The post was quickly loved by thousands of Janette’s followers, with Caroline’s friend Lewis as a striking addition.
Caroline committed suicide after a worried friend who was staying with her went to the shops and left the former Love Island presenter alone in her London apartment.
It only came a few hours after she was told that she would be tried for alleged abuse of her friend Lewis – a claim she denied.
Her management hit the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) for pursuing the “show trial” after former tennis player Lewis, 27, said he did not want to file a complaint.
The former athlete claimed that she hit him with a light in her former home in Islington in December before asking the CPS not to file a complaint.

Caroline was described by friends as the feeling “she was alone” and “could not see a way out,” according to The mirror. It was also understood that she was struggling with her mental health prior to her death and taking antidepressants.
The death of the TV presenter was confirmed by a family lawyer. The Flack family said in a statement: “We can confirm that our Caroline died today on 15 February. We ask the press to respect the privacy of the family in this difficult time. ”
Since the news about Caroline’s death, celebrities and fans have paid tribute to the star, while ITV broadcast an emotional tribute to Caroline during the episode of Love Island on Monday night.
The show was canceled at the weekend, but returned with Love Island voice-over Iain Stirling who shared a statement in honor of Caroline, with whom he had worked closely in recent years.
“Caroline and I, we were together from the beginning of Love Island, and her passion, warmth and infectious enthusiasm were a crucial part of what brought the show in contact with millions of viewers,” he said.
“Like many of you, we are all now trying to come to terms with what has happened. My only hope is that we can all try to be friendlier, always show love and listen to each other.
‘Caroline, I want to thank you for all the great times we had in making our favorite show. You were a true friend to me. I’m going to miss you Caz. ”
