Fans Call For Love Island To Be Cancelled After Caroline Flack's Death

The show has come in for some criticism following the death of its former presenter

Fans are calling for Love Island to be cancelled following Caroline Flack's death.

It comes after a lawyer for the 40-year-old's family confirmed that she was found at her East London flat yesterday.

Viewers have now taken to social media to demand that ITV pull the reality show from their schedule, once and for all.

Broaching the subject of its future, This Morning host Eamonn Holmes said: "Caroline Flack .... Dear God. Shocked beyond belief. May she have found peace . #Rip Has to be repercussions for Love Island now surely?

"Meaning out of Respect, can the series continue?"

Ms Flack stood down as the presenter of the reality dating show following an assault charge.

Taking to Twitter, critics of the show demanded it be axed for good.

One person wrote: "In respect of Caroline Flack they should cancel Love Island permanently."

A second commented: "So how did @ITV cancel The Jeremy Kyle after one person killed themself after the show and now 3 people has killed them self who's been on Love Island and they still keep the s*** show on."

"Time to get rid of Love Island. It's been pulled from tonight's schedule. Let's hope this series ends early and it gets AXED permanently," said a third.

While another damning statement read: "Love Island is dangerous. Get Love Island axed before something else happens please."

This comes after the tragic news was announced that Ms Flack had passed away.

Her family confirmed her death in a statement, which read: "We can confirm that our Caroline passed away today on the 15th February.

"We would ask that the press both respect the privacy of the family at this difficult time."

The television presenter was found dead at her London flat yesterday.

Earlier today, Ms Flack's boyfriend Lewis Burton shared an emotional tribute on social media.

Sharing a photograph of the pair together he said he wrote: "My heart is broken we had something so special.

"I am so lost for words I am in so much pain I miss you so much I know you felt safe with me you always said.

"I don't think about anything else when I am with you and I was not allowed to be there this time I kept asking and asking.

"I will be your voice baby I promise I will ask all the questions you wanted and I will get all the answers nothing will bring you back but I will try make you proud everyday.

"I love you with all my heart."
