MailOnline has contacted a spokesperson for Caroline Flack and ITV for comment.

Caroline and her tennis player and model boyfriend Lewis have been in a relationship since July.

Their relationship seemed to be on the rocks when they in a furious argument during their Spanish holiday in October. Caroline was pictured engaging in a tense discussion with Lewis as they sat on board a luxury vessel while out at sea with a group of their friends in Ibiza.

In August, a source told The Sun that Caroline and Lewis had ‘really hit it off’ after being ‘introduced through mutual friends.’

Lewis is currently signed to Select Model Management following his stint as a professional tennis player. The hunk began playing the sport at the tender age of seven, and reached a career high when he played the final of the boys' doubles with George Morgan at Wimbledon in 2010. Lewis played his last game in professional tennis with Marcus Willis at the Great Britain F2 in Sunderland back in January 2015.

Earlier this year, Caroline embarked on a short-lived romance with rugby player Danny Cipriani, 31, before their relationship fizzled out in May. She was previously engaged to Apprentice star Andrew Brady for just under a year back in 2018. She previously romanced stars such as former X Factor co-star Olly Murs, 35, musician Harry Styles, 25, and music manager Jack Street, 31. Last month, Caroline was forced to shut down rumours that she and Lewis were engaged to one another, with her rep saying it's '100% not true.'

While celebrating her 40th birthday that month, she addressed the milestone birthday in an Instagram Story, admitting she was ‘utterly grateful’ for everything.

She wrote: ‘Jesus… Last day of my 30s …. and what a ride it’s been so far,’ she wrote. ‘Feeling so utterly grateful for EVERYTHING in my life right now.'

The news comes just weeks after Caroline's ex Andrew Brady branded their relationship toxic. He went on Instagram to reveal he had covered a tattoo of her initials which he had on his wrist to mark a year since the pair's relationship ended. The former Apprentice star, 29, took to Instagram as he visited Bondi Ink to have the 'CF' covered with the shape of Australia.

Andrew was engaged to Caroline, 40, last year but since they split - which he said 'probably saved his life' - he has relocated to Sydney.
