X Factor: Celebrity star Zara McDermott may be celebrating having made it to the live shows this weekend but her boyfriend Sam Thompson won't be able to cheer her on.

While she takes to the stage in front of Simon Cowell, the Made In Chelsea lad will be half way around the world in Argentina.

Chatting exclusively to Daily Star Online, Sam said: "I am going to be in Buenos Aires.

"I am going to be away but I guess I will probably have to fly back.

"The thing is though it is a work trip and I'm meant to be out there for three weeks."

Zara will join Wes Nelson, Samira Mighty and Eyal Booker as part of Love Island supergroup The Islanders.

In a boost to their chances, the stars will be mentored by Simon himself.

However, despite his pre-booked commitments, Sam says he is still determined to make it work.

The reality TV star said: "I would fly over mountains for her. I would swim the ocean for her.

"But I don't want to mess up her thing either.

"If I make it back I will have to stay at the back so she can't see me.

"That way she gets her s*** done and then I will hug her after."

X Factor: Celebrity has been met with a mixed response.

While the show has created a lot of buzz online, it's failed to make an impact in terms of ratings.

In fact, episode two saw thousands of viewers in ditch the show after just one week.
