The merry-go-round of reality tv couples continues.

The latest pair to hook up is Zara McDermott and Sam Thompson, of Love Island and Made in Chelsea fame. 

They have been doing the 2019 version of flirting – commenting on each other's Instagram pictures.

But then they were pictured holding hands in London and now their reps have confirmed that they are in fact, dating. 

 The pair furled speculation they were dating after they pictured together in a social media post on May 26

While Sam might be a bit of an eejit, he's a harmless one and we're delighted for Zara after being messed around by Adam Collard. 

It seems things are going from strength to strength for the couple as Zara commented ''“I [love] U'' under a shirtless snap of Sam. 

The MIC star was previously in a long-term relationship with co-star Tiffany Watson and he has since said it ended because he was ''immature.''

Zara was rumoured to be dating singer Olly Murs, but she strongly denies this.

The 22-year-old told The Sun, ''He’s a lot older than me. I feel really annoyed now because it’s awkward.I sing and play the piano and he invited me to watch The Voice to see how it works as I want to get into all of that. He was lovely to me and that’s all I can say.”

We think they look kinda good together – crack on, we say. 


Adam Collard is nothing but a distant memory for Zara McDermott now.

The Love Island star is now reportedly in a blossoming romance with none other than Olly Murs.

The duo has been flirting on each others Instagrams (how very 2019) and have now taken things up a notch since meeting on a night out in March.

According to The Sun, ''Olly is smitten with Zara and it’s not hard to see why. He tried to make out they’re just mates but there’s real chemistry between them.''

They continued, ''Now their romance is blossoming into a relationship. He treats her like a princess and is very complimentary about her. It takes a lot to get Olly’s attention but Zara has really turned his head.''

So it seems that the 34-year-old singer is really into Zara.

The source added, ''Their dates have been out of the public eye and it’s been nice for them to connect on a deeper level without any prying eyes. Olly’s mates are desperate for him to find someone to settle down with and Zara seems perfect for him.”

Olly has laughed off the rumours, saying, ''I just find it funny. That’s the world I live in in the dating world. If you like anyone’s photos you’re automatically dating them, it’s just crazy.''

He continued, ''I spoke to Zara after seeing her the other week in Sheesh with my mates. We were chatting about music because she loves singing. I’d seen on her Instagram that she likes to sing and as a fellow singer you go ‘wow, you’re a real singer.''

Hmmmm, sounds a bit more than friendly banter to us Olly – watch this space…


Last week, Zara McDermott took to social media to announce that she and her Love Island beau Adam Collard had split after six months. 

Her emotive text post via Instagram stories led many to believe that Adam had cheated on Zara during their time together.

'Sometimes in life, you just aren't enough for someone, no matter what you do for them or how much you try to be,' she wrote.

'For everyone asking if I am okay, I dont know that I am. But I know that soon I will be.'

Adam Collard did not comment on the split, until he  appeared on This MornIng in an interview.

The 23-year-old confirmed the split, saying: 'We're not a couple…To me it’s just ran it’s course. It’s hard to get over that.'


A post shared by ZARA MCDERMOTT (@zara_mcdermott) on

The reality TV star denied cheating, saying: 'It's really hard because it would be easy to get out of a relationship if someone had done anything wrong, but that's not the case.' 

'We're just not getting on right now and it's hard. She rang me on the way here and said good luck.'

Jack Fincham and Dani Dyer are now the only couple remaining from last summer's Love Island series. 


It's the news that won't be surprising anyone.

We all know that Adam Collard and Zara McDermott called it a day but we didn't know all the sh*t that went down before they did.

It's been reported that Adam The Rat (as he will now be referred to as) spent a drunken night in a hotel with two women while he was still with Zara.

Shock, horror…not.


A post shared by A D A M C O L L A R D (@adamcollard) on

Adam had been out with fellow Love Island co-stars Jack Fincham and Sam Bird and a few women.

