Zara McDermott and boyfriend Sam Thompson are hitting the headlines currently after reports began circulating that they are in 'crisis mode' amid a potential break up. However, neither party has confirmed this.

Meanwhile, the former Strictly Come Dancing contestant and the I'm a Celebrity winner have been dating since 2019 and live in a gorgeous property in south west London thought to be worth more than £1 million.

Zara shares her home with partner Sam

Zara and Sam both like to share videos and photos from their gorgeous home, and once you see the showroom-worthy décor, you'll see why.

There's one reason that some people would hate Zara's home though, and that's the divisive feature of living next door to your sister-in-law! Thankfully Zara gets on incredibly well with Sam's sister, Louise Thompson.

Speaking exclusively to HELLO!, Zara explained: "Our bathrooms are right next to each other. My nephew's bathroom is right next to my dressing room bathroom so sometimes I'm like, 'Are they having bath time?' We are so lucky, we're so privileged and Sam's mum lives on the road behind us so we're all in a little triangle."

Take a tour of Zara's stunning home…

The stars have had their cooking space totally revamped and it now features a giant island with in-built sink and trendy panelling. A trio of pendant lights hang above the island making it a focal point and they have opted for a very chic herringbone flooring.

They keep their garden immaculate

Living in London, Zara and Sam don't have the biggest of gardens, however, their semi-detached property boasts a very neat and tidy outdoor space where they have sun loungers for sun-soaked days outside.

The lounge has a modern monochrome design with white walls, an all-white, cloud-like sofa and statement art on the walls.

How stunning is their bathroom?

Zara declared it their dream bathroom when she took to Instagram for the big reveal of their pretty powder room. The space wouldn't look out of place in a five-star hotel with its unique ribbed free-standing bath and quirky lights in the corner. It looks so zen!

The couple have their own cinema space

The couple took their basement from a dumping ground into a dream relaxation room by creating their own snug cinema. The space features a giant screen, a cosy sofa and a luxury coffee table which has been styled with a golden tray, faux plant and a book.
