Their relationship is said to have taken a turn due to lockdown, with 23-year-old Zara and 28-year-old Sam constantly arguing.

A source explained: “They had been arguing a lot since moving in together as a result of lockdown and things just built up between them.

“Zara has moved back to her parents’ house in Essex where she’s taking some time for herself, she really loved Sam so this hasn’t been easy for her.”

The revelation comes just days after Sam’s sister Louise posted a cryptic tweet about cheaters – which was said to have been directed at a “friend”, not her fiancé Ryan Libbey.

She wrote at the time: “Cheaters always want you to be loyal while they’re being unfaithful”.

After concerning fans with the wellbeing of her own relationship, an insider added to the publication that things between Louise and Ryan are “really great”.

Sam and Zara used to regularly post loved-up pictures and videos to social media, including their popular TikTok accounts

However, they haven’t shared any couple content since August.

The pair confirmed their romance in May 2019 following Zara’s split from Love Island hunk Adam Collard.

She even joined Made In Chelsea, the show that made Sam and Louise famous, and the former couple were seen regularly arguing about his friendship with ex-girlfriend and co-star Tiffany Watson.

They moved in together at the start of lockdown, with Zara openly admitting that living together had put a strain on their romance.

The social media savvy pair haven't posted content together since August

She said in July: “I have learnt more about Sam in the last couple of months than I have the whole of last year. Sam is quite a weird person.

“It hasn’t been plain sailing for us like we have argued over the most stupid things. I would think ‘Why am I arguing with Sam over who’s unloading the dishwasher today?'”

Meanwhile, in the same month, Sam confessed that he was thinking of proposing to Zara.

The star is famed for being unlucky-in-love and previously appeared on Celebs Go Dating twice.
