'I'm trying to find the words but I can't': Laura Whitmore has paid tribute to Caroline Flack

"I'm trying to find the words but I can't."

Laura Whitmore has paid tribute to former Love Island presenter Caroline Flack.

Caroline's family confirmed on Saturday that the presenter had passed away, aged 40.

"I'm trying to find the words but I can't," Laura told her followers, as she posted a throwback photo of herself with Caroline. She also shared a poem.


It read:

To lose someone so special

Is really hard to bear

It hardly seems believable

That you're no longer there.

You left us far too early

before your time, it seems

and now  you'll never have the chance

to fulfil all those dreams.

However hard it is though

we'll take comfort in the thought

of all the memories we have

and the happiness you brought.

You always lived life to the full

but ours won't be the same

until the day when we can see

your smiling face again.

An ITV spokeswoman also paid tribute to Caroline on behalf of the network and the Love Island team.

"Everybody at Love Island and ITV is shocked and saddened by this desperately sad news," she said. "Caroline was a much loved member of the Love Island team and our sincere thoughts and condolences are with her family and friends."

Caroline's rose to fame in 2002 when she starred in Bo’ Selecta!. She has since presented shows like I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! NOW! and The Xtra Factor. 

She presented Love Island from 2015 until 2019.
