Laura Whitmore pays tribute to Caroline Flack on two-year anniversary of death

“This day is hard.”

Laura Whitmore has paid tribute to the late Caroline Flack on the two year anniversary of her tragic passing.

The presenter shared a video of herself with Caroline to her Instagram, where the two joked about pitching a show called Cougar Mountain to ITV.

“This is how I like to think of Flack. Happy and not taking herself too seriously,” Laura wrote. “We hung out a lot that year and I look back at it with such fun memories.

“This day is hard and a reminder that no one knows anyone else’s demons but today I like to think of all the good memories too.”

She added: “Cougar Mountain, what a show that would have been!”

The official Love Island Instagram page also shared a tribute to Caroline.

Alongside an image of her during her time presenting the show, a caption read: “Caroline, forever in our hearts.”

Fans and friends rushed to the comments to share some kind words of their own.

Jack Fowler, who took part in the 2018 series of Love Island, wrote: “Always had a smile on her.”

Meanwhile, series six star Biggs-Marvin Chris reminded people to “be kind to others please”.

Caroline presenter sadly passed away in February 2020 at the age of 40. She had been dealing with legal issues and was facing an assault charge over an incident with her then boyfriend Lewis Burton.

On Monday, it was announced that the The Metropolitan Police would be launching a reinvestigation into Caroline Flack’s case following complaints from her mother that she was treated differently due to her fame.

Her mother made the initial complaint in March 2020 and enquired about the Met Police’s duty of care for her daughter.

“I just want those answers to make me feel better and to make me know that I’ve done the right thing by Caroline,” she told BBC.
