Caroline Flack inquest to open on Wednesday after death at weekend

February 18, 2020

The inquest into the death of Caroline Flack is due to open on Wednesday morning in east London.

It will be held at Poplar Coroner's Court, a representative from the court said.

The former Love Island presenter, 40, was found dead at her east London flat on Saturday having taken her own life, her family said.

An inquest must be opened if there is reasonable cause to suspect a death was due to anything other than natural causes.

The opening of an inquest can often be over within minutes and will confirm the identification of the person who has died.


A coroner may also hear brief evidence of how and where the body was found, whether a post-mortem has taken place and the provisional medical cause of death, if it is known.

Friends of the TV star have hit out at social media and the tabloid press for the way she was treated before her death.

Her management has criticised prosecutors for pressing ahead with her "show trial" which was due to start next month.

Flack was charged with assaulting her boyfriend Lewis Burton, 27, last year, despite him saying he did not support the prosecution.

She entered a not guilty plea to the assault charge at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court and was released on bail, with conditions that stopped her having any contact with Burton before the trial.

Francis Ridley, of Money Talent Management, said in a statement: "In recent months Caroline had been under huge pressure because of an ongoing case and potential trial which has been well reported.

"The Crown Prosecution Service pursued this when they knew not only how very vulnerable Caroline was but also that the alleged victim did not support the prosecution and had disputed the CPS version of events.

"The CPS should look at themselves today and how they pursued a show trial that was not only without merit but not in the public interest. And ultimately resulted in significant distress to Caroline."

The CPS, without directly discussing Flack's case, said it does not make the decision to prosecute someone over whether they are guilty or not but over whether they should face a court.
