Louise Redknapp paid a heartfelt tribute to her friend Caroline Flack after the late star’s funeral earlier today
Her followers shared their condolences and called it a “beautiful pic”.
Other close friends of Caroline shared their thoughts on the emotional day.
Chef Gizzi Erskine wrote how the day had been “surreal, devastating, uplifting, hilarious, warm, nourishing, reassuring, discombobulating.”
Caroline’s boyfriend Lewis Burton called her his “little angel”, saying: “I will love you forever”.
The 27-year-old shared a picture of himself cuddling the late presenter and planting a kiss on her forehead.
Besotted Caroline is seen smiling in the black and white snap, which Lewis released to close friends on the day of her funeral.
The tragic star’s pal, Sam Campbell, screenshot Lewis’ post and shared it to her own Instagram Story.
She added: “Love you Lew” alongside a heart emoji and a tag to Lewis’ social media page.
Caroline took her own life last month, with her closest friends and family at her private funeral today to say their final goodbyes.
She had been due to appear in court this month after being charged with assaulting Lewis in December – charges that she has always denied.
Caroline and Lewis remained a couple in her final months, despite a judge banning him from contacting the Love Island host ahead of her trial.
The TV favourite pleaded not guilty to assault by beating, but found out the day before her death that prosecutors had decided to still move forward with the case.
Days later a picture of Lewis’ small head wound showed he wasn’t the victim of a serious assault.
The tennis player had begged authorities and the CPS not to take the case to court, with Caroline’s management blasting it as a “show trial”.
Stacey Solomon and Amanda Holden are among the stars to have paid tribute to Caroline today, with Stacey vowing to stay off social media as she pays her respects.
Meanwhile, Amanda wore a T-Shirt emblazoned with her face and the hashtag #BeKind.
