Rugby ace Danny Cipriani has taken to Instagram to publish final WhatsApp messages from late Love Island host Caroline Flack.

Sharing screenshot with his 262,000 followers, Danny explained the reason he is making the private messages public is to help with his grieving process.

In the messages Caroline refers to Danny as 'black dot' which the sportsman says is a reference to his WhatsApp display picture being all black.

Caroline, 40, wrote: "Hello 🙂 Black dot. I’m ok. How you?"

Danny replied: "Haha. You look gorgeous in your pic.

"I’m well. Navigating my way through an industry which has never suited me. But… I’m still being great.

"Why you just ok? Want you smiling."

Minutes later Caroline bluntly replied: "Well got court case coming up."

Danny captioned the post: "Black dot. Before I start. This is my grieving process. Which is talking. A lot.

"Which my friends and family and teammates have had to take this last ten days because I’m grieving.

"And I’m grieving hard. Hence I’m talking a lot. I’m not sure I’d be strong enough if I didn’t understand or see myself in her. Pain is pain.

"It doesn’t matter if you’ve lost a cat. Or been called a name. No ones pain is worse or less. Because it is individual to them and how they take it.

"So… Black dot. If you judge the first pic you see a black dot."

Danny, who previously dated Caroline, continued: "I didn’t really know what she meant when she called me black dot. Until her best friend told me on Sunday last week.

"She used to call you black dot, now I know, your WhatsApp pic is a black dot’ – so I changed my WhatsApp pic to a black dot about 5 months ago because I felt there were people who had my number who i couldn’t trust.

"Ultimately I would have let them into my life. So ultimately I would have to ask myself why. Anyway.

"This story is about the beauty she found in a situation I found uncomfortable."

Reflecting on the star, Danny said: "She was kind beyond belief. And she would think I am crazy doing all this. But I know she would be proud.

"I’m taking lent off social media. Thank you all for the kind messages. And all the lovely response.

"Thank you for the bad response. It’s my story. And I did it for me.

"Then her – she wasn’t allowed to talk to her BF [boyfriend] throughout the case because of the law.

"He wanted the charges dropped. They wanted to pursue.

"I am not pointing fingers. The CPS and police do a good job.

"Just saying we can’t always do a good job. This is my grieving process."

Caroline Flack was tragically found dead at her East London home on Saturday February 15.

She was just 40-year-old and had taken her own life weeks before being due to appear at Highbury and Islington's Magistrates Court on charges of assault by beating which she had always denied.
