OK, so 2018 is definitely Caroline Flack's best year ever. Fresh from announcing her engagement to Andrew Brady, the 38-year-old revealed something huge in her work life - she has collaborated with River Island. The Love Island host has worked alongside the brand's in-house design team to create the 19-piece capsule collection which launches in selected stores and online from 30 May, just in time for her to wear the pieces on the show’s live shows!
Caroline said: "With it being a summer collection it's obviously inspired by the sunshine and Love Island. It's bright, practical and perfect for the city or on holiday, Any friends that I've secretly shown the collection to have told me it's totally me, it's like I'm walking into my own wardrobe!"

Teasing the news on Instagram, Caroline wrote in shouty capital letters: "I HAVE MEGA NEWS. SO EXCITING." Fans commented in their hundreds, all thrilled about the news. Instagram user Kellierio commented: "Awesome! RI is my ultimate go to! And being a shorty (.51) like yourself I’m hoping it’s a petite range?", while another wrote: "omg I will be buying it all!"
We're obsessed with the cool slogan tee with the word 'Love Sick' on the front, a floral yellow dress and a Hawaiian shirt! We'll no doubt be throwing the whole collection into our suitcase this summer.
The £22 tee everyone will be lusting over, as well as the £85 pineapple-print suitcase
We'll all be wearing the Love Sick T-shirt!
Fans of Caroline's style will know that she loves a shorter hemline, a flirty dress, a playsuit and she isn’t afraid of colour. She also LOVES the high-street, and can often be seen stepping out in bargain ensembles. Even in her engagement announcement she wore a reasonably-priced T-shirt from ASOS!

For red carpet events, Caroline often opts for a designer dress, but will always add in something from the high street, whether it's a leather jacket, a pair of sandals or statement jewellery. Celebrity fashion stylist James Yardley is her go-to person for big events. Recognise the name? He’s the man responsible for Tess Daley's Strictly Come Dancing looks, as well as. Will this be the start of Caroline's big fashion career? Only time will tell...
