Caroline Flack flew to London from Mallorca where she was filming Love Island to give ex-fiancé Andrew Brady his engagement ring back, according to reports.
Photos showed The Apprentice star Andrew leaving Caroline’s London apartment with hoards of belongings, including their pet dog Ruby, earlier this week.
But it has now been claimed that he also left with the £6,500 vintage diamond engagement ring he gifted to Caroline, and she went to long lengths to get it back to him.
The Mail On Sunday reports that Caroline halted filming the hit ITV2 dating show to catch a flight home and return the ring, making sure Andrew would leave the property.
A source told the publication: “She came back from the island to get him out. He wouldn’t leave the house without the ring.
“She had been wearing it because she was quite fond of it and they were still speaking.

“They had a row and are no longer speaking. She had hoped they would work things out, but they won’t now.”
The claim comes just one day after Andrew issued a lengthy statement about the end of the former couple’s engagement.
Writing to his 65,900 Twitter followers and 217,000 Instagram followers, the Celebrity Big Brother star said: “My relationship with Caroline will always remain special to me, we were deeply in love, as proven by the level of commitment from the early stage of our relationship. For reasons personal to us, we mutually decided it was going to be very difficult to sustain a long term relationship, but was more about our personalities than our actions.
“Our relationship will remain special in my life, a part I will never forget. Caroline knows I wish her every success and hope one day she can find happiness. Also my regards to her parents and family who made me feel special and part of their family.
“I was extremely naive at the beginning of our relationship as I genuinely didn’t realise how much press attention we would get. Since our relationship began we have been under constant scrutiny. Our friends and family have had to endure lies printed in the media that have affected us deeply and ultimately played a role in the break down of our relationship.”
