After appearing in court on 23rd December for a charge of “assault by beating”, barely a week passed before Caroline Flack was pictured at the airport on her way to Los Angeles.

Police were called to the TV presenter’s home on 12 December where Caroline was arrested after it was alleged that she had caused a “significant” head injury to boyfriend Lewis Burton.

With her trial due to start on 4th March, Caroline and Lewis have been told to stay away from each other, but a source tells heat Caroline is still determined to stick with Lewis.

“Caroline has been absolute mess in the aftermath of all this drama, but she is determined to get through it all with Lewis still standing by her side. As far as Caroline is concerned, she’s got a point to prove that she’s innocent and she wants to fast-track her marriage plans to Lewis as soon as the trial in March is over.

"She has a redemption plan to rebuild her career, and she believes that marrying Lewis and having a child as soon as possible is her key to getting her life back on track – despite there being massive red flags, like her suspicions that he had been cheating on her.”

Lewis himself spoke out after his girlfriend’s court appearance, posting on Instagram, “Gutted I can’t spend Christmas with [Caroline], I want to repeat I never pressed charges and asked the other day for the bail conditions to be dropped but no one listened to me. I want this all to be over.”

Our source tells us Caroline was determined to leave the country as soon as possible because she couldn’t stand being kept apart from her 27-year-old boyfriend.

“She jetted off to LA because she couldn’t stand being in the UK a moment longer with Lewis there and not being able to see or speak to him,” we’re told.

“At least this way, with an ocean between them, she can justify them not seeing each other. Her pals and close family have been trying to hold her back a little, get her to just take time out to reflect and not be so manic. But obviously being away from Lewis and not being able to talk to him is driving her up the wall.

"She is constantly worrying about him and wondering what he is getting up to. The only thing that takes her mind off it is concentrating on their future and projecting happy thoughts and goals like getting married and starting a family together.”