Adam begged for Zara’s forgiveness during furious rows over the betrayal, but a few days alter he cruelly dumped her BY TEXT.

According to The Sun, ''Understandably, Zara was angry and upset at Adam for staying over with two women he met on a drunken night out with Sam and Jack. She had it out with him and said it was completely disrespectful.''

It continued, ''He argued that nothing had happened but it was stupid of him to get into that situation. Over the weekend Adam was pictured with a girl on his arm at the end of a night out. Zara then got a text from Adam saying that he was ending things because the relationship wasn’t working.''


A post shared by ZARA MCDERMOTT (@zara_mcdermott) on

The couple has been together for seven months and Zara is said to be devastated by Adam's behaviour.

His track record isn't great tbf – remember he acted in the villa with Kendall and then Rosie?

The 23-year-old is yet to comment publicly on the split but Zara announced it on Instagram with a heartfelt post.

She wrote, ''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.''

She continued, ''Sometimes in life, you just aren’t enough for someone; no matter what do for them or how much you try to me. For everyone asking if I’m OK, I don’t know that I am. But I know that soon I will be. I will be strong and prove to myself that I can get through this."

We think she's had a lucky escape tbh. 


So, Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham are officially the last couple standing from  the 2018 edition of Love Island.

Today, Zara McDermott announced via her Instagram story that she and Adam Collard have parted ways. 

Writing a poignant post, Zara expressed feelings of not being 'enough' for her boyfriend of six months, despite trying to make the relationship work.

Reportedly, the couple have been in crisis talks about Adam's party-loving ways. 


Zara McDermott has revealed how she went from working for the Government to being on Love Island.

The reality star took to YouTube to open up about her journey on the popular ITV series.

Before her Love Island days, Zara admitted she never had an interest in being on reality TV, even admitting that she had a bad view of reality TV stars in the past.


A post shared by ZARA MCDERMOTT (@zara_mcdermott) on

“I didn’t see a place for myself. Reality TV isn’t just for a very small portion of people. I wasn’t 100% convinced that it was for me,” she explained.

Zara even admitted that she told her mum that she would never go on reality TV. “You couldn’t pay me. I was like I love my job too much. I could never give that up. I’m not into arguing and I’m quite relaxed.


A post shared by ZARA MCDERMOTT (@zara_mcdermott) on

ITV2 were the ones who contacted Zara about being on the show. She said: “I think the reason I got scouted out was because I had quite a good Instagram. I’d been doing some minor influencing for a while.

Zara also felt her career made her stand out. “I’m not sure if they thought ‘this girl could be a good candidate for the show, she’s got a good job, she clearly cares about how she looks’.

Once she emailed the researcher she felt like she had made a mistake. “Straight after I emailed, I was like no I don’t want to do that. This is not for me.”


A post shared by ZARA MCDERMOTT (@zara_mcdermott) on

After a while, she soon realised that being part of Love Island would be a ‘fantastic opportunity’.

“I was so nervous at first. I had my career planned out in my head. I didn’t see myself being a reality star.”

There’s no doubt Zara is glad she took the chance, having met her beau Adam in the Love Island villa. She admitted that she had just experienced a difficult breakup before the show and had very little confidence in herself.


A post shared by ZARA MCDERMOTT (@zara_mcdermott) on

“I gave up all hope of finding someone. I thought ‘I’m never going to meet someone in Love Island. All these beautiful girls, I’m never going to meet anyone.”

“From the first five seconds of walking in I was like ‘Adam’. You know when you get that instant click with someone? I can’t even explain it, I’ve never had it before,” she gushed.

We’re sure Zara is glad she trusted her gut and went on the reality show. It certainly changed her life in ways she never imagined before.


It might be their first Christmas together as a couple, but Adam Collard and Zara McDermott won't be spending it together.

The Love Island stars, who are one of three couples still remaining from the show, will be with their families on Christmas Day.

Zara confirmed that the pair had spoken about it and decided that it was best if they went to their hometowns for the day.


