Love Islandhost Caroline Flack has paid a touching tribute to her theatre co-star Daniel Bolton, following the sad news of his tragic passing.

Caroline, who starred alongside Daniel in the show Crazy For You, took to Instagram to share a photo of the pair together. Alongside the snap, Caroline wrote, 'Sometimes in life you cross paths with people who really touch your heart. Dani was one of them. You really knew the art of living... and looks like everyone is going to miss you . Rest in peace Dani Bolton from Bolton ❤️'. [sic]

Fans were quick to comment on the post, with many sending condolence messages for Daniel's family and friends. One user wrote, 'So sorry for your loss, sending my love ❤️❤️', with another adding, 'So so sad! Sending love, thoughts and prayers to all who knew Dani ❤️'. [sic]

The news of Daniel's sad death was announced on Twitter over the weekend by talent agency Belfield and Ward.

Sharing a photo of Daniel, the message read, 'With heavy hearts and huge sadness we have received the news that our dear Daniel Bolton lost his courageous fight yesterday. He was a huge talent, immensely gifted & a gentleman. We send immense love to his family and friends. A bright bright light snuffed out far too soon❤️'.

As well as her post on Instagram, Caroline also replied to the tweet confirming his death. She wrote, 'Kindest, funniest and the most beautiful. Life isn’t fair. RIP Danny Bolton from Bolton ❤️'. [sic]

Caroline and Daniel performed together in the theatre production of Crazy For You in 2017, but the Love Island host was forced to pull out of the show due to a recurring injury.
