Paddy McGuinness pays tribute to Caroline Flack on BBC's Sport Relief

Paddy McGuinness took a moment during BBC’s Sport Relief to pay a tribute to the late Caroline Flack.

As a photo of the former Love Island host appeared on the screen behind him, Paddy began: ‘Recently we lost a much-loved member of the Sport Relief family.

‘Caroline Flack was always a huge and very active supporter of everything this charity does and she gave so much of her time and talent to help others and she’ll be greatly missed.’

He added: ‘We send all our love to her family.’

Caroline was laid to rest earlier this week in a private funeral three weeks after her death.

The star died by suicide on 15 February, aged 40.

Gary Linekar, Paddy, Alex Scott, Emma Willis, Rylan Clark-Neal, Oti Mabuse and Tom Allen have all come together to host the BBC extravaganza tonight, which raises funds for good causes both in the UK and overseas.

Highlights of Friday night’s show included two teams of celebrities leaving it all on the dance floor in a bid to be crowned The Greatest Dancer and the rebirth of Killing Eve as Killing Steves, for a one-off Sport Relief spoof.

The Battle of the Channels Celebrity Boat Race also returned.

In another sporting feat, Romesh Ranganathan took on tennis legend Andy Murray in a crazy game of crazy golf.

Sport Relief can be viewed on BBC iPlayer.
