They added: “He texted him saying if he wanted to chat then he’d be open to talking as he ‘knows what it’s like’.”

However, Lewis reportedly responded and told him to “stay out of his business”.

The model did, however, break his silence on his Instagram Stories.

He said: “I’m tired of the lies and abuse aimed at my girlfriend. This is not a witch hunt, this is someone’s life.”

He added: “I have not signed any NDA. Why would I? Caroline is the most lovely girl. Loyal and kind. She doesn’t deserve any of this.”

Fans of Love Island are now convinced that Maura Higgins, who found fame on the last series of the show, could replace Caroline as host.
