Caroline Flack’s mum Christine has admitted she is ‘really sad’ two years on from her daughter’s death, ahead of an upcoming charity festival titled Flackstock created in her honour.
The friends and family of former Love Island presenter Caroline have been trying to keep her spirit alive since she took her own life on February 15, 2020, at the age of 40.
Earlier this year, it was announced a festival called Flackstock was being set up in her memory by those closest to her.
Speaking on Friday’s GMB, her mum, Christine Flack, shared a bit about what fans could expect from the event as she reflected on her daughter’s death after more than two years.
Chatting to Kate Garraway and Adil Ray, her mum called the festival the ‘best way’ to celebrate Caroline.
‘This will be positive, laughing, singing, we’ll probably do quite a bit of crying. Everyone we’ve asked has said yes if they can,’ she added.

And when host Kate asked how she was doing, she was very honest in her response.
Christine told viewers: ‘I just feel really sad and I don’t think that feeling’s going to go.

‘But you get on with things, everybody has to get on with life, but the sadness doesn’t go.’
Caroline’s friend, Natalie Pinkham, appeared alongside Christine, and said the response has been ‘incredible.’
‘The pandemic we didn’t get the chance to do a memorial service. Part of grief is coming together,’ Natalie noted.

The event, to be held on July 25, will celebrate her life with acts from the worlds of comedy, dance and music, and will also raise funds for mental health charities and causes close to her heart.
Singers Natalie Imbruglia, Louise Redknapp and Fleur East were among the first acts to be announced for the festival, which will be held in the grounds of Englefield House, near Pangbourne in Berkshire.
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
