Zara McDermott and Sam Thompson reportedly broke London's Tier 4 restrictions for a romantic holiday in Maldives.

Love Island's Zara, 24, and her reality star boyfriend Sam, 27, were allegedly spotted flying out of the country's capital on December 27 to stay in luxury resort Ayada Maldives – where they previously spent time in December 2019.

However, the brunette beauty has continued to post photos on her Instagram feed by marking her location as London, including several of herself posing in nothing but a black long-sleeved cropped top and blue jeans.

Eagle-eyed followers couldn't help but notice something odd when Zara, who previously fired back at trolls after being accused of "breaking lockdown rules", shared a screenshot of comments sent by her fans on her Instagram stories in reply to a video she posted of herself watching Sam on the PlayStation.

"She posted screenshots of messages she had received to her Instagram Stories showing a time zone, which is hours ahead of the UK. As soon as followers started commenting, she quickly deleted the stories."

"Sam has gone silent on his Instagram, which is probably the more sensible thing to do."
