ZARA Mcdermott was all smiles during a night out as her ex Sam Thompson was spotted on a date around the corner from her.
The Love Island star, 23, and the Made In Chelsea favourite, 27, both decided to let their hair down last night without knowing they were three minutes apart from each other.
Zara looked stunning as ever as she enjoyed a slap up meal in central London at Novikov Restaurant, located in the heart of the Mayfair.
The beauty, who was joined by her best pal Ruby Adler, showed off her tiny frame for her night out in some in denim hotpants and a black croptop.
She completed the look with some knee-high boots, a oversized bomber jacket and a hot pink hand bag.
The reality star accessorised her outfit with some oversized gold hoops, flawless make-up and styled her poker straight hair into a middle parting.
While Zara enjoyed a girly date night with her bestie, ex Sam was seen pictured on a date with a mystery woman.
The hunk decided to wine and dine the attractive brunette at Amazonico restaurant – which was just a short walk away from Zara’s choice of place to eat.
The star looked trendy in a black T-shirt with matching skinny jeans and brown Chelsea boots.
His female pal wore a chic cream coat over a minidress and heels.
Their two separate date nights come just one week after HOAR revealed that the pair called time on their 16-month relationship after Zara had cheated on Sam with music boss Brahim Fouradi.
A source close to Zara explained: “Sam suspected quite early on that something was going on between Zara and Brahim, and there was a big confrontation.
“She was spending increasing amounts of time with him backstage, and hanging around after hours.
“Sam found out and kicked off. He’s devastated about how things have turned out.”
The pair grew close during Zara’s stint on X Factor: Celebrity as he was working on the show as a A&R director for Syco.
It looks like Zara has been reflecting on her past actions as since the split she has been posting cryptic quotes on her Instagram.
One said: “Your heart knows the way, run in that direction.”
While another wrote: “Love always won in the end. No matter how it happened, no matter what it took, no matter what it meant. Fair or not, true or not. Love won.
“We have all hurt someone tremendously, whether by intent or accident. We have all loved someone tremendously, whether by intent or accident.
“It is an intrinsic human trait, and a deep responsibility, I think, to be an organ and a blade. But, learning to forgive ourselves and others because we have not chosen wisely is what makes us most human.”
Fans of former couple will be able to find out exactly what happened on up and coming scenes on E4’s Made In Chelsea.
A source told HOAR: “The cameras have captured the whole fallout of Zara and Sam’s dramatic split.
“It means viewers will get to see the raw emotion caused by Zara’s infidelity last year, as Sam tries to come to terms with what has happened.
“There’s going to be a lot of tears and rows as Zara fights for her relationship.”
Despite being out with a mystery woman last night, it looks like Sam has plenty of interest from other girls.
It was recently reported that Chloe Ferry is keen to go on a date with Sam now that he’s single after she liked saw when he was on Celebs Go Dating.
