Caroline Flack STANDS DOWN as host of Love Island

Caroline Flack has decided to stand down as Love Island host four days after she was charged with assault.  

The presenter is said to be ‘devastated’ by the decision, according to The Sun.  

As well as this, a six-figure advertising deal is said to be ‘on hold’ after she was charged with assault last week. 

The Love Island host, 40, was due to fly out to South Africa in just a few weeks’ time to start filming the debut winter series of the ITV2 dating show, but her future on the programme has been called into doubt.  

A source told MailOnline the TV personality had also been lining up a ‘six-figure advertising deal with Polaroid’ which is now ‘on hold’ after her arrest following an altercation with her boyfriend Lewis Burton, 27, at her north London home. 

On the last series of Love Island, Polaroid collaborated with the show and a range of sunglasses was designed for the contestants which were then available to buy on the Love Island website.

MailOnline has contacted a spokesperson for the brand and for Caroline Flack for comment. 

Caroline’s tennis-player/model boyfriend Lewis, 27, defended her on Instagram Stories on Monday, writing that she’s ‘loyal and kind’ and saying she ‘doesn’t deserve this.’

However, the incident has raised questions about her future in TV.

The star is currently slated to launch the winter edition of ITV2’s runaway ratings hit Love Island in South Africa from the start of January.

Also on her busy hosting roster is the upcoming controversial Channel 4 show The Surjury. 

It will see young people pitch ideas for their ‘dream’ surgeries to convince a jury of peers and experts to approve their life-changing operations.

And while TV bosses have yet to officially announce any decisions on how they’ll handle the potential PR minefield of continuing to work with Flack, calls are already being made for her to be sacked, particularly in light of the #MeToo era.

However, she was pictured out in London’s Soho with her PR Nathan Charles on Monday, with a smile on her face, suggesting all is well. 

Her ex-boyfriend, Andrew Brady offered his support to Lewis and messaged the model’s phone, saying: ‘I’m sure this is just the tip of the iceberg.’

But Lewis responded to Andrew’s text telling him to ‘stay out of his business’.

A source close to Andrew told MailOnline: ‘Andrew wanted to be there for Lewis.

‘He text him saying if he wanted to chat then he’d be open to talking as he “knows what it’s like”… but he was also keen to quiz Lewis on whether he’d signed a non-disclosure agreement.

‘Lewis replied telling him to stay out of their business and made clear he’d not been asked to sign any documents.’

On Sunday, Andrew uploaded pictures of a confidentiality agreement, thought to be from when he and Caroline were engaged, with the caption: ‘Abuse has no agenda.’

MailOnline can reveal that Andrew was not paid to sign the document and seemed happy enough to do so at the time.    

A spokesman for Flack told PA news agency in a statement: ‘We confirm that police attended Caroline’s home following a private domestic incident.

‘She is co-operating with the appropriate people to resolve matters. We will not be making any further comment for legal reasons.’

Six police cars were seen outside the TV presenter’s London home in the early hours of Thursday morning.

A man, believed to be Flack’s boyfriend, Lewis Burton, was treated for injuries, but his condition is not thought to be serious.
