MONTANA Brown fears that Caroline Flack “won’t be the last” Love Island star to take their own life in an emotional new interview.
The 24-year-old star shot to fame on the 2017 series of the show, and was left devastated by the bubbly former host’s death earlier this month.
Montana has now confessed that she feels “helpless” as she revealed that all of her friends who have appeared on the ITV2 dating show now suffer from anxiety and depression.
The brunette beauty shared: “I just hope it doesn’t happen to anyone else, but I don’t think Caroline will be the last person to do this if I’m honest and that is what’s really sad.
“For me, and I think I can speak for a lot of Love Islanders, you feel like: ‘Oh my God, who else is unhappy? I need to speak to everyone.’
“You feel this pressure because you don’t want your friends to be unhappy, what can I do?”
She added to MailOnline: “It’s helplessness because you know people are suffering and that’s a categorical fact.
“Every single person that I’m friends with from Love Island suffers from anxiety or depression or something to do with mental health. It’s actually terrifying.”
Montana’s Love Island co-star Mike Thalassitis took his own life in March last year, with Caroline attending the funeral alongside her.
Montana was left heartbroken by his death, and broke down on This Morning in an interview shortly after his passing.
Sophie Gradon also took her own life in June 2018, after finding fame on the 2016 series of the show.
Caroline’s devastated family announced the tragic news of her passing on the evening of 15th February, saying in a statement: “We can confirm that our Caroline passed away today on the 15th February.
“We would ask that the press both respect the privacy of the family at this difficult time.”
The TV presenter was due in court next month for assaulting boyfriend Lewis Burton, having always insisted her innocence.
She took her own life just hours after she was told that the CPS were pushing ahead with the trial – despite Lewis’ pleas to drop the case.
Having become the host of Love Island in 2015 when ITV2 revived the show, she stepped down from presenting duties in December having been charged with assault.
Her close friend, Laura Whitmore, was drafted in as her replacement for the winter series of the show.
