She said: ‘I had such a nice weekend away, I can’t recommend it enough, especially anyone in relationships, or like me, a new way of life. 

‘Being in a relationship during lockdown, I worried a bit about all the work i did on myself – never wanting to be in a codependent relationship again, it always ends up being unhealthy. 

‘You can’t really depend on anyone else for your happiness or anything. Once you start to become codependent, problems arise, you lose your identity, jealous or more problems in the relationship.   

‘So it was nice for both of us to get away, I love spending time with my friends, so it was perfect!’

‘I don’t condone being unfaithful and I made a huge mistake at a time in my life where I was hugely selfish and immature.

‘I believe I have learnt so much from my mistake. I want to apologise to my Sam for everything I have put him through, for the pain, the embarrassment, the anger and the hurt.

‘All I want to do is make this right and I think the least he deserves is me being honest with myself and all of you. I love you Sam. Forever x’

MailOnline has approached Sam’s reps for comment.

MailOnline revealed last month that Sam had split from Zara after he discovered she cheated on him a year ago.

A source revealed the tryst took place between Zara, 23, and ‘someone in the music industry’ around the time she took part in X Factor: Celebrity.

The reality star appeared on the series last summer and autumn, as part of the Love Island pop group No Love Lost.

At this point, she had been in a relationship with Sam, 28, for several months – but it’s said the Made In Chelsea star has only recently found out about the infidelity.

A source told MailOnline: ‘Zara cheated on Sam with someone in the music industry. Someone connected to the X Factor.

‘Sam is obviously distraught about this. He only found out about it very recently and has escaped for a few days. 

‘Zara regrets it and feels terrible. She knows it was a huge mistake and is extremely upset.’

The couple were an item for 16 months, with Zara joining Sam on his E4 show Made In Chelsea as a cast member.

On the show, she was seen declaring that she wants to marry and have children with Sam. She also moved in with him at the start of lockdown.

Zara reacted passionately when Sam’s ex Tiffany Watson returned to the series this year, upset at the mere idea that Tiff was back on the scene.

The last episode to air this year – before the series was cut short thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic – saw Zara in floods of tears over Sam’s civility towards his former-girlfriend Tiffany.

The exes have remained friends, with Sam even still pally with her father Clive. Yet they have both moved on since their long-term relationship.

While Sam was connected with former-cast member Mimi Bouchard before meeting Zara, Tiff was in another long-term relationship that ended earlier this year.

She has since been liked to MIC star Miles Nazaire and footballer Cameron McGeehan, whom she is now dating.

Zara – who found fame on Love Island two years ago – and Sam called quits on their romance last month, just weeks after enjoying a loved-up holiday in Mykonos.

The end of their relationship comes days after Sam’s sister Louise, 30, posted a cryptic tweet about a friend ‘cheating’ and trust taking ‘seconds to break’.

A source told MailOnline on Thursday: ‘Zara and Sam split towards the end of last month. They had been arguing a lot since moving in together as a result of lockdown and things just built up between them.

‘Zara has moved back to her parents’ house in Essex where she’s taking some time for herself, she really loved Sam so this hasn’t been easy for her.

‘Sam has gone away to have a break from it all and clear his head away from Zara and social media.’

Louise tweeted last Wednesday, ‘Cheaters always want you to be loyal while they’re being unfaithful,’ which prompted fans to assume she had trouble in her own relationship with fiancé Ryan Libbey.

Days later she sparked further speculation by posting: ‘Trust takes years to build, seconds to break, and forever to repair’ followed by ‘I’m proud of my heart. It’s been played, stabbed, cheated, burned and broken… somehow still works.’ 

An insider told MailOnline: ‘Things between Louise and Ryan are really great. Her tweet last week was actually aimed at a friend.’

Zara and Sam, who regularly post on Instagram and TikTok together, haven’t shared any content as a couple since August.

The couple went public with their romance in May 2019, four months after Zara’s split from Love Island co-star Adam Collard.

Speaking in July, Zara said: ‘I have learnt more about Sam in the last couple of months than I have the whole of last year. Sam is quite a weird person.

‘He needs his space but also likes attention and it’s been hard to know when to give him his boy time and when to be a really attentive girlfriend.

‘It hasn’t been plain sailing for us like we have argued over the most stupid things. I would think “Why am I arguing with Sam over who’s unloading the dishwasher today?”

‘Sometimes I will do the wrong thing and he’ll do the wrong thing but it’s part of being in a relationship.’

She said: ‘I would not be with someone who I couldn’t see myself being with forever. I know him well enough to know the way we work and being able to smile and laugh everyday is not something I’ve never had before. 

‘Sam teaches me not to take myself so seriously. He brings out all the good in me and that’s all I want in a person.

‘His sister Louise is like a sister to me now, we are super close and lockdown has bought us together so much.

‘I don’t know how we’re going to have time apart now. I do love him so much – he’s the sweetest thing.’

