Caroline Flack was arrested last Thursday and charged.
The 40-year-old said in a statement on Instagram that the ITV reality series has “been my world for the last five years” and hailed it as “the best show on telly”.But she added: “In order not to detract attention from the upcoming series I feel the best thing I can do is to stand down for series 6.”
This comes after Flack was arrested and charged with assault by beating her reportedly involving her boyfriend Lewis Burton after “a private domestic incident.”
Flack said in her post on Instagram that there had been a “significant number of media reports and allegations in regards to my personal life”.
“While matters were not as have been reported, I am committed to co-operating with the appropriate authorities and I can’t comment further on these matters until the legal process is over.”She added.
Flack also said she had “never experienced such kindness and love in my life,” adding: “Not only from friends and family who are always the greatest, but also from total strangers who send me messages of help and understanding … please know that I see them.”And my boyfriend Lewis..I love you.”
ITV said after Flack’s announcement, it had a “long standing relationship with Caroline and we understand and accept her decision”.
Following reports of a man being assaulted Flack was arrested in Islington, north London, after an incident about 5.25am on Thursday.
Police didn’t name the man but said he didn’t get seriously injured.
Her boyfriend later spoke out in Flack’s defense, saying that had become the subject of a “witch hunt” after her arrest.
The 27-year-old model and tennis player said in a statement on Instagram: “Caroline is the most lovely girl. Loyal and kind. She doesn’t deserve any of this.”
Flack, who previously presented The Xtra Factor and won the 2014 Strictly Come Dancing, will appear on 23 December at the Court of Highbury Corner Magistrates.
