Caroline Flack, the former host of the U.K. reality competition, “Love Island,” has died. She was 40.

In a statement to the BBC, her family said, “We can confirm that our Caroline passed away today, the 15th of February.”

The British star first began her career as an actress on the 2002 sketch comedy show “Bo’ Select!” and then joined the ITV network on shows like “I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!,” “The Xtra Factor,” “Minute to Win It” and “Viral Tap.”

She began hosting “Love Island” in 2015 and its spinoff show “Love Island: Aftersun” in 2017. She stepped down from the hosting gig in late 2019 following allegations of an assault toward her boyfriend, tennis player Lewis Burton. She was replaced by Laura Whitmore.

More to come.
