Sam Thompson had been planning on proposing to his girlfriend Zara McDermott before the news of them reportedly calling time on their relationship was announced.

In July, the Made In Chelsea favourite dropped the shock revelation about his engagement plans as he reunited with Celebs Go Dating's Paul C Brunson to give an update on his love life.

Sam appeared on the hit E4 show twice, but was unlucky in love during dates set up for him by Paul and fellow dating agent Anna Williamson.

Shortly after his second appearance on the show, his romance with The X Factor: Celebrity contestant Zara began to blossom.

Paul asked Sam: "I have one question, have you proposed to your girlfriend?

"Sam, this is very important. You two are perfect, make that happen, put a ring on it. You need to propose by the end of the year."

"I know it's about dating but I believe the work with the agents encompasses all of your life, the stuff I have learnt there from Paul and Anna I have utilised in the world around me," he continued, according to The Sun Online.

But it seems things sadly didn't go that way as the pair moved in together just before lockdown, with Zara later admitting that they had been arguing over small things.

She said in July: "I have learnt more about Sam in the last couple of months than I have the whole of last year. Sam is quite a weird person.

"It hasn't been plain sailing for us like we have argued over the most stupid things. I would think 'Why am I arguing with Sam over who's unloading the dishwasher today?'"

Sam and Zara started dating in April 2019 but reportedly decided to put an end to their romance last month.

A source has said: "Zara and Sam split towards the end of last month.

"They had been arguing a lot since moving in together as a result of lockdown and things just built up between them.

"Zara has moved back to her parents' house in Essex where she's taking some time for herself, she really loved Sam so this hasn't been easy for her."

The source continued to Mail Online: "Sam has gone away to have a break from it all and clear his head away from Zara and social media."
