Caroline Flack cried in the dock today as a court heard she allegedly hit her lover’s head with a lamp.
The host of Love island pleaded not guilty to assault at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court following a 5am bust-up with her boyfriend Lewis Burton at their flat.
Caroline, though 40, sobbed in the dock as prosecutor Kate Weiss spoke about an ‘injury’ to Lewis Burton’s head.
The court also heard that police officers who attended to Flack’s north London home compared the scene to a ‘horror movie’ as both parties answered the front door was covered in blood.
Ms Weiss told the court: “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.
