CAROLINE Flack has returned to Instagram after a seven week absence to share sultry pictures with her dog Ruby.
The 40-year-old hasn’t posted anything on social media since Christmas Eve, after she attended court accused of assaulting boyfriend Lewis Burton.
But this evening, Caroline shared four snaps of her posing with her beloved pooch while wearing a black bra top.
Caroline wore red lipstick and her blonde hair tousled and swept over to one side, captioning the shots with a love heart emoji.
As well as staring sultrily down the camera, Caroline was also seen playing with Ruby and pulling her in for a kiss.
Caroline’s return comes after boyfriend Lewis contacted the star on Instagram ahead of her trial for assault.
The MailOnline reports he commented on a video of Caroline posted on her friend’s account of her trying out indoor rock climbing.
Lewis wrote: “You’re both useless.”
Caroline, 40, has been keeping a low profile since she was charged with assaulting Lewis in December.
She was released on bail until her trial next month and is said to have ditched alcohol as she eyes up a TV comeback.
But her career and relationship are on hold until the trial in March.
A judge banned her from having any form of contact with 27-year-old Lewis who she is accused of hitting with a lamp while he slept.
They were said to be covered in blood when police arrived at Caroline’s Islington flat after Lewis allegedly called 999 saying that Caroline “tried to kill him”.
Those who arrived at the bloodied scene on December 12 likened it to a horror movie.
Caroline has promised to break her silence about what happened, while Lewis issued a statement denying the assault ever happened.
The Sun revealed the pair had split amid tension about the court banning contact.
But Lewis said they’re still together – despite messaging another woman telling her he’s single.