Baby baby

The 21-year-old told OK! online that, ''Because Adam’s family’s in Newcastle and my family are in Essex, I said to him I’m not fussed about him being with me for Christmas.''

She continued, ''Because I’m with him all the other time of the year, I think it’s important to be with our families. So I said to him, ‘if you want to spend time with your family and I’ll be with mine then we’ll just see each other on Boxing Day.’''

She added, ''I’m not fussed about him being with me on Christmas Day, it doesn't bother me.''

She went on to say that her birthday is the week before and she was happy if she spent that day with her 23-year-old boyfriend.

Zara also spoke about the upcoming Love Island Christmas reunion and how her friend Ellie Brown was feeling about coming face to face with her ex Charlie Brake.

Zara said, ''It will be the first time her and Charlie have spoken since they split. The thing with Ellie is she’s got absolutely nothing to be worried about, nothing to be concerned about.''

She continued, ''If he was to say anything to try and be nasty to her it would just completely backfire for him because everyone loves her, everyone knows she’s an amazing girl and knows that he’s just not a very nice person clearly. I think it’s gonna get a bit ugly if I’m honest.”

We LEGIT cannot wait. 


Love Island drama is looking like it's set to keep us warm this autumn. 

With splits happening left, right and centre – Laura Anderson and Paul Knops followed by Jack Fowler and Laura Crane –  the latest pair reported to have called it a day were definitely not one we were expecting.

This years villain, Adam Collard and his gf Zara McDermott were hit with claims that they were no longer together. 

And boy, did they have a response. 


Love of my life. no one compares to you

So, Zara attended a PA on the weekend without Adam, who apparently was supposed to accompany her so people automatically assumed that the pair had called it quits.

And Zara was having none of it. 

She took to Instagram to hit back at the claims.

Sharing a video of her in bed with Adam, he said that he decided to go to the gym instead.

She said, ''we didn't have a joint PA – I had a PA and Adam said he might come if he fancies it – so I got his name put on the guest list just in case. But when the time came, he said he wanted to go to the gym and do some work instead. ‘That is all.’''

Ah, we can sleep at now now so. 

Apparently the couple are going from strength to strength with a friend evening saying, ''they're about to move in together and are really excited about the next chapter together.''

Well, they did get matching tats of each others initials and we all know that means true love. *cough*


Love Island lothario Adam Collard caused havoc while in the villa with his women-hopping antics.

And now that he's been booted off the show, it doesn't look like anything's changed. 

The Geordie, 22, may have been declaring his love for fellow contestant Zara McDermott, 21, on Aftersun last night, but it looks like he still isn't completely over his former flame Rosie Williams, 26.

Adam and Rosie didn't get off to the smoothest of starts, with the hunk dumping Kendall Rae-Knight to recouple with the Welsh solicitor. 

However, things didn't last long between the pair after Zara entered the villa and immediately turned Adam's head.

We didn't see that one coming, said literally no-one.

It seemed like Adam and Zara were the Real Deal though, mainly due to the fact that he didn't seem interested in any new girls…probably because no new girls came in before she was kicked out of the villa. 

Cynical, us? Never.

However true love does exist everyone, because now that Adam and Zara are both out, they're posting loved up pics on Instagram, like the one below.

Who were we to judge?


I’ve already won..

A post shared by A D A M C O L L A R D (@adamcollard) on

We were gobsmacked to hear the latest goss that he's been sneakily messaging Rosie behind Love-Of-His-Life Zara's back.

It just doesn't sound like him, does it?

According to The Mirror, "it just shows what a rat he is. Rosie cannot believe he's got in touch when he's been banging on about Zara."

A rep for Adam was quick to quash any whispers of a romantic reunion, stating that he was simply ''wishing her 'good luck' and with a view to 'staying friends'.'' Hmmm.

If we were Zara we wouldn't be going overboard with those romantic Insta snaps just yet….
