Made in Chelsea star Sam Thompson has opened up about dating Love Island‘s Zara McDermott, revealing that she “slid into [his] DMs”.

Because of course.

The pair have been heavily rumoured to be an item in recent weeks, having been spotted out holding hands in the tabloids, alongside a few flirty comments on Instagram.

Sam has now admitted that they have been seeing each other – albeit for a short time – explaining how things began between the two.

“She slid into my DMs,” he told OK!. “It was great and I’m glad she did. Do you know what, I don’t want to say too much, but we’ve been on a few dates, it’s been a few weeks now.

“We’re not exclusive, because everyone in this game rushes everything! There’s no need to. If you rush into things, sometimes you make a mistake and it gets too intense… she’s a really, really lovely girl and she’s incredibly beautiful.”

Sam recently appeared on Celebs Go Dating for a second time, and also opened up about what he had learned from taking part in the series.

“Everything I have!” he said. “Don’t rush, and now I ask if I can kiss someone. No-one needs a swerve in their life!”

Sam quit Made in Chelsea earlier this year, later admitting he left after struggling to be around ex-girlfriend Sophie Habboo.
