Caroline Flack's best pal describes 'heartbreaking loss' and says she'll 'never stop loving' star

CAROLINE Flack's close friend has described her "heartbreaking loss" and said she will "never ever, ever stop loving" the Love Island star.

The TV presenter was found dead at the age of 40 at her home in North London yesterday after taking her own life.



Her management said last night they were "devastated at the loss of our client and friend" and criticised the decision to press ahead with her assault case.

Today her close pal Mollie Grosberg shared an emotional tribute along with a series of snaps of them together.

They had gone rock-climbing just days before her tragic death.

Mollie wrote on Instagram: "I can't even find the right words to say here and I'm sure it sounds rambly but she deserves a million tributes and more.

"Everyone remember her in the best way. Carrie always had a smile on her face, a naughty laugh and her heart open wide.

"When she let you in, you were the luckiest and she taught me to love everyone and forgive everyone. She forgave so easily and loved so hard and I'll never ever ever stop loving her."

She added: "Today feels like it's not real and I wish it wasn't. This girl was a force and always said the right thing, always made me feel safe and looked after even during her own s**t.

"This is the worst pain I've ever felt and we all feel it. This massive and painful and heartbreaking loss for all her friends and her incredible family.

"I hope we find peace with each other the way she has found it now. She brought us all together. I love you forever and always my baby girl. I love you forever and ever and ever."

YOU'RE NOT ALONE

EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.

It doesn't discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.

It's the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.

And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.

Yet it's rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.

That is why The Sun launched the You're Not Alone campaign.

The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.

Let's all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others… You're Not Alone.

Earlier today Caroline's boyfriend Lewis Burton said his "heart is broken" following the death of the TV presenter.

Lewis, who was not allowed to have any contact with his girlfriend since late last year due to her bail conditions over charges of an alleged assault on him, said he would now be her "voice" and would "get all the answers", in an emotional tribute on Instagram.

Beside a picture of them together, he wrote: "My heart is broken we had something so special.

"I am so lost for words I am in so much pain I miss you so much I know you felt safe with me you always said I don't think about anything else when I am with you and I was not allowed to be there this time I kept asking and asking."

Burton, 27, added: "I will be your voice baby I promise I will ask all the questions you wanted and I will get all the answers nothing will bring you back but I will try make you proud everyday.

"I love you with all my heart."

Caroline, who was described as "vulnerable" by her management, stepped down from presenting the current winter series of Love Island after she was charged with assaulting Lewis at her flat in Islington in December.

She entered a not guilty plea to the assault charge at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court and was said to be determined to prove her innocence.

Her bail conditions banned her from having contact with her boyfriend ahead of a trial next month.

In a statement released on Saturday night, her management company criticised the Crown Prosecution Service for pressing ahead with what it called her "show trial" even after her boyfriend said he did not support it.
