Caroline Flack, the host of the British version of Love Island, has died at the age of 40. Flack, who has been a presenter on UK television since 2002, was found dead at her home in London, according to multiple reports on Saturday.
Her family confirmed her death in a Press Association statement. They said: “We can confirm that our Caroline passed away today on the 15th of February. We would ask that the press both respect the privacy of the family at this difficult time.”Flack was due to go on trial on March 4 for allegedly assaulting her boyfriend during an incident at her London home on December 12. She denied the charge.
The allegations resulted in her stepping down as the host of ITV2’s Love Island for the winter season this year. She was replaced by Laura Whitmore, but ITV made clear that the door was open for her return.
