Caroline Flack’s heartbroken boyfriend Lewis Burton has paid tribute this morning, following the Love Island star’s death yesterday.

Alongside a picture of the couple smiling together in the sunshine, Lewis, 27, wrote: “My heart is broken, we had something so special.

“I am so lost for words, I am in so much pain I miss you so much, I know you felt safe with me, you always said ‘I don’t think about anything else when I am with you’.

“And I was not allowed to be there this time, I kept asking and asking. I will be your voice baby, I promise I will ask all the questions you wanted and I will get all the answers.

“Nothing will bring you back but I will try to make you proud every day. I love you with all my heart.”

Lewis and Caroline had been banned from seeing each other, as she waited to stand trial for assault against him.

The 40-year-old TV star was arrested in the early hours of December 12 and charged with assault by beating.

It was alleged at a court hearing on December 23 that the presenter had hit Lewis over the head with a lamp, which he denied.

Nothing will bring you back but I will try to make you proud every day. I love you with all my heart.

Caroline and former pro tennis player Lewis first went official with their relationship in August, 2019.

On Friday, the model posted a message to Caroline on Instagram, despite being warned not to contact each other, which read: “Happy Valentine’s. Love you.”
