Zara McDermott has revealed she sees herself going the distance with beau Sam Thompson.

The 23 year old, who recently showed off her incredible curves in a new swimwear campaign, explained that the Made In Chelsea star makes her "smile and laugh everyday", which is something she's never experienced with her previous boyfriends.

Speaking about her year-long relationship with Sam, 27, she told MailOnline that she simply wouldn't be with him if she couldn't imagine a future together.

"I would not be with someone who I couldn't see myself being with forever," she explained.

"I know him well enough to know the way we work and being able to smile and laugh everyday is not something I've never had before. Sam teaches me not to take myself so seriously. He brings out all the good in me and that's all I want in a person.

"His sister Louise is like a sister to me now, we are super close and lockdown has brought us together so much.

"I don't know how we're going to have time apart now. I do love him so much – he's the sweetest thing."

At the start of the coronavirus pandemic, Zara was commuting back and forth from her parents' house. Since then, the pair have made the decision to move in together, which the Love Island star says has brought them closer.

Zara, who recently said she would never be friends with Sam's ex Tiffany Watson, said: "Lockdown has been interesting. It forced Sam and I to live together.

"It put us in a position where we had to make a decision to spend months apart or months together.

"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. He needs his space but also likes attention and it's been hard to know when to give him his boy time and when to be a really attentive girlfriend."

While the reality star has enjoyed living with her other half throughout the lockdown period, it hasn't come without it's hardships as the brunette beauty said they've had rows over "stupid things".

She said: "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?'"

These little rows haven't put her off spending the rest of her life with Sam though as she added: "Sometimes I will do the wrong thing and he'll do the wrong thing but it's part of being in a relationship.'
