SAM Thompson signed up to Made in Chelsea as his older sister Louise Thompson’s cheeky sibling.
But the sparky lad has very much stepped out of his big sister’s shadow with a tumultuous relationship with Tiff Watson and was a fan favourite on Celebrity Big Brother 2017. Here’s his story and his dating history…
Who is Sam Thompson, how old is he and what is his background?
Sam Thompson is a 24-year-old reality TV star who joined Made In Chelsea during the sixth series, back in 2013.
Like most of the cast, Sam had a privileged upbringing and attended the £28,000-a-year Bradfield College.
Sam moved into sister Louise Thompson‘s west London flat and was very much a side character to begin with.
He even worked as Jamie Laing‘s Candy Kittens intern – doing menial tasks such as picking up his dry cleaning.
However, following a makeover and a new white pearly smile, Sam stepped out of the shadows and confirmed his place as a key character.
Sam is now a keen vlogger, who has his own YouTube channel.
Who has Sam Thompson dated?
When Sam first joined MIC he tried, and failed, to romance Fran Newman-Young by cooking her a slap-up meal at Louise’s flat.
Sam’s ex-girlfriend Riley Uggla joined the show in 2014, for season 7 of the show, but left after the NYC spin-off series.
Lucy Watson‘s sister Tiff joined the show in 2014, during series 8, and immediately set her sights on Sam.
Cheating allegations about Sam broke the couple apart, but they later reunited.
However, in 2015 the couple split again – after Tiff admitted to sleeping with somebody else while on holiday in Thailand.
The couple got back together at the very end of series 10, but recently split up once more.
Who is Sam Thompson friends with?
Sam’s best pals on the show are Jamie and Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo.
He’s good mates with most of the other guys – apart from Julius Cowdrey, who he fought with throughout series 11 of the show.
Sam and sister Louise have a great relationship, but he loves mocking her Instagram posts.
The prankster has posted several pictures of him dressing up in Louise’s clothes, and mimicking her poses.
While Tiff has helped him in his efforts, making fun of Louise’s work out snaps and videos with personal trainer boyfriend Ryan Libbey.
When did Sam go into Celebrity Big Brother?
Sam is one of the original contestants of Celebrity Big Brother 2017.
He entered the house with the likes of Sarah Harding, Shaun Williamson and Jemma Lucy.
Despite being relatively unknown with viewers, he began the series as a hot favourite with the bookies however he finished third behind Sarah and Amelia Lily.
