Sam Thompson has liked a tweet showing support for Zara McDermott amid their split.

The 28 year old split from Zara, 23, last month after it was reported that the Love Island star had cheated on him during her time on The X Factor: Celebrity.

After scenes showed her begging for his forgiveness on Monday night's Made In Chelsea, Sam has now seemingly defended his ex-girlfriend by agreeing with a supportive tweet towards her.

A Twitter user wrote to their followers: "Yes, Zara made a mistake. A big one. But damn — can we not pile on someone who's young and happens to be messing up in the public eye?

"Have we not learnt anything? Humans f**k up. That's what we do. Let her live in peace as she figures this s**t out for herself."

The Made In Chelsea fan added: "Imagine making one of your biggest mistakes in life, just for your name to trend on Twitter and for everyone to call you names and comment on what you've done.

"I cannot imagine getting through that unscathed and mentally sound. I imagine she's already ashamed enough!"

Sam 'liked' the tweet, making it visible to his 180,000 followers whilst many others agreed with the fan's point.

One commented: "Completely agree. In fact I've been there and the heartbreak you feel knowing you've destroyed your potential future happiness. I really felt for her. I really hope they work it out."

A second added: "I completely agree that we shouldnt pile on the hate, but we should talk about it, its on TV, thats what it is there for. We can have a conversation about it without it being full of hate [sic]."

As a third wrote: "THANK YOU! I don't believe Sam should get back with Zara — BUT let's not kick Zara when she's down.

"I know the no tears crying is weird but in private I have no doubt she's devastated. She messed up. Now what? I don't want her to hate herself."
