What will happen to Caroline Flack’s fortune?

The official probate figures were revealed on Tuesday (November 10).

Her mum Christine said: “We will use the money wisely to help good causes that Caroline was passionate.”

Meanwhile, The Sun reports that Caroline’s friends have ensured the money will go to worthy causes.

The law in England and Wales states that anyone who dies without making a will is declared intestate.

This means Caroline’s estate will be formally shared between her parents.

It’s believed the TV star had earned £2million during her career, but it dropped to £827,691 after debts and death duties were deducted.

What happened to Caroline?

Caroline died a few weeks before she was due to stand trial for allegedly assaulting her boyfriend Lewis.

At the inquest into her daughter’s death, Christine accused police and prosecutors of “having it in” for the star.

She said in a statement: “I believe [Caroline] was seriously let down by the authorities and particularly by the CPS.

“I believe this was a show trial. I feel the prosecutor was unkind to Caroline and my family.”
