Caroline Flack: 'I've Settled Down With BF Jack'
Harry Styles' old flame reveals she's happily co-habiting with her current fella...
Caroline Flack has opened up about her private life in a new interview with Cosmopolitan.
And The Xtra Factor presenter, who famously dated One Direction studmuffin Harry Styles, that she's now loved-up and living with her music manager BF Jack Street.
She said: "Jack has moved into my house. It's so important to have a private life. You need to have something to go home to that's separate.
"I always say to Jack, 'We're lovers, not best friends'. You have to make an effort; go on dates. Fancying each other is so important in a relationship.
"We don’t talk about intimate problems or periods. You've got to keep the mystery."
And the 34-year-old TV personality also said she'd overcome her body image issues.
"I never weigh myself. I ditched the scales because you become obsessed. It takes over your mind. Sometimes you have to just think 'screw it!' I’d hate to not enjoy food. Sometimes food is better than sex… sometimes."
She also admitted that she had felt negative pressure over her appearance from social media.
"Then you get into the world of media and you just feel the pressure massively. Especially with Twitter. I used to be really comfortable with my body, until I started hearing from people I didn't even know who have no relevance to me saying, 'You're ugly, you're fat, you're old'.
"And I thought, 'Hold on, I was doing alright until you piped up'."
She was also critical of the tendency among some of the media to criticise women for their fashion choices and appearance.
"There’s all these pictures of women taken from unflattering angles with negative comments like, 'Oh, that outfit didn't look right' and 'She's put on weight'.
"I just think, 'You absolute a**eholes for pointing that out! Why have you done that?' There are millions of women all over the world who are self-conscious about the way they look, and you've decided to pick on one girl.
"We should compliment other women; if you can't think of anything nice, don't say anything.
"Thankfully I was brought up in a way where being kind and nice, and having fun, were more important than looks."
The full interview appears in the June 2014 issue of Cosmopolitan, on sale 1 May and also available in digital edition on Apple Newsstand.