Sylvester Stallone’s daughters, Sophia and Sistine, fondly reminisced about the ‘beautiful life’ of their grandmother, who passed away at the age of 98 last week. 

During an episode of Heather Dubrow’s World on Thursday, stunning sisters Sistine, 22, and Sophia, 24, discussed their relationship with the larger-than-life celebrity astrologer.

They told the 51-year-old former Real Housewives Of Orange County star that their grandma was still tap dancing and doing Pilates before her death.

Dubrow started the conversation by gushing she had met their grandmother years ago, and described her as ‘fabulous’ and ‘fun.’ 

Sistine nodded eagerly, exclaiming, she ‘certainly’ was, before noting Jackie ‘lived a long, beautiful life.’ 

Meanwhile, Sophia raved about their good genetics, since their father’s mother was just one year and a month from turning 100.

‘She was still tap dancing,’ Sophia gushed, before her younger sister remarked their grandma was still ‘very active.’ 

Sistine joked: ‘The Stallone gene is something else!’ 

Dubrow listened and smiled, before telling the women that their grandma’s longevity is ‘good news’ for them, before complimenting their large, close-knit family.

‘What did you get from your grandma?’ the podcast host asked. 

‘You know, it’s so funny, when I was younger, every time I went over to her house, she had these little Beanie Babies, she collected,’ Sistine recalled, before revealing she has about 50 of them in her room. 

On a more reflective note, Sophia said her grandmother taught her she didn’t have to have her entire life mapped out just yet.

‘You have your whole life to be old,’ Sistine quipped, of what her grandmother would always remind them. 

Additionally, the 47 Meters Down: Uncaged star and her sister said Jackie would advise them to ‘slow down’ and ‘enjoy’ their youth.

The women’s uncle, Frank Stallone, announced the news of Jackie’s death with a Facebook post last Monday, revealing she ‘died in her sleep as she had wished.’

The 70-year-old Grammy Award winner also wrote that Jackie ‘was a remarkable woman’ who worked out ‘everyday’ and was ‘full of spunk and fearless.’  

‘It was hard not to like her, she was very eccentric and flamboyant person.’

Frank provided some impressive details regarding his mother’s life, including that she ‘lived through prohibition, the depression and World War II.’

‘I would talk to her for hours about the 20’s 30’s and 40’s. It was a history lesson. Her mind was as sharp as a razor till the day she died.

‘She never wore a mask a true revolutionary gal. I guess I’m drowning my emotions in tears and to much vino. But when you’ve known someone for 70 yrs it tough and sad.’

Frank informed his following that Jackie ‘had seven grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren’ and that his older brother Sylvester ‘took care of her like a Queen for all of her life.’

Jackie also leaves behind husband of over two-decades Stephen Marcus Levine.

Jackie is known for appearing in the popular Richard Simmons Silver Foxes exercise tapes, which provided low-impact exercise routines for senior citizens.

But Jackie’s biggest passion was astrology, having written a famous book on the subject titled Star Power: An Astrological Guide to Supersuccess, which was published in 1989.

She studied astrology for 15-years under the supervision of a plethora of acclaimed astrologers, including the ‘protegees of Evangeline Adams, the greatest astrologer of the Twentieth Century.’

Up until her death, Jackie could be seen engaging in weight lifting exercises, which she often filmed and uploaded to her Instagram page.

She would also refer to herself as Mamma Rambo, Mamma Stallone and Mamma Rocky as a way of paying homage to her Sylvester’s most legendary roles.

Earlier this month, Melanie spoke of how she ‘struggled’ with an eating disorder and depression after the pressures of her Spice Girls fame ‘pushed her to the point of illness’. 

The singer, who rose to prominence as Sporty Spice in the hugely successful nineties pop group, described how she found the lows of fame ‘devastatingly hard’. 

Mel, who was 20 when she responded to an advert to form a girl group in 1994, told how she had ‘everything’ she had ‘ever dreamed of’ but was ‘desperately unhappy’.

Speaking to The Observer, she said: ‘The lows of being famous were devastatingly hard.’

She continued: ‘It pushed me to the point of illness. I was struggling with an eating disorder and suffering from depression. 

‘I had everything I’d ever dreamed of, and was desperately unhappy. It’s often forgotten that people in the public eye are human.’ 

The 1996 Wannabe hitmaker, mother to 11-year-old Scarlet who she shares with her ex Thomas Starr, described how she was ‘ashamed’ to accept help and ‘could see not way out’.

However the songstress revealed how ‘when the time came’ she sought professional help and has urged others to get to the point when they are ‘ready’ to receive help.  

Melanie said she was ‘struggling to get out of bed’ and was ‘very teary’ at the depths of her depression before she sought help in 2000 during a trip to LA with her family. 

Speaking to The Mirror, she said: ‘I didn’t have the will any longer to stay in this life.
