As he posted a throwback snap of himself and Sam embracing while on holiday, he wrote below it: “Head up you creepy, annoying but genuinely lovely fella.

“You got this,” before tagging Sam and ending the sweet message with a red heart emoji.

And when asked how Sam is doing, Pete told OK! online: “Do you know what, what people are watching the show now is stuff that has been filmed a while ago.

“He’s alright, I speak to him a fair bit and he’ll bounce back like everyone does.


“He’s had a rough couple of months but you live and learn and you move forward.”

Pete also shared his views on if he thinks the pair will reconcile their romance, after Zara made a public tribute to Sam on her Instagram page.

When asked if he thinks Zara and Sam will reignite their romance, the TOWIE hunk explained: “Listen, it’s not my place to say and I think it’s down to them whatever they do, like anyone of my mates I would support whatever he decides to do.

“But, you know, her hinting… I wouldn’t read too much into that.”

It comes after dramatic scenes on Made in Chelsea scenes showed Zara, who explained why she hid her cheating from Sam, break down in tears as Sam ended their romance.

As they met in a park after he discovered she had cheated on him during her time on The X Factor: Celebrity last year, he told her: “Zara, look, I’m the first person to hold my hands up and say: ‘Look, I’ve done some f**ked up s**t’ for sure. But I’ve never done anything like that.

“The seediness of consistently s**ging while you’re calling me to tell me that you can’t come home when the rest of your band are at home in bed with their other halves.” Zara broke down and insisted: “It wasn’t like that.”

Sam then decided to take some time away as Zara tearfully begged for his forgiveness.

As the emotional scene ended Sam said: “For me I can’t do it,” as Zara continued to beg him but he insisted: “I think I just need to figure out whether I can do this. I can’t be around at the moment. I need to go figure my head out. I just need space.”
