Caroline Flack’s boyfriend Lewis Burton shares new holiday pic with TV presenter

HEARTBROKEN

CAROLINE Flack's grieving boyfriend has shared an unseen picture of them laughing together on holiday.

The 27-year-old leans on Caroline's shoulder in the touching photograph as they smile for a selfie in the sunshine.

He didn't add a message, but simply included a heart-broken emoji.

Lewis wrote an emotional tribute to his late girlfriend on Sunday, saying he was "in so much pain" after she took her own life.

He had been banned by a court from contacting her as the Love Island presenter faced trial for allegedly assaulting him.

Caroline's devastated mum Chris today released her daughter's unpublished Instagram post, which showed she was "not blaming anyone or pointing any fingers" before her death.


YOU'RE NOT ALONE

EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.

It doesn't discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society - from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.

It's the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.

And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.

Yet it's rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.

That is why The Sun launched the You're Not Alone campaign.

The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.

Let's all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others... You're Not Alone.

She said the 40-year-old was "surrounded by love" - but the CPS decision to push on with assault charges was "too much for her".

Caroline's unseen social media post described how she felt her "whole world and future was swept from under her feet" after being charged with assault.

Chris said: "Carrie sent me this message at the end of January but was told not to post it by advisers but she so wanted to have her little voice heard.

"So many untruths were out there but this is how she felt and my family and I would like people to read her own words.

"Carrie was surrounded by love and friends but this was just too much for her."

Caroline's death came hours after she was told prosecutors would be pushing ahead with an assault trial - despite boyfriend Lewis' requests to drop the case.
