Caroline Flack is said to be terrified about her future in TV after she was arrested for allegedly assaulting her boyfriend Lewis Burton.

The 40-year-old was accused of attacking Lewis at her home in Islington, London.

He was reportedly taken to hospital after the rumoured argument, but his injuries were not serious. Caroline also reportedly went to hospital after allegedly accidentally cutting her hand on broken glass during the row.

A friend exclaimed: ‘Caroline’s terrified she’ll never work in TV again.’

‘The timing couldn’t be worse,’ said a telly continued. ‘Caroline was due to fly New Year’s Day, with the show starting a week later, but now it’s been thrown into chaos.

‘No one knows what will happen so bosses are drawing up contingency plans,’ they told the Daily Mirror.

The source also revealed that there have been emergency meetings and talks of replacement presenters.

And while ITV is yet to comment on the subject, the bookies are already at it with their predictions of who could replace the host on Love Island (if it came to it).

Paddy Power makes Maya Jama the 6/4 favourite to head to South Africa to cover for Caroline.

She would be a popular choice with fans after receiving rave reviews when appearing on spin-off show Aftersun last year.

Also in the running is former Islander Maura Higgins at 3/1, Amber Rose Gill (7/1), while experienced presenter Laura Whitmore is rated 5/1 alongside Emily Atack at 6/1.

Gemma Collins, who has her own show on ITV, is rated 10/1, while the most likely male presenter is seen as Ant McPartlin (20/1) – who has a bit of downtime now after returning from the I’m A Celeb jungle.

While Holly Willoughby is the same price (20/1) after she excelled as a substitute for Ant in the jungle last year –picking up a Bafta in the process.

The bookies make it odds-on 4/6 that Flack doesn’t appear in this series but returns for next summer’s edition.

Spokesman Paddy Power said: ‘With Caroline Flack in a spot of bother, it seems likely that ITV will take her out of the spotlight for the upcoming winter series of Love Island.

‘Maya Jama is our favourite to get the role – she fronted MTV’s True Love or True Lies dating show – and was a very popular Aftersun guest. Plus, her own single status is much-discussed at the moment after Stormzy’s apology song release.

‘Maura Higgins is the second favourite and would be sure to give the nation flutters if she got the job. She’s also more than qualified to talk about a successful Love Island coupling.’

Fans are also coming up with their own suggestions – and they have taken to social media to share their views.

Among the suggestions were Ant and Dec, Rylan Clark-Neal and even Iain Stirling’s partner Laura Whitmore.
