'Love Island' Star Laura Anderson Gets A Tattoo Tribute To Caroline Flack

Love Island star Laura Anderson has paid tribute to the late Caroline Flack by getting a tattoo with the words 'be kind'.

The 30-year-old, who was a contestant on the 2018 series of the show, has been praised for the inking, after taking to her Instagram to show followers.

"It's not until now this has become 'fashionable' All I've ever wanted is to be kind," wrote Laura.

"This is for you Caroline... and the rest of the human race... #bekind."

The tattoo - inked onto Laura's right wrist - also features a blue butterfly.

Laura, who was a contestant on Love Island while Caroline was host, had previously paid tribute to the TV presenter, who sadly took her own life on Saturday 15th February.

Following her death, Laura wrote on Instagram: "What a cruel world we live in. So much I want to say in anger & frustration however the priority lies with respecting Caroline's family at this time.

"The fact that we're all sat here tonight with such devastating news all too close to home is just too much and too soon.

"Caroline will always be a beautiful, funny, talented and unique woman with a lot of passion and heart for all that she did. I can't believe you're no longer here.

"You were and always will be loved by so many and I'm so sorry this life didn't give you the support that you needed. I hope we all learn something from this tragedy."

Caroline was found dead at her east London home on Saturday 15th February.

The TV presenter was due to appear in court after being charged with allegedly assaulting her boyfriend, Lewis Burton - something both parties have since denied.

Lewis, 27, and Caroline, were banned from speaking to one another ahead of her trial.

Lewis did not want to press charges but the trial was set to go ahead regardless. He had recently spoken out in defence of Caroline, saying he was "tired of the lies and abuse" aimed at her.

Earlier this month, Caroline's family released an unpublished Instagram statement that the TV presenter wrote days before she took her own life.

And last week, during the Love Island final, the TV show paid tribute to the presenter with a touching and moving montage of Caroline hosting the ITV programme.
