“We would ask that the press respect the privacy of the family at this difficult time and we would ask they make no attempt to contact us and/or photograph us.”

The saddening news comes after the star’s recent holiday in Los Angeles.

At the end of last year, Flack stepped down from her role presenting the ITV dating show when she was accused of assaulting her boyfriend, Lewis Burton.

In the same month, she reportedly entered a not guilty plea at the Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court.

She had been due to stand trial on March 4.

The case has been criticised by Flack’s management, who argued that it had become a ‘show trial,’ as even Burton reportedly said he didn’t support it.

Although the pair were apparently forbidden from getting into contact with one another, the star’s partner made an Instagram post about Flack the day before her passing.

Heartbreakingly, he penned: “Happy Valentine’s. Love you”.

In recent weeks, Flack had been inactive on social media. However, just a day ago, she posted a photo of her and her French bulldog, alongside a love heart emoji.

Previously, she had revealed that after the incident with Burton, she had been advised to not be active on social media.
