Caroline Flack turned to drink to cope with X Factor pressure

Caroline Flack says she took solace in alcohol during a criticised stint as the co-host of the X Factor.

The presenter took over the show alongside Olly Murs for its last series.

However, they have both been dumped from the programme after a few on-air gaffes.

Speaking to The Sun, Flack said that she started to frequently drink wine to deal with the pressure.

She said: "I used to turn to wine if I had a stressful day. And I acted like it was a treat.

"But it's not a treat. You're just covering up your stress rather than dealing with it."

Flack added that she wasn't "feeling 100 per cent healthy or 100 per cent happy" during her time on the show.

Former host Dermot O'Leary has now rejoined the show.
