Laura Whitmore Pays Tribute To Late Friend Caroline Flack With Song Played At Her Funeral

Laura Whitmore paid tribute to Caroline Flack on Sunday during her Radio 5 Live show.

Today marks the one year anniversary since Caroline, 40, sadly passed away.

Laura, who took over Love Island hosting duties from Caroline Flack for the 2020 winter series, spoke about her late friend before playing a special acoustic cover version of Caroline's favourite song, 'The Glory of Love' performed by Imelda May.



"It doesn't get any easier to comprehend and sometimes when you can't think of the right words to say, a song can be more appropriate," she said.

"It will be a difficult time but I hope a chance to celebrate her memory and this song, to those who knew Caroline very well, is very special.

"Her family played it at her funeral last year and a very good musician and friend of the show, Imelda May, has kindly recorded a version just for us."

Laura also took to Instagram and posted lyrics from the song, "You've got to laugh a little, cry a little, until the clouds roll by a little".


Iain Stirling, who worked alongside Caroline on Love Island and who is married to Laura shared a lovely tribute on Instagram.

He posted two cute pictures of the pair with the caption: "To my friend Caroline, thinking of you today. Miss you mate x."


Lewis Burton, Caroline's ex-boyfriend, paid tribute on his Instagram Stories, Lewis shared an image of him and Caroline, captioned: "1 year, I will never forget you" alongside a broken heart emoji.

At the time of her death, Caroline was dating Lewis, 28, but was unable to see him due to legal proceedings. The Love Island presenter was due to appear in court, charged with allegedly assaulting Lewis - something both parties denied.


Lewis did not want to press charges but the trial was due to go ahead. On 15th February last year, Caroline was found dead at her flat in London, with her death ruled as suicide.
