Family and friends of Caroline Flack have announced details of a one-day festival this summer to celebrate the late TV presenter’s life.

The former Love Island and The X Factor host was found dead at her North London home in 2020, with an inquest later ruling that she had taken her own life.

Now, Flack’s family and close friends including broadcaster Dawn O’Porter and comedian Keith Lennon have announced plans to host a one-off event in her memory.

Taking place at Berkshire’s Englefield Estate on July 25, the intimate festival will take in sets from the likes of Natalie Imbruglia, Louise Redknapp, Fleur East and an array of comedy stars including Paddy McGuinness, Joel Dommett and Noel Fielding.

Money raised from Flackstock will be split equally between the mental health charities Mind and Samaritans, as well as Choose Love and Charlie Waller Trust. You can find more info and tickets here.

Caroline’s mother Christine says of Flackstock: “My Caroline was never more herself or happier than at a music festival with her sister and her friends.

“Flackstock is the wonderful idea of those who knew her best and the perfect way to remember her singing, dancing and most of all laughing.

“Not only is Flackstock the most positive way to honour Carrie but charities that she loved with benefit from the proceeds.

“A big thank you to everyone involved for all their hard work – to Natalie for the mad idea, Giles Cooper Entertainment and Englefield House who saved the day, Live Nation and to all the brilliant sponsors.

“My family are so proud that so many people who knew Carrie loved her so very much.”
