The Love Island host was taken into custody by officers at her home in London, which she shares with tennis player Lewis Burton.

A spokesperson for the Met Police told The Independent that, while the man’s injuries were not “serious”, he was taken to hospital and treated by paramedics.

“Caroline Flack, 40, of Islington was charged on 13 December with assault by beating,” the spokesperson continued.
