Caroline Flack missed off Royal Variety Performance tributes

Confusion has mounted after Caroline Flack was missed out of the tributes segment in this year’s Royal Variety Performance, which aired on Tuesday night.

The annual celebration honoured a number of celebrities who have died this year, including Des O’Connor, Bobby Ball and Dame Vera Lynn, in a moving tribute.

However, there was no mention of Love Island presenter Caroline, who died from suicide in February, aged 40.

Besides being known for hosting a number of television shows, such as X Factor and Gladiators, Caroline was an actress and starred as Roxie Hart in the stage musical Chicago in 2018.

Many viewers noticed Caroline was overlooked in the show’s tributes section and shared their findings on social media.

‘And where was Caroline Flack in your memorial montage?!’ asked one, while another posted: ‘Royal Variety Performance did not honour Caroline Flack?!?’

This year’s Royal Variety Performance took place without a live audience for the first time in its 60 years.

Instead, host Jason Manford treated a virtual audience to a series of star-studded performances, by the likes of magician Stephen Mulhern, Gary Barlow and Captain Tom Moore.

The show was also held at Blackpool Opera House for the first time in more than a decade.

Sheridan Smith wowed viewers as she reprised her role as the late Cilla Black, and took to the stage in a beautiful green gown to perform a rendition of Anyone Who Had A Hear.

Metro.co.uk has contacted ITV for comment.

The Royal Variety Performance is available to stream on the ITV Hub.
