Olly Murs looked back on his amazing friendship with the late Caroline Flack as he paid another tribute to her.

The former X Factor star, who hosted the ITV talent show alongside Caroline in 2015, shared an unseen video of them messing about together backstage.

Olly, 35, explained that he'd found the clip on his computer all these years later.

He said that a mixture of backstage boredom and excitement over the new slow motion function on their phones led to them creating this hilarious video.

Olly and Caroline are seen in super slow mo as they shake their heads from side to side and waggle their tongues.

Caroline has been remembered by her friends in a string of moving tributes.

The day after Caroline's death, Olly shared a promotional image of them together.

He wrote: "Caz… f**k this hurts! My heart is forever broken.. I’ve lost something today that I’ll never ever get back.. and that’s you.

"From the first moment we met in Birmingham 2011 and had literally 10mins to say hello, get mic’d up and head out to work together on Xtra. We never stopped laughing, flirting (who can forget that), eating cheeseburger chasers, singing (which I always loved hearing), the arguments (which I never won), the disagreements on what jokes to say or what outfits you should wear, these are the moments I’ve always cherished but right now as I write this it’s hit me I won’t have them moments again.

"I haven’t stopped crying since the news, after we stopped working together in 2015 we didn’t see each other as much as we should have but we always spoke on the phone or messaged plus whenever I did see ya out and about, like a sister we’d just kiss and make up and was back being us every single time.

"I remember messaging you at your toughest time to let you know that I never read or listened to any of the crap people were saying about you, I was just worried about my friend. I always knew how fragile you were but I never ever thought this would be the last contact we would have.

"We always said we was friends for life and trust me you will be with me forever. My kids will know you, my grandkids will and then I’ll see you again, give you a huge hug, a huge kiss, get mic’d up and have you by my side again. This will hurt forever, love you cazza, Your Ols"
