Caroline Flack is glad that Love Island bosses chose Laura Whitmore to replace her for the next series.

Caroline Flack stood down from her role as Love Island presenter earlier this week due to the backlash that followed her arrest and assault charge.

On Friday morning, Laura Whitmore confirmed the public’s expectations that she would be announced as Flack’s replacement.

In a lengthy Instagram post, Whitmore revealed that she will present the upcoming winter series of Love Island, as well as Aftersun.

Flack has now responded to the news and issued a gracious statement on her Instagram stories.

“I’m glad it’s Laura,” Flack wrote. “She loves the show as much as I do.

“Again, thank you for you continuous messages of support. It’s a really rough time, but I’m doing all I can to keep my head above water and sort this all out.”

The next series of Love Island begins on Sunday, January 12 and will take place in the new location of Cape Town, South Africa.

Interestingly, applications for the series are still open although the cast members who will begin the series have likely already been decided by ITV producers.
