Caroline Flack’s close friend Dawn O’Porter, 41, believes she is still with her. The TV presenter’s admission comes after the Love Island host took her own life in February aged 40.
Dawn has since opened up about her grief in her new book Life In Pieces, explaining that she believes her friend’s essence lives on in a tree near the home she shares with husband and Hollywood star Chris O’Dowd.
She penned: “Caroline has been throwing signs at me like fireballs and I’ve been catching them all and clinging on tight.”
The mum-of-two also recalled the moment she woke up to “total mayhem”outside her home, with discarded toys everywhere.
The presenter had initially blamed the chaos on crows.
Dawn wrote: “Then I learned that crows have funerals. Apparently, when one dies, they throw an event.
“Which is f****d up, because as they continued to draw my eyes to the sky, a plane started writing ‘Be Kind’ and a huge heart, right above my house.”
She continued: “I could not believe what I was seeing.
“Caroline’s death had kicked off a social media campaign called #BeKind, then there they were, those words written above my house, when I was already having a straight-up weepy moment about her and had had a particularly bad night.
“And then her sending the crows in so I didn’t miss it. It’s all obvious.”
Dawn, who has struggled with anxiety, said that when she wakes up every night, Caroline is the first thing she sees.
It comes after Caroline’s mum Christine Flack spoke of her constant battle to remind her daughter how “fabulous” her life was.
She revealed that she tried her best to remind the former Love Island presenter, but her words were “not being heard”.

She recalled: “We tried to talk to her and say you’ve got this fabulous career and you’ve got a nice home.
“But actually, that doesn’t matter, because that isn’t how they feel. I think when someone is in that place, what we say isn’t being heard.
“She was always frightened that the public would find out that she was vulnerable and she had these dark feelings.”
Christine also revealed Caroline would tell her not to be judgmental of people on television when they watched shows together.
She added to ITV Anglia: “I used to sit with Caroline and watch television, the same as everybody else, and I would say, ‘Oh I don’t like them’.
“And she’d say, ‘Mum, you don’t even know them.’ It made me stop and think, no I don’t.
“We judge people and we don’t know them. We don’t know what they’re going through.”
The former Strictly Come Dancing contestant died by suicide in her London flat on February 15.
