Louise Redknapp pays tribute to close friend Caroline Flack with moving throwback photo of late star

LOUISE Redknapp has paid tribute to close friend Caroline Flack with a moving throwback photo.

The 45-year-old star showed that Caroline, who took her own life earlier this year, is still in her thoughts almost five months after her tragic death.

Louise had been tagged in a separate photo that featured Mel B by Keith Lemon, with the comic writing: "Back when the world was a bit more normal".

Louise reposted the snap to her Instagram Story before adding a second photo taken on the same night, this time featuring Caroline.

In the throwback, Caroline is smiling coyly at the camera, with Louise stood next to her pal.

Keith and their pal Claire Denby are also in the photo.

She captioned the post: "I miss you.

"Always in my heart."

Keith shared the same photo to his social media page, reflecting: "Last time I saw Flack x".


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.

Caroline and Louise became close when Louise split from her husband Jamie in 2017 after 19 years together.

Shortly after Caroline's death on 15 February this year, Louise penned a lengthy open letter to the bubbly Love Island presenter.

It began: "Caroline when things were tough for me and you were going through equally such a tough time you reached out to me and it was so nice to have someone that had been there and been through the same emotions and feelings as me even though different circumstances.

"I always think it takes a certain soul to be able to reach out to someone who they don’t really know that well and speak from the heart but you did that for me and from that moment a close friendship was founded."
