A former Love Island host, Caroline Flack was reported to have been found dead at her home in east London on Saturday, in an apparent suicide.

The family of the late reality TV host who was just 40, confirmed the sad news on Saturday.

The statement from the family read: “We can confirm that our Caroline Flack passed away today on the 15th February. We would ask that the press both respect the privacy of the family at this difficult time.”

A lawyer for the Flack family confirmed that Caroline took her own life.

According to the report by Evening Standard, Lewis Burton speaking about the incident, defended Ms Flack.

A spokesperson for ITV said: “Everybody at Love Island and ITV is shocked and saddened by this desperately sad news. Caroline was a much loved member of the Love Island team and our sincere thoughts and condolences are with her family and friends.”

It has been a tough few months for Caroline, after she was arrested and charged with assault by beating following an alleged fight at her home last month. However, she denied she had hit Lewis Burton 27, and was released on bail until her trial on March 4.

In even more tragic circumstances, on Valentine’s Day on Friday, Lewis showed his public support for Caroline, writing alongside a picture of them both: “Happy valentines.”

Following her appearance at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court just before Christmas, Caroline Flack admitted it will be a “relief” when she is able to tell her “side of the story”.

She wrote on her Instagram Stories at the time: “Thankfully I know a lot of you will not believe all that you have heard and read following today’s court hearing … thank you for your continued support and love … It’s going to be a relief when I am able to give my side of the story, when I’m allowed to x. (sic)”

The court heard the prosecution allege that Caroline hit Lewis “in the head with a lamp”, but following the hearing he took to Instagram to insist she did not strike him with the object.

He wrote: “It’s been heartbreaking I can’t see my girlfriend over Christmas. What I witnessed today was horrible. She did not hit me with a lamp. Arguments do happen every day in every relationship. Gutted I am not allowed to protect her right now.”

As part of her bail conditions, Caroline Flack was not allowed to see Lewis.

Just hours before her court appearance, the TV presenter posted an emotional message on her Instagram Stories, admitting it is the “worst time of [her] life”.

She wrote at the time: “This is the worst time of my life. I don’t know where to go to. Where to look. Who to trust. Or who I even am. (sic)”

Caroline chose to step down as host of the current series of ‘Love Island’ in order not to “detract attention” from the show as she faced the assault charge.

The 40-year-old star – who was replaced by Laura Whitmore shared at the time:

“‘Love Island’ has been my world for the last five years, it’s the best show on telly. In order to not detract attention from the upcoming series I feel the best thing I can do is to stand down for series six. I want to wish the incredible team working on the show a fantastic series in Cape Town.”
