Caroline Flack’s heartbroken friends hold tearful vigil for the star after her suicide

DEVASTATED friends of Caroline Flack held a tearful vigil on Saturday night after the news of her death was announced.

Ten of her closest pals including TV producer Mollie Grosberg gathered at 36-year-old stylist Lou Teasdale’s house to say their goodbyes after being given the shocking news.

A source said: “Everyone there was incredibly close to Caroline and is totally heartbroken by her passing.

“They wanted to do something to remember her by and none of them wanted to be alone.

“It was a beautiful evening dedicated to remembering a friend who would always put them first — not matter what she was going through in private.

“Everyone there is hurting but for a little while they were able to find some comfort in each other.

“Caroline’s death came as a shock to them all and no one knows how to deal with it.

“They were able to share their favourite memories of her, talk about her and say goodbye in private knowing they all loved her.”

Host Lou, who used to be One Direction’s stylist, has been close with Caroline for years and Mollie was another close confidante of the TV presenter.

Last Wednesday, three days before Caroline died, she had shared videos on Instagram of them together at a rock climbing centre.

In a tribute posted yesterday, Mollie wrote: “Carrie always had a smile on her face, a naughty laugh and her heart open wide.

“When she let you in, you were the luckiest and she taught me to love everyone and forgive everyone.

“She forgave so easily and loved so hard and I’ll never ever ever stop loving her. Today feels like it’s not real and I wish it wasn’t.

“This girl was a force and always said the right thing, always made me feel safe and looked after even during her own shit. This is the worst pain I’ve ever felt and we all feel it.”

Another friend, Sam Campbell, yesterday revealed Caroline had been on a trip to Barcelona with her last week to escape London.

She wrote: “Last week she tagged along on a work trip to Barcelona with me. Waiting in the hotel while I did meetings.

“She was calm and hopeful, but so weak. I’m so so glad she came and we got to have one more adventure together and a few last laughs. I miss you so much already.”


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.
