"Love Island has been my world for the last five years, it's the best show on telly. In order not to detract attention from the upcoming series I feel the best thing I can do is to stand down for series six. I want to wish the incredible team working on the show a fantastic series in Cape Town," she wrote on the social media platform, according to Yahoo!.

A rep for Flack did not immediately return Fox News' request for comment.

An ITV spokesperson told Fox News, "ITV has a long-standing relationship with Caroline and we understand and accept her decision. We will remain in contact with her over the coming months about future series of Love Island."
