A man who has been accused of stalking Caroline Flack for three months has been arrested.
A 39-year-old man - who has not been named - has repeatedly turned up at the 'Xtra Factor' presenter's workplace to give her gifts and try and touch her, and following his arrest he has been bailed until August when he will undergo further questioning by police.
Caroline is said to be hoping she can now move on with her life.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It's been a pretty stressful past few weeks for Caroline. But now the police are involved, she hopes the matter will soon be resolved and she can move on with her life."
The man is believed to have followed Caroline's whereabouts on twitter and sent her letters before he turned up to an 'X Factor' audition in Manchester.
A spokesperson for the Met Police said: "A 39-year-old man was arrested and questioned, and has been bailed until mid-August pending further investigation."
Caroline - who previously dated One Direction hunk Harry Styles - will be fronting 'The Xtra Factor' alone this year after doing it in 2011 with Olly Murs, as his tour responsibilities have stopped him from being in the UK
However, he will be back to join her at the live stages of the ITV2 show.
