Many friends and colleagues of Caroline Flack have been paying tribute to her on the anniversary of her tragic death.

The Love Island presenter died from suicide a year ago, and many fans and friends view her legacy as the message #bekind.

Those paying tribute included Lewis Burton, who was in a relationship with her at the time of her death.

He posted a photo of him and Flack captioned: "I will never forget you."

The tribute, which appeared in the former tennis player's Instagram Stories, followed a video of a photo album he'd made with new love Lottie Tomlinson.

Rita Ora also remembered the presenter, posting a photo of them together on Instagram and writing: "Angel among us."

Flack's friend Laura Whitmore, who replaced he on Love Island, also posted a tribute.

Her husband Iain Stirling, who worked with Flack on the reality dating show as the narrator, shared some photos of his memories with the late star and wrote: "To my friend Caroline, thinking of you today. Miss you mate x"

Flack's ex fiance Andrew Brady wrote a long, heartfelt open letter in tribute to her, saying that she had "a beautiful soul, a perfect smile, a contagious laugh, an interesting story and she had an incredibly complex mind."

Love Island, the show that Flack was most famous for, posted its own tribute.

She had visited South Africa with the programme shortly before her death as the winter series was about to begin production.

Flack died the day after hearing that the Crown Prosecution Service would be going ahead with a trial for her alleged attack of Burton at her home in December 2019.

In the final weeks of her life, Flack urged her followers to "be kind" to others, and following her death the phrase became popular as a hashtag on social media.
