Caroline Flack’s family has said the Love Island’s presenter’s £827,000 estate will be donated to charity after she failed to make a will before her death in February.

The star died February 15 at the age of 40, and, according to reports, left an estate worth £2million.

According to the Sun, probate figures announced the value of Flack’s estate was reduced to just over £800k after debts and death duties were taken out.

Flack’s mother Christine, who is reportedly acting as the legally appointed administrator, pledged her daughter’s estate will be put to sweet use.

She said: ‘We will use the money wisely to help good causes that Caroline was passionate about.’

By law, anyone who dies without making a will in England and Wales is declared intestate, with Flack’s parents ‘given an equal share’ in the star’s estate.

Friends of Flack shared tributes to the bubbly presenter on what would have been her 41st birthday on Monday, with Dawn O’Porter joining Bake Off’s Noel Fielding, as well as Love Island’s Iain Stirling and Laura Whitmore, who all shared messages on social media.

Lewis Burton, who was dating Flack at the time of her death, shared a black and white clip of the star, writing: ‘Happy birthday up there,’ along with a red heart emoji.

Burton added: ‘Miss u x.’

Author O’Porter shared many tributes over the years for her close pal.

Sharing an image of Flack cuddling up to a dog, O’Porter said on Monday morning she’d just been woken up from a dream in which her friend appeared – musing she was ‘always so happy’ in her dreams.

She wrote alongside the snap: ‘There is not an hour of any day that I am not thinking about Caroline. It’s 1.15am here. A dream just woke me up. I love my Caroline dreams, they feel like visits. She’s always so happy in them.

‘Sometimes I sit on the sofa that she’s on in this photo and shut my eyes and imagine her DNA seeping through my skin and becoming a part of mine.

‘So silly the things you find yourself doing when you lose someone you adore. Happy birthday my funny funny loyal friend, the only thing that makes this easier is knowing how lucky I was to have you at all. Sending love to everyone who loved her too.’

Flack’s body was found in her North London flat in February, as she awaited trial for an assault charge after an incident with Burton – both Flack and Burton denied the charge.

It was announced recently a new documentary focusing on the life and career of the host is set to arrive on Channel 4 later this year.

Friends and family of the presenter will pay their respects to Flack as part of the tribute show, with the one-hour special to focus on the pressures faced by the presenter during her career, as well as the impact social media and press coverage had upon her life.
