Caroline Flack, 40, made public vow to toyboy beau, 27, just WEEKS before shock assault arrest

Caroline Flack made a gushing profession of love to boyfriend Lewis Burton just weeks before her shock arrest for assault.

Fans were left stunned on Friday when it was claimed that the Love Island host, 40, had been arrested and charged with assault after an alleged fight with her tennis player boyfriend, 27, at her in north London home.

Taking to Instagram last month, Caroline revealed Lewis had planned a surprise party to mark her milestone birthday while she penned: ‘Think I'll keep you forever Lewis Burton. Thank you all for the most incredible surprise’.

Things appeared to be wholly more promising between Caroline and Lewis in November when they headed to Mayfair’s Bagatelle restaurant where he had gathered all her nearest and dearest to celebrate her 40th birthday.

Lewis was seen holding her handbag as they entered the party. 

Instagram was littered with snaps and videos of the party, where she was treated to a personalised bottle of vodka, a magnum of champagne and listened to tracks including 1979’s Escape (The Piña Colada Song) by Rupert Holmes.

After they were seen departing the bash hand in hand, she shared the gushing post the following morning as a message of thanks.

Her adoring profession came just weeks before it was claimed that 6ft 4in Lewis shouted ‘I was normal till I met her’ as she was arrested and charged with assault after an alleged fight the couple had at her home.

Police were called to the star’s home in Islington, north London, in the early hours of Thursday morning to reports of a man being assaulted.

Love Island star Caroline will appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates Court on December 23 charged with assault by beating.

Eyewitnesses have described ‘total chaos’ outside her home as police arrived to diffuse the situation between her and her boyfriend.

The former professional tennis player is said to have shouted at police as he was led away, while Flack was reportedly left in need of hospital treatment after accidentally cutting herself on broken glass during the incident.

According to an eyewitness who spoke to Daily Star, Lewis is said to have shouted at police as they escorted him to a waiting car: ‘Bruv, I was normal until I met her.’

While other neighbours described ‘police cars everywhere’ and shocking scenes despite the couple seeming like ‘they’ve been getting on well’.

Louise Silver, 36, told MailOnline: ‘It was total chaos. There were police cars everywhere. At first I thought it might have been a terrorist incident but then I looked out and saw police going into Flack’s home. They brought her out soon after.’

Anton Smith added: ‘There must have been around six police cars and a police van. We see Caroline and her boyfriend coming in and out of the house and around the area.

‘It must have been around 5am and it was total chaos. I was on my way to work and didn’t know what was going on. It was only when I got home that somebody in the block told me she’d been arrested.’

And speaking to The Sun, which learnt of Flack requiring hospital treatment, another neighbour said: ‘There were several police cars at Caroline's house. I know Caroline and this new man. She's very friendly and always speaks to us. I hope things sort themselves out.’

The TV presenter’s arrest has thrown ITV’s first ever winter version of Love Island into doubt, with filming due to start in South Africa on January 8.

And a source close to the show told The Sun the incident was an ‘absolute nightmare’ so near to the start of the new series. 

Flack was due to jet off on location with a brand new batch of contestants in the first week of January but it is not clear whether she will still be able to go. ITV have not yet commented on her arrest.

The man, believed to be her boyfriend Lewis Burton, 27, was taken to hospital to be treated for his injuries, reports the Daily Star

Flack’s good friend Dawn O'Porter, who she met in 2010 when filming I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here, threw her support behind the Love Island star following the arrest. 

She said on Twitter: ‘Woken up to some really hard news about my friend Caroline Flack. Who I love very very much. 

‘I will wait until I know the facts before I make a judgement, and I urge you to do the same. This cancel culture doesn't help anyone. You weren't there. You don't know. That's it.’
