Caroline Flack has stepped down from hosting ‘Love Island’.
The 40-year-old star – who has fronted the ITV2 dating show since its relaunch in 2015 – has decided to step down after she was arrested on Friday (13.12.19) following a domestic dispute with boyfriend Lewis Burton, and she has confirmed she won’t be part of the upcoming winter series.
She told The Sun newspaper: ‘Love Island’ has been my world for the last five years, it’s the best show on telly.
In order to not detract attention from the upcoming series I feel the best thing I can do is to stand down for series six.
I want to wish the incredible team working on the show a fantastic series in Cape Town.
A source said: “This is an absolute nightmare so close to the start of the series. Nobody knows exactly what has gone on, or how the court process will pan out.
“But it’s obviously too much of a risk not to have a back-up plan in place so those conversations have started straight away.”
Laura Whitmore – who is in a relationship with ‘Love Island’ voiceover artist Ian Sterling – is among those reportedly being considered as a potential replacement.
A spokesperson for Caroline previously confirmed the incident and said: “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.”

She told ‘Extra’: It’s really comforting and nice to have somebody onstage with you that loves you and has your back.
It reminds you what’s really important, too, which is the love you have for each other and I don’t just mean that in a romantic way because I felt that way even when we were friends. It’s really nice, really special.
Camila Cabello didn’t kiss Shawn Mendes at the American Music Awards because it felt “weird”.
The 22-year-old singer is dating her ‘Senorita’ collaborator and not only did they perform their track at the ceremony last month, it also saw them win for Collaboration of the Year but fans were left disappointed when they didn’t lock lips on stage to celebrate.
Camila joked about the lack of smooch: “We didn’t give to them. I actually just get shy, weirdly. I feel like I would kiss him in the dress rehearsal, but then we are onstage and then something stops me.”
But the former Fifth Harmony star loves being on stage with the 21-year-old singer because she finds his presence “really comforting”.
She said: “I met him on the Austin Mahone tour, maybe five or six years ago. I for sure had a crush [when we were on Ellen]. We were stupid. I think we both had a crush but were being babies about it. We’re grown now! Definitely had a crush.”
David Crosby is open to a reunion with his former supergroup bandmates Stephen Stills, Graham Nash and Neil Young.
The 77-year-old singer/songwriter former Crosby, Stills, Nash in 1969 with Canadian musician Young joining later and they released eight albums up until 1999.
Crosby would be open to performing with his former bandmates again and he loves them and thinks the music they made together was “great”.
In an interview on ‘The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon’, he said: “Never say never, man. I have no bad stuff in my heart about any of those guys, man, I made too much great music with them. I love them.”
Crosby – who was the guitarist and singer with The Byrds before forming the folk rock supergroup – did acknowledge that he and his former bandmates were “awful to each other” after Fallon pointed out that they don’t speak to one another.
Crosby said: “We bashed heads with each other so many times, I mean we were so awful to each other so many times. All of us were. And I think we all know that.”
The ‘Ohio’ singer revealed that he is regularly contacted on Twitter by fans asking him and the other band members to “get your act together” and reform in order to “be a voice for the people that love you”.
Crosby conceded that in the current political climate it would “be a great time for us to be out singing like that”, then suggesting he would take part in a “get out for the vote tour” ahead of the next American Presidential elections.
