On the day of Caroline Flack’s private funeral, Keith Lemon has paid sweet tribute to his friend with quite the brilliant memory.
Yesterday the former Love Island host’s funeral was held, three weeks after she was found dead at the age of 40 in her east London flat.
Before and after the private service, which was held by Caroline’s family for her close relatives and friends, a number of celebrity friends posted photos and memories of the star to social media.
Keith and Caroline worked together on the comedian’s show Bo’ Selecta, as Caroline (who played Bubbles) was making her rise to fame in 2002.
Sharing an image of them on set in their costumes, with Caroline larking about in a Christmas-themed dress and white boots, Keith, dressed as Michael Jackson, said that what made it easier to deal with Caroline’s death was that it was still so unbelievable.
He wrote on Instagram: ‘Cha’mone bubbles? Old times, fun times right from the beginning.

Since Caroline’s death Keith has been helping raise money for mental health charity Samaritans, having designed a shirt which features a black and white picture of Caroline taken by photographer Rachell Smith for a Cosmopolitan cover shoot, and the words ‘be kind!’, a slogan she has become known for since she died.
Following her death, Keith revealed his plans to honour her life through a festival, as well as his plans to help others deal with mental health issues.
He posted on Instagram: ‘So someone on twitter said wouldn’t it be great to do a festival for Flack. Which I thought was a great idea.
‘I don’t know how it would work or what I could do? But then I thought what can I do? Well ya know I do t-shirts? I do t-shirts.
‘I thought the least I can do is draw her a t-shirt where all the proceeds go to mental health. So I’ve done this. I’ll let you know when a where you can get one as soon as it’s available. #bekind’.
