‘Strictly Come Dancing': Caroline Flack Reveals Simon Cowell's Supportive Texts, Credits ‘Strictly' With Helping Her Through Split

Caroline Flack has shared her joy following her ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ win, revealing that she actually thinks the show helped her through her recent love split.

Caroline and her boyfriend of 18 months, Jack Street, parted ways just weeks before the final.

However, rather than blaming the show for the split, Caroline reckons dancing actually helped her deal with her emotions.

“It’s amazing to end it on a high like this. It’s been an interesting year, very testing in a lot of ways.

“It’s the way you handle things sometimes that make you feel stronger in yourself. And if you handle them right, you come out feeling good.”

The presenter also revealed that she had support for her former boss Simon Cowell, stating: “Simon Cowell sent me a lovely text saying how well I’ve been doing. And he was really proud.”

Caroline beat Simon Webbe, Frankie Bridge and Mark Wrightto win the Glitterball trophy on Saturday night, and became the first person ever to receive top marks for all 3 of their final dances.

While Caroline has remained relatively quiet about the split, reports suggest that Jack was spotted partying with ‘Glee’ actress Dianna Agron in LA.

Caroline tweeted her ex with the phrase “fill yourself with glee”, after he urged followers to vote for her on ‘Strictly’. The tweet has since been deleted.
