Caroline Flack‘s bitter ex Andrew Brady has covered a tattoo of her initials which he had on his wrist to mark a year since the pair’s ‘toxic’ relationship ended.
The former Apprentice star, 29, took to Instagram on Thursday as he visited Bondi Ink to have the ‘CF’ covered with the shape of Australia.
Andrew was engaged to Caroline, 40, last year but since they split – which he said ‘probably saved his life’ – he has relocated to Sydney while she has moved on with new beau Lewis Burton, 27.

In a series of stories Andrew smiled as he prepared to go under the needle and wrote a message to explain why he decided to get some new ink.
He wrote: ‘It’s exactly a year tomorrow since I left a very toxic relationship and got away.
‘Leaving probably saved my life. I mark it one year on by doing something I should have done a while ago’
After having his new tattoo Andrew shared another video where he thanks Bondi Ink for ‘covering up this absolute monstrosity.’
Moving on: Since splitting with Andrew last year, Caroline, 40, has moved on with new beau Lewis Burton (pictured in London in October)
He continued: ‘So moral of the story is don’t get your partner’s initials tattooed on you because when it all goes t**s up you’re gonna have to get it covered up.’
Caroline’s representation declined to comment when approached by MailOnline.
The Love Island presenter confirmed her split from Andrew last December, saying she ‘won’t go back’ him.

She also confirmed they were no longer living together after officially ending their volatile romance.
She told the Sun: ‘I’m on my own now. So I’m sorting myself out, I’m doing what I want to do. I’m putting my head into this, into work and focusing on acting.’
Caroline is now with model Lewis Burton, 27, and in November sparked engagement rumours when she coyly hid her ring finger in snaps.

Amid the rumours Andrew shared a cryptic video about ‘taking a break from it all’ on his Instagram Stories.
He told fans that he’s decided to take a few days off to spend time with family, as he headed off on a camping trip with a friend.
Andrew said: ‘Had a few days off – enjoyed some family time with the Broerens’ and the Crows’. So I’ve actually seen some family-friends and a friend of mine and his family.

‘It’s been nice, a few days off. Sometimes you just have to, just take a break from it all.’
The reality star’s break came as Caroline hid her ring finger as she cosied up to her Lewis at the opening of Cahoots Ticket Hall and Control Room in Soho.
Caroline sparked rumours that the tennis player had popped the question as she was seen wearing engagement ring while heading to the gym earlier on in the day.
A representative for the star denied the speculations at the time, stating: ‘Caroline is 100% not engaged.’
