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

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

Last month, Olly shared a heartbreaking message after hearing of Caroline's tragic death.

He wrote on Instagram: "Caz... [expletive] this hurts! My heart is forever broken.. I’ve lost something today that I’ll never ever get back.. and that’s you.

"I haven’t stopped crying since the news, after we stopped working together in 2015 we didn’t see each other as much as we should have but we always spoke on the phone or messaged.

"I remember messaging you at your toughest time to let you know that I never read or listened to any of the crap people were saying about you, I was just worried about my friend.

"This will hurt forever, love you Cazza, your Ols."

Olly and Caroline first hosted spin-off show The Xtra Factor together from 2011 to 2012.

They went on to be hosts of the main show in 2015.

On Tuesday (March 10), Caroline was laid to rest at a private funeral held for friends and family.
