Her family wrote in a statement about her death: “We can confirm that our Caroline passed yesterday on the 15th February. We would ask that the press both respect the privacy of the family at this difficult time.”
The TV personality told her fans she would be leaving the ITV2 reality show for series six in a post on social media in December.
The announcement came after police were called to the home she shared with her boyfriend Lewis.
She pleaded not guilty to attacking Lewis at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court on December 23.
The court heard that Mr Burton is not supporting the prosecution, as Paul Morris, defending, said he “has never supported” the case against Caroline.
