Before finding fame on our TV screens, Caroline Flack was born in Thetford to mum Christine and dad Ian in 1979.

She has a twin sister called Jody. Caroline also has siblings Paul and Elizabeth.

The aspiring star grew up in Norfolk and hoped for a career in musical theatre. She left home at 16 to undertake a course at a performing arts college in Cambridge.

Caroline did a range of jobs to pay her way during her studies. This included being a magician’s assistant and working in a pork processing factory.

In 2002 Caroline got her big break with a role in comedy show Bo’ Selecta! before going into presenting.

She hosted various children’s television programmes and then moved into reality TV with an appearance on Big Brother’s Little Brother in 2008.

In the same year Caroline Flack started hosting I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here NOW! which she fronted for two years.

The pretty star’s career soon went from strength to strength. She co-hosted quiz show The Whole 10 Yards with Vernon Kay in 2010 and then took over The Xtra Factor with singer Olly Murs in 2011.

Caroline hit the headlines when she started dating One Direction star Harry Styles, who is 14 years her junior. They split three months later.

The presenter went public with music manager Jack Street in the summer of 2013.

Caroline Flack is known for her great sense of style and loves wearing shorts that show off her enviable legs.

After three years hosting The Xtra Factor, Caroline announced in June 2014 that she wouldn’t be returning to the show and was replaced by Sarah-Jane Crawford.

She revealed later in the summer that she’d be taking part in the latest series of Strictly Come Dancing and was partnered with Russian pro dancer Pasha Kovalev. The duo went on to win the series.

Caroline presented the revival of Love Island in June 2015 and then replaced Dermot O’Leary as host of The X Factor alongside her former Xtra Factor co-star Olly Murs.

She’s now presented every series of Love Island since 2015 and is back in the hosting hot seat for the 2019 series.
