On her Instagram stories, Laura Whitmore posted a photo of herself with Caroline and wrote: “Still always expect to see you on a night out. Will never get my head around not seeing you again.”

In her tribute, Dawn O’Porter recalled the moment she learned her friend had passed away.

“At this exact time three years ago I got the call,” she wrote. ” A switch turned off that would never go back on. A laugh that took up so much space went quiet. The sound of tiny feet faded away. Burgers and red wine felt sad. Karaoke was pointless. All the things that felt good, felt wrong. The world went mad.”

She continued: “Joy has made a comeback now, in a different way. We work harder to create it. We can celebrate her greatness along with our sadness. We’re all doing our very best. But still all I want in the whole wide world is for my phone to flash with a message from ‘Flackster’ saying ‘none of that was real’. Miss her loads every single day and always will forever and ever and ever. Sending love to all who loved her.”

Caroline’s mum Christine also spoke about her daughter’s legacy in an interview with the Eastern Daily Press.

She told the publication that it’s clear Caroline’s life “touched so many lives”.

Christine also spoke about how difficult this time of year is.

“Every year around Christmas and then Valentine’s Day all I can think about is Carrie,” she said. “Because it happened so soon after Christmas, it becomes a constant reminder.”
