Christine Lampard plays matchmaker for Caroline Flack following her split

Can she convince Caroline?

Christine Lampard has offered to set up Love Island's Dr Alex George with the show's host Caroline Flack.

Alex previously confessed that Caroline, 38, was his "ideal woman" but at the time Caroline was engaged to Andrew Brady, whom she split from last month.

During Thursday's Lorraine, Alex told host Christine that although Caroline is single again, he's just "too scared" to ask her on a date.

Christine told Alex: "It's becoming more obvious that there was one girl you had eyes for [in the villa], Caroline.

"Let's not waste any more time with this Alex, you've described her as your ideal woman. It doesn't get any better than that. So, what's going to happen here?"

Alex replied: "Caroline's brilliant and she's absolutely lovely. I can't see a future for us together. Sadly I don't think she'll recouple with me, but one can always dream."

When asked if he has asked Caroline out on a date, Alex admitted: "I'd be too shy, I'm too scared."

Christine quipped: "I'm not! I'll ask her. I’ll text her afterwards, ‘Caroline…’."

Alex laughed, as he added: “She’s brilliant, she’s a great host of the show. We had a lot of fun, banter throughout it. She’s brilliant."

Sadly I don’t think she’ll recouple with me, but one can always dream.

It comes after A&E doctor Alex admitted Caroline was his type back in June on the show.

He made his confession during a chat with fellow contestant Josh Denzel.

When asked who his ideal woman was, Alex said: "Physically, a girl a bit like Caroline Flack."

Caroline later responded to Alex's comment during Love Island: Aftersun, joking at the time that it was "too late" as she was then set to marry former Apprentice star Andrew.

Caroline split from Andrew last month and released a statement which said: "I’m sad to announce that Andrew and I have decided to part ways. Unfortunately it was not to be. I wish him all the best."

She then made a reference to her job as Love Island host, saying: "At least there’s a villa waiting for me. It’s back to the ol’ grafting."

However, at the weekend, the presenter was spotted cuddling up to Andrew in Ibiza fuelling rumours they have got back together.
