Zara McDermott boasts some of her best assets come naturally as she shows off taut abs

Since rising to fame on Love Island back in 2018, she has earned herself legions of fans through her fitness videos and jaw-dropping bikini snaps.

And Zara McDermott revealed that she can thank genetics for a number of her assets, including slender arms and an ample bosom, as she took part in a Q&A session with fans on Instagram on Saturday afternoon.

The 23-year-old Made In Chelsea star was asked a range of questions about how she maintained her enviable physique, and she oozed confidence as she showed off her taut abs and also revealed that she enjoys indulging in treats.

When asked how she was able to maintain her bust size while slimming her body down, the brunette beauty shrugged: ‘So the answer down to this question is it’s purely down to genetics. So it’s just the genetic lottery, unfortunately.’

Driving the point home that she possesses favourable genetics, the TV personality went on to answer a fan’s question about how she had such ‘skinny’ arms.

‘A lot of people ask me this all the time,’ stated the reality star. ‘They say, “what workouts do you do?”. But it’s literally just genetics. I don’t actually really do a lot of upper body. I do sometimes, but I don’t really need to.’

Sharing more about her bodily blessings, Zara flexed her taut abs for the camera she explained that she eschews low carbohydrate and keto diets, and also waxed lyrical about the need for low body fat to achieve visible abs.

‘Everyone has abs,’ she explained. ‘You just have to lose the body fat around your stomach, but you can’t pinpoint where to lose your body fat from. So you can do as many sit-ups as you like but you’re not going to lose body fat by doing sit-ups.’

Discussing how she approaches her diet, she said: ‘In the end I decided that life is for living, and if you are going out with your friends occasionally you shouldn’t worry too much. If you want a pasta, have the pasta. I do personally avoid deep-fried foods.’

The star, who recently returned from a romantic break in Mykonos with her beau Sam Thompson, continued in another video: ‘I put on a few pounds when I was in Mykonos, which is not the worst thing in the world.

‘I’m actually really not that bothered about it. I’m just eating healthy this week, although I did have a Chinese last night, which didn’t do me any favours.’

She said in another clip: ‘I don’t tend to track my calories a lot anymore. I’ll try and make sure I’m in a deficit for a few days a week, which is kind of a weird way of doing it, but I just find it kind of works for me.’

Zara, who revealed she’d made many ‘amazing dinners’ during lockdown, said that she and her boyfriend Sam never workout together, because of their differing training styles.

‘But we do always eat similar foods and we eat a lot of protein,’ added the brunette beauty, who revealed that she works out three to four times a week.

Wearing her golden locks in a high ponytail, the star posed up a storm in her barely-there swimwear, which featured a mid-bosom cutout and high-cut bottoms. 

Last week, Sam was delighted when Zara arranged a lavish 28th birthday bash for him on a boat in London, after which she bragged of the stunning details. 

The media personality declared how ‘proud’ she was of herself for pulling off the Spanish-themed party complete with ‘personalised cocktails’ and a ‘tapas dinner’.

The Love Island contestant tagged the businesses in the Instagram post, including a private chef and bespoke cake company, for helping her organise the birthday bash.

Things look like they could be getting more serious between Sam and Zara in the not too distant future, amid claims he is planning to propose.  

 The Sun reports during a screening of Celebs Go Virtual Dating with the cast, agent Paul Brunson told the hunk: ‘I have one question, have you proposed to your girlfriend? 

‘Sam, this is very important, you two are perfect, make that happen, put a ring on it. You need to propose by the end of the year.’ The former contestant of the E4 show reportedly replied: ‘I will. I actually will.’

EXCL: Maura Higgins hits back after ex Curtis Pritchard is pictured kissing blonde dancer

Maura Higgins has reportedly hit back after her ex Curtis Pritchard was pictured kissing the dancer he was rumoured to be cheating on her with.

A source close to the Love Island star, 29, told MailOnline she views his cosy exchange with Amber Pierson as ‘a massive kick in the teeth,’ and believes she ‘should have trusted her gut’ following claims about their relationship in the past.

