Stacey Solomon pays tribute to Caroline Flack as she quits social media today to support Joe Swash at her funeral – The Sun

STACEY Solomon has paid tribute to Caroline Flack as she quits social media today to support Joe Swash at her funeral.

The former Love Island presenter, 40, will be laid to rest today three weeks after she took her own life.

Stacey shared a picture of her holding her boyfriend Joe's hand and wrote: "Today it doesn't feel right to be on social media.

"So from me and the boys, we hope you have a good day.

"Hold your loved ones close, give them all of the cuddles you have in you and let them know how much you need them in your life.

"You never know when they really might need to know. Love you all.



YOU'RE NOT ALONE

EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.

It doesn't discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.

It's the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.

And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.

Yet it's rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.

That is why The Sun launched the You're Not Alone campaign.

The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.

Let's all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others.

You're Not Alone.

She then shared the contact details of mental health charities as she encouraged her followers to reach out for help."

On Sunday night, Joe paid tribute to his late friend in his Dancing on Ice finale performance.

The grieving 38-year-old asked for the words "Be Kind" to be written onto a prop for his showdance and went on to win the show.


Caroline died after learning the CPS was pursuing charges that she allegedly attacked her boyfriend Lewis Burton.

She pleaded not guilty to assault by beating, but found out the day before her death that prosecutors had decided to move forward with the case.
