As reality TV fans, we were delighted when Love Island’s Zara McDermott joined Made in Chelsea as Sam Thompson’s girlfriend in 2019. But Zara has now revealed that she’s taking a break from reality TV, and would instead like to focus her efforts on making factual TV.
The news follows the release of her documentary on revenge porn, which is now available on BBC iPlayer.
The documentary focuses on Zara’s story, as she has been the victim of the crime twice. In it she talks to a number of women who have all experienced different forms of revenge porn.
The programme seeks to warn young women about the dangers of sexting, while reminding viewers the person at fault is not the person who sends the pictures, rather the person who shares them without consent.
Although Zara will no longer appear on Made in Chelsea, she’s revealed her boyfriend Sam isn’t leaving the show.
“I’ve left. Sam’s still in,” she told The Sun’s TV Mag.
The pair’s brief split last year when Zara admitted cheating on Sam was one of the E4 show’s major storyline during the last series, but they’ve since rekindled their romance.
