The reality stars have been snapped getting up close and personal on a number of occasions since they first met.
In early June, Zara was pictured leaving Sam's Chelsea flat as the two headed off for a breakfast date hand-in-hand.

Following their public display of affection, the famous duo were caught kissing at a polo match, which pretty much confirmed their relationship status.

Clearly beaming in the romantic snap, he wasn't shy revealing exactly how he felt about the Love Island star to his 893k followers.
The 26-year-old also showered Zara with a stream of likes on her social media account, making it public knowledge he only had eyes for the former government advisor.
The latest show of affection has proved that Sam's relationship with MIC co-star and ex-girlfriend Sophie 'Habbs' Habboo is well and truly over.
What has Zara said about Sam?
Despite suffering a public split with her ex-boyfriend and Love Island co-star Adam Collard, Zara hasn't shied from making her romance with Sam known.
Taking to Instagram to share her new relationship with her 1.1million followers, the 22-year-old beauty posted a photo of the two smooching in the sunshine.
Captioning the cute kissing snap, she wrote: "I’m lucky," next to some magical stars, which surely captured how she felt about her new man in that moment.
The affectionate photo silenced rumours the ex-Islander was dating singer Olly Murs after the two met in an Essex nightclub back in March.
