ITV2 paid a touching tribute to Caroline Flack during the BRIT Awards red carpet show on Tuesday night, following her death on Saturday aged 40.
The channel shared a brief message at the end of the pre-awards programme, after the Love Island host presented the same show back in 2010.
It came before BRITs host Jack Whitehall also paid tribute to ‘kind’ and ‘infectious’ Caroline at the start of the main awards show, after she was found dead in her London flat over the weekend.

The pre-awards show was hosted by Clara Amfo and Alice Levine, and the pair slowly brought proceedings to a close ahead of the main show at London’s O2 Arena.
The show then ended with a black and white image of Caroline, with the caption: ‘Caroline Flack – The BRITs Presenting Team 2010.’
Caroline previously presented the BRITs red carpet back in 2010, and was a fixture at the music showcase for a decade.

Jack – who presented the main awards show – also paid an emotional tribute to Caroline at the start of the show.
The comedian, 31, said in a heartfelt speech: ‘Over the weekend, we learnt the awful news that a member of the BRITs family, our friend, Caroline Flack, tragically passed away.
‘She was a kind and vibrant person with an infectious sense of fun, she will be sorely missed. I’m sure I speak for everyone here when I say our thoughts are with her friends and family.’

Caroline took her own life aged 40 after a worried friend who was staying with her went to the shops, leaving the ex-Love Island presenter alone at her London flat.
It came just hours after she was told she would face trial for allegedly assaulting her boyfriend Lewis Burton, something she denied.
The tribute was followed by a fitting performance from Lewis Capaldi who sung his emotional hit track Someone You Loved.
While Caroline’s ex-boyfriend Harry Styles, whom she briefly dated in 2011 when he was 17 and she was 32, performed his new track Falling and earlier in the night he wore a black ribbon on his lapel in memory of her.
