Sam Thompson to move on from Zara McDermott with Geordie Shore star?

We NEVER saw this coming

Sam Thompson Geordie Shore

by Nathan Katnoria |

They were one of our fave celeb couples but it was revealed last week that Made in Chelsea’s Sam Thompson and Zara McDermott had shockingly split amid claims she cheated on him while starring on The X Factor: Celebrity last year.

Their explosive break-up is set to air on the next series of the E4 reality show and while it’s been said that Zara is “fighting so hard” to win back her ex, she might have some competition as it’s been claimed there’s another reality star waiting in the wings to help Sam get over his heartbreak.

According to reports, Geordie Shore star Chloe Ferry has set her sights on Sam and is hoping her management will be able to set up a date for them.

A source told The Daily Star, “Chloe has fancied Sam Thompson for a while and has asked her management to try and organise a meeting between her and Sam now he is single.

“She didn't fancy him until she saw him on Celebs Go Dating and thought he was cute.

“She thinks he's really funny and goofy which she loves and now he's a single man she's keen to meet up with him and see what happens.”

Now, there’s nothing we love more than a shock celeb romance, but we REALLY didn’t see this one coming.

And we're sure Chloe's Geordie Shore co-star Amelia Lily will have something to say now that she's reportedly interested in her ex.

We've contacted Chloe's reps for comment.

Made in Chelsea most dramatic splits

The OG tragic split, even featuring an IRL (well, scripted reality) leaving at the airport scene. Spencer and Caggie weren't officially a couple, with Spencer dating model Funda Önal, but the chemistry between them was undeniable and for a long time Spenny thought of her as the love of his life. Eventually, feeling played by Spencer stringing her along while refusing to dump Funda (we don't blame her, tbh) Caggie left to pursue a "music career" in New York, and Spencer, realising the error of his ways, rushed to catch her at the airport to win her back. He missed her. Talk about dramatic.

Cast your minds back to the first series and you will remember that a long-locked Ollie Lock was in fact dating a woman - aspiring pop star Garbriella Ellis, no less. But the couple split because Ollie was confused about his sexuality, and he quickly went on his "first ever" date with a man, leaving Gabriella heartbroken. So heartbroken, in fact, that she wrote her next pop song, Fight, about him, and there were some bizarre scenes in series two when she cast an Ollie lookalike to play the role of the leading man (subtle, hun).

We all know how this turned out IN THE END, but cast your minds back to series one and you'll remember the OG Chelsea power couple met a very messy end when Millie found out that Hugo (best mate of slimy Spencer Matthews) had cheated on her with HER best friend, the unassuming Rosie Fortescue. Cue a VERY dramatic speech at a party where Millie outed their betrayal in front of all their friends, making for possibly one of the best MiC scenes to this day.

After Caggie, Spencer's next conquest (in fact there might have been a few in between, to be fair), was weepy Louise Thompson, who was regularly reduced to tears by his womanizing ways. For some reason she stayed with him through multiple infidelities (seriously, we don't get it?) but things eventually came to a head when Spence met Louise at a bridge by the Thames (a classic) and told her he couldn't respect her when she "allowed" him to cheat on her.

We were all rooting for Binky and new boy Alex Mytton when he showed up in series five, but it quickly became apparent he was one of the 'bois' by how well he got along with resident villains Spencer and Jamie Laing. They were a cute couple for a while, but Binky eventually split with Alex after learning he'd cheated on her on a night out with Spencer. She later found out the night in question had actually been an ORGY, which made things ten times worse. Poor Binks.

Ah, young love's dream. Except, not really, because a freshly de-cherried (presumably) Sam Thompson simply could not keep it in his pants during his two year relationship with Tiffany Watson. The couple eventually split during tearful scenes in Croatia, with Tiffany quitting the show shortly after. However, after Sam returned in 2019 with his Love Island girlfriend Zara McDermott in tow there were some seriously tense scenes where Sam very much gave the impression he wasn't over his first love.

This one ruined us. Sure, New Yorker Alik was a bit of a bumbling idiot, and moving to the UK and asking Louise to marry him was A TAD overkill, but the scenes where Louise decided she couldn't go through with it and gave the ring back were peak heartbreak. There was later talk that their split had something to do with fellow American cast member Stephanie Pratt, but she hit back with a tweet saying, "Uhhh no she was shagging her trainer since March." She's now engaged (or is she?) to said trainer, Ryan Libbey.

We hate to say it, but Chelsea OG Jamie Laing just doesn't seem like he deserves a girlfriend. Not that Frankie Gaff was our fave, but is there a single partner Jamie hasn't done the dirty on? His relationship with Frankie was particularly eye-roll, but Frankie gave as good as she got when she went after Jamie's boi Alex Mytton and allegedly hooked up with TOWIE's Dan Edgar. They eventually split after one too many tearful confrontations at the dinner table with friends, and Frankie quit shortly afterward.

After meeting on the set of one of 'photographer' Liv's nude shoots, it was love at first sight for these two and they managed a pretty normal relationship for a good few series. But things started getting rocky in series 18 with Digby increasingly frustrated by Liv's social life and Liv feeling stifled. At the end of the series after some major on-ing and an off-ing, Digby left for South Africa for work for three months, but then Liv went on Celebs Go Dating and the former couple shared some cut throat digs on Insta.

Let's face it - the golden era of MiC ended when the last remaining connections to the OG cast faded from the show (excluding Jamie Laing, obv), and we've been less invested in their relationships since then. But a special mention goes to Maeva D'Ascanio and Miles Nazaire. As each others' first loves in their native France, Maeva followed Miles to London where she joined the MiC cast and after a full series of heartbreak, the couple agreed to move on. We're sure Miles didn't have his best mate James Taylor in mind for Maeva's next squeeze, though. Awks.

After meeting on the celeb circuit, Sam brought Love Islander Zara onto MiC with him (despite her being very much not from Chelsea) in 2019 as he returned from a break from filming. Cue VERY awkward exchanges with his ex, Tiffany, who also picked that series to return. In September 2020 allegations of Zara cheating on Sam during her stint on The X Factor came to light (oh how the tables have turned, hey Sam?) and their dramz split is set to play out on the upcoming series.

This all comes after Chloe finally cleared up rumours she was back with her on/off ex Sam Gowland in an exclusive chat with heatworld.

Although she recently looked for love on Celebs Go Virtual Dating, it was reported that Chloe jetted out to Dubai to celebrate Sam’s birthday and faked a trip to Ibiza in an elaborate plan to keep their rekindled romance under wraps.

But the 25-year-old set the record straight, telling us, "Can we put this to bed, please? Me and Sam are not in a relationship. We're not a couple and we're not seeing each other. Me and Sam are just friends.

“We will never, ever be in a relationship. I was going to put a story out there saying 'why are people saying [that we're back together]?' but it would've added more fuel to the fire. Let's make it clear; me and Sam are not anything, we're just friends.”

Meanwhile, Sam (Thompson, that is) broke his social media silence earlier this week to thank BFF Pete Wicks for being there for him to “lean on” while he was “down” after the pair spent the week reportedly filming the celebrity edition of The Circle.

He shared a photo of him and Pete, in which he’d aged the Essex lothario’s face using an app, on Instagram and wrote, “Thank you so much for putting up with me for the past week @p_wicks01 I’m incredibly lucky to have people I can lean on when I’m down.

“I know you’re not the soppy type, but you really are the brother I never had. I love you mate ❤️ #WEGOAGAIN💪🏻 good to see I haven’t aged you over the past 6 days 😂.”
