The pair took to Instagram with a loved up photo of them laughing in the sun while cosying up to each other.

The Love Island host shared another sweet photo of the pair just weeks before the incident took place, showing them enjoying their time in London’s Christmassy Winter Wonderland theme park.

Caroline is set to head out to South Africa’s Cape Town in January to host the new series of Love Island, the first ever winter version of the matchmaking series.

“The new Winter Love Island will launch the second week of January,” an insider told MailOnline.

“Bosses are still deciding on the final date but it is thought to be 8th January – a week after staff arrive in South Africa.”

“It has been decided that the show will run six weeks instead of the usual eight,” they added.

“The new cast of singletons fly out just days before the launch but bosses work with test Islanders to uncover the best spots in the villa to create drama.”
