Sam Thompson admits "feeling lonely" amid Zara McDermott absence

Former Made in Chelsea star Sam Thompson has admitted to "feeling lonely" while girlfriend Zara McDermott spent the day at Wimbledon.

The reality star took to his Instagram Story on Thursday (July 4) to share a video of himself looking disheartened while home alone, before going into his garden to find company in his sister, Louise Thompson.

The clip featured the I'm a Celebrity winner yelling over the fence into his sister's neighbouring garden. "Hello, hello, Louise? Anybody?" he called out.

Sam later spotted Louise and her two-year-old son Leo after climbing through a window onto his roof.

"There. We are part of the fam," he said as he waved to his family from the window.

In a recent interview with Digital Spy, Sam explained how he's eager to host a brand-new dating series, saying: "If anyone is stupid enough to hire me as a host of something. I'd love to do a hosting role.

"I'd love to host a dating show or something like that with Pete [Wicks] – that would be amazing."
