Zara McDermott declared unstoppable by beau Sam Thompson ahead of Strictly

Sam Thompson and Zara McDermott get competitive

Sam Thompson has claimed in a new interview that “nothing” can faze Zara McDermott, as she prepares to go to battle with a host of other celebrities for Strictly’s Glitterball trophy.

“Zara handles pressure. She’s cool,” he told the Daily Star in an interview ahead of her debut.

“Zara’s worked so hard that nothing, I don’t think, will ever faze her. I genuinely don’t,” he continued.

“I’m lucky enough to have been with her for four and a bit years now and when she puts her mind to something, she’s absolutely unstoppable.

“I haven’t seen anything faze her yet.”

The star, who has over two million followers on Instagram, has already demonstrated her incredible versatility, despite being just 26 years old.

She once had a government job, in which she was a part of a team responsible for briefing the Prime Minister, and she posted selfies of herself at 10 Downing Street.

Later, she made a name for herself as a fashion influencer, boasting an increasingly sexy wardrobe full of bikinis and stylish dresses.

Ultimately, she then transitioned to a reality TV contestant thanks to her stint on Love Island, and her subsequent hosting role on BBC Three’s Love In The Flesh.

Zara has also got her teeth into some serious and hard-hitting topics, bringing to life documentaries on issues such as eating disorders and revenge porn.

It was announced earlier this summer that she’d be fronting an additional new documentary on the popularity of party island Ibiza and the magnetism it holds for Brits.

“As the ‘Instagram effect’ makes Ibiza the place to be seen for more and more young Brits, I’m keen to explore how the island operates and deals with the challenges this poses,” she stated ahead of the four-part show’s screening on BBC Three.

Inside Ibiza is due for release next year, but in the meantime, she’s raring to go on Strictly.

Unable to contain her excitement, she enthused that she’d grown up with the show and had fond memories of watching it with her grandmother.

“I am so excited to be joining the world of Strictly!” she exclaimed, recalling “dancing around the house” to the tunes at home.

“I even remember the first ever series, and being mesmerised by all the beautiful dresses! I can’t wait to throw myself into this experience and start training. It’s going to be incredible.”

Meanwhile, boyfriend Sam has already teased that the pair have been waltzing around the kitchen in readiness for whatever challenges Strictly might throw at her.
