Fans have pointed the finger at Megan McKenna as the mutual friend who spilled the beans about Zara McDermott's cheating to Sam Thompson.

Megan starred on The X Factor: Celebrity with Zara last year, which is when the Made in Chelsea star admitted she had slept with another man – thought to be music boss Brahim Fouradi.

The former TOWIE star has also remained very close friends with her ex Pete Wicks – who happens to be one of Sam's best pals.

One fan wrote on Twitter: "Apparently the source who informed Sam Thompson about Zara was Megan McKenna.. dots connected."

Another said: "My money is on Megan McKenna being the mutual friend who spilled all. She was on X-Factor with Zara, pals with Pete Wicks again and Pete is besties with Sam. #MadeInChelsea."

And one added: "Maybe Megan McKenna told Pete about Zara cheating and Pete told Sam?? Megan and Zara were both on the X Factor and Megan and Pete are friends now??"

Pete opened up to OK! about the recent split, insisting that fans “shouldn’t read too much” into Zara’s efforts to win back Sam. He said: "Do you know what, what people are watching now is stuff that has been filmed a while ago.

“He’s alright, I speak to him a fair bit and he’ll bounce back like everyone does."

Fans saw the collapse of Zara and Sam's relationship on the latest episode of Made in Chelsea. The pair met in the park for a tense talk about the cheating revelations surfaced.

Sam told her: “Zara, look, I’m the first person to hold my hands up and say: ‘Look, I’ve done some f**ked up s**t’ for sure. But I’ve never done anything like that.

“The seediness of consistently s**ging while you’re calling me to tell me that you can’t come home when the rest of your band are at home in bed with their other halves.” Zara broke down and insisted: “It wasn’t like that.”

Sam then decided to take some time away as Zara tearfully begged for his forgiveness.

As the emotional scene ended Sam said: “For me I can’t do it,” as Zara continued to beg him but he insisted: “I think I just need to figure out whether I can do this. I can’t be around at the moment. I need to go figure myself out."
