Caroline Flack, presenter of UK Love Island, pleads not guilty to assaulting boyfriend



Caroline Flack, presenter of the UK version of Love Island, was arrested and charged with assault by beating on December 12th. She appeared in court today and pleaded not guilty. She will stand trial on 4th March 2020 and is currently released on bail. The terms of her bail mean she cannot have any contact with her boyfriend, former tennis player Lewis Burton, either directly or indirectly (i.e. posting on social media).


The first winter series of UK Love Island (series 6) is due to begin on January 12th 2020. Caroline was due to host it, as she has hosted every other series of UK Love Island since its revival in 2015. A few days after her arrest Caroline announced that she had stood down as host for series 6, though it seemed that both Caroline and ITV were leaving the door open for a possible return for series 7 onwards (summer 2020). Laura Whitmore has been announced as the host for series 6. Her boyfriend, Iain Stirling, has narrated the show since series 1.
