Former Love Island presenter Caroline Flack found dead at her flat after taking her own life

English radio and television presenter, Caroline Flack has been found dead after she took her life in her London flat three weeks before she was due in court for an alleged assault on her boyfriend, Lewis Burton.

A family statement on Saturday said, “We can confirm that our Caroline 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 the former Love Island host took her own life and was found dead in her East London flat on Saturday.

It was also reported that the TV presenter, aged 40, took her own life after a worried friend who was staying with her, went to the shops, leaving her alone at her London flat.

When the friend arrived back, she was unable to go in. The producer friend then called Flack's father Ian who gained entry to the flat and found the star's lifeless body.

The 40-year-old TV had stepped down from her TV work after being arrested and charged with assault in December. She was due to go on trial for allegedly attacking her boyfriend Lewis Burton with a lamp at her flat in Islington, north London, on 12 December, with her court hearing scheduled for March 4.

In a statement obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, an ITV spokesperson 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."

Following her death, Flack's management have criticised prosecutors over what they called a "show trial" despite her boyfriend saying he did not want to press charge

Francis Ridley, of Money Talent Management, said: "In recent months Caroline had been under huge pressure because of an ongoing case and potential trial which has been well reported.

"The Crown Prosecution Service pursued this when they knew not only how very vulnerable Caroline was but also that the alleged victim did not support the prosecution and had disputed the CPS version of events.

"The CPS should look at themselves today and how they pursued a show trial that was not only without merit but not in the public interest. And ultimately resulted in significant distress to Caroline."

In response, the CPS said its "deepest sympathies go to the family and friends of Caroline Flack".

"Given the tragic circumstances, we will not comment on the specifics of this case at this stage," a spokesperson added.

Flack's last post on Instagram was a collage of pictures, showing her playing with her dog, Ruby on Thursday.

The next day, her boyfriend Lewis Burton posted a picture of him and Flack on Instagram and wrote: 'Happy Valentine's... Love You'

Caroline Flack began her career in the comedy series Bo' Selecta! in 2002 and went on to present shows on the ITV network such as The Xtra Factor. Flack began presenting the dating reality series Love Island in 2015, which she became well known for.

Mercy Aigbe has denied encouraging girls to be side chicks to married men, following the backlash that trailed her statement in a YouTube video that went viral.

He belongs to another woman so please it had better be worth it. Don’t go and collect chocolate and flowers as gifts from a married man oh.

“If you do, your head needs to be examined. If you are dating a married man, chop his money, collect his money because that man is already married. So stupid girls will be dating a married man will be doing love…sis he is not yours. He belongs to another woman so use your brain”

However defending herself after the backlash that trailed the video, the actress said she will never encourage girls to be side chicks to married or single men. She claimed that she was taken out of context as some parts of the video was cut off by ''mischievious persons.''

According to Mercy Aigbe, the video shared on Valentine's Day was meant to be a fun video for every one to laugh and also get her message. She added that she was encouraging married men to stay faithful to their wives because if they don't, they will get extorted by their side chicks.

The actress stated that she always tells girls they can get way more than what they get from married men when they work on their own because there is dignty in labour. Mercy also averred that everything she owns is from her sweat and everything said about her when the first video went viral is not who she is.
