We all know the trap of believing social media over reality, and a scroll through Caroline Flack’s Instagram feed might have you believing the 39 year old is constantly on holiday with a beaming smile.

But pictures that emerged last week of the TV presenter in Ibiza with her boyfriend Lewis Burton seem to tell a different story.

Multiple images of the couple on holiday appear to show them in a heated argument, with some shots showing Caroline looking tearful.

The romance which caused a storm. When Caroline was 31 she briefly dated One Direction star Harry Styles, who was 17 at the time. Due to the 14-year age gap, Caroline has previously opened up about the romance, admitting things turned 'sour' when they went public, due to the abuse she would receive from Harry's fans. She told NME, "It began to go wrong when he was pictured coming out of my house one morning. And that was that. In the street people started shouting 'paedophile' at me in the street and 'pervert'.

The couple have only been officially dating since August, but things already seem to be looking rocky for them after they were seen having the tense exchange while on board a yacht in Ibiza.

At one point, Lewis, 27, was seen reaching out to stroke his girlfriend’s leg as she turned her head away from him with her arms firmly folded. Caroline was later pictured holding up her phone to Lewis, and appeared to be showing him something on her screen.

The couple had seemed to be having the time of their lives on their Spanish vacay, partying with friends on a luxury yacht and drinking cocktails in the sunshine.

One night, Caroline joined Lewis and his friends at beach restaurant Blue Marlin, and the group later went on to dance the night away in a packed nightclub. Ex-Made In Chelsea star Ashley James also joined the group of friends on the yacht, but appeared to stay out of the way during the couple’s argument.

Previous to their bust-up, Caroline and Lewis had been snap happy with Instagram story posts, seemingly keen to share their relationship with their fans over the course of the trip.

The Love Island host drew three hearts over one picture of her snuggling up to her model boyfriend.

Caroline also recently seemed to hint that she had been thinking about settling down and having children, admitting, “I’ve kind of always put work first. Wake-up in the morning, go to work, come home – just like my boyfriend has. I’m scared it’s going to get too late, where I’ve wanted to go, ‘Right, maybe slow down, think about having kids and maybe think about settling down,’ but I’ve never had that.”

However, former tennis player Lewis may not be Caroline’s perfect Prince Charming, as these latest images are not the first warning signs that have emerged.

After their relationship was first revealed, Lewis’ ex-girlfriend, singer/songwriter Lauren Rose, spoke out, claiming, “He’s just playing us both. I know it’s a rebound, but that will show in time. He’s been wanting me back, asking to take me out. He’s still in love with me."
