Xtra Factor host Caroline Flack caused a huge stir dating Harry Styles, then aged just 17. The TV presenter incurred the wrath of furious One Direction fans, even reportedly receiving death threats.

However, she has now broken her silence about the infamous liaison, which is now over.

Talking to the Mail On Sunday, she said: "We remain very fond of each other because first and foremost we are friends. We got very close for a time but that's between me and Harry; what happened is between me and him, and then, you know, we decided it was best to be just friends."

The TV star added: "Harry is adorable, he is a nice person. He was nice to me; we were nice to each other. We are still friends, he's brilliant, he is so much fun."

It's fair to say the level of interest in the match probably took her by surprise. "When you think of the real news stories - people around the world dying of starvation, being killed in conflicts or born into poverty - and then you think what I did - I went out with a younger guy and I am the front page news - it's just absurd," she stated.

The romance may be over, but the consequences continue.

@LJ Fisherson: People like you really annoy me! If you think this is not news and something that you are not interested in, then why must you come onto this article in the first place? 
You are just as bad as the "idiots who read this". If this is a topic that interests them (e.g. it interested me). Then is that not good enough for them? Uk.Msn provides plenty of other new pieces, a lot of world issues or what is currently happening in the world. Why don't you just read them instead of commenting on here just to leave a ranted comment? 

Think about it...

i agree with you caroline it has nothing to do with any one else, dont understand what all the fuss was about, in fact i think you should go back with him, just to **** everybody of again. 
I dont think it was the age difference that caused the stir. It was because she looks as though she has been round the block a few times and he looks like a total virgin.

If anyone has bothered to read the comments from Ms Flack she also wonders why her whatever it was with Master Syles was newsworthy, as she rightly says there are other things happening that should be of more concern.  Dont think I ever heard J Lo or Ga Ga want to deny the limelight to make mention of world wide atrocities committed everyday.
So everything is really really nice. Great. It was nt the age difference that caused the stir I think it was because she looks as though she has been round the block a few times and he looked like a total virgin.