Maura and Curtis called it quits in March just eight months after leaving the Love Island villa, with sources claiming at the time the Irish reality star felt pressured to maintain the romance to boost their profile, which the dancer strongly denies.

A source close to Maura told MailOnline: ‘This is a massive kick in the teeth to Maura as she did have her suspicions and believes now she should have trusted her gut feeling at the time. 

‘However Maura is in a really great place right now, focusing on herself and her career.’

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Curtis Pritchard for comment.

Mere hours after Curtis was pictured kissing blonde dancer Amber, Maura also took to Twitter on Saturday to cryptically write: ‘The truth always comes out in the end.’  

Love Island star Curtis previously hit back at claims he had cheated on his ex-girlfriend Maura, with Amber, who also called the speculation a ‘complete lie.’ 

However it appears the pair have got close in recent months as they were spotted kissing as they walked through a park in images obtained by The Sun.

Curtis packed on the PDA as he wrapped his arm around Amber and leaned in for a kiss. Amber is also a professional dancer and a model based in London. 

An insider told the publication: ‘It’s game over for Curtis and Amber pretending they are just pals. Their ”friends” line fooled no one.’ 

Curtis is said to have taken Amber out on a double date on Tuesday, where they enjoyed dinner with his brother AJ, 25, and his girlfriend Abbie Quinnen. 

Amber was also spotted out on a trip to Cornwall with the group last week. Scrupulous fans spotted her next to Curtis in a series of snaps shared to Instagram.  

The revelation will likely come as a blow to Curtis’ Love Island ex, Maura, whom  he split from in March. 

MailOnline has contacted Maura’s representatives for comment, a spokseperson for Curtis was unavailable for comment.

Their relationship was rumoured to be on the rocks after speculation surfaced that Curtis was getting overly friendly with the blonde beauty.   

His Irish ex had reportedly confronted him after she noticed him getting to close to comfort with his dancer ‘friend.’  

The red flags went up for Maura when she was alerted to an anonymous tweet, saying that Curtis was spotted ‘hugging and kissing’ the blonde.  

Following the speculation, Amber dismissed claims she’d had a fling with Curtis behind Maura’s back calling them ‘complete lies,’ but branded the Love Island hunk ‘a lovely and talented guy’.

Taking to Instagram, she wrote: ‘I didn’t want to speak out about this, but I feel I have to as I have been receiving a few abusive messages recently regarding what’s been in the papers. 

‘To be very clear, Curtis and I have never been together. We are simply friends and dancer partners! There are 13 dancers going on tour, and I am one of them. 

‘The “cheating” allegations this week are out of the blue and complete lies.

‘I wanted no part in this but what I will say is Curtis is genuinely a lovely and talented guy, who doesn’t deserve any of this. Hope that’s set the record straight and we can move on. Amber x.’

Curtis and Maura found love towards the end of the 2019 ITV series and continued to date for eight months after their exit before their relationship came to end in 2020.   

It was claimed at the time the couple rowed over her friendship with her Dancing On Ice partner Alexander Demetriou.

The Sun reported that Alex’s friendly relationship with Maura caused arguments with his Dancing On Ice skater wife Carlotta Edwards.

Carlotta and Alex have since announced the break down of their marriage, but Maura has always insisted she is just friends with the professional skater.

‘Some days I’ll have energy some days I won’t even want to get out of my pyjamas and that’s totally ok.’

The beauty bundled her hair into a white towel turban and shot the camera a playful glance over her shoulder from behind her round-framed shades in the first picture. 

Anna’s luxury location is home of the Formula 1 Grand Prix, and the model shared a number of snaps and clips to her stories following Lewis Hamilton’s win on Sunday.

Anna appeared on ITV2’s hit show Love Island in 2019, but had little luck in the villa, as two days after coupling up with Jordan Hames, he made moves on India Reynolds.

