The couple have had a rocky year but are moving forward and Sam is excited to take the next step in their relationship.

“Not in the next year…” Sam then mused over when he and Zara would start a family – a pair who regularly play pranks on each other. “But not in the too distant future.


“I don’t want to be a really old dad. But I do need to grow up a little bit first.”

It's taken time for the couple to get back on track after 24 year old Zara cheated on her beau last year.

After Zara confessed to cheating on her beau in Made in Chelsea last year, Sam was devastated at first.

But the star decided to take his partner back and the pair have been going from strength to strength since, including moving in together and taking time out for holidays abroad.

Looking back on the difficulties they faced, Sam has said he “hated” that time and “didn’t enjoy it at all”, but insisted he has always handled things by making them seem lighter and laughing through them.

“That’s always the way I’ve been,” he said, but admitted that method was “probably a defence mechanism”.

Sam, who recently celebrated his birthday with friends and family, knows there are also people struggling in much worse situations and dealing with greater heartbreak in the world, and he’s grateful that “relationship drama” is his main drama at all.

The former SAS Who Dares Wins contestant added that he always knew he loved Zara and wanted to make their relationship work in the long-term, and he can’t judge because he’s also done “stupid stuff” in the past.

Sam was caught out for cheating on Made in Chelsea himself, when he kissed another girl and was unfaithful to ex-girlfriend 27 year old Tiffany Watson.
