All is forgiven? A source confirmed on Sunday evening that Zara – who cheated on Sam – has managed to win him back, after months of trying
It’s not unusual for Zara to share gushing images of her and Sam from the past – having relentlessly tried to get his attention since the cheating scandal came to light in September.
‘Yay finally back together!’ one of Zara’s followers commented under the photo. Another wrote: ‘Fab pic. I sincerely hope you manage to sort out your differences!’
No such activity has materialised on Sam’s Instagram – his latest post being an ad for Captain Morgan rum.
The likes of Pete Wicks and Jamie Laing have been vocal about their disdain for Zara’s infidelity.

Refollowed: Following their split Sam unfollowed Zara on Instagram and publicly ignored her several declarations of love, however he has now opted to refollow her
Sam had previously stated on Made In Chelsea that their 16-month relationship was well and truly over, following revelations she had cheated.
Zara tried to make a coy exit from Sam’s house, carrying the plaid shirt jacket she was pictured wearing during a meet up with Sam last week, as they filmed their final scenes together for MIC before the current series draws to a close.
Shortly after, Sam was also seen leaving the same property.
Following their split in Agust, Sam unfollowed Zara on Instagram and publicly ignored her several declarations of love. He refollowed her a few weeks ago.
Rekindled: Sam called it quits with Zara, after he learned she had cheated on him with a colleague while appearing on X Factor: Celebrity last year
‘Hasn’t been easy’: The pair called quits in September just weeks after enjoying a loved up holiday in Mykonos and Zara has been grovelling for forgiveness ever since
They were also said to have enjoyed a roast dinner with their friends earlier in the month and a source told The Sun: ‘They were all having such a nice time that one got carried away and uploaded a post with Sam and Zara in it, forgetting that they’re not officially together.
‘The friend soon realised their mistake and deleted the post before it drew too much attention. The word amongst their inner circle is they’re back together, but to the public it’s a different story.’
Since then, the blonde revealed she won’t be quitting MIC at the end of the current series, despite recently telling her pal and Sam’s ex Tiffany Watson she plans to move to Los Angeles to pursue her modelling career further.
Tearful: The break-up has played out during recent episodes of Made In Chelsea
During a recent episode of Made In Chelsea, Sam was visited by his pal Reza Amiri-Garroussi who came bearing a letter from Zara.
On the break up, Reza said: ‘Got to say though after meeting her, I did feel bad for her. She’s in a bad way. It’s a s*** situation for everyone involved. But she really is upset. Legit.’
Sam then broke down while reading out the letter from Zara, which read: ‘Dear Sam, since you’ve been away I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting on a lot of things. I’ve reflected on my life and our life together and also the kind of life I want to live…
‘Before I continue with some of the things I need to say, I just want to tell you again I am sorry with my whole entire heart for what I did….

‘I’m so deeply ashamed of my actions and the way I hurt you. I was selfish, immature and stupid. There is no excuse.’
After his meeting with Sam, Reza then reported back to Zara that Sam is ‘completely out,’ despite her attempts and letter to win him back to which she started crying.
Among Zara’s impassioned throwback posts of her and Sam she captioned one: ‘I choose you. And I’ll choose you over and over. Without pause, without a doubt, in a heartbeat. I’ll keep choosing you.’
The post comes after Sam mocked the moment Zara begged for his forgiveness on TV in a now-deleted video, before later apologising for causing any offence and insisting he asked for her permission.
