Lewis Burton has insisted the blood on ‘Caroline Flack’s stained sheets’ isn’t his after a photo emerged showing her bed after her assault arrest.
Caroline’s boyfriend, 27, took to Instagram after a photo, which is allegedly the 40-year-old Love Island host’s bloodied bed, was obtained and published by The Sun.
Lewis has jumped to Caroline’s defence following the reports and claimed that it isn’t his blood covering the sheets and he wasn’t hit over the head by a lamp.

Alongside the photograph, he wrote: ‘B******t this isn’t my blood and I didn’t get hit over the head with a lamp. Can everyone stop now.’
The former tennis pro went on to profess his love for Caroline, who he is currently unable to see due to court restrictions ahead of her impending trial in March.
Posting a picture of the pair together in happier times, Lewis wrote: ‘I love this girl more than anything no one knows what’s going on or what’s happened.’
‘She’s f***ing harmless and the most amazing person I have ever met.’

Troubled: Caroline will be ringing in 2020 in the US after a turbulent month, which saw her being charged with assaulting Lewis and subsequently having to step down from her £1.2 million-a-year Love Island hosting gig
Caroline will be ringing in 2020 in the US after a turbulent month, which saw her being charged with assaulting Lewis and subsequently having to step down from her £1.2 million-a-year Love Island hosting gig.
The winter series of Love Island will begin on January 12 – with Laura Whitmore, 34, the girlfriend of show narrator Iain Stirling, 31, set to host for the first time.
Caroline was forced to stand down from her presenting duties after being arrested and charged for assaulting her boyfriend Lewis earlier this month.

The former show host was pictured arriving at London’s Heathrow Airport on Sunday after booking a flight to Los Angeles in a bid to ‘escape all the drama.’
It is thought Caroline will take time for herself and go on long hikes while she is away from her home in London, reports the Sun.
A source said: ‘Caroline feels trapped in the UK. She can’t see or communicate with Lewis but she also doesn’t want to return to her flat because her every move is documented by photographers.
‘She’s driving herself mad, as she likes to be busy … she’s jetted to LA. Whenever she’s hit hard times, she’s always “found herself” again in the mountains, away from the limelight.

‘She wants to feel the sunshine on her skin, do long hikes and clear her head.’
MailOnline contacted Caroline’s representatives for comment at the time.
The TV personality has been accused of hitting Lewis over the head with a lamp while he was asleep after reading texts on his phone that led her to believe he was cheating.
Police said the pair were covered in blood after a ‘horror movie attack’ when they arrived at Caroline’s flat in north London on December 12 – with Lewis saying in a 999 call ‘she tried to kill me’, Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court heard last week.

Caroline has denied assault and remains in a relationship with model and tennis coach Lewis. She has been released on bail until her trial on March 4 and is not allowed any contact with her boyfriend until then.
The former Love Island host has given her blessing to her pal Laura after she was confirmed as stand-in presenter for the South African-based series.
She wrote on Instagram: ‘I’m glad it’s Laura. She loves the show as much as I do… Again… Thank you so much for your continuous messages of support…
‘It’s a really tough time… But I’m doing all I can to keep my head above water and sort this all out.’
