winnerof Love Island, Nathan Massey and Richard Arnold are back as well but Nathan let's start with you thanks for talking about anything we all know about. this business there are certain tv show hosts that involve members of the public that once the cameras go off they say i'll be in my trailer and that's it and they go off and you don't see the toughness she was the complete opposite yes she was so
goodas gold we laughed on and off camera she was always bubbly
goodlaugh and like i said we were at an awards ceremony i was ready to go home she was like that. "I've had so many beers and she said now come out, come out with us or take your Groucho's as a young lad from a construction site to go to Groucho's and she made me feel welcome you know I do and I." i haven't capped i know she was always there with a hair toss and a hug exactly that's a big part of the phone one hundred percent and like i said every once in a while when the cameras weren't rolling which was a laugh Absolutely, I guess because she didn't want you to have any negative experiences at all. during the taping of the show and afterward when she took you to Groucho's and stuff she would have hidden any of her anxieties and no no no she was just a bubbly fantastic yes diamond to be around an absolute great person this is how we must remember. she very kind of course this

I mean, I knew her professionally and obviously she followed her career, which of course is my job, so I met her many times on the red carpet on that particular summer day that we were there. At a festival in London, she just showed up in between filming scenes for
loveIreland and the picture says it all there, she's not just sizzling, absolutely, you know, in company, she was extraordinary like that, she had that x-factor, you know. and you know every time she walked into a room, I know it's said about a lot of people, but with her it was definitely her USP, you know there was that kind of free song, she had so much energy, you know an amazing spirit like that, those vulnerabilities, of course in that fragile nature that she identified with so much I mean you like to build oh you come on this show and it was a few years ago so what was she?

What was it about Caroline that drew you so much as a host on the show and then someone you have to know just someone like I said when the cameras were off she would be like one of the
islanders you know I mean laugh at us we all had a good laugh out there she it wasn't starry she wasn't snow you got that thing that people associate with people in public and sometimes very correctly i mean we all know them they're out there some of them come to you we talked to you before , can I repeat? one question and for the benefit of people that enough to see this um you're a psychologist if you would have had access to it and you didn't because joe she wasn't doing the show when you were the advisor if you'd have access to it in the past few months, do you think you could have prevented this from happening?
Do you think she could have been protected from the demons that were after her, and specifically those on social media and tabloids? Do you think you could have helped her? She's a very difficult question because I think when er someone dies in such tragic circumstances we have a tendency to think that they could have done something, there's something that could have made a difference, we'll never know the answer to that, but what can I say it's just the people I work with regularly who are in the public eye you know it's so unpleasant dealing with the social media landscape I think it's relatively in its infancy it's still not regulated all the tools to deal with in a psychological sense I mean yes , I'm getting really depressed from what I'm reading about me on Twitter, yeah could you tell me?
So one of the things I would say is, first of all, please understand that the way her brain works is that we actually tend to focus even if she's ninety-nine percent. of your messages are wonderful riches you are wonderful you get that one percent that is really horrible nasty and you hone in and focus on that now the brain does that irritable because we are social beings and it is looking for signs of resocialization Discipline of dejection Nathan is not there I mean then you got out in the public eye, you know and you met your partner and you're still together, right?
So you have this kind of Fame life, how did you find it and can you? you identify with something that we now understand and Carolina talked about it you know in these her anxieties she had told her you know someone had asked her how she thought most people misunderstand her and she replied that I think better of myself than I do maybe a little yes, but you can't scream. I'm not as confident as you think I am and actually people in the public eye are nothing and see yeah well I've had problems in the past on social media etc. like my lady her mom sees she really takes it seriously you know all she has is a negative comment about her looks and she thinks whatever yeah i got built on a boat building site so i haven't said names nor exactly documented but when it's weird for my wife she takes it to heart and I'm out there picking up the pieces and these people are telling us she looks like whatever so you'd have your pardis is programmed to focus in the only negative, so what? that would help you understand the impact of this try not to take it too seriously but the other thing is there are some practical things you can do to one of the trends when we get really negative feedback like your wife might What I have done is that we will tend to deny them sometimes on the Internet.
We could say, look at this horrible comment I got, but actually that can sometimes add fuel to the fire, so I suggest that you mean that it validates that it invalidates what they think. they realize that I have to them, yeah, so one of the things I always say is that it's a good idea to have a little private group, maybe a private WhatsApp group or something like that with your friends and family and of course of course, share it there so that you feel comfortable and so on. people can say oh my gosh it's horrible what you've been told so you validate it but you're not social currency and we can say with your happiest memories of
lovely Caroline what would you know if you It's when you think in it, what comes to mind right when we were on set, you know on love
islandwe walked through the doors and I was like, oh so we knew someone was going but it was kind of sweet but someone's going was a bittersweet moment you know a wonderful safe pair of hands yes exactly she was yes she had a lovely smile she was a lovely couple well god bless her yes rest in peace yes we should point out here she could have been in contact with this program and will asked to make it clear that Contrary to some reports, they were actually in constant contact with Caroline after this incident and regularly offered assistance, help and support, so it is important to record this , yes, and also if you or someone you know has been affected by any of the sorts of things discussed here, details of organizations that can offer advice and support are on the art itv websites. com /jm, pay if you need.
