On Thursday, Olly – who has been battling boredom during lockdown – took to Instagram to share a compilation video of their entrances on to the ITV competition show.

“Oh my god these Entrances,” he wrote, “just sat in bed this morning watching old clips.. wow I remember this was our favourite part of the show every week and it just made me laugh so much & smile Caz!”

“Thinking of ya,” he concluded.

Caroline died on 15 February, a day after she learned that the CPS was pursuing charges that she allegedly attacked her boyfriend Lewis Burton, 27, with a lamp.
