Caroline Flack has cleared up the rumours that she has secretly got engaged by admitting that she will "probably never get married".

The Xtra Factor host shared a picture of her wearing a diamond ring on her wedding finger last month, which sent Twitter into a frenzy with speculation that she had got engaged to a mystery man.

However, Caroline has now revealed that the ring belonged to a friend and in fact, she doesn't know whether she'll even make it down the aisle!

Caroline Flack teases engagement by wearing friend's wedding ring

Speaking to The Sun, she said: "My friend had just got married and her ring was so beautiful she let me try it on but it just looked weird on my finger.

"I will probably never get married so it was my one chance!"

But the petite presenter hasn't been short of attention and previously dated One Direction ladies' man, Harry Styles, as well as also being romantically linked to her former Xtra Factor co-star, Olly Murs - although the pair both insisted that they were just friends.

And now 33-year-old Caroline has revealed that she is happily dating again and has started sharing some of her dating pearls of wisdom with her new Xtra Factor co-star, Matt Richardson.

Last week it was announced that the 22-year-old comedian will be taking over from Olly on the popular ITV2 series and will be going behind the scenes with Caroline to get all the gossip from the judges and bring us some hilarious interviews with The X Factor hopefuls.

But despite Matt's glowing reputation when it comes to making people laugh, he doesn't appear to have as much luck with the ladies, according to Caroline.

"He is more like my naughty younger brother," she said. "He has already been texting me asking me for advice about what he should do with girls."

Bless him!
