Lewis Burton Caroline Flack Incident
Flack, 40, and her partner Lewis Burton 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’.
The ITV host was accused of ‘going mad’ and smashing a glass at 5am – with former tennis player Mr Burton saying in a 999 call that she ‘tried to kill me, mate’ and called him an ‘a***hole’, Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court heard.
Mr Burton was said to have been ‘almost begging the operator to send help’ with his face ‘covered in blood’, while Flack – who has now been replaced as Love Island host by Laura Whitmore – allegedly had two cuts to her wrist.
After being taken into custody, Flack – whom the court heard was ‘manipulative’ towards Mr Burton and accused him of ruining her life – allegedly flipped over a table and had to be restrained on the ground by police.
Flack has now been released on bail until her trial on March 4 next year. She allegedly said ‘I did it’ and claimed under caution that she would kill herself – also admitting she ‘whacked him round the head’, the court was told.
Her boyfriend was allegedly left with ‘significant head injuries’ and claimed in the 999 call that Flack had ‘cracked my head open’, but the court heard Flack wants to ‘spend time’ with him over the Christmas and New Year period.
Lewis Burton career
Burton started playing tennis at the age of seven and reached a career-high ranking of 172 (singles and doubles combined) on the Juniors circuit, achieved in July 2010. Along with George Morgan, he reached the final of the boys’ doubles at Wimbledon in 2010. However, they lost the final 6–7(4), 4–6 to the fellow British pairing of Liam Broady and Tom Farquharson. The following year, Morgan won the boys’ doubles title with Mate Pavić, with Burton being too old to compete. In 2012, Burton and Morgan, now both too old for the boys’ tournament, were given a wildcard into qualifying for the men’s doubles at Wimbledon. They qualified for the main draw, where they lost to Steve Darcis and Olivier Rochus in the first round, by a scoreline
