Caroline Flack received an assault charge in 2020 – something the Met Police have issued an apology to her family for now.
The former Love Island host was facing prosecution for allegedly assaulting her boyfriend when she took her own life in 2020.

Back in 2020, Caroline was facing prosecution for allegedly beating her boyfriend, Lewis Burton.
Following the incident, which took place in December 2019, the Crown Prosecution Service recommended Caroline receive a caution.
However, the Met Police appealed this.
Due to this appeal, the Strictly star was instead charged with assault by beating.
However, in February 2020, Caroline sadly passed away after taking her own life.
At the inquest into her death, a coroner ruled that the star had taken her own life after she’d learned that prosecutors were pressing ahead with the assault charge.

A spokesperson for the Met said that the force ordered to apologise to Caroline‘s family following a review.
The Independent Office for Police Conduct found that there was not a “record of rationale” for the Met to appeal against the CPS decision.

“We have done so and acknowledged the impact that this has had on them,” the Met spokesperson said.

Prince Harry makes sad confession about Caroline
The latest news about Caroline comes not long after Harry made a confession about the star in his book, Spare.
The Duke of Sussex met Caroline back in 2009.
Writing in his book, he said: “That set off a frenzy. In a matter of hours, a horde of journalists was camped outside Flack’s parents’ house, her friends’ houses, and her grandmother’s house…
“We kept seeing each other from time to time but we never felt free again. We kept going, I think, because we had a good time together and because we didn’t want to admit defeat at the hands of those imbeciles,” he continued.
“But the relationship was tainted, irredeemably, and in the end we decided it wasn’t worth continuing to endure that level of exhaustion and harassment. Above all, for her family. We said goodbye. Goodbye, and good luck,” he added.
