Former Love Island star Zara McDermott has sadly had her car broken into, after a window was smashed and a bag and several of her belongings were stolen. She revealed the scary-sounding news on her Instagram Stories, along with a shot of her car window covered up with a makeshift sheet.

"Love it when someone smashes my car window in and steals my bag and belongings 😍😍😍😍," Zara, who recently fronted a documentary about the impact of revenge porn, captioned the upload.

However, despite the break in, the influencer seemed to be remaining upbeat about the situation and posted further videos of her sat in the car next to her personal trainer, Gary Ward, who kindly loaned Zara the use of his parking spot after the incident.

In a clip of the two in the car, Zara can be seen laughing as she watches Gary park her car into the "extremely tight" space (presumably to keep the vehicle somewhere a little safer over night). She also later shared a shot of a new Jacquemus hat she'd received as a birthday gift from a friend.

Earlier this week, Zara turned 25 and also received an adorable birthday shout out from her boyfriend, fellow reality star Sam Thompson (brother of Louise Thompson).

Alongside a shot of them standing together in front of a Christmas tree, Sam wrote that Zara has been his constant during a very challenging year and thanked her for being by his side during the tough times.

"I wake up every morning wondering whether it’s a dream. Then I see you’re there and realise how lucky I am," he said. "For a multitude of reasons this year has been pretty damn hard. You have remained one of my only constants. Thank you for putting up with me, I know I’m not the easiest at times 😂😅 HAPPY BIRTHDAY! love you moon and stars ❤️❤️❤️".

In response, Zara left a comment saying she was emotional having read the post, "Crying 😢😢❤️❤️❤️❤️ love you so much forever ❤️💗❤️💗".

Here's hoping that whoever broke into Zara's car will be caught soon and her possessions will be returned.
