Caroline Flack re-follows boyfriend Lewis Burton on Instagram despite contact ban after assault charge

Love Island host Caroline Flack has re-followed her boyfriend Lewis Burton on Instagram, despite a judge banning the couple from having any direct or indirect contact in court.

The 40 year old, who pleaded not guilty to assault by beating at Highbury Corner Magistrates Court, broke down in tears when Judge Julia Newton refused to lift the contact ban.

The bail condition dictates Flack can not have direct or indirect contact with Lewis or go to his address ahead of her trial on 4 March 2020.

And, it’s since been spotted that the star has re-followed her boyfriend on Instagram – despite unfollowing him before her hearing on Monday 23 December.

Her former professional tennis player boyfriend has returned the favour by re-following the presenter, too.

Ms Weiss said: “At 5.25am on the 12 December he [Lewis Burton] made an allegation against his girlfriend Caroline Flack.

“Police then made their way to the address. Police then knocked on the door eight minutes later and it was opened by both of them. Both were covered in blood.

“And in fact one of the police officers likened the scene to a horror movie. He [Burton] said he had been asleep and had been hit over the head by Caroline by a lamp. It cut his head and his face was covered in blood.

“He said: ‘She is going mad, breaking stuff. I've just woken up. She's cracked my head open’.”
