Caroline Flack: Everything You Need To Know

1. She Splashed Out £1k On Luxury Stay For Pet Dog

Love Island’ host Caroline Flack has splashed out more than £1,000 on a luxury hotel and spa for her dog Ruby, who she loves to pamper.

The ‘Love Island’ presenter – who kept her beloved French bulldog after splitting from former fiance Andrew Brady – regularly treats her pooch to luxurious stays at Little Lord Barkley in Headley, Surrey whenever she has to work away from home.

A source told The Sun newspaper:

“Ruby loves it there and Caroline is reassured with regular videos and updates.

“It will cost a lot to keep Ruby there during her Love Island stint so she hopes she can share responsibility with family. Plus she’ll be nipping back every week.”

The posh pet hotel – which costs £80-a-night – serves Evian drinking water and Harrods and Fortnum & Mason food all prepared by a chef.

And the swanky joint also lets guests have a 24-hour nanny if they upgrade for another £85 a night.

Caroline recently had some pampering done for herself, too.

The star had to have a one-hour bum massage after waking up with a “wonky pelvis”.

The 39-year-old TV presenter visited an osteopath after waking up with an “incredibly bad back”, and she was then diagnosed with a tilted pelvis and had to have the butt and back treatment to get back to normal.

Speaking on her Instagram stories, she said:

“I woke up this morning with an incredibly bad back. I went to an osteopath really early and they said I have a wonky pelvis, which was quite a revelation for a Tuesday.

“I then went to a physio who massaged my bum cheek for an hour which was really nice.

“And then I had a really lovely masseuse to my house and massage my back.”

Caroline feared she wouldn’t be fit for work, but some “firm action and bum loving” meant she was totally fine.

Caroline is probably best known for hosting shows like the XFactor, I’m a Celebrity…Get me out of here! NOW! She was also a contestant on the twelfth series of Strictly Come Dancing and of course, Love Island.

She confessed to feeling protective over the contestants.

She explained:

“Yes (I felt protective) both the boys and the girls. Obviously, with Zara last year, because she had no voice because she didn’t know what had happened I felt like I could be her voice for her.

“It’s the perfect place to find someone to have a bit of fun with. Also, you’ll always fancy someone more when they’re on holiday. Holiday goggles!”

5. She Used To Be A Magician’s Assistant

She had a handful of random jobs before she found fame including working in a pork factory as well as a magician’s assistant.

6. Olly Murs Romance Rumours?!

There have been a lot of different rumours going around about Caroline and Olly’s relationship. During an ITV interview Caroline said:

“This series we’ve become so close, we’ve kind of had to stick by each other and we are just friends, but there’s this innate understanding between us which I’ve never had with anyone.”

She did admit that she once considered dating her co-host but it would have just been too weird and said the pair are more like brother and sister now.

7. She Was Engaged

After a controversial whirlwind fling with One Direction singer Harry Styles, Caroline went on to date music manager Jack Street in 2013 (credited for kickstarting Sam Smith’s music career) and the couple got engaged in 2014 before splitting not long after.

In February, the presenter was reportedly in a new relationship with her personal trainer after she trained with ex-footballer Bradley Simmons. It was later reported that the rumours were in fact, just rumours.

The star said:

“I’ve just trained with Bradley Simmonds and he put me through utter hell, making me do weights that I should not be lifting. But, he says we only have three weeks before Love Island starts or for Love Island prep, so we’ve got to work hard.”

8. She Was Voted 5th Sexiest Woman In 2015

Beating model Kelly Brook, reality star Kim Kardashian and singer Britney Spears. The presenter showed she deserved the position after showing off her enviable figure in a rauncy photoshoot with The Sun.
