  • The 41-year-old is still coming to terms with losing one of her good friends and wants people to stop oversharing something which was sent to them in private.

    The star took to Twitter to express her distaste at such ‘Can we all just agree that posting Caroline’s personal texts is a massive betrayal?’

    She continued, ‘Please consider that if for some reason you are thinking of doing it. She’d absolutely hate it.’

    Following Caroline’s death Dawn said she was “broken”.

    And she’s since spoken out to put an end to the sharing after several celebrities posted private messages and DMs on social media following news of Caroline’s death on February 15.

    Who has been sharing messages sent by Caroline Flack?

    Kerry Katona and Paddy McGuinness were among the celebrities who divulged their messages and last week Piers Morgan shared a private message the former Love Island host sent to him, in which she claimed she was “struggling” with “hate” aimed at her by Jameela Jamil.

    And ex boyfriend Danny Cipriani shared some messages she’d sent him. He wrote on Instagram, ‘This story is about the beauty she found in a situation I found uncomfortable. “I’m just talking to black dot” she would say. She was kind beyond belief. And she would think I am crazy doing all this. But I know she would be proud,’ and vowed to share the voice note she left him in the days before her death.

    Black dot. Before i start. This is my grieving process. Which is talking. A lot. Which my friends and family and teammates have had to take this last 10 days because I’m grieving. And I’m grieving hard. Hence I’m talking a lot. I’m not sure I’d be strong enough if I didn’t understand or see myself in her. Pain is pain. It doesn’t matter if you’ve lost a cat. Or been called a name. No ones pain is worse or less. Because it is individual to them and how they take it. So… Black dot. If you judge the first pic you see a black dot. But i didn’t really know what she meant when she called me black dot. Until her best friend told me on Sunday last week. ‘She used to call you black dot, now i know, your WhatsApp pic is a black dot’ – so i changed my WhatsApp pic to a black dot about 5 months ago because i felt there were people who had my number who i couldn’t trust. Ultimately i would have let them into my life. So ultimately i would have to ask myself why. Anyway. This story is about the beauty she found in a situation i found uncomfortable. ‘I’m just talking to black dot’ she would say. She was kind beyond belief. And she would think i am crazy doing all this. But i know she would be proud. I’m taking lent off social media. Thank you all for the kind messages. And all the lovely response. Thank you for the bad response. It’s my story. And i did it for me. Then her – she wasn’t allowed to talk to her BF throughout the case because of the law. He wanted the charges dropped. They wanted to pursue. I am not pointing fingers. The CPS and police do a good job. Just saying we can’t always do a good job. This is my grieving process. Our greatest strength is our greatest weakness ❤️ ps – I was shown how to disable comments. So I’m going to do so on this post. Because it’s for me and my grieving process. But in a month i will be back on social because that’s 2020 and this is me navigating my way through life

    In paying tribute to Caroline, Dawn wrote, ‘Her laugh was my favourite laugh. We had so much fun. Honestly, we laughed until we wet ourselves. All the time. She was so funny, and so silly, and there were brilliant, brilliant times.

    ‘Her life had so much happiness in it. We went to so many festivals, and we sang at pianos and we danced at parties and we rolled around with tears of joy. And we knew how lucky we were, and we said it out loud. The best of times. Some of the most fun days of my life and hers too, I’m sure. ‘I’ll miss her laugh every day forever, and I’ll never believe this is real. I love you Caroline and I’ll always sing songs for you. No dance floor will ever be the same again.’
