Alongside a string of photos of herself and Caroline, Mollie wrote on Instagram: “I can’t even find the right words to say here and I’m sure it sounds rambly but she deserves a million tributes and more.

“Everyone remember her in the best way. Carrie always had a smile on her face, a naughty laugh and her heart open wide.
