It's been reported that Caroline Flack has left the UK for the relative anonymity of Los Angeles to lie low for a while following her court hearing after she was charged with assaulting boyfriend Lewis Burton.

It's been a stressful few weeks for the Love Island presenter, who stepped down from the upcoming sixth season of the ITV reality show, where she's been replaced by Laura Whitmore.

The proverbial source told The Sun: "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.

"So after spending the festive period with family and friends, she’s jetted to LA."
