Love Island’s Belle Hassan shares heartbreaking fact about tragic Caroline Flack
Love Island star Belle Hassan has shared details of the warm and outgoing nature of late television presenter Caroline Flack’s personality – and says she and other Islanders have been heartbroken by her suicide.
The 21-year-old reality star says she and the fellow 2019 contestants had an instant close bond with Caroline – who died aged 40 after taking her own life on 15 February.
Speaking to The Sun on Sunday, Belle said Caroline’s decision to take her own life is all the more tragic as she only ever saw the TV star exude compassion and affection for those around her.
Belle says Caroline made all the other contestants feel good about themselves, and was always on hand to provide a shoulder to cry on during Love Island break ups and evictions.
“Caroline was such a fun character and always seemed so happy. She was an amazing person and had such energy,” Belle told the publication.
“When she came into the villa she was there for us, a shoulder to cry on, a helping hand and an ear to listen to us,” she went on.
“Between takes she would go out of her way to compliment people. She would say she liked their dresses and tell the boys, ‘Oh, you look so handsome’,” Bell added.
The memory of Caroline as caring and outgoing has left her shock death all the more difficult to deal with.
“She was such a loved person and we all loved her. To think she felt so low that she saw no way out is just heartbreaking,” Belle said.
Fans of Caroline were left shocked and devastated last weekend when it was revealed she had been found dead at her new home after taking her own life at the age of 40.
The Crown Prosecution Service decided to press ahead with her impending trial despite her boyfriend Lewis Burton, 27, publicly declaring Caroline’s innocence.
Following her tragic death, Flack's management team described her as 'vulnerable' and criticised the Crown Prosecution Service for pushing ahead with the case.
