Olly Murs Pays Emotional Tribute To Caroline Flack On The Day Of Her Funeral
The pair worked together from 2011 to 2015 but never disconnected. Olly Murs will never forget his on and off-screen pal, Caroline Flack.
X-Factor to Xtra Factor Friends
Olly Murs was originally a successful X-Factor contestant who was asked to return to host the behind the scenes show the Xtra Factor with known television host, Caroline Flack. The two hit it off immediately and had great chemistry both on and off-screen. They would go on to work together on all sorts of projects and continued to be friends long after they stopped working together.
When she passed away Olly posted a deep and heartfelt message to her on Instagram saying "My kids will know you, my grandkids will and then I’ll see you again, give you a huge hug, a huge kiss, get mic’d up and have you by my side again."

Caz... fuck this hurts! My heart is forever broken.. I've lost something today that I'll never ever get back.. and that's you. From the first moment we met in Birmingham 2011 and had literally 10mins to say hello, get mic'd up and head out to work together on Xtra. We never stopped laughing, flirting (who can forget that), eating cheeseburger chasers, singing (which I always loved hearing), the arguments (which I never won), the disagreements on what jokes to say or what outfits you should wear, these are the moments I've always cherished but right now as I write this it's hit me I won't have them moments again. I haven't stopped crying since the news, after we stopped working together in 2015 we didn't see each other as much as we should have but we always spoke on the phone or messaged plus whenever I did see ya out and about, like a sister we'd just kiss and make up and was back being us every single time. I remember messaging you at your toughest time to let you know that I never read or listened to any of the crap people were saying about you, I was just worried about my friend. I always knew how fragile you were but I never ever thought this would be the last contact we would have. We always said we was friends for life and trust me you will be with me forever. My kids will know you, my grandkids will and then I'll see you again, give you a huge hug, a huge kiss, get mic'd up and have you by my side again. This will hurt forever, love you cazza, Your Ols
Olly has been vocal and emotionally open about the pain he is suffering due to this loss. On the day of her funeral he posted tear-jerking footage of Olly kissing his pal and co-host on the cheek.
