Love Island host Caroline Flack took her own life aged 40 at her east London home last month. Many of the host’s family and friends paid their respects at her private funeral last week. Now, the presenter’s mum has said there were “memories, smiles but mostly tears” at the service, where 200 people attended.
She said: “There were lots of memories, smiles but mostly tears as we all remembered Carrie and the joy she had brought to all of our lives.
“All the family would like to say thank you so much to all Carrie’s friends who travelled from all over the world to be there that day and who appreciated why we wanted to bring her back home to Norfolk.”
Caroline’s mum said many of her daughter’s showbiz friends were in attendance including stars of Strictly Come Dancing, Love Island, The Great British Bake off as well as “old and new” friends.
She went on to say there were many tributes from her closest friends and “two wonderful live performances by Lucie Jones singing She Used To Be Mine from the Waitress and a song written for Caroline The Sulking Room by her close friend Ciara.”
“The review will look at the general CPS handling of the case and, obviously, the decisions behind charging is part of that,” they added to The Mirror.
Caroline’s mum previously released an unpublished statement from her daughter, who addressed the mystery incident with her boyfriend.
The Love Island host said she was “not a domestic abuser” and said the incident with her boyfriend was “an accident”.
She added: “I have always taken responsibility for what happened that night.
