BAFTA TV Awards 2018: Caroline Flack TRIPS UP on the way to collect Love Island gong… as viewers share outrage that reality show got prestigious gong
She was over the moon that reality show Love Island would be collecting its first BAFTA TV Award.
And Caroline Flack was so excited that she tripped up the stairs to the stage at Sunday night’s awards ceremony, after the reality show scooped the Reality & Constructed Factual gong.
Not everyone was so overjoyed, as viewers at home shared their dismay at the success of the dating programme.
‘I knew I shouldn’t have worn this dress!’ Caroline Flack tripped over her tulle gown on Sunday night, as she went up to collect the BAFTA TV Award for Love Island
Love Island’s victory came as a shock for many TV fans, after the ITV2 favourite became one of the most talked-about shows of 2017.
Taking to the stage to accept their prize was host Caroline, along with the show’s most recent stars Chris Hughes and Marcel Somerville, while Iain Sterling rushed to the stage in a break from providing commentary for the show.
Joking about struggling to make it to the stage in her grand pink gown Caroline said: ‘I knew this dress was a bad idea. Wow a BAFTA on behalf of all of us thank you so much.
‘It’s been so brilliant watching this show grown over the last three years. A huge thank you to all the Islanders for giving so much of themselves.’

Speaking to BANG Showbiz after collecting their prize, 2017 contestant Chris Hughes said: ‘For an audience to be so captivated and invest their time into other people’s relationships, I think that’s why it’s so special.
‘It’s just a beautiful show. Marcel is going to change is Insta[gram] bio to BAFTA winner, and I think I’m going to do the same.’
Whilst fellow 2017 alum Marcel added: ‘For me being in the villa and being around people you’ve just met in a week and being able to build bonds with them, it was amazing to see all the friendships blossoming.
Thrilled: Caroline Flack joined the show’s stars on-stage to accept the award, as the ITV2 show beat out Celebrity Hunted, Old People’s Home for 4 Year Olds and The Real Full Monty
‘It was just nice to be part of it. I’m happy. I can’t say much more.’
Caroline is still coming down from cloud nine, after experiencing a love island all of her own.
The TV presenter became engaged to her boyfriend Andrew Brady in Greece two weeks ago, after just three months of romance.
Caroline was quick to flaunt her dazzling engagement ring on Sunday night, as she hit the red carpet at the 2018 BAFTA TV Awards.
The Love Island host, 38, could not contain her beaming smile as she posed for cameras at the Royal Festival Hall in her pink tulle gown, and the rock firmly on her fourth finger.
Stunned: Viewers rushed to Twitter in disbelief that Love Island had scooped a prestigious BAFTA award, ahead of the show’s return for a fourth series next month

Caroline turned heads at the star-studded event in her pastel pink tulle gown, embroidered with black flowers across the bodice.
Pulling into a feminine one-shoulder and sheer sleeve, the dress then cinched in at her waist before expanding out into a bold fairytale-inspired skirt.
Enhancing the magical look with Grecian touches, she accessorised with a chunky silver arm cuff and swept her hair into a loose chignon – leaving a few curls loose to frame her face.

While her dress made a statement on the carpet however, it was her glittering ring from new beau Andrew Brady, 27, that caught the most attention.
The pair started dating in February, and became engaged only three months later while on holiday in Greece.
The news came as a surprise to fans, as the couple had dramatically split and reconciled only one month before – amid claims Andrew had been unfaithful, and was using her for fame.

However, while she admits the proposal was out of the blue, Caroline recently gushed that she knew her romance with CBB star Andrew was serious from the very beginning.
Speaking to the Mail on Sunday’s YOU Magazine, she said: ‘I had no idea he was planning on asking me to marry him! But I knew things felt different in the lead-up.
‘From the very first date with Andrew I felt as though I’d known him for years. I’ve never had that feeling before.’
