Since the news broke, stars have commented on social media, including musicians James Blake and Liam Gallagher.

Taking to Twitter, Blake wrote: “#rip Caroline Flack. This is the effect of online and print bullying. This is what dehumanizing and hounding people leads to.

“As a society we need to find our compassion and empathy. We don’t know what other people are going through as they almost always present an ‘ok’ front.”

Blake’s girlfriend, Jameela Jamil – who has been the subject of online and print bullying – said: “It was only a matter of time before the media and a prolonged social media dogpile, hers lasted for MONTHS, pushed someone completely over the edge. Rest In Peace Caroline Flack. This is fucking horrendous.”
