Channel 4 are reportedly not keen to work with Caroline or air the new show following recent personal troubles.

Caroline Flack could potentially lose her presenting role on a new and controversial Channel 4 show, The Surjury.

Following the 40-year-old’s recent assault charges on boyfriend Lewis Burton, which she pleaded not guilty to, Channel 4 are reportedly worried about keeping Caroline on board.

A source told the tabloids: “Caroline's looming court case and the bad publicity surrounding her has left a dark cloud over the show.”

However, there’s even talks if the show will go ahead at all due to its nature as well.

They continued: “It's a devastating blow for her as it was a huge break into the mainstream.

"There have been ongoing discussions and some people on the production team have admitted they don't think it'll ever air.”
