We already know that she’s a hopeless romantic, and that she’s not afraid of a speedy engagement, so it should come as no surprise that Caroline Flack is already planning a "shotgun wedding" with new boyfriend Lewis Burton.

A source told heat magazine, "Caroline has a marriage and babies game plan. She’s even joked that they might have to have a shotgun wedding, because she wants to get pregnant ASAP."

Prince Harry

Er, what??Caz and His Royal Highness Prince Harry were first linked in 2009 when they were introduced by a mutual friend. Writing in her autobiography, Storm in a C Cup, she wrote, "To meet a prince is so unlikely, it would be weird not to acknowledge it. However, once the story got out, that was it. We had to stop seeing each other. I was no longer Caroline Flack, TV presenter, I was Caroline Flack, Prince Harry's bit of rough."

Rumours started swirling about Caroline and her Xtra Factor co-host Olly Murs as soon as they started working together, with viewers quickly picking up on their undeniable chemistry. Speaking to heat magazine a few years later, she admitted that it was "a little bit flirty" in the beginning."I used to watch you on I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here Now!, and thought you seemed like a top person," added Oli. ""Someone really lovely, who I could go out for a drink and have a laugh with.It's almost like when you think of girlfriends – you're the perfect girlfriend."

Harry Styles

Who could forget this shock romance?Harry and Caz first hooked up a year after he came second on X Factor with band One Direction, but because of the age gap, they wanted to keep their relationship a secret.Caroline wrote, "I already knew that he had a crush on me, he's made it pretty obvious as he's said it in magazines and said it to friends. I've never felt I was much older than Harry. I still feel 18 and I probably act that way half the time. Although it was just a bit of fun we decided it was best to keep it to ourselves as we were both working for Simon Cowell."It began to go wrong when he was pictured coming out of my house one morning," she continued. "And that was that. In the street people started shouting 'paedophile' at me in the street and 'pervert'."

Bradley Simmonds

There was some extra Love dramz on this year's Love Island as Caz was linked to Molly-Mae's ex, PT Bradley Simmonds. But she insisted she didn't want to complicate their friendship with romance, telling Cosmopolitan, "I wouldn't want to ruin it because he's the best thing. He's the only constant in my life right now."

The 39 year old recently admitted she felt "guilty" and "selfish" for putting her career first rather than "[thinking] about having kids and settling down". And now an insider has told the publication that she’s finally ready for her "dream of marriage and a baby".

"She’s ignored all the red flags in the relationship, like Lewis' ex claiming he was 'playing' Caroline, because she’s so focused on them taking things to the next level.

"They’ve got extremely close in a very short period of time. This has caused disaster for Caroline in the past, but she doesn’t seem to see that she’s following the same pattern.

"Rather than take things slow, she’s moving at 100 miles a minute. They’re already talking about how many kids they want and what kind of wedding they would have.

"Caroline isn’t shy, and that’s what Lewis likes about her. She can be very confident and self-assured, and she just doesn’t want to waste any time."

Caroline and model Lewis began dating this summer, going Instagram official at the start of August, and her friends are worried she’s rushing into things.

"Some of her friends are worried she’s not looking at the bigger picture. They have insane chemistry together and that is enough for Caroline to believe that he’s ‘The One’ and someone she wants to spend the rest of her life with, or at least try to."

The TV presenter recently admitted finding falling in love "quite addictive", but added, "I’ve never been good at keeping it going."

An insider went on to say, "Caroline feels lucky that she’s met someone with such an intense connection and feels as though she’s been given another chance at happiness.

"People are glad she’s happy – but they just can’t help worrying whether Lewis might be in the relationship for different reasons, and she needs to take some time out before she gets this carried away with someone."
