WORLD-FAMOUS singer-songwriter Olly Murs dedicated an unnamed Lake District fell in memory of his friend Caroline Flack.

Murs, 37, has raised almost £25,000 for suicide prevention charity Samaritans in the process.

TV presenter Flack, known for her work on Love Island and The Xtra Factor, died by suicide in February 2020 at the age of 40.

Murs was one member of a group of Flack’s close friends and family that climbed ‘24 peaks in 24 hours’ - spread across two days - in her memory.

The Windermere-based Mountain Goat Tour Company posted to social media on Sunday: “Our driver-guide Gerry had the honour of driving Olly Murs to and from his charity climb in the Lake District this weekend!”

On Sunday, the singer, whose hits include Dance with Me Tonight and Troublemaker, posted an update to social media from a Lake District peak.

He said: “New peak at the Lake District!

“This one had no name, so we called it the ‘Flack Peak’.

“This was a special weekend with special people, doing something for a very special person!

“Thanks for all the messages of support and the donation.”

In a video, he said: “Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart, from all of us.

“My legs are sore, I’ve got blisters, my knees are so tired.

“I’m exhausted but I’m doing this for Caz, we are doing this for the Samaritans.”

On Saturday, Murs had posted a picture of himself at Rossett Pike, in the Southern Fells region.

Ye Olde Fleece Inn, a pub in Kendal, posted to social media on Sunday: “Big well done to Olly Murs who dined with us three nights this week whilst fundraising for Samaritans in memory of Caroline Flack.”

The public can still donate to the cause.
