Caroline Flack remembered by friends: An ‘angel among us’
Caroline Flack’s friends have remembered the star on the one-year anniversary of her death. The Love Island presenter took her own life at the age of 40.
Flack’s former boyfriend, Lewis Burton, posted a picture of the pair together and wrote on Instagram Stories: “I will never forget you.”
Singer Rita Ora shared a snap of the friends together, with Flack putting her arm around the singer and wrote: “Angel among us.”
Love Island narrator Iain Stirling also remembered his friend and colleague.
Accompanying a picture of the pair sharing a drink together, he wrote: “To my friend Caroline, thinking of you today. Miss you mate x”
His wife, Love Island host Laura Whitmore, posted an image of Flack.
And she wrote: “You’ve got to laugh a little, cry a little, until the clouds roll by a little.”
Presenter and friend Dawn O’Porter said Flack’s death is “still as raw” one year later.
“It’s good to talk about grief because no matter how alone it makes you feel, you are actually surrounded by a lot of people who have felt it too,” she said.
“If you dare to open up it does help.”
And she wrote next to a picture of Flack smiling: “I miss you my love.”
Flack’s manager, Nathan Charles Smith, shared videos of the star laughing as she took part in a photoshoot, and a clip of the presenter singing while sitting on the piano.
Flack was found dead at her home on February 15 2020.
A coroner later said the TV presenter killed herself because she knew she was being prosecuted for assault and could not face the coverage.
