Officers responded to reports of a man being assaulted. The man was not seriously injured, police said. Flack will appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court on December 23. She was bailed until that date.

A spokesman for the presenter told the BBC: “We confirm that police attended Caroline’s home following a private domestic incident. She is cooperating with the appropriate people to resolve matters. We will not be making any further comment for legal reasons.”

ITV declined comment.

Flack, the former Strictly Come Dancing winner, is gearing up for her sixth season as host of ITV’s hit reality TV format, which will air its first “winter show” in January from Cape Town, South Africa.
