Former I'm A Celeb winner Sam Thompson is reportedly keen to get down on one knee and propose to girlfriend Zara McDermott. He could pop the question in a matter of months.

The reality TV stars currently live together in their gorgeous West London home with their two cats. Former Love Island star Zara took a leap of faith and private messaged Sam, and the rest they say, is history, as they look to the next huge milestone.

It could happen sooner than we think, with a source telling OK! Magazine: "Insiders say Sam is very close to proposing to Zara and think he will do it by the summer as they talk about getting married all the time and what their wedding would be like."

They continued: "They’re torn over having a traditional English wedding or doing something abroad in somewhere like Ibiza and just having all their friends and family out there for a few days. They both love a party and want to be able to celebrate in style."

The couple began dating back in 2019 when Zara 'slid' in Sam's DMs. However their romance hasn't always been smooth sailing, with the pair briefly splitting up after Zara admitted to cheating allegations.

Zara, who appeared in the recent series of Strictly Come Dancing, made a public apology to Sam and they managed to reignite their romance once more following a series of tough conversations, which aired on Made In Chelsea.

Speaking earlier this year about where the couple are at with marriage talk, Sam admitted: "We speak about marriage a lot, but there's no pressure to put a ring on it."

Sam and Zara have recently returned from a trip to Ibiza, alongside Sam's best pal Pete Wicks. The group travelled to the sun-soaked location to film a special episode of Sam and Pete's Staying Relevant podcast.

Although it remains a mystery if their wedding would take place abroad or closer to home, the source told the publication it would most definitely be a family affair - with both Sam and Zara very much family orientated.

Sam's sister Louise would be involved, alongside the couple's pal, former TOWIE star Pete. They said: "Obviously Pete would be best man and Louise would be a bridesmaid. And as soon as Sam officially pops the question, Zara will be going into full 'bridezilla' mode. She can't wait to go dress shopping, venue hunting, find a band, sort caterers etc..."

The pair have had hectic work schedules as of late, with Sam's stint in the jungle whilst Zara was taking part in BBC's Strictly. Not only were they like passing ships in the night, Zara was also busy filming four-part BBC Three programme, Ibiza: Secrets of the Party Island.

Perhaps with work opportunities settling down, now would be the perfect time? We are sure the happy couple will announce the news when it comes.

"It has been really full-on for both of them since Sam won the jungle with lots of work commitments and they haven't seen each other as much as they like, but it's only made them stronger and realise that they want to spend forever together," the source added.
