Coroner: Flack took own life over trial

Caroline Flack took her own life after finding out she was definitely going to be prosecuted for assault, a coroner has concluded.

Coroner Mary Hassell said the Love Island presenter’s alleged assault of boyfriend Lewis Burton “played out in the national press” following her arrest had a serious impact on her mental health.

During the inquest into her death, the star’s mother Christine Flack told the court her daughter “was not an abuser” and accused the police and prosecutors of having it “in for” her due to her “celebrity status”.

Anyone feeling emotionally distressed or suicidal can call Samaritans for help on 116 123 or email jo@samaritans.org in the UK. In the US, call the Samaritans branch in your area or 1 (800) 273-TALK
