Made in Chelsea returned to our screens this week, which reminded us of the day a peroxide blonde nepo baby by the name of Jamie Laing strolled onto our screens and stole the hearts of every viewer.

A few years later, another bundle of blond haired energy by the name of Sam Thompson joined the cast and Jamie took upon himself to take Sam under his wing. The duo were BFFs until Jamie started dating Sam's ex-girlfriend Sophie Habboo and drama ensued.

Years later, Sam is going strong with Love Island 2018 star Zara McDermott and Jamie is engaged to Habbs - but are the two still even friends?

They sure are. Kinda. We think. To be honest, there is no apparent animosity between the two fellas and Sam even admitted, "It’s got nothing really to do with me," when people kept bringing up that Jamie was now with Sophie.

They both still follow each other on social media and throw a few likes each others way every now and then, so as far as we're concerned the bromance is still going strong.
