Olly Murs leads stars paying tribute to late Caroline Flack on her 42nd birthday

Olly Murs has led the birthday tributes to Caroline Flack on what would have been her 42nd birthday.

Former Love Island host Caroline tragically took her own life at the age of 40 in February 2020.

And X Factor star Olly, who completed a charity mountain trek and named a mountain peak after the late star in June, took to his Instagram on Tuesday morning with a sweet clip of them doing karaoke.

"Wish I had the full video of this makes me smile every time, love how much you loved singing more than me! Think of ya everyday happy birthday caz!" the singer captioned the clip.


The likes of Pixie Lott, James Arthur and fitness trainer Bradley Simmonds left red heart emojis in the comments section as they remembered Caroline.

On her own page, Dawn O'Porter shared a candid red carpet image of Caroline with the caption: "Happy birthday you plum."

Caroline's former Love Island colleague Iain Stirling shared a snap of them posing together, with the caption: "Happy Birthday Caroline x."

Iain's girlfriend Laura Whitmore showed her support in the comments, as did Chloe Crowhurst and Josh Ritchie.

Celebrity Juice star Keith Lemon shared a drawing of Caroline with the words: "Be Kind".

"Appy birfday Flack! Miss you x" Keith wrote in the caption.

Fearne Cotton, Kerry Katona, Denise van Outen, Gaby Roslin left red heart emojis in the comments.

Caroline tragically died the day after she found out that the Crown Prosecution Service would send her to trial for allegedly assaulting her boyfriend Lewis Burton in December 2019.

In September, Caroline's mum Christine fought back the tears as she presented the Mental Health Hero award at The Sun's Who Cares Wins awards ceremony.

Christine welled up as she mentioned her daughter's name, saying: "The winner of the mental health award in memory of my daughter Carrie, is Charmaine George."

Charmaine lost her 18 year old son to a suspected suicide in May 2020, and Christine added: "I'd just like to say, how she did what she did, well some mornings it's just hard to get up and carry on.

"To do what she did is wonderful, and she deserves this."
