It comes after Harry’s mum, Anne Twist, shared a tearjerking tribute to Caroline on Saturday, just hours after the tragic news was announced.

"How must your heart ache, to feel so all alone, the public face; the private face, both vulnerable.

"The mask we all wear, outside where skies are open, in view of others eyes, opinions words and cruelty.

"Unmasked and alone, black hole surrounds, no shoulder or heart, enough to take the pain."

Caroline and the former One Direction star dated briefly in 2011 after meeting when she hosted The Xtra Factor.

Writing in her autobiography, Storm in a C Cup, published in 2015, Caroline said of their romance: "I already knew that he had a crush on me, he's made it pretty obvious as he's said it in magazines and said it to friends.

"I've never felt I was much older than Harry. I still feel 18 and I probably act that way half the time. Although it was just a bit of fun we decided it was best to keep it to ourselves as we were both working for Simon Cowell.

"It began to go wrong when he was pictured coming out of my house one morning.

"And that was that. In the street people started shouting 'paedophile' at me in the street and 'pervert'."
