Love Island: Caroline Flack has explained why viewers have supposedly seen 'less of her' on the dating show this time round.

Amid speculation that she has been 'axed' from Love Island, Caroline took to Twitter to explain why she as host hasn't been popping up on our screens so much - or so we think. And there's a pretty simple explanation for it to be honest.

Her role has changed and so has the format of the show.

Caroline revealed that Love Island decided to ditch their weekly dumpings from the island, meaning there haven't been as many exit interviews this time round - hence why we feel like she hasn't been around as much.

Cazza made the admission when responding to a fan who said they missed the usual exit interviews we had seen on last year's series. When they asked if there would be any more, Caroline replied: "There are ... At the end ... It's just a diff format as we don't want an eviction every week :) (sic)."

She then added that actually, the amount of time she will spend on the current series of Love Island will be no different to last series.

Caroline tweeted in response to an article that questioned where she had been: "Im doing same amount of shows as last time. In a diff order. But thanks for the concern everyone (sic)."

She added a thumbs up emoji alongside her tweet.

That's certainly ended all the speculation, hasn't it?

Love Island episode 31: the recoupling


Caroline's tweets correlate with what an insider from the show had recently told our friends at Digital Spy. Speaking about Caroline's role as host, they said: "We got rid of the live vote each week to allow the show to be more flexible.

"And there's so much drama this year that we wanted to let it play out, rather than forcing something because we've made a rod for our backs by having a weekly live show... Caroline's involved in big, sensational bombshells."

That she has been! Remember when she dramatically revealed to Rachel that Rykard had slept with Olivia behind her back? You can't get more sensational than that!

Earlier today, Caroline touched back down in Majorca and teased that "big things are gonna happen" on Love Island in the next few days. Since then, we have learned that the islanders will be recoupling and will then have to vote for which couple they think is the weakest.

Those couples will then face the public vote, one person from each couple will be saved and one will be dumped, with Caroline revealing the result in tomorrow night's episode (30 June).

Ooh! This is going to be good...

Love Island airs nightly on ITV2.
