According to the Eastern Daily Press, 200 relatives and friends from across the world gathered at GreenAcres Colney on the edge of Norwich to say goodbye to Caroline.

The publication also obtained photos of the order of service - which had a photo of Caroline alongside the words: "You were loved, Caroline Louise Flack."

The service lasted nearly two hours and Caroline's mum Chris said there were "lots of memories, smiles but mostly tears" as they remembered Caroline.

Chris added to the publication: "All the family would like to say thank you so much to all Carrie's friends who travelled from all over the world to be there that day and who appreciated why we wanted to bring her back home to Norfolk.

"Friends included all the old pals she had either worked alongside or presented with on Fash FC, I'm A Celebrity, Xtra Factor, Love Island, friends old and new from the world of Strictly, the Bake Off and many many more."

Her mum said Caroline's "friends from schooldays, college days and present day also gathered to exchange stories and pay tributes to my beautiful girl".

All the family would like to say thank you so much to all Carrie's friends who travelled from all over the world to be there.

At the funeral, there was also "two wonderful live performances" by Lucie Jones - who sang She Used To Be Mine from the film Waitress - and her close friend Ciara, who sang The Sulking Room which was a song written for the presenter.

Caroline's mum also thanked the Rose at the Black Horse for holding a reception following the funeral.

She also said the family appreciated the privacy given to the family and friends on the day.

She added that "no photos have been posted of that day by anyone actually at the wake and I thank every one for respecting the family's wishes".

At the funeral, the family wore charity t-shirts created by Keith Lemon which had Caroline's face printed on them with the phrase she said before her death: "Be Kind."

Caroline died at her London home last month after taking her own life.

The day before her death, Caroline had allegedly been informed that the Crown Prosecution Service was pursuing her assault trial after an alleged altercation with her boyfriend Lewis Burton in December - something he didn't support.
