Sam Thompson explains "crying" photos

Sam Thompson responds to paparazzi photos from last week's TRIC Awards which appeared to show him crying.

Sam Thompson has admitted that he was "really sad" after paparazzi photos emerged of him appearing to cry at last week's TRIC Awards.

The former Made In Chelsea star was at the awards ceremony with best friend Pete Wicks after being nominated for their podcast Staying Relevant, and in the tabloid photos Thompson is seen outside the venue being comforted by Wicks.

Rumours have suggested that Thompson and reality star girlfriend Zara McDermott have been having relationship issues but in the latest episode of his podcast, he seemed to deny that the incident had been caused by that.

"Firstly, there's no way of getting around it, I had actually received some bad news, so I actually was really sad," he told listeners. "I'm not going to lie about it, but I was.

"I wasn't crying though, I wasn't actually crying. I just want to let everyone know that now.

"There was a paparazzi shot which said 'Sam Thompson crying after THAT argument with girlfriend Zara', after the Soccer Aid thing. They linked both of them together."

He added: "There's a few things here - I was really sad, and Pete being my best mate, he took me outside and the beauty of it was that Pete said 'we can't go out the front' because there were a lot of paps there. So, we went through the back.

"I let it go, I let it all out. I'm literally head-butting Pete's shoulder - I'm literally caressed into his armpit.

"He's being such a good mate and saying he's always there for me and I'm feeling really sorry for myself. I thought, 'at least nobody is going to see this', but little did I know that later that day the pictures were everywhere."

Thompson and Wicks lost out in their category of 'Podcast of the Year' to former footballer Peter Crouch.
