The tortured last weeks of Caroline Flack Inquest into Caroline Flack's death Caroline Flack's family have released an unpublished Instagram post she wrote before she died in which she says the domestic incident involving her boyfriend Lewis Burton was an accident. The note - which Flack was advised not to post - said: "Within 24 hours my whole world and future was swept from under my feet and all the walls that I had taken so long to build around me, collapsed. I am suddenly on a different kind of stage and everyone is watching it happen." The television presenter stepped down from presenting ITV's Love Island after an alleged assault on Mr Burton, to which she pleaded not guilty in December. Flack's note went on to say: "I have always taken responsibility for what happened that night. Even on the night. But the truth is .... It was an accident." She said she had been having "some sort of emotional breakdown for a very long time". The presenter - who was found dead in her London home four days ago - said pictures from the scene of the incident featured her own blood and were sold to a newspaper, although she did not say who was responsible for leaking the images. Flack, who grew up in Norfolk, closed the post with an apology to her family and friends.
