Sam Thompson proved the ever doting boyfriend as he met Zara McDermott's Strictly Come Dancing partner Graziano Di Prima.
The former Made In Chelsea star, 31, jokingly labelled Graziano "better looking" than his best pal, ex-TOWIE star Pete Wicks with fans predicting that the latter might become 'jealous'.
Sam is often posting comical Instagram videos alongside Zara, 26, and Pete – which have continued to be a hit with fans. But aside from the jokes and playful banter, Sam has never shied away from publically supporting his girlfriend on her successes, from fronting a series of BBC documentaries to her latest venture on Strictly.
Zara who appeared on Love Island back in 2018 made her debut on the hit BBC show as it returned on Saturday, 16 September, alongside her professional dance partner Graziano Di Prima. Wasting no time in introducing him to the family, the Italian dancer popped around to their Chelsea pad and met doting boyfriend Sam.
Sharing a series of snaps alongside Graziano, Sam wrote the caption: "I got to meet Zara’s strictly pro! Just a better looking Pete wicks really. Even got him in my red boots! @grazianodiprima you’re an absolute legend sir, and I CANNOT wait for all the TikTok’s (why am I so hunched)."
The reality TV star is known for his close relationship with former TOWIE star Pete Wicks from filming various humorous videos and their Staying Relevant podcast. And the lookalike didn't go unnoticed as Sam labelled Graziano "a better looking Pete" with many fans agreeing and predicting "jealousy".
One wrote: "LMAOOO Pete’s been replaced" and a second said: "Pete's gonna be jealous!"
"Well @p_wicks01 has been demoted now". another added.
Zara wasted no time in commenting on her boyfriend's post and wrote: "the way you forced @grazianodiprima to try on those boots as a way of baptising him into the household." Before adding Sam's post to her Instagram story with the caption "My two favourite weirdos", alongside a love heart emoji.
One photo saw Sam with his arm around Graziano pointing to the viral big red boots that the dancer was wearing while sitting on their bed. He lifted one of his legs up while someone, who could have been Zara, attempted to pull it off.
It comes after Zara opened up about the supposed Strictly 'curse' during an interview with The Sun's Fabulous Magazine. She told the publication "We've never had to have that conversation because we both work in very intense environments."
She later continued: "We would never hold each other back from doing anything. Neither of us are jealous people."
When asked how she's feeling about Strictly Zara explained: "I think I’m probably the most nervous I’ve been in my life. I’m not a natural-born performer or extrovert, so this is the biggest challenge of my life!"
Sam gushed in another Instagram post following Zara's Strictly debut and wrote: "Me and my tiny dancer. I am so god damn proud of her at the moment. The journeys only just begun goose." alongside a glam snap of the pair from this year's NTA's.
