Caroline Flack arrives at Heathrow to flee to LA to 'clear her head' after assault hearing

Caroline Flack arrived at Heathrow Airport on Sunday after booking a flight to Los Angeles to ‘escape from all the drama’. 

The presenter, 40, is said to be spending New Year’s in the US after a turbulent month saw her charged with assaulting her boyfriend Lewis Burton, 27, and step down as the host of Love Island. 

Caroline cut a low-profile and failed to raise a smile as she arrived at the departures terminal on her own, ready to flee Britain.

The presenter has reportedly flown to Los Angeles to ‘clear her head’ and spend some time away from the limelight.

And Caroline certainly cut a somber figure as she strolled into the airport lugging a large suitcase and weekend bag. 

The television personality covered her face in a £370 Burberry scarf and black tinted  aviators.

‘She's driving herself mad, as she likes to be busy … she's jetted to LA. 

‘Whenever she’s hit hard times, she’s always “found herself” again in the mountains, away from the limelight. She wants to feel the sunshine on her skin, do long hikes and clear her head.’ 

MailOnline contacted Caroline’s representatives for comment. 

Caroline appeared in court on Monday.

The Enfield native was accused of hitting Lewis over the head with a lamp while he was slept as well as smashing a glass after looking at texts which made her think he was cheating.  

Fleeing the country: After the hearing on Monday both Caroline and Lewis took to Instagram, with the TV personality telling her fans that she planned to take some time out

Cryptic: Caroline remained defiant about her case as she shared the meaningful message with her followers, despite admitting she still has 'some lessons' to learn

Withdrawal: The presenter has stepped down as host of the winter series of Love Island, with ITV bosses drafting in Laura Whitmore as her replacement

She and her partner Lewis were both allegedly covered in blood when police arrived at their flat in Islington, North London, on December 12, with Lewis saying in a 999 call that she ‘tried to kill me, mate’, Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court heard. 

One officer described the chaotic scene as ‘like a horror movie’.

Lewis was said to have been ‘almost begging the operator to send help’ with his face ‘covered in blood’, while Caroline allegedly had two cuts to her wrist.  

After being taken into custody, former X Factor host Caroline – whom the court heard was ‘manipulative’ towards Lewis and accused him of ruining her life – allegedly flipped over a table and had to be restrained on the ground by police.

Her boyfriend was allegedly left with ‘significant head injuries’, but the court heard she wanted to ‘spend time’ with him over the Christmas and New Year period.  

Caroline pleaded not guilty to common assault and was released on bail until her trial in March.

She put her head in her hands when the judge refused an application to remove bail conditions preventing her from contacting Lewis directly or indirectly and from attending his address.

Lewis, in the public gallery, also put his hand to his face, before the couple left the courtroom separately.  

After the hearing on Monday, both Caroline and Lewis took to Instagram, with the TV personality telling her fans she planned to take some time out.

Caroline remained defiant about her case as she shared the meaningful message with her followers, despite admitting she still has ‘some lessons’ to learn.   

Sharing an old image of herself on the red carpet, she wrote: ‘Been advised not to go on social media … but I wanted to say happy Christmas to everyone who has been so incredibly kind to me this year…..

‘This kind of scrutiny and speculation is a lot to take on for one person to take on their own… I’m a human being at the end of the day and I’m not going to be silenced when I have a story to tell and a life to keep going with ….

‘I’m taking some time out to get feeling better and learn some lessons from situations I’ve got myself into to. I have nothing but love to give and best wishes for everyone.’  

As well as no longer hosting the first winter season of Love Island, it is thought Caroline could be axed from presenting Channel 4’s The Surjury.

She announced she was set to host the controversial show back in October, which was expected to see young people convince a jury of peers and experts to approve of their life-changing operations.

But insiders claim the series won’t air as executives ‘do not want to associate’ with the media personality. 

While on Thursday, Caroline liked several cryptic tweets after being forced to spend Christmas apart from her beau Lewis as bail conditions mean she can’t contact him. 

She took to Twitter over the festive season to like several tweets including messages about being ‘on your own’ and ‘being on the road to emotional recovery’.

The ITV star showed support to Rose McGowan’s empowering tweet about ‘dark times’ and ‘getting the other side’.

It read: ‘Today I celebrate. I have love in my life, I’m on the road to emotional recovery, and I have mad love for all of you out there who keep me going in dark times. 

‘I wish you all peace and a big ray of hope. Here’s to getting the other side. Love, Rose.’

While Caroline also liked Lorraine presenter Dan Wootton’s tweet about being alone over Christmas, it said: ‘And if you are on your own this Christmas, just remember you are never alone.’

Her social media activity comes after her boyfriend Lewis said he’s ‘gutted’ they have had to spend Christmas apart on Wednesday.  

Taking to Instagram, the tennis player said he didn’t press charges after the incident at her Islington home in scenes later described by police as ‘a horror movie.’

Sharing a picture of Caroline holding two teddy bears, Lewis wrote: ‘Gutted I can’t spend Christmas with you.

‘I want to repeat I never pressed charges and asked the other day for the bail conditions to be dropped but no1 listened to me. I want this all to be over. [sic]’
