Never-before-seen pictures of former Love Island presenter Caroline Flack have been released to mark the second anniversary of her passing.
Caroline tragically took her own life on 15 February 2020, leaving both her fans, family and friends heartbroken.
With today marking the second anniversary of her death, acclaimed artists The Connor Brothers have released stunning portraits of the late 40 year old which were taken just months before her passing. Caroline had commissioned the photos herself.
One photograph in particular is being sold to raise money for leading suicide prevention charity CALM and NGO CHOOSE LOVE, who Caroline had supported.
Caroline’s family are said to have given their blessing for the photographs to be released and sold to raise money.
In one of the photos, Caroline was beaming as she looked over her shoulder at the camera while she wore her blonde locks in loose waves. She could be seen wearing a black jacket with fur detailing.
Another snap showed the presenter sitting on a sofa looking down solemnly as she held a cocktail glass.
Discussing the beautiful pictures, The Connors Brothers toldThe Mirror: “Just over two years ago Caroline Flack came to our studio to be photographed for a portrait she wanted to commission.
“She was a joy to work with, and her playful personality and appetite for life were infectious. Like everyone else, we were entirely unaware at the time that this would be Caroline's last photoshoot.”

They added: "Although we only met Caroline once, she left a big impression on us with her warmth and humour, and we were devastated by the news of her untimely death."
A special print that’s incorporated into the limited edition prints shows one side of Caroline’s face with the quote “In a world where you can be anything be kind” written across it, a quote famously used by the late TV star just months before her death.
Jody Flack, Caroline’s twin sister, has since opened up about the photos and described them as being “powerful”.
She said: “Caroline loved shooting with the Connor Brothers.
"I'm so pleased they have created such a powerful image from the shoot, and even more pleased that it’s for two really great charities.”
"The whole thing really captures her spirit and she would have loved it.” she added.
