Caroline Flack hosted The X Factor & Love Island
Flack was a host on both The X Factor (2015) and Love Island (2015-2019). Flack only lasted a year on The X Factor but lasted many years on hit UK show, Love Island. However, the host stepped down last year. In an Instagram post, she wrote:
“There have been a significant number of media reports and allegations in regards to my personal life. While matters were not as have been reported, I am committed to co-operating with the appropriate authorities and I can’t comment further on these matters until the legal process is over. In order to not detract attention from the upcoming series I feel the best thing I can do is stand down for Series 6.”Caroline Flack statement
