LOVE Island’s Dr Alex George has admitted he is “too scared” to ask host Caroline Flack out on a date.
The reality TV star, 27, previously admitted the presenter, 38, was his ideal woman while in the villa – and now stand-in Lorraine host Christine Lampard has offered to help set them up.

Asked about whether romance could be on the horizon between him and Caroline – who is on-off with former fiance Andrew Brady – he said: “Caroline’s brilliant, she’s absolutely lovely.
“I can’t see a future for us together. Sadly I don’t think she’ll recouple with me, but one can always dream.
“I’d be too shy [to ask her], I’m too scared.”
Christine laughed: “I’m not, I’ll ask her! I’ll text her afterwards, ‘Caroline…’.”

Alex laughed: “She’s brilliant, she’s a great host of the show. We had a lot of fun, banter throughout it. She’s brilliant.”
He was seen on his Instagram Story dancing with Caroline, who was wearing a sailor’s hat, at the Love Island reunion party on Sunday night.
It comes after he admitted she was his “type” back in June on the hit series.
The comment caused the host to joke at the time that it was “too late” as she flashed her engagement ring on Love Island: Aftersun.
