ITV2 paid a touching tribute to Caroline Flack after their BRITs red carpet coverage show on Tuesday.

Caroline, who died aged 40 on Saturday, had presented the BRITs for ITV2 in 2010 - and the channel paid homage to that.

After the credits rolled for the BRITs show, which saw presenters Clara Amfo and Alice Levine interview the celebs, a black and white photo of Caroline appeared on the screen.

Underneath, it read: 'The BRITs Presenting Team 2010'.
