Caroline Flack‘s boyfriend Lewis Burton is paying tribute to her one month after her passing.

As you’ll recall, the TV presenter stepped down from Love Island after being charged with assault in December 2019 following an alleged incident involving Burton.

Along with two images of the pair together, he penned on Sunday via Instagram:

“It’s already been a month I love and miss you so much, I never thought that one day I will never be able to see or speak to you again ?
I wake up and think you’re going to be laying next to me or you’re going to call me in a minute. It just doesn’t seem real. I wish I could give you a kiss and a cuddle and say everything is going to be ok. I am so grateful I met you I just want to make you proud. X”

Last Tuesday, the former Love Island presenter was laid to rest near her childhood home in Norfolk, England. Her mother Christine Flack told the Eastern Daily Press about her funeral, where over 200 mourners attended including many colleagues from the TV shows she took part in:

“We all remembered Carrie and the joy she had brought to all of our lives.”

She continued:

“There were lots of memories, smiles but mostly tears. All the family would like to say thank you so much to all Carrie’s friends who traveled from all over the world to be there that day and who appreciated why we wanted to bring her back home to Norfolk. Her friends from schooldays, college days and present day also gathered to exchange stories and pay tributes to my beautiful girl.”

Sounds like it was a very special occasion to celebrate Caroline’s life. Her mother added:

“There were tributes from family members, her closest friends and two wonderful live performances by Lucie Jones singing ‘She Used To Be Mine’ from the Waitress and a song written for Caroline ‘The Sulking Room’ by her close friend Ciara.”

Aside from thanking Caroline’s family and friends, Chris also thanked the mortician:

“They looked after Carrie for me and were the greatest comfort every day to my family.”

And also expressed her gratitude toward the media for respecting the family’s privacy on the day of the service:

“All online activity was stopped for the day with no phones seen anywhere at the service or the wake. No photos have been posted of that day by anyone actually at the wake and I thank everyone for respecting the family’s wishes.”

It was ruled during the autopsy after her death that Flack died by suicide. The coroner is awaiting toxicology test results and is expected to deliver a ruling in August.

If you or someone you know is considering suicide, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
