TV BAFTAs 2020: viewers in tears in honor of Caroline Flack


The audience who watched TV-BAFTAs 2020 on Friday evening were moved to tears when the Academy paid tribute to the media stars who died in 2019 and 2020 – including Love Island's Caroline Flack.

The presenter tragically committed suicide in February, and the tribute was a strong reminder of everything that has happened to the global pandemic since then.

In the In Memoriam section of the program, which was the first to be presented virtually with social distancing, greats such as Dame Vera Lynn, Gary Rhodes and Honor Blackman were also shown.

However, Caroline died at the age of only 40, and fans went to Twitter to notice that they were seeing her again when a clip of her Fronting Love Island was shown.

“It is really difficult for me to understand that Caroline Flack has to be involved in this assembly. Incredibly sad, ”someone wrote.

"Oh Caroline #BaftaTV", one person tweeted while another wrote: "A man who saw the # BAFTA tribute to Caroline Flack brought a tear to my eyes. Reminder to always be kind! & # 39 ;

"We're looking at BAFTA's homage to the people we lost this year and are still as disappointed as we lost Caroline Flack this year," wrote another.

Laura Whitmore, who took on Caroline's role on Love Island, shared the tribute – as did that of the late Gay Byrne, which was also remembered.

Love Island was ready for a BAFTA, and Caroline's former co-host Iain Stirling announced that he was dedicating the award to her. However, he failed to scoop the gong.

Iain said earlier this year about the nomination: "Pleased to see everyone involved in the show that we're ready for another bafta.

“Personally, I was more touched to be called here and to be part of the team if I only talk into a microphone for a few hours than anyone will ever know.

& # 39; Well done, Love Island! Caroline – this is for you x [sic] & # 39;

Last month, Caroline's mother Christine hit the head of the law, who insisted that he was right to persecute the television star, and said, "Why can't you leave my beautiful daughter alone?"

Caroline committed suicide hours after learning that lawyers were hurting themselves after an alleged argument with her boyfriend Lewis Burton [27].

In a highly unusual intervention, 52-year-old Ed Beltrami suggested that Caroline might have attacked Lewis again if the prosecution hadn't acted.

Mr. Beltrami, head of the CPS in the North London region, said: "Domestic abuse poses a high risk of repetition, a high risk of the insult escalating. So you have to look at it."

Caroline's destroyed mother made a strong statement to the Eastern Daily Press criticizing Mr. Beltrami for his comments.

She said: "It is deeply unfortunate that Mr. Beltrami could not have left my beautiful daughter in peace … [and that he should choose to repeat some of the falsehoods about my daughter.]

“My daughter was unable to defend herself during her life and cannot now. Shame on you. & # 39;

Caroline, who died on February 15, was alleged to have attacked her friend Lewis with a lamp.

Not pleading guilty to beatings, she committed suicide at her home in London after learning that the prosecution was continuing the case.

The popular television host had emphatically rejected the indictment and her family described it as a "show trial". Lewis, who suffered minor injuries, refused to support the indictment.

Mr. Beltrami claimed never to have heard of Caroline in a newspaper interview and insisted, "You have to do what you think is right. You cannot do what you think is popular."

Christine accused Mr. Beltrami of "repeating false allegations" and the CPS "creating the toxic environment that ultimately resulted in Caroline's death."

She continued: "The CPS released the demons that hunted Caroline."

Caroline contested the charge of assault. In an Instagram post, she admitted, "responsibility for what happened", but "was NOT a domestic abuser".
