Caroline Flack ‘takes her £1.1m flat off the market to rent it as a source of income’

Caroline Flack has reportedly taken her £1.1 million London flat off the market so she can rent it out as a source of income.

The presenter, 41, recently returned to the UK from a break in Los Angeles, and is reportedly keeping the flat as she plots her TV comeback ahead of her assault trial in March.

It comes after Caroline lost her £1.2 million salary as the host of Love Island by stepping down following her arrest last month.

A source told The Sun: ‘It’s been on the market for a while – but she’s taken it off and will now rent it out as it makes more business sense.’

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Caroline Flack for comment.

It comes after Caroline put her flat on the market in September, though it only came to light last month that it was for sale following her arrest for assault. 

Police were seen outside Flack’s two-bedroom home in December, where she lived with her partner Lewis at the time, after reports emerged that a man had been attacked.

The key features of the property, listed on the website, described it as period conversion with double height ceilings and original windows.

It also boasts a utility area, as well as an open plan kitchen and living area. 

Caroline is also clearly a fan of pink which adorns various parts of the cosy flat. A green rug by DVF that costs more than £5k also adorns the flat. 

There is also a pink and red picture on the wall in living room, which is poster of The Virgin Suicides by Sofia Coppola.

Caroline was pictured on Saturday after returning from a month-long break in LA, with sources claiming she’d jetted to LA to clear her head ahead of her trial in March. 

The star also made her return to social media on Tuesday after a lengthy absence, having been warned to stay off social media until the trial.

In her post Caroline wished the Love Island team luck as it was nominated for the National Television Award for Challenge Show.

She penned: ‘Good luck to all the team and cast at tonight’s NTAs…it’s such a fun night… cmon @loveisland.’  

Caroline appeared in court on December 23, charged with assaulting her boyfriend Lewis, 27. 

It was also reported on Saturday that that Love Island host is in a much better place and has given up alcohol in preparation for her TV comeback.

The insider told The Sun: ‘Caroline has not touched alcohol since before Christmas and has been getting to the gym every day.’ 

The publication also claimed Love Island bosses would like to have Caroline back as host for the next series in the summer, if she is cleared of assaulting Lewis following her trial, which is scheduled to being in March.

The source added: ‘Caroline has been told Love Island want her back for the next series. Laura has done a great job so far but the show’s bosses don’t feel she has the same pull.’

This year’s Love Island has seen a dip in ratings, with 800,000 less viewers tuning into the launch episode, which was hosted by Irish star Laura Whitmore, who ITV announced last month would be standing in for Caroline.

It was also reported Caroline is planning to move back in with her boyfriend Lewis once the trial comes to an end.

Caroline appeared in court over the incident with her boyfriend in December – where a judge heard she hit the former tennis player over the head with a lamp.

The court was told she read texts on Lewis’ phone that made her think he was cheating on her before the alleged attack. 

She and her partner Lewis were both allegedly covered in blood when police arrived at their flat in Islington, North London, on December 12, with Lewis saying in a 999 call that she ‘tried to kill me, mate’, Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court heard.

One officer described the chaotic scene as ‘like a horror movie’.

Lewis was said to have been ‘almost begging the operator to send help’ with his face ‘covered in blood’, while Caroline allegedly had two cuts to her wrist.  

After being taken into custody, former X Factor host Caroline – whom the court heard was ‘manipulative’ towards Lewis and accused him of ruining her life – allegedly flipped over a table and had to be restrained on the ground by police. 

Her boyfriend was allegedly left with ‘significant head injuries’.

Caroline pleaded not guilty to common assault and the court heard she wanted to ‘spend time’ with him over the Christmas and New Year period, but she was banned from communicating with him until her trial. 

Following her arrest last month, Caroline announced that she would be stepping down as Love Island’s host, meaning she would lose her £1.2 million salary.

A source told MailOnline the TV personality had also been lining up a ‘six-figure advertising deal with Polaroid’ which is now ‘on hold’ after her arrest.

On the last series of Love Island, Polaroid collaborated with the show and a range of sunglasses was designed for the contestants which were then available to buy on the Love Island website.

MailOnline contacted a spokesperson for the brand and Caroline Flack for comment at the time.
