Why Caroline Flack ditched boozing after nightmare split from Andrew Brady

Caroline Flack has revealed that she’s quit boozing in the wake of her nightmarish split from Andrew Brady.

The Love Island host, 39, has slimmed down from a size 12 to an 8 after losing another 13 stone in the form of her Celebrity Big Brother star ex.

She’s cut out alcohol and sugar from her diet and started hitting up the gym in a bid to heal her mental health.

"Before I started this, I didn’t realise how much sugar and fat I was eating. And I couldn’t really cook before, but I’ve had to learn. See? I’m all grown-up now," she told Women’s Health magazine.

But she’ll never stop enjoying her favourite Chinese takeaways, as Caroline says she wanted to get "strong, not skinny".

"The best thing about all of this is how I feel," she went on.

"I didn’t realise how much it would change my mindset. Before if I’d had a stressful day, I’d go to meet my friends in the pub and have a moan.

"Now I go to yoga. It really suits my head – I’m someone who talks fast, thinks fast, makes decisions fast. Now I’m trying to go slower and give myself time before I say yes."

It came after a rough year in which Caroline and Andrew got together, were engaged within weeks of dating and then split several times before finally calling things off for good.

She revealed last month how their toxic relationship descended into constant rows, including one in which he called an ambulance to be sent to her house.

"You know I like him. But I think we’re both doing what we need to do at the minute," said Caroline.

Yesterday, Mirror Online exclusively revealed that Caroline is pursuing a new romance with Strictly Come Dancing professional AJ Pritchard, who she was caught snogging at the National Television Awards this week.

The pair were spotted locking lips at the NTA after-party, with AJ touching Caroline’s bum as she flicked out her dress to show off her legs.

Despite their 15-year age gap, they clearly only had eyes for each other as they stood at the bar whispering into each other’s ears and touching each other’s arms.

And by 12.30am they were all over each other, holdings hands and seeking out the quietest corner to start snogging on a sofa hidden away from sight.

The pair then left around 1am and headed to the taxi rank.

Mirror Online contacted reps for both for comment.
