Caroline Flack’s inquest

At Caroline’s inquest, Christine accused police and prosecutors of “having it in” for the presenter.

The late Love Island host took her own life in February – weeks before she was due to stand trial for alleging assaulting her boyfriend in December.

Speaking at her inquest at Poplar Coroner’s Court, Christine told deputy chief Crown prosecutor Lisa Ramsarran: “After listening to you and the first lady (Ms Bateman), I feel even more that you had it in for Caroline.

“I now know how Caroline felt and it is not very nice.”

Christine also told how a picture of the bloody scene from the flat her from the night of the incident had “killed her”.

Christine told how Lewis had then sent the picture to a former girlfriend.

Meanwhile, in a written statement, Lewis said: “The last time I saw Caroline she was very upset, in fact devastated. She was not in a good place emotionally.

“Sometimes she talked about taking her own life when she was extremely upset.

“The media were constantly bashing her character, writing hurtful stories… generally hounding her daily.

“What was worrying her most was the police case and losing her presenting job on Love Island. Plus not being able to see me.”

“They have been meeting up in secret for weeks but their newfound friendship hasn’t gone unnoticed by mutual pals.”
