Caroline Flack’s fortune will be donated to charitable causes she was passionate about after the star did not leave a will, her mum has said.

The Love Island host tragically took her own life in February, aged 40, and her family are hoping that the donations will help her legacy live on for many years to come.

It was thought that Caroline had amassed a £2million fortune but after her debts were paid and death duty was taken, there was £827,000 left which will now be distributed “wisely”.

The official probate figures were revealed on Tuesday and Caroline’s mum, Christine, said: “We will use the money wisely to help good causes that Caroline was passionate about.”

The law states that anyone in England and Wales who dies without making a will is declared intestate.

The Sun reports that friends of the TV personality have promised that charities close to Caroline’s heart will be the main beneficiaries of the money.

The estate will formally be shared between Caroline’s parents as they have survived her and High Court records reportedly show that Christine in the legally appointed administrator of the estate.

Caroline was found dead at her home in Stoke Newington, North London, on February 15,

A private funeral was held near her family home in Norfolk a month later, with more than 200 people attending.

Christine said at the time: “There were lots of memories, smiles but mostly tears as we all remembered Carrie and the joy she had brought to all of our lives.”

Caroline was involved in many top TV shows from Love Island to winning Strictly Come Dancing.

She also hosted or appeared on The X Factor and I’m A Celebrity’s spin-off show.

In Caroline’s memory, friends and family have planned to undertake a two-day hike in the Lake District, which has been labelled Climb for Caroline, with all money raised being donated to the Samaritans.
