Zara McDermott and Sam Thompson have sent fans wild with their latest 'engagement' photo.

It all began with the Love Island star sharing a totally loved up snap alongside her Made in Chelsea boyfriend.

"Me & you, always," she captioned the photo.

Lots of her followers rushed to comment about a potential engagement on the horizon with one person writing, "If Sam doesn't propose this holiday..."

"Instantly thought this was a proposal," said a second followers.

"Thought I spied an engagement ring then?" wrote another fan.

A fourth commented, "I can see a 💍".

One more added, "Bet they are getting engaged".

And after one person wrote, "Omg I saw this and for some reason thought you were engaged haha", Zara replied and said, "Erm I think you'd probably know before me".

This isn't the first time the reality star couple sparked engagement rumours.

Last year during a romantic getaway in the Maldives, fans thought Sam could be using the trip as a way of popping the question.

Someone else said, “You are soooo lucky Sam to have the beautiful Zara by your side, pleaseee propose,💖💖💖💖💖💙🙏”.

One more simply quoted Queen Bee - aka Beyonce - herself, “If you like it then you gotta put a ring on it 🎼😍💍”.

Beyonce's never wrong Sam.

The couple’s relationship has been a rocky one, after Zara confessed to Sam in 2020 that she had been unfaithful.

But after some time apart and Zara begging Sam to forgive her while filming for Made in Chelsea, he finally did and the two rekindled their romance.

Sam at the time told MailOnline,“Forgiveness allows you to heal. You can only heal when you forgive the other person and get over that.”

The MIC star continued, “I would definitely say no matter what you should always try to forgive and you'll feel better in yourself – it's f---ing easier said than done but you've got to strive for that.

“The people I care about caring about me will know we're all human. We are all human and you can't grow and evolve and be a better person without making mistakes along the way. For that to be shown on TV, it almost humanises you and makes you more relatable.”

A heartbroken Zara begged Sam for a second chance after they split and reportedly sent him love letters and gifts as well as a promise ring.

But MIC fans will know that Sam himself is no angel and he was previously caught cheating someone else during his infamous relationship with Tiffany Watson.

He said, “I have had a lot of f--- ups in my own life. Being on TV, it accelerates your personal growth because of how many people do watch and everything you do gets so many opinions and you get so much feedback. It does shape you as a person.”
