Zara McDermott responds to Sam Thompson 'row' reports

Zara McDermott has responded to reports that she and boyfriend Sam Thompson had a row following Sunday night's Soccer Aid.

The annual charity football game sees professional footballers team up with celebrities in a match between England and an international World XI team. Made in Chelsea's Sam played for England, who ended up winning the game 6-3.

Zara and Sam were photographed on Sunday night having a seemingly heated discussion outside the Soccer Aid afterparty at the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington.

However, Zara has shut down the row reports by sharing the true nature of their conversation.

"Why does this make me laugh so much btw," she captioned one of the photos on her Instagram Story, alongside some laughing-face emojis.

Sharing what she was really saying to Sam, Zara continued: "'Stop saying you should have scored!!!! You did your best and that's all that matters!! You need to stop doubting yourself!!!!'

"It looks like we are arguing but I'm actually telling him positive affirmations in a very positive manner."
