Laura Whitmore and Imelda May team up for touching tribute to Caroline Flack 

Laura Whitmore shared a lovely tribute to her close friend Caroline Flack yesterday, enlisting the vocal talents of Imelda May for a cover of Caroline's favourite song.

A difficult day for all those who knew her, today marks the one year anniversary of the passing of Caroline Flack. Beloved by so many around the world, friends, family and fans have been sharing lovely tributes to the well-known TV presenter - including her close pal Laura Whitmore.

Wrapping up her Valentine's Day BBC 5 radio broadcast yesterday with a few last min housekeeping bits, The Whitmore finished by saying a few words in memory of Caroline.

"Tomorrow is also the anniversary of the death of Caroline Flack and in many ways, it still feels so fresh and in others, the last year does feel like a decade. But it doesn't get any easier to comprehend, and sometimes when you can't think of the right words to say a song can feel more appropriate.

"So, it will be a difficult time, but I hope a chance to celebrate her memory. This song, to those who knew Caroline well, is very special. Her family played it at her funeral last year and a very good friend of the show, musician Imelda May, has kindly recorded a version just for us. This is one of Caroline's favourite songs - this is The Glory of Love."

Laura's husband Iain Stirling, this morning shared his own tribute to Caroline, posting a photo of them back in happier times and writing: "To my friend Caroline, thinking of you today. Miss you mate x."

You can listen to the full clip of The Glory of Love here - skip ahead to 1:28:37 to get right to it.
