pair when Adam branded Rosie “clingy” and said she was “too on top” of him.
Rosie had an emotional journey on the show after Adam smirked in her face as she wept following the end of their romance.
When things went sour, the lawyer, 26, posed in lacy knickers and a see through kaftan with close pal Megan in an attempt to make Adam jealous after he ended their romance.
Hours after leaving the villa she told The Sun: “People can say it was cringe but secretly they have done it themselves.
“We had fun and apparently we looked hot and that’s all that matters. It was amazing, it was so much fun, and it definitely lifted me.
“In real life I would upload a smoking photo and hope he would see it but we just thought we would do it in front of his face.
“Megan and I would call each other the blonde and brunette dream team and they sent in a new blonde and brunette and we were just making our mark.”
True love with Zara?
Rosie was soon dumped from the villa when Adam moved on AGAIN and chose to couple up with Zara McDermott, 26.
It all started when bombshell Zara, who is now in a relationship with Made In Chelsea’s Sam Thompson, picked the heartthrob for one of her three dates.
Just four days later, Adam chose to couple up with Zara.
The modern day Casanova said of his new fling: "I'm bang into her, she's mint, she's just fantastic.
"I'm not gonna lie, I've been around the block a few times and but I actually want something more now."
Things seemed to go smoothly for the pair until things took a turn when the couple were in the bottom three couples after receiving the fewest public votes.
Adam was saved after the girls chose to dump Eyal Booker. However, he was left single as the boys chose to dump Zara from the villa.
The couple rekindled their relationship outside of the villa – later becoming boyfriend and girlfriend.
The pair stayed together for eight months after the show finished, and appeared to be taking the relationship seriously, with the pair even getting matching tattoos.
The couple even moved in together in Essex before going their separate ways in February 2019.
Announcing their break up in a statement, Zara said: “I am heartbroken to announce that Adam and I have parted ways. I love him very much and will always have a special place in my heart for him and our time spent together.
“I have tried so hard to be the best person I can possibly be and to make it work. Sometimes in life, you just aren’t enough for someone; no matter what you do for them or how much you try to be.”
New girlfriend on the scene
Just months later, in the summer of 2019, Adam met Irish fitness influencer Sarah Godfrey, 30, and the pair sparked up a relationship.
The couple marked the relationship milestone by enjoying a romantic holiday in Morocco at the lavish Mazagan Beach Resort in July 2019.
However, the relationship didn’t last long, as the couple parted ways just a few months later in January 2020.
At the time, Adam shared with OK! Magazine: “Nothing bad has happened at all.
'We still have mutual work interests and I want to see her do well with whatever.”
Just two months after Adam and Sarah confirmed their split, the ex-Love Island star was linked to TOWIE star Demi Sims, 27.
The pair were spotted looking closely acquainted as they kissed and hugged while on a night out in London.
However, it is not known or reported if the two went on to share a romantic relationship.
Love Island round two
In July 2022, Love Island’s ultimate menace left viewers stunned when he returned to the show for the second time, for his next shot at finding love.
On his arrival, Adam hailed himself the "OG bombshell" and claimed: "My best feature, I probably couldn't pick it because I am the full package.
"I think the villa needs spicing up and you've got the perfect man for the job."
"I'm not worried about breaking up a couple, it's exactly when I'm there to do."
The 6ft 5ins hunk paired up with Welsh paramedic Paige Thorne and unlike his previous stint in the fourth series.
Paige admitted he had the "gift of the gab" but decided to couple up with him anyway, and Adam stayed with her for the duration of his time on the show.
However, the pair were dumped from the villa on day 56 after receiving the fewest votes.
Despite this, the couple had strengthened their relationship and continued dating in the outside world.
The two remained together for four months, and revealed their split in November 2022, after Adam had been accused of cheating by Paige.
Adam spoke out shortly after the split, saying at the time that he “holds his hands up” after being caught on video flirting with other girls on nights out while dating his fellow Love Island star.
Celebs Go Dating
Following his relationship with Paige, Adam then moved on after signing up to Celebs Go Dating in July this year.
He admitted he has a "sceptical reputation in his dating love", and said: "I've came to the agency for a few reasons, I do not have much luck in love, it may be self-inflicted, I seem to have a nosebleed every time I hit 18 months.
"I'm looking for someone to keep me on my toes because I seem to love the chase, and then, not gonna lie, get bored when I don't have it."
He admitted that he "always get the girls he likes", and compared it to getting a flight, saying: "it's like when you get the airport when flights are delayed but you always get the end destination."
During the TV stint, he most recently dated OnlyFans model and younger half-sister to Kate Moss, Lottie Moss – but it was tumultuous and a very brief fling.
The model, 25, and the Love Island star had enjoyed a burgeoning romance since crossing paths on the E4 reality series.
Only a month later, in August, Adam told the dating agents in one episode that he felt a 'spark' with Lottie, which came after it was revealed the pair had slept together.
The pair shared a night together on three more occasions before finally sharing a first date since meeting on the show.
At the start of the date, the pair seemed very awkward in a restaurant setting as they spoke about their feelings outside of the bedroom.
Adam said: “This is the weirdest first date ever, we're doing everything backwards.”
Just one day after the date, Lottie sensationally dumped 'immature' Adam after he made the decision to kiss and go out with another girl.
Adam asked to pick who he wanted to take on another date between Jasmine, Autumn and Lottie during the tense brunch.

After picking Autumn to go on a date, Lottie remained calm and composed but said she was “fuming” over his choice, labelling him a “f**k boy.”
So can Adam last the distance with Laura. We hope so? She's clever, fun and talented – he's lucky to have landed such a catch!
