Samantha messaged him: “Love you Lew.”

Caroline’s close friend Olly Murs also attended the funeral and paid tribute to the star on Instagram.

Olly shared a video of himself and Caroline when they hosted The X Factor together in 2015.

My little angel. I will love you forever.

In the footage, Caroline is seen speaking to viewers as Olly repeatedly kisses her on the head.

Olly wrote: “Today was so hard but you know what goodbyes are not forever, goodbyes are not the end.

“They simply mean I’ll miss you Caz until we meet again,” followed by a broken heart emoji.

Caroline tragically took her own life at her home in London on February 15.

Caroline, 40, was due to stand trial for the alleged assault of Lewis on March 4.

The day before her death, Caroline had allegedly been informed that the Crown Prosecution Service was pursuing the trial, which Lewis did not support.

Police were called to her home following an incident on December 21, after which Caroline was arrested and charged with assault. In a message to fans she had vowed to prove her innocence and tell her side of the story.
