Love Island's Caroline Flack: "I'm not an expert on love just because I'm engaged"

Love Island‘s Caroline Flack says her engagement to Andrew Brady doesn’t make her an expert on love, but her “varied relationships” make her a very good listener to the Islanders.

The TV host announced her engagement to the former Apprentice and Celebrity Big Brother star back in April, after confirming their relationship by sharing some romantic pictures of each other on social media in March.

    “You’d maybe think I’d think I am an expert now but I am not!” Flack told Digital Spy and others ahead of the ITV2 show’s launch, which kicks off tonight (June 4).

    “I am just a normal girl in a relationship just like everyone else. No relationship is easier just because you’re in the public eye. It’s all the same feelings.

    I am definitely not an expert but what I like to think [is], because I have had a varied life of relationships, I can be a good listener to the guys and girls and just listen and ask good questions.”

      Flack also discussed what the show teaches us about love in 2018, and suggested that the series brings back “an old-fashioned style of dating”, because none of the Islanders have access to their phones or social media.

      “[The show] teaches us that [love] is simple but complicated,” the 38-year-old presenter suggested.

      “This is such a modern dating show and it’s a phenomenon in its own right that’s it’s got bigger and bigger, but actually with all the things that go on like Tinder, Love Island actually goes back to the traditional side of dating.

      “They haven’t got phones, they can’t poke each other on Facebook, they have to sit down and have the art of conversation, which people don’t do now.”

      Flack also insisted that producers are only “showing movement” and not “full-on sex” between the couples in the villa, and that sex is an inevitable part of a relationship.

      “It’s an old-fashioned style of dating that we’re bringing back,” she continued. “How do we know people wouldn’t have had sex on TV in the past? We didn’t give them the chance! We’re not showing full-on… we are showing movement. That happens in relationships, everyone has sex.

      “You don’t have to watch it but I do.”

      Love Island returns tonight (June 4) at 9pm on ITV2.
