Caroline Flack’s mum reveals her cash will go to charitable causes and she didn’t have a will

RELATIVES of Caroline Flack will give part of her £827,000 fortune to charity — after the star did not leave a will.

Her family last night said the donation will ensure that her legacy lives on.
Love Island host Caroline tragically took her own life in February, aged just 40.

Official probate figures yesterday revealed the value of her estate. Her mum Christine pledged: “We will use the money wisely to help good causes that Caroline was passionate about.”

Friends confirmed the cash will be distributed to charities closest to the TV star’s heart.

By law, anyone who dies without making a will in England and Wales is declared intestate.

Because Caroline is survived by her parents, her estate is shared equally between them.

High Court records show Christine is the legally appointed administrator. The total value of Caroline’s estate was put at just over £2million.

But the sum drops to £827,691 after debts and death duties are taken into account.

The popular presenter was found dead at home in Stoke Newington, North London, on February 15.

More than 200 people attended a private funeral near her family home in Norfolk a month later.

At the time, Christine said: “There were lots of memories, smiles but mostly tears as we all remembered Carrie and the joy she had brought to all of our lives.”

She also thanked Caroline’s “old pals” from her impressive list of famous shows — I’m A Celeb, Xtra Factor, Strictly, Bake Off and Love Island, which she hosted for five years.

Stars and family plan a two-day Climb for Caroline hike in the Lake District in February to raise funds for the Samaritans.

You’re Not Alone

EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.

It doesn't discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.

It's the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.

And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.

Yet it's rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.

That is why The Sun launched the You're Not Alone campaign.

The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.

Let's all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others… You're Not Alone.
