Stacey Solomon pays tribute to Caroline Flack with Keith Lemon’s Be Kind T-shirt
Stacey Solomon wore a Caroline Flack Be Kind T-shirt designed by the late star's pal Keith Lemon.
Caroline took her own life aged 40 at her north London flat just three weeks before she was due to stand trial on March 4 for common assault.
In the wake of her tragic death, the Loose Women star honoured the troubled beauty by purchasing and wearing the T-shirt.
The television sensation filmed herself waking up in the T-shirt while she was cradling her youngest son Rex in bed.
Her cute clip prompted many fans to ask where she had got her T-shirt from and whether it was Caroline's picture.
Stacey took time to explain to her followers it was a picture of Caroline which had been drawn by one of the late star's closest pals Keith Lemon.
The drawing captured Caroline looking completely relaxed as she toyed with her hair in the sketch.
She told fans: "Loads of you asking me about my T-shirt, it is Caroline."
Keith – also known as Leigh Francis – has been promoting the tee on his Twitter page with his own following of 3.5million.
The comedian was a close friend of Caroline's and they had worked together over the years.
His T-shirt will set people back £25 with all profits being donated to Samaritans.
He wrote: "Nice to see people wearing their tee’s in honour of Caroline raising money for @samaritans available from http://kilclothes.com in sizes Xs to 5xl £25 all profits go to Samaritans."
The showbiz world was rocked to its core when news broke Caroline had taken her life on February 15.
Saddened by the news, celebs from all walks of TV took to social media to express their sorrow.
Be Kind has become synonymous with Caroline after she had posted a message asking her fans and fellow celebs to act with kindness.
Her tragic death has sparked many acts of kindness including former Love Island star Molly-Mae Hague donating her latest PrettyLittleThing edit profits to Samaritans.
In her own words, Caroline insisted she wasn't a domestic abuser in an unpublished Instagram statement made public by her family.
She spoke about how the walls of her world had collapsed in 24 hours following a row at her home in mid-December which escalated to her arrest and subsequent charge.
The former Love Island star had pleaded not guilty to assault by beating during her first hearing in court and her boyfriend Lewis Burton always maintained her innocence.
