Caroline Flack found dead at her London flat.

Caroline Flack, the Love Island presenter, has been found dead at her London flat after taking her own life.

The 40-year-old had stepped down from her position fronting the popular ITV show after she was charged with assaulting her boyfriend Lewis Burton.

She had been due to return to court on March 4.

Her family said in a statement last night: “We can confirm that our Caroline passed away today. We would ask that the press respect the privacy of the family at this difficult time.”

Tributes poured in from friends and former colleagues, with many saying they were struggling to come to terms with the news.

Laura Whitmore, who took over hosting the winter series of Love Island, tweeted: “I’m trying to find the words but I can’t.”

This Morning presenters Eamonn Holmes and Phillip Schofield also shared messages of support. Holmes said he was “shocked beyond belief”, while Schofield said: “In a world where you can be anything, be kind”.

Former Love Island contestant Amber Davies, who won the ITV2 series in 2017, tweeted: “My heart is actually broken.”
