Love Island presenter Flack was found dead at the age of 40 at her home in east London after taking her own life.
Last night’s highlights edition of the ITV2 dating show was pulled, and there has been speculation about whether the rest of the series would air. Many people at ITV knew Caroline well and held her in great affection. All of us are absolutely devastated at this tragic news. After careful consultation between Caroline’s representatives and the Love Island production team and given how close we still are to the news of Caroline’s tragic death we have decided not to broadcast tonight’s Love Island out of respect for Caroline’s family. Love Island will return tomorrow night which will include a tribute to Caroline who will be forever in our hearts. pic.twitter.com/gZBCbjzNVl
