She continued to honour her friend on screen.
Holding back tears, she said: ‘The past week has been extremely difficult coming to terms with the loss of our friend and colleague, Caroline. We are thinking of her family and everybody who knew her at this time. Caroline loved Love Island. She loved love, and that’s why tonight’s final is dedicated to her.’
Viewers were then shown a video montage of Caroline’s best bits on the ITV2 dating show, including her infamous slow motion walking as she entered the villa.
Bosses of the show confirmed they were to pay tribute to Caroline Flack in the final, whilst also revealing the remaining eight contestants were told about the tragic news off camera.
A representative for the show said: ‘There will be a dedication to Caroline in tonight’s final episode. The Islanders have been informed about Caroline off camera ahead of the final.’
