Caroline Flack’s mother’s advice to Phillip Schofield
According to OK! Magazine, Caroline and Phillip were good friends and Phillip was considerably heartbroken after Caroline’s death. In his BBC interview, Phillip said he understood how Caroline Flack must’ve felt and added:
If my daughters hadn’t been there then I wouldn’t be here.
Carline’s mother agreed and said:
He knew Caroline and I must say, when she died he was very upset.
The mother who lost her daughter due to media pressure and all the scrutiny that comes with being in the public eye, urged Phillip to do the ‘right thing.’ Christine said:
He’s trying to put things straight. But I don’t think it will end there.
I hope he’s done the right thing. I hope he feels better. I hope people now will let it settle.
I hate the thought that Phillip and this young man are going through such an awful time.
It’s bad enough when it’s in private, but when it’s in every single paper and first thing on the news, it’s just ridiculous. Wait to see what happens. Let’s hope for the best.
I send my regards to Phillip and the young lad and hope they get over this. Don’t do anything silly.

Caroline Flack’s mother slams ITV for ‘unfair’ behaviour
Drawing on what’s happening with This Morning’s Phillip Schofield and what happened with her daughter Caroline, Christine has slammed ITV for its ‘unfair’ behaviour. She said:
He’s lost his job, he’s lost his world. I think that’s enough. I think that’s enough for anybody.
Claiming that ITV treats its presenters as ‘commodities,’ she added:
I know it’s a lovely job and they earn money. But also the television stations earn money from them… they’re not commodities, they’re people.
It’s not only him, it is his daughters. Luckily he’s got them there for support.
But it’s his family. His wife, his mum. Everyone that’s around him. Everybody suffers – but not as much as him.
