Love Island's Sunday night episode has been cancelled following the death of its former presenter Caroline Flack.

The 40-year-old was found dead at her home in east London on Saturday. A lawyer for her family confirmed that Caroline took her own life.

On Saturday, the highlights edition of the ITV2 dating show was pulled, and now it has been confirmed that Sunday's episode will also not air, though the series is set to continue.

Love Island will be back on Monday, with a special tribute to Caroline.

An ITV spokesperson said: "Many people at ITV knew Caroline well and held her in great affection.

"All of us are absolutely devastated at this tragic news.

"After careful consultation between Caroline's representatives and the Love Island production team and given how close we still are to the news of Caroline's tragic death we have decided not to broadcast tonight's Love Island out of respect for Caroline's family.

"Love Island will return tomorrow night which will include a tribute to Caroline who will be forever in our hearts."

Meanwhile, Dancing On Ice hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield paid an emotional tribute to Caroline on Sunday's show.

Opening the programme, Phillip said: "We'd like to begin tonight's show by taking a moment to remember Caroline Flack.

"In light of yesterday's awful news, we wanted to say that our hearts go out to her family and friends."

Holly added: "Many of us here on the show knew Caroline as a friend, and we'll all miss her enormously.

"As Caroline herself recently posted, in a world where you can be anything, be kind."
