Caroline Flack came face-to-face with dumped islander Francesca Allen during Sunday night’s Love Island: Aftersun, weeks after a shock report claimed she once branded the host a “dirty paedo” to her face.
According to The Sun, the Essex beauty hit out at Love Island’s very own presenter back in 2012 when she was dating Harry Styles, who was 17 at the time.
In a tweet obtained by the publication, her friend Paigey Banks wrote: “Highligh of the dayyy seeing Caroline Flack and calling herrr a dirtyy pedo withhhh @francesca_allen hahaha.”
Following the revelation, Francesca finally met with Caroline on the Aftersun sofa – and there was an awkward exchange towards the end of the interview.
As the chat came to a close, Caroline exclaimed to the audience: “Francesca everybody.”
Francesca stood up to give her a hug, but Caroline quickly ran past her to chat to the celebrity panel.
Eagle-eyed fans couldn’t help but comment on what happened, with one writing: “Francesca and Caroline on Aftersun was funny to watch especially when Francesca stood up for what I’m guessing was a hug and then awkwardly sat back down when she didn’t get one- guessing Caroline didn’t forget the comment.”
“Sooo awkward. Francesca got up like she was going to hug Caroline and Caroline skipped right past her. So odd,” a second wrote, while a third added: “Im screaming at Caroline pieing Francesca’s hug. Pahahaha #loveislandaftersun.”
At the time, a representative for Francesca told OK! online regarding the post: “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.”
Love Island continues at 9pm on ITV.
