Caroline Flack died only one day after her boyfriend Lewis Burton claimed his love for her in a smashing Valentine’s Day message.
The former Love Island host, 40, was found dead in her London flat on Saturday, February 15, just weeks before she had to stand trial for Lewis attacking.
She was banned from contacting Lewis after being accused of mistreatment in December and returning to court on March 4.
Tragedy: Caroline Flack died just one day after her boyfriend Lewis Burton claimed his love for her in a smashing Valentine’s Day message
He publicly put her out on Valentine’s Day amid constant speculation that they had ended their relationship, posted a photo on Instagram and wrote: “Happy Valentine’s … Love You.”
The latter comes after Lewis climbed against a wall in the commentary section of a photo of Caroline to joke that she and her boyfriend were “useless.”
Caroline posted her last Instagram photo on Thursday.
The presenter shared her first message on her schedule in two months, in which she saw her dog Ruby flutter.
The collage of snapshots, simply quoted with an emoji with a love heart, was posted hours after her boyfriend contacted her through the photo sharing platform.

Caroline was comfortably dressed in bed while she was dressed in a black bra, confused with her golden locks and her plump pout with a shiny scarlet lipstick.
The former Love Island host was captured in a video posted on Instagram by her friend Mollie Grosberg, showing that she was trying to climb a wall on Wednesday at The Castle Climbing Center in London.
But in a comment now removed, Lewis said, “You are both useless” in addition to an emoji from a love heart, even though Caroline was ordered by a judge not to have communication with him.
Caroline’s girlfriend Mollie had uploaded the video to her profile, titled: “We are professional climbers #healthiswealth.”

Meanwhile, Lewis saw a casual figure when he saw his way to work on Tuesday.
The former professional tennis player, 27, opted for a relaxed look for his outing, and wore a navy blue sleeveless jacket that he combined with a white top and dark gray tracksuit bottoms.
Lewis closed in with a scarf for the icy weather and also wore a navy cap and a pair of white sneakers.
The model held his phone in one hand while trying to remain unobtrusive after the fall of Caroline’s attack.
Ban: Lewis made his first public contact with Caroline since she returned to split rumors – despite being forbidden to contact him after she was charged with assault
Lewis was recently forced to deny claims that he and Caroline had split up and that he had texted another woman after Caroline’s return to the UK from LA.
He said last month: “We are not split. I can’t wait to see you. ”
Caroline placed the same day: “I’m going to speak today … my and my family’s life is no longer suitable for entertainment or gossip,” before she changed her mind.

Still together: Meanwhile, Lewis recently shared this message in the midst of split rumors and wrote that he “can’t wait to see Caroline”
A source told MailOnline at the time: “Caroline wanted to speak because she was so sick of all the rumors and speculations about her.
“But she posted on Instagram without thinking, and once she had time to calm down, she knew better to remain silent until the time was right.”
Caroline is currently on bail after being accused of assault by beating an assault at her North London home with boyfriend Lewis.

District Judge Newton told Caroline that she would be subject to conditional bail, meaning that she should not have contact with Lewis prior to her trial on March 4.
After her last lawsuit in December, Caroline has issued a statement on Instagram that states: “Fortunately, I know that many of you will not believe everything you have heard and read after today’s trial … thank you for your continued support and love …
“It will be a relief if I can give my side of the story, if I may.”
Caroline is accused of attacking Lewis after seeing texts on his phone that make her believe he was cheating on her.
The alleged attack led Lewis, a former professional tennis player and model, to call 999 at 5:25 am, telling the operator, “She was trying to kill me mate.”
In the courtroom it was heard that Lewis “was beaten by Caroline with a lamp while sleeping”.
Lewis got a cut in the head, while Caroline had smashed a glass and had wounds on her left wrist.
Caroline’s boyfriend denies being a “victim” and assisting her throughout the court proceedings, while the couple remained in a romantic relationship.
