Fans of Sam Thompson rarely need an excuse to fall more in love with the Made in Chelsea and Celebs Go Dating star.

However, in episode six of MIC, the loveable 26-year-old proved utterly adorable when tasked with the maths equation of 12×12.

Well, adorable or stupid – it’s up to you to decide.

The Rules

Chilling at Jamie Laing’s apartment and playing a game of dominoes – like we all do for fun in midweek – the game’s emphasis on mathematics soon surfaced.

Viewers were expecting American-born Alik Alfus to be the most confused having never played the game, although it was Sam who soon tripped himself up.

Should have stuck with Monopoly, lads…

The Math

Jamie started proceedings off nice and slow, asking Sam the answer to 2×2.

But, from here, things got significantly worse for poor Sammy-boy.

Smug that he had managed to answer a basic primary school maths question, Sam was hit with 12×12.

What happened next is not the sort of thing that is representative of a £28,000-a-year scholarship at Bradfield College…

Sam soon changed his answer, more confidentially answering with 64.

Hmm.

Jamie gave his struggling pal one last chance at hitting the jackpot, questioning as to whether 64 was Sam’s final answer.

It’s like a real-life Who Wants to Be a Millionaire… except they’re all already millionaires.

Finally, with one last push in the right direction, Jamie put on his best teacher voice, guiding Sam via the 10x table.

Still though, no joy.

For the record, 12×12 is 144.

But you knew that already, right?
