Caroline Flack’s boyfriend Lewis Burton, 27, took to social media this afternoon to pay tribute to the Love Island star, days after her death.
The former tennis player posted an unseen picture of the couple on his Instagram account as her cause of death was confirmed today.
Caroline’s death was confirmed as suicide by hanging, an inquest in London has disclosed.
In the social media picture, which was shared with Lewis’ 210,000 Instagram followers, the smiling couple could be seen in a cosy embrace while on holiday.
He captioned the post with a broken heart emoji.
Caroline died on February 15, at the age of 40.
A lawyer for her family confirmed the news.
The presenter hit the headlines in December after she was arrested and charged over an incident with her boyfriend Lewis.
Caroline pleaded not guilty to assault at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court on December 23.
The ITV star had been due to go on trial on March 4, despite her boyfriend withdrawing his complaint.
Three days ago, a heart broken Lewis paid tribute to Caroline on Instagram.
