Caroline Flack’s ‘Be Kind’ campaign ‘changed the world,’ says her sister.
Jody appeared at Flackfest – a festival in dedication to the presenter’s life – when she discussed her sibling, who tragically took her own life in 2020, aged 40.
According to the Mirror, her sister addressed social media trolls at the event and said: “In my world, it’s changed.

“Caroline would have been amazed by everyone who has helped and supported us.”
Flack’s friend, Dawn O’Porter, also performed on stage and reportedly went on to add that she hopes there’s been a ‘ripple of kindness to happen after this’.
She continued: “We have all, as a world, been through so much that hopefully, we can come out the other side and not be a**holes.”
Many other celebrities also appeared at the event, including Dermot O’Leary and Rylan Clark-Neal, who apparently appeared on stage and said: “I tell you what if she was here she wouldn’t remember any of it, you know what she was like. This is unreal.”
Previously, Flack’s mum, Christine, has blasted social media and its impact.
She told the Mirror: “When I was young, if you were bullied at school you could get away from it.
“You can’t get away from it now because it follows you home, it follows you on your phone.
“It is not that there’s a lack of money. They don’t protect anyone.”
She went on to criticise celebrities such as Graham Norton and Lorraine Kelly, who have previously made ‘hurtful’ jokes about Flack.
After the Love Island star and her co-host, Olly Murs, were replaced on The X-Factor as presenters, Norton appeared at the BAFTAs and said: “Dermot is back on the X-Factor, well done Dermot! I’m not saying the writing was on the wall for Caroline Flack, but you could get better odds of Anne Boleyn returning for the second series at Wolf Hall.”
