At the time of her death, Caroline had recently stood down as the host of Love Island after being charged with allegedly assaulting he boyfriend, Lewis Burton.

Coroner Mary Hassell ruled Flack’s death a suicide.

She told the court at the time: “I find the reason for her taking her life was she knew she was being prosecuted for certainty. She knew she would face the media, press, publicity – it would all come down upon her.”