Love Island’s Curtis Pritchard accused of cheating on Maura after seen kissing blonde ‘friend’

Curtis Pritchard is pictured kissing blonde dancer who he was accused of cheating on ex Maura Higgins with… after insisting they were ‘just friends’

Curtis Pritchard was pictured kissing blonde dancer Amber Pierson in London on Friday, after insisting they were ‘just friends’. 

The Love Island star, 24, previously hit back at claims he had cheated on his ex-girlfriend Maura Higgins, 29, with Amber, 21, who also called the speculation a ‘complete lie’.

However it appears the pair have got close in recent months as they were spotted kissing as they walked through a park in images obtained by The Sun.

Curtis packed on the PDA as he wrapped his arm around Amber and leaned in for a kiss. Amber is also a professional dancer and a model based in London. 

An insider told the publication: ‘It’s game over for Curtis and Amber pretending they are just pals. Their ‘friends’ line fooled no one.’ 

Curtis is said to have taken Amber out on a double date on Tuesday, where they enjoyed dinner with his brother AJ, 25, and his girlfriend Abbie Quinnen.

Amber was also spotted out on a trip to Cornwall with the group last week. Scrupulous fans spotted her next to Curtis in a series of snaps shared to Instagram.  

The revelation will likely come as a blow to Curtis’ Love Island ex, Maura, whom  he split from in March. 

MailOnline has contacted Curtis and Maura’s representatives for comment.

Their relationship was rumoured to be on the rocks after speculation surfaced that Curtis was getting overly friendly with the blonde beauty.   

His Irish ex had reportedly confronted him after she noticed him getting to close to comfort with his dancer ‘friend.’  

The red flags went up for Maura when she was alerted to an anonymous tweet, saying that Curtis was spotted ‘hugging and kissing’ the blonde.

Following the speculation, Amber dismissed claims she’d had a fling with Curtis behind Maura’s back calling them ‘complete lies,’ but branded the Love Island hunk ‘a lovely and talented guy’.

Taking to Instagram, she wrote: ‘I didn’t want to speak out about this, but I feel I have to as I have been receiving a few abusive messages recently regarding what’s been in the papers. 

‘To be very clear, Curtis and I have never been together. We are simply friends and dancer partners! There are 13 dancers going on tour, and I am one of them. 

‘The “cheating” allegations this week are out of the blue and complete lies.

‘I wanted no part in this but what I will say is Curtis is genuinely a lovely and talented guy, who doesn’t deserve any of this. Hope that’s set the record straight and we can move on. Amber x.’ 

Curtis and Maura found love towards the end of the 2019 ITV series and continued to date for eight months after their exit before their relationship came to end in 2020.   

It was claimed at the time the couple rowed over her friendship with her Dancing On Ice partner Alexander Demetriou.

The Sun reported that Alex’s friendly relationship with Maura caused arguments with his Dancing On Ice skater wife Carlotta Edwards.

Carlotta and Alex have since announced the break down of their marriage, but Maura has always insisted she is just friends with the professional skater.

Caroline Flack ‘was being harassed by an ex-partner’, inquest documents reveal 

Caroline Flack was ‘being harassed by an ex-partner’ which added to her stress during the court ordeal that led to her suicide, inquest documents have revealed.

The former Love Island host, 40, had a stalker in the days running up to the court case following an assault on her boyfriend Lewis Burton. 

Flack was found dead at her flat in Stoke Newington, London, next to a note that read ‘please let this court case be dropped’, the day after she heard her trial would be going ahead. 

The harassment was adding to her stress and anxiety, according to a psychiatrist who assessed the star, reported the Daily Star.

The Crown Prosecution Service heard about Flack’s worsening mental health in a medical report two months before she died on February 15.

Lawyers used the information to try to get her assault case thrown out but prosecutors said the harassment was a separate crime.

Yesterday a Metropolitan Police spokesman said there was no record of a harassment allegation made by the star. 

Coroner Mary Hassell recorded a verdict of suicide and banned reporting the name of the perpetrator during the two-day inquest.

She added that the harasser was not Burton, 28, during the hearing at Poplar’s Coroner’s Court in east London. 

