Laura Whitmore has remembered her late friend Caroline Flack on the second anniversary of her death.

The former Love Island presenter was found dead at her London home at the age of 40 in February 2020.

A coroner later said the TV presenter killed herself because she knew she was being prosecuted for the alleged assault of then-boyfriend Lewis Burton and could not face the coverage.

Many of Flack’s friends have paid tribute to her today, two years after her death, with Laura Whitmore leading the memorials.

Taking to Instagram, the Bray native shared a clip of her and Caroline joking about a made up reality show called ‘Cougar Mountain.’

She captioned the post: “This is how I like to think of Flack. Happy and not taking herself too seriously. We hung out a lot that year and I look back at it with such fun memories.

“This day is hard and a reminder that no one knows anyone else’s demons but today I like to think of all the good memories too. Cougar Mountain, what a show that would have been.”

Laura’s husband and Love Island narrator Iain Stirling commented on the post, writing: “She would go on about this bloody show to me every time we were out!”

He paid tribute to Caroline on his own Instagram account by sharing a photo of the duo during a Love Island promo photoshoot.

He said: “Two years ago today. Miss you Caz, x”

And singer Olly Murs, who worked with Caroline on The X Factor, said that her death “hurts every day.”

Sharing a sweet snap of the pair, he wrote: “My favourite photo of us. The hug the smile the laughs I miss it all Caz! Two years ago we lost ya, and it hurts everyday.”
