Caroline Flack has been found dead at her London flat, just one day after the boyfriend who she is alleged to have assaulted, reached out to her on Instagram.
The presenter, 40, was banned from contacting her boyfriend, Lewis Burton, after she was charged with his assault in December.
She was due to return to court on March 4.
Her family have been informed.
She last posted on Instagram on Thursday with a collage of snaps, captioned simply with a love heart emoji, after her boyfriend, 27, contacted her via the photo sharing platform.
The TV star stepped down from her position as presenter of ITV’s Love Island after the assault charge and was rumoured to have written a self-help book.
On Thursday, Caroline announced she would be breaking her silence on recent reports about her personal life as she awaits her trial for common assault.
She wrote: ‘I’m going to speak today… mine and my family’s life is no longer up for entertainment or gossip,’ before changing her mind.
