Sharing a loved-up snap of him and Caroline, 40, on a night out, he captioned the shot: “Happy valentines love you.”

Caroline can be seen running her hands through her hair, while Lewis is wearing a pink shirt.

Commenting on a short clip of her rock climbing, Lewis wrote: “You’re both useless.”

Soon after Lewis’ comment, the former Love Island host broke her social silence by sharing a string of pictures with her dog Ruby.

Caroline hadn’t posted anything on social media since Christmas Eve.

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 thebloodied scene on December 12 likened it to a horror movie.

Caroline, who stepped down as host of the current series of the ITV2 dating show, denied assault by beating when she appeared at Highbury Corner magistrates court.

Meanwhile, Lewis issued a statement denying the assault ever happened.
