Caroline Flack's boyfriend Lewis Burton says he 'gutted' they can't spend Christmas together

Caroline Flack’s boyfriend Lewis Burton has said he’s ‘gutted’ they have had to spend Christmas apart.

The Love Island host, 40, pleaded not guilty to assaulting her beau at Highbury Magistrate’s Court on Monday but bail conditions mean she can’t contact him. 

Taking to Instagram on Wednesday, Lewis said that he didn’t press charges after the incident at her Islington home in scenes later described by police as ‘a horror movie.’

'Gutted': Lewis Burton, 27, said he's devastated that he can't spend Christmas with his girlfriend Caroline Flack, 40, (pictured together at Winter Wonderland earlier in December)

Sharing a picture of Caroline – who has now stepped down from the hit ITV2 show- holding two teddy bears, Lewis wrote: ‘Gutted I can’t spend Christmas with you.

‘I want to repeat I never pressed charges and asked the other day for the bail conditions to be dropped but no1 listened to me. I want this all to be over. [sic]’ 

It comes after Caroline also made an Instagram post, insisting that she will ‘not be silenced’ on Christmas Eve.  

But Caroline remained defiant as she spoke to her followers the following evening, despite admitting she still has ‘some lessons’ to learn.

Sharing an old image of herself on the red carpet, she wrote: ‘Been advised not to go on social media … but I wanted to say happy Christmas to everyone who has been so incredibly kind to me this year…..  

‘This kind of scrutiny and speculation is a lot to take on for one person to take on their own… I'm a human being at the end of the day and I'm not going to be silenced when I have a story to tell and a life to keep going with ….

‘I'm taking some time out to get feeling better and learn some lessons from situations I've got myself into to.I have nothing but love to give and best wishes for everyone.’  

Sources close to the embattled presenter told MailOnline she is staying with friends in London over Christmas after being ordered by a judge not to contact boyfriend Lewis, who she denies clobbering with a lamp while he slept.

However her latest post comes shortly after the presenter reconnected with her boyfriend on Instagram, just days after unfollowing him prior to her court appearance. 

Despite being engulfed in a bruising court battle, Caroline will swallow her relationship heartbreak – and assault charge – to continue her tradition of volunteering. 

Flack’s 2010 ‘lamp’ tweet resurfaces

Caroline Flack’s tweet from 2010 hailing her new lamp has resurfaced in the wake of her assault charge.

The Love Island host is accused of smacking boyfriend Lewis Burton with a lamp while her slept on December 12.

And it transpired that nine years ago the 40-year-old presenter tweeted about a lamp.

She tweeted: ‘I also love my new lamp’.

After Flack appeared at court yesterday, social media users leaped on the tweet.

One said: ‘That didn’t age very well’ 

She will spend Christmas Day helping at Golden Years, a Hackney-based charity which is throwing a lunch for socially isolated elderly people. 

Finding volunteering ‘rewarding’, Caroline regularly gives up her time on December 25 and last year posted a picture of herself helping at a church in Stoke Newington. 

Caroline and her partner were both allegedly covered in blood when police arrived at their flat in Islington, North London, on December 12 – with one officer describing the chaotic scene as ‘like a horror movie’. ‘.

On Monday she pleaded not guilty to common assault and was released on bail until her trial in March. 

The presenter was accused of ‘going mad’ and smashing a glass after looking at texts which made her think Lewis was cheating – with him saying in a 999 call that she ‘tried to kill me, mate’, Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court heard.

Lewis was said to have been ‘almost begging the operator to send help’ with his face ‘covered in blood’, while Caroline – who has now been replaced as Love Island host by Laura Whitmore – allegedly had two cuts to her wrist.  

After being taken into custody, ITV 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’, but the court heard that she wants to ‘spend time’ with him over the Christmas and New Year period.

Lewis posted a picture of himself kissing Caroline, hours after a judge said she was banned from contacting Mr Burton and from attending his address – which left both with their head in their hands. 

He wrote on Instagram: ‘It’s heartbreaking I can’t see my girlfriend over Christmas. What I witnessed today was horrible. 

‘She did not hit me with a lamp. Arguments do happen every day in every relationship. Gutted I am not allowed to protect her right now.’

She broke down in tears as she sat in the dock. Holding her hand in front of her eyes, she sniffed. 

The judge gave Caroline’s legal team until January 20 next year to provide further evidence to the court. 

She put her head in her hands as the judge refused an application to remove bail conditions preventing her from contacting Lewis directly or indirectly and from attending his address.

Lewis, in the public gallery, also put his hand to his face, before the couple left the courtroom separately.

Caroline was later seen grabbing coffee with friends in east London on Tuesday afternoon – a stark contrast to her tearful court appearance. 

Despite a fraught few days, which have seen the TV star step down from her gig hosting Love Island this January and be replaced by close friend Laura Whitmore, Caroline managed to raise a smile.

The star looked casual figure in blue cut-off jeans and a matching black shirt and overcoat, and completed her casual look with classic red and white trainers.

In contrast to her emotional court appearance the previous day, Caroline didn’t appear to have a care in the world as she sipped on a Costa coffee.   

She has been released on bail until her trial on March 4 next year.
