Lewis Burton, the boyfriend of TV presenter Caroline Flack, who was found dead at her home on Saturday, has said he is heartbroken by her death.
Flack, 40, was due to go on trial on 4 March for assaulting Lewis Burton, a prosecution he did not support. She had been forbidden by a judge from communicating with him before the trial.
The former host of ITV2’s Love Island is reported to have been discovered at her home in east London on Saturday. A lawyer for her family said she had taken her own life.
“My heart is broken, we had something so special,” Burton wrote on Instagram on Sunday morning. “I am so lost for words. I am in so much pain. I miss you so much. I know you felt safe with me. You always said ‘I don’t think about anything else when I am with you’ and I was not allowed to be there this time. I kept asking and asking.
