February 15th marks the two-year anniversary of Caroline Flack's tragic death.
The popular presenter was just 40 years old when she was found dead at home, after she learned she was going to be prosecuted for allegedly assaulting her partner Lewis Burton.
A coroner has since declared that Flack had an ongoing battle with “fluctuating mental health”, that had been fuelled by the pressures of being in the public eye.
Flack had withdrawn from the showbiz circuit in the weeks before her death, having been dropped as the host from the upcoming ‘Winter Love Island’ series following the upcoming assault case.
However, in her final full-length post on Instagram before her death, she wrote an emotional statement about her wellbeing.
“Been advised not to go on social media... but I wanted to say happy Christmas to everyone who has been so incredibly kind to me this year,” she wrote. “This kind of scrutiny and speculation is a lot to take on for one person to take on their own... I’m a human being at the end of the day and I’m not going to be silenced when I have a story to tell and a life to keep going with…”
She continued: “I’m taking some time out to get feeling better and learn some lessons from situations I’ve got myself into to.
“I have nothing but love to give and best wishes for everyone.”
Her final picture was with her French bulldog, and was simply accompanied with a love heart.
It was announced earlier this week that the Metropolitan Police are set to reinvestigate their handling of Caroline Flack's arrest after her mother, Christine, complained about the star's treatment by the force.
Christine Flack said her daughter was treated differently by law enforcers due to her level of fame.
Now, a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police has told the BBC that the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) has urged the force to reinvestigate due to Christine’s complaint.
The MPS spokesperson said: "Following a review, the IOPC agreed with the MPS that service was acceptable in relation to seven areas of the complaints relating to the response and handling of the incident by the MPS.
"The IOPC has directed the MPS to reinvestigate one element of the complaints. This relates to the process involved in appealing the CPS decision to caution Ms Flack.
"We will re-examine this element of the investigative process. Our thoughts and sympathies remain with Caroline's family."
