Caroline Flack suffers awkward technical blunder as the mic stops working in final seconds of the show

CAROLINE Flack suffered an awkward technical blunder as the microphone stopped working during the final seconds of the show last night.

The presenter had just announced that Greg O’Shea and Amber Gill had won the show and was trying to wrap it up when her sound suddenly went off.

She started: “That’s it for Love Island 2019, Greg and Amber are your winning….”

But despite cutting off,  Caroline remained professional and continued with the live show – as the Islanders surrounded her and started celebrating.

During last night’s shock result Amber and Greg beat favourites Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury to win the ITV2 series.

They looked stunned as host Caroline told them they were the winning couple.

Amber said she could “not believe it”, while Greg added: “This is crazy.”

Runners up Molly-Mae and Tommy said they were thrilled for Amber and Greg.

“Amber has had a hard time in here, she deserves everything that’s coming to her,” said boxer Tommy.

As well as the title, the winning couple were given a cheque for £50,000.

Their romance was put to the test when Caroline told them they had to choose envelopes, one containing the money and one empty, and the person with the money had to decide whether to share it.

Greg picked the envelope with the £50,000 and chose to share it with Amber.

The lovebirds beat two other couples in the grand final on Monday night.

Ovie Soko and India Reynolds came third, and Curtis Pritchard and Maura Higgins came fourth.

During the final episode, the contestants made declarations of love to each other as they attended a romantic summer ball.

Greg penned a poem for Amber, in which he said he loved that she was “unique”.

Amber, who had a tough time earlier in the series when she was ditched by Michael Griffiths, replied that Greg had changed her experience at the 11th hour.

“You picked me up when I was at my most vulnerable and helped me to rediscover my smile,” she said.