The individual responsible was not called forward as a witness.   

After the hearing, which ended on Thursday, Caroline Flack’s mother said police and prosecutors ‘had it in for’ the Love Island host.

She said officials pursued the court case that triggered her suicide because of her ‘celebrity status’.

Yesterday, Scotland Yard defended appealing the Crown Prosecution Service’s original decision to caution her, a move that saw her then charged with assault.

It went on to insist it had not had any contact with her since her first magistrates court appearance in December 23 last year.

A spokesperson for the force told MailOnline: ‘Given the nature of the alleged offence, a domestic abuse case, the police were required to send it to the CPS for a charging decision.’

Flack was arrested in December after striking her boyfriend while he slept because she suspected he had cheated on her. 

Burton did not support the assault charge and did not co-operate with the prosecution.

The CPS had originally decided to issue her with a caution, but the police officer in charge of the case Detective Inspector Lauren Bateman applied for a formal charge, which was then approved. 

In emotional exchanges during this week’s inquest Flack’s mother Christine blasted the senior Met Police officer.

She pointed out officers found her at the crime scene with an injury caused by self-harm.

Accusing DI Bateman of treating her more harshly due to her celebrity status, Mrs Flack told the inquest: ‘She cut her arm. You were putting an appeal in to get her prosecuted, you never bothered to see her.

‘If it had been… an ordinary person, you wouldn’t have prosecuted.

‘I see domestic abuse and I just think you should be disgusted with yourself so there is nothing we can do to bring Caroline back. I hope in hindsight you do regret this. This girl killed herself because you put an appeal through.’

Earlier in the hearing DI Batemen had insisted she had not treated the presenter any differently because she was famous and would not change her decisions.

Love Island’s Wes Nelson reveals he’s signed his first solo record deal

Love Island’s Wes Nelson reveals he’s signed his first solo record deal and teases a ‘debut single is on the way’… after failed X Factor: Celebrity bid

Wes Nelson has revealed he’s signed his first solo record deal after failing to win The X Factor: Celebrity last year.

The Love Island star, 22, took to Instagram on Thursday to announced he’d signed on the dotted line for his contract with EMI Records, and was quick to tease that a ‘debut single was on the way.’

Last year Wes joined Love Island co-stars Zara McDermott, Samira Mighty and Eyal Booker to compete on The X Factor: Celebrity, but the group were eliminated during the third live show.

Hitting the charts! Wes Nelson, 29, has revealed he’s signed his first record deal after failing to win The X Factor: Celebrity last year

Wes shared a gallery of snaps from the moment he signed his contract and described himself as ‘the happiest man on the planet.’

He penned the caption: ‘I am the happiest man on the planet! I have just signed my first record deal with @universalmusicgroup @emirecords.

‘Anyone who knows me knows this is my biggest dream and I’m so f*****g proud! I’d like to thank my managers @rzk_rnr and @so.empire + the Label for giving me the opportunity. 

‘I’ve got a great team around me, this is just the start! The debut single is on the way.’

Wes failed to set the music world alight as a part of No Love Lost last year, and the group parted ways in March so he and Samira could launch solo careers.

The reality star particularly impressed with his rapping skills during the performances, and revealed ahead of the show he taught himself to play the piano.

Elsewhere Wes split from girlfriend Arabella Chi, 28, earlier this summer after nine months of dating.

The pair were said to have ‘grown apart’ and had become more aware of their six-year age gap ahead of their split.

Wes moved out of the home he shared with the model so they didn’t have to isolate together under lockdown rules. He is now living with his friend and former Love Island 2018 co-star, Josh Denzel.

A source told The Sun at the time: ‘It’s all over. They started to grow apart. They want to remain civil with each other and hope to remain friends.’

The news likely came as a shock to their fans, as just a week before they called it quits, the pair revealed that they were enjoying their time in lockdown together.

Speaking to OK! Online, Wes said: ‘It’s been alright. It’s hard to get out at the moment, isn’t it? We’re just trying to do our piece of exercise a day.’
