Caroline Flack’s mother says it hurts to see false pals grieve on TV

Caroline Flack’s mother spoke out against celebs who were not close to their daughter and who publicly mourned her as if they were.

The Love Island presenter committed suicide in February 2020 at the age of 40.

Her mother, Christine Flack, said she “feels really hurt” and expects this Christmas to be challenging.

She told The Sun newspaper, “It’s been worse this year because it got real.”

She added, “It’s hard. I saw someone on TV this week who called her a friend and it really hurt.

“When a death is in the media, you can’t just mourn quietly. There are a lot of grieving people who they don’t know personally, so you take care of them and all of their friends. “

Caroline’s mother and twin sister, Jody, helped produce the documentary Caroline Flack: Their Life and Death for Channel 4 earlier this year.

The documentary tells the story of her life and death as well as her psychological problems.

Christine Flack said, “There was so much going on last year, everyone was talking, and this documentary really helped.”

Before her release, her mother spoke out against social media companies for failing to protect her daughter from abuse on their platforms.

Caroline, best known for her television work on shows like Love Island and The X Factor, was found dead on February 15, 2020 at her home in Stoke Newington, northeast London.

A coroner ruled she committed suicide after learning that prosecutors would be bringing assault charges over an incident with her boyfriend Lewis Burton.

The death of the TV star caused great sorrow among celebrity friends, colleagues and fans.
