"I'm going to spend some time reflecting on how lucky I am to have my family".

"We never stopped laughing, flirting (who can forget that), eating cheeseburger chasers, singing (which I always loved hearing), the arguments (which I never won), the disagreements on what jokes to say or what outfits you should wear, these are the moments I've always cherished but right now as I write this it's hit me I won't have them moments again". It follows her being charged with allegedly assaulting her boyfriend, Lewis Burton. In a statement released on Saturday night, her management company criticized the CPS for pursuing the "show trial" even after Burton said he did not support it.

Olly Murs, who worked alongside Caroline Flack for several years on The X Factor and spin-off show The Xtra Factor has paid an emotional tribute to his friend following her death, promising that his kids and grandkids will know about the TV presenter.

Her body was found in her east London apartment.


"We would ask that the press both respect the privacy of the family at this hard time".

"My heart is broken we had something so special", he wrote.

Her shocking death has prompted a flurry of heartbroken tributes from colleagues and fans who are struggling to deal with the tragic events. An unbelievable woman. I have no words. "Nothing will bring you back but I will try [to] make you proud every day", Burton continued.

Laura Whitmore has spoken out about the death of Caroline Flack. Because she is talented and famous she automatically gets treated differently by society and in turn the tabloids and social media. "This kind of scrutiny and speculation is a lot to take on for one person".


She added, " I'm a human being at the end of the day and I'm not going to be silenced when I have a story to tell and a life to keep going with".

"I'm taking some time out to get feeling better and learn some lessons from situations I've got myself into to".

Earlier in the month of December 2019, Flack shared a quote on her Instagram profile asking for people to be kind.

She said: "Be kind, only you are responsible for how you treat others and what you put out in the world".
