Caroline Flack opens up about her split with Andrew Brady –

Love Island host Caroline Flack has opened up about her public persona and her break up with Celebrity Big Brother‘s Andrew Brady.

The star stated that she was reclaiming the ‘Queen of Cougars’ title she has been given, claiming that “I can stand by a lamppost and people would say I’m engaged to it. As long as it was built in the last 30 years.”

In a lengthy open letter on the The Mail on Sunday’s You magazine, Caroline wrote: I absolutely loved being engaged [to Andrew] but things didn’t pan out and that caused me pain; of course it did. I’m a person not a caricature. It was a sad time when I broke off my engagement and I was hurting.

“I coped the way I always do – I cried in private and did my grieving behind closed doors. Then I put on my make-up, painted a smile on my face and kept my head up high in public. I know that people wanted to see me having a breakdown but I refused to oblige. That doesn’t make me a fraud, just human.

“One thing I have learnt is to police my own boundaries and not to expose so much of myself on social media. I was so in love [with Andrew] and it all felt so blissful that I wanted the world to know.

I wore my heart on my sleeve; I overshared and posted loads of pictures on Instagram. That’s a lesson I won’t forget; I must always keep something back.”

The star, who was in an on-and-off relationship with Brady throughout 2018, wrapped up her post by saying: “I haven’t got any advice for my younger self because, looking back, I regret absolutely nothing.

“Actually, if I’m going to be completely honest here, I do have one regret… cutting a fringe.”
