Caroline Flack has returned to social media this evening after taking some time out of the limelight.
The former Love Island host, 40, shared a collage of snaps with her dog Ruby as her first Instagram post of the year.
The series of pictures show Caroline cuddling her pooch wearing a skimpy top and bright red lipstick.
Caroline puckered-up for a smooch with Ruby in one of the snaps.
The post racked up over 12,000 likes in the first six minutes but Caroline turned off the comments section, leaving her fans unable to leave her a message.
Caroline's social media post comes hours after her boyfriend Lewis Burton reportedly reached out to her via the photo-sharing site, despite a court order banning them from contacting each other.

Lewis, 27, publicly commented on a post by Caroline's pal Mollie Grosber in which the ITV starlet was trying her hand at rock climbing.
In a now-deleted message, Lewis wrote: "You're both useless," before adding a heart emoji.
MailOnline reports the video was uploaded with the caption: "We are professional climbers #healthiswealth."
There is no suggestion that either Mollie or Caroline replied to Lewis either publicly or privately.
During an appearance at Highbury and Islington's magistrates court on December 23, Caroline pleaded not guilty to a change of assault by beating.
District Judge Newton gave Caroline conditional bail.

Following the court appearance Caroline took to Instagram to thanks fans for their support.
Posting to her Instagram story, the blonde babe wrote: "Thankfully I know a lot of you will not believe all that you have heard and read following today's court hearing… thank you for your continued support and love.
"It's going to be a relief when I am able to give my side of the story, when I'm allowed to."
Earlier this month, reports claimed that Caroline is penning a self-help book.
"She wants it to be more than just a story about her.
"She wants to talk about the problems she’s encountered and how she’s overcome them.
"She hopes to be able to help others who may be going through similar difficulties. Part self-help, part memoir is the style that Caroline is looking for."
"Caroline has found the process incredibly cathartic," a source told Mail Online.
