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."

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'."

Her tweet reportedly came after Caroline dated One Direction star Harry Styles who at the time was 14-year her senior.

Following the news a rep for the reality star released a statement and made it clear that the alleged comment isn't true, it read: "This was a historic tweet that has not come from Francesca directly.

"Francesca can’t reply as she is in the villa but she would be mortified if she was judged based on the actions of a 16 year old friend. She has a lot of respect for Caroline and is looking forward to meeting her."

However in last night's Love Island Aftersun it appeared that Caroline snubbed Francesca following her exit from the villa.

Before Cazza interviewed Francesca she gave her a hug and said she looked "gorgeous" however viewers claimed the TV presenter was frosty towards the reality star during their chat.

Things took an awkward turn at the end the interview when Francesca appeared to stand up and give Caroline a hug but the host walked off over to the other side of the set.

Lots of viewers picked up on the awkwardness, with one person writing: "Caroline is so annoying tbh. So unprofessional. Didn’t hug Francesca and left her standing & completely biased on her questioning depending on her own preference #LoveIsland #aftersun".

Another commented: "Did I just see Francesca expecting a hug from Caroline that she just brushed her off wtaf?! #loveisland".

Someone else said: "Ahh that was awkward with Francesca 😂 #aftersun".
