After keeping fans guessing for weeks over their relationship status, insiders confirmed last week that Sam Thompson and Zara McDermott have rekindled their romance.

The former Love Island star posted a loved-up photo of the pair on her Instagram, with the caption, “I promise that you will always have my heart,” and has been spotted leaving Sam’s house on a number of occasions.

But now sources close to the pair have told new! magazine they believe the relationship is inevitably doomed and fear Zara is setting herself up for more heartbreak.

“Zara has made no secret of her desire to get Sam back but pals worry it’s going to end in disaster. This reunion doesn’t feel at all like it’s for the right reasons.

“The bottom line is, Sam can’t be alone. He hates his own company and the idea of being without a girlfriend at Christmas is his idea of hell,” the insider claimed.

Zara and Sam’s 16-month romance came to an end in September when it was revealed that Zara had been unfaithful, reportedly with a music producer, the year before.


Since then, the 23-year-old has made several public attempts to win Sam back, begging for his forgiveness.

During his tense split chat with Zara on a recent episode of Made In Chelsea, the 27 year old – whose past romance with Tiffany Watson was marred by cheating on both sides – revealed he didn’t believe he could trust her again.

He explained, “I promised myself I would never be that guy who asked to look at someone’s phone.

“I will never be that guy and I do not trust myself. That is where it will go and that is why I cannot be with you.”

The insider continued, “Sam has been unfaithful before with girlfriends and friends fear that after Zara’s betrayal, he could do it to get back at her. He’s already admitted that he’d struggle to trust her and wouldn’t trust himself to not become someone who was paranoid and jealous. That is not a healthy relationship.”

They also added, “Friends know how much Zara loves Sam but they fear the damage has been done and the relationship won’t recover. They worry that Sam will seek revenge or meet someone new and move on, leaving Zara devastated again.”
