Amanda memorialised the late presenter with a T-shirt emblazoned with her face and the phrase #BeKind.

She wore the outfit on her way to co-host the morning breakfast show at Heart alongside Jamie Theakston.

The T-shirts are produced by funnyman Keith Lemon and all profits go towards the Samaritans.

All were presenters on ITV and appeared to have grown close over the years.

Amanda was friends with Caroline

The Celebrity Juice presenter – real name Leigh Francis – explained why he was selling the T-shirts on Instagram.

He wrote: “Like everyone I was absolutely shocked by the news of what happened to Caroline. All the recent events just seemed so unreal.

“I’d been friends with Caroline for many years. Since before telly happened.

“In more recent times I’d not seen Caroline as much as I had years ago, but it was always like old times when I saw her.”

Money from the tops go to the Samaritans

He added: “I did this t-shirt to spread Caroline’s own words #Bekind, and to raise money for the Samaritans. 100% of profits will go to @samaritanscharity and the link is in my bio or tap the pic.

“For more information on the amazing work The Samaritans do, or if you are looking for any support, please go to samaritans.org or call them directly on 116 123.

“Will miss you Flack. Love to your family x.”

Meanwhile, Amanda Holden previously slammed ITV for not offering the same level of support to Caroline as “other artists in our industry who have struggled recently”.

Sharing a photo of the two together on Instagram, she wrote: “Utterly devastated to hear of the sudden death of this funny bright beautiful young girl. My heart goes out to her family. For Caroline to feel that death was the only way out breaks my heart ….

“Anger doesn’t even begin to cover how I feel about her being thrown to the dogs like she was ..

“Why was she not shown the same level of consideration, protection, warmth and importance as other artists in our industry who have struggled recently?”

The T-shirts were created by Keith Lemon

Caroline died after learning the CPS was pursuing charges that she allegedly attacked her boyfriend Lewis Burton.

She pleaded not guilty to assault by beating, but found out the day before her death that prosecutors had decided to move forward with the case.
