Caroline Flack’s ex Andrew Brady slams her as ‘toxic’ and says split ‘saved his life’ as he covers up tattoo

TV presenter Caroline Flack's bitter ex fiancé Andrew Brady has covered up a tattoo he got of her initials when they were in love - with a giant map of Australia.

The former Apprentice star, 27, was engaged to the Love Island presenter, 40, last year in a volatile, on-off romance.

They split a year ago and the presenter has since found love with model Lewis Burton, 26, while he moved to Australia.

But Andrew posted a spiky message to his followers on Instagram detailing his reasons for the inking cover-up, which he got at Bondi Ink, on Sydney's Bondi Beach, even claiming that the break-up saved his life.

Labourer Andrew wrote: "It's exactly a year tomorrow since I left a very toxic relationship and got away. Leaving probably saved my life.

"I mark it one year on by doing something I probably should have done a while ago."

The initials on his right wrist were etched over with a drawing of Australia and a love heart, telling fans: "It's finally gone."

He wrote afterwards: "Out with the old, in with the new."

The star also replied to a post from a follower telling him about a "toxic" relationship, saying: "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger."

Caroline admitted to being heartbroken after the split and said in the summer: "Do you know what? I don't want to be heartbroken again. I just can't."

She added: "I feel at my most calm, in control and happiest when I'm single, so at the minute that's what I'm doing.

"I'm not relying on a relationship to complete me, so there's no co-dependency going on.

"I'm just better."
