However, after being evicted last night, Sam told BuzzFeed the show definitely played up their rivalry and the way the two were portrayed was "very different to real life".

"We were actually good mates in the house, and even outside the house we keep in contact and speak every week. The way the show portrayed us was very different to real life," Sam said.

He was also aware Rhys told Georgia that Sam, "wasn't there for the right reasons".

"Well, I knew it was coming," Sam said. "After we both got kicked off, he called and apologised and told me he threw me under the bus. We talk every week so he apologised again and again, but it probably wasn’t his smartest move."


But that doesn't mean Sam didn't do his fair share of winding Rhys up.

"I encouraged him to 100% read poetry at every single cocktail party and to my delight he actually did do that. I’m sure the viewers enjoyed that!” Sam laughed.

And as for the rumours Sam wasn't there for the right reasons?

"I’m not opposed to falling in love," Sam said. "On TV, you definitely only saw one side of me, especially in that last episode. The only thing that really got to me was the fact that I looked like I was just there to further my career which is not the case at all. There were a few things that were a little out of place, but it’s all part of the game."
