The 6 ft 2" boxer kept is cool after the Made In Chelsea star slapped his head, simply taking a deep breath. In through the nose out through the mouth, Tone.
Sam recognised the risk he had put himself under, saying: "That was dangerous, [I] could've got punched there." Watch the hilarious moment below.
Sam smacks Tony Bellew by accident
In camp Sam has held no restraint in expressing how much of a fan of Tony he is. Tony, aka "the Bomber", has made a whopping £9.6 million throughout his boxing career, and has won 30 fights out of 34, with 20 of those being total knockouts.
His fierce boxing career doesn't faze Sam though, as the excitable campmate is often seen leaping into Tony's arms at any given chance.
During their 'Deals On Wheels' challenge Tony looked permanently unimpressed by Sam as they tried to guess the answers correctly.
"We guessed it right," Sam said in glee. "No, I guessed it right." Tony declared. Fans have compared their relationship to Shrek and Donkey's and honestly I think that sums it up pretty well.

A few days prior to the awkward slap incident Tony had compared Sam to a child after he begged to sit on his knee.
In the Bush Telegraph Tony said of Sam: "He’s just a ball of energy. He never stops. I have four kids. It’s not my first rodeo around children. He is literally the most energetic person I’ve ever met in my bloody life!"
Viewers clearly love Sam being full of beans since he was voted to be the camp leader. Addressing his never ending supply of energy, the Made In Chelsea star told Marvin Humes and Josie Gibson that he was diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) just a year before going into the jungle.
"I'd just say you've always got loads of energy... your energy is crazy bro and it's what makes you great," Marvin told him.
