Caroline Flack Who Hosted Love Island Found Dead In London 2020
The Caroline Flack tragedy has affected a lot of people going through a bad time. Everyone needs to know they have something to live for.
Caroline Louise Flack was an English radio and television presenter. She began her career as an actress, starring in Bo’ Selecta! and presented various ITV2 spin-off shows such as I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! NOW! and The Xtra Factor.
Ms. Flack, who was a fixture in the British tabloids, began hosting the show in 2015.
Caroline Flack, a well-known television personality and former host of ITV’s “Love Island” and other shows in Britain, died on Saturday in London. She was 40.
The Associated Press, citing a statement from her family, confirmed her death. A lawyer for the family said she had died by suicide and was found in her home, The A.P. reported.
She was replaced in December after being charged with assault after an episode involving her boyfriend, the tennis star Lewis Burton, The Guardian reported.
“Caroline was a much loved member of the ‘Love Island’ team and our sincere thoughts and condolences are with her family and friends,” ITV, which broadcasts the show, said on Twitter.
Laura Whitmore, who replaced Ms. Flack as the show’s host, said on Twitter that she was “trying to find the words but I can’t.”
Ms. Flack’s management agency and team were not immediately available for comment on Saturday.
In 2014, she won “Strictly Come Dancing” with her dance partner Pasha Kovalev and also hosted several other shows, including “I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here! Now!” and “Xtra Factor,” according to ITV.
Ms. Flack, who had several famous partners including Prince Harry and Harry Styles, is a fixture in the British tabloids. She also had to deal with their incessant prying and constant criticism.
She once told The Sun, “Not everyone is going to like you, so you have to filter it.”
The Sun, which had blanket coverage of the assault allegations against Ms. Flack, called her “Caroline Whack” in a December story.
The tabloid faced online backlash in the aftermath of Ms. Flack’s death as social media users attacked it for its articles about her. At one point, #dontbuythesun and #thescum were both trending on Twitter.
In a 2019 Instagram post, Ms. Flack wrote that she was “in a really weird place” and that she found it hard to talk about it. She said when she reached out to someone to talk about her feelings, they called her “draining.”
“I feel like this is why some people keep their emotions to themselves,” she said. “I certainly hate talking about my feelings. And being a burden is my biggest fear.”
Ms. Flack said she was “lucky” to be able to pick herself up, adding “but what happens if someone can’t.”
“Be nice to people,” she continued. “You never know what’s going on. Ever.”
While “Love Island” is a wildly popular show in Britain, it has raised issues about mental health.
