Summary

'In a world where you can be anything, be kind.'

Caroline Flack was the girl who had it all...beauty, talent, money, fame and a hugely successful career.

But, away from the television cameras and the fabulous parties, there hid a lonely, frightened young woman. Caroline was already a rising star when she shot to fame as the presenter of Love Island. With her beauty and her effervescent personality, she was perfect for the role and soon the show was drawing six million viewers.

Yet, behind the scenes, her love life was chaotic. She dated Prince Harry, Harry Styles and Russell Brand before finding love with tennis player Lewis Burton.

Her world came crashing down on the night Lewis called 999 to report Caroline was attacking him. Police found Caroline hysterical and the couple covered in blood.

Just as it seemed life could not be any worse, Caroline was fired by ITV and barred by the courts from contacting Lewis.

In this extraordinary and revealing book, Emily Herbert talks with friends and celebrities to reveal the heartbreaking true story of how this beautiful woman crashed from the pinnacle of fame and success to a lonely and tragic death.

Ad Lib Publishers are donating the profits from the sale of this book to support the work of Samaritans, a charity registered in England and Wales (219432), and other charities that support the victims of cyberbullying.

I didn't love this book, but I didn't hate it either, I was enjoying it until it started to venture away from Caroline and started telling you about all the contestants that were in some of the show's she presented, that stuff was really boring me and I felt was only there to fill the book up a bit more, I did enjoy when the story was about Caroline though. So for this reason I gave it 4 stars.

Well written and narrated

As an Audible book this is first rate. The narrator is superb and must take much of the credit for making this such an enjoyable listen. If I had actually bought the book and tried to wade through the details of reality shows I have never seen it would have been a different matter and a much lower score. An entertaining listen though and not too long.
