Laura Whitmore hits out at photographer who took pictures of her while she was mourning Caroline Flack's death

LAURA WHITMORE has called out the photographer who took pictures of her and boyfriend Iain Sterling while they mourned the death of Caroline Flack.

Flack was found dead at her home in London last Saturday, February 15.

Her death was later confirmed as a suicide.

Whitmore replaced Flack as the host of the ITV2 reality series Love Island.

The decision followed on from Flack’s arrest for allegedly assaulting her boyfriend in December of last year.

In the wake of Flack’s sudden passing, Whitmore has spoken openly of a need for people to be kinder to one another while also hitting out at the tabloid press for their role.

However, she was left upset when, after arriving in South Africa ahead of the final of the winter series of the show, she found herself accosted by a photographer at the airport.

Taking to Twitter, Whitmore explained how after arriving at the airport to meet her partner Iain, the pair were spotted by a photographer who proceeded to take pictures of them while they mourned the death of Flack.

As they continued on through the airport, the photographer continued to follow them, snapping along the way.

Things eventually came to a head with the couple confronting the man.

“I landed in Cape Town this morning and it is the first time I’ve been with Iain since Caroline passed away,’ she wrote.

“It’s been really hard being apart.  At the airport, a photographer took pictures of us both and we tried to ignore it but he continued to follow us as we got coffee and left the building.

“So I asked him would he stop as he had what he wanted.  I said we were mourning a friend and could he allow us some space.

“Iain and I just wanted some privacy.”

Whitmore went on to post a video filmed by Sterling showing her asking the photographer not to take pictures and his reaction.
