Sam Thompson left Made In Chelsea after 11 series, announcing this year that he wasn’t returning for series 17
As one of the longest running cast members of the show, Sam left best boi Jaimie Laing, big sister Louise Thompson and brother-in-law to be Ryan Libbey behind as he looks toward pastures new following his second stint on Celebs Go Dating.
Despite his well publicized dating life across our screens and magazines, Sam’s most significant relationship remains his two-and-a-half-year relationship with MiC co-star Tiff Watson – younger sister of Louise's long-time frenemy, Lucy Watson.
“I wasn’t malicious [during the break up], but I wasn’t mature enough,” he told OK! magazine. "If I met her later in life, things would have probably worked out differently. I didn’t pay enough attention to Tiff."
