surviving grief

At just 17, Jodie Chesney should have had her whole life ahead of her. Instead, the avid girl scout made horrifying headlines as she was knifed to death in a sickening and unprovoked attack. That was a year ago and this week her stepmum Joanne chose to speak to Closer to pay tribute to Jodie and to raise awareness of the charity set up in her name to educate about knife crime. Nothing can prepare you for the sudden death of a loved one, but on page 16 our psychological therapist Emma Kenny explains how the ‘rules’ she’s devised are helping her to cope since losing her father to suicide seven months ago. She admits the news of beautiful and charismatic Caroline Flack’s tragic death blindsided her. It did everyone…

caroline’s mum: ‘she was surrounded by love’

The news of Caroline Flack’s death has sparked an outpouring of sympathy and tributes from her family, friends and fans. One emotional fan wrote online, “You can be talented, beautiful, have a great job, good friends, be financially stable, and loved by many, but still suffer.” While another added, “I can’t stop thinking about it. She just always seemed so bubbly and fun. She seemed to have it all, but you never know what is going on in someone’s mind.” Caroline’s death prompted Love Island star Molly-Mae Hague to donate 100 per cent of the profits from her clothing line to charity Mind, while In The Style raised £250k for Samaritans in 24 hours with “Be Kind” T-shirts – echoing a message Caroline had posted on Instagram. The much-loved presenter was always…

sam: ‘she made sure every love island contestant felt okay ’

He was a late entry into Love Island in 2018, but during Sam Bird’s short time in the villa, the show’s host Caroline Flack had a lasting impact on him. Speaking to Closer at the Warner Music and Ciroc BRIT awards afterparty, Sam, 33, says, “It’s a desperately sad and tragic situation. It just makes you think about the world and the industry. She was an amazing person and I’ve got nothing but great things to say about her. “She was such a big part of my journey into the showbiz world. She made sure every single Love Island contestant felt they were OK before they went in, and even during [the show]. “There was a time when I was really down in the villa, and I was sitting on my own off…

‘vibrant and vivacious, caroline was one of a kind’

In the showbiz world, most celebrities prefer to clock on and off while dealing with press, never exchanging more than a few pleasantries with reporters once the interview is over. But Caroline – who I met several times throughout my career – was one of a kind. She wanted you to feel happy in her company. She’d welcome you as if she recognised you, and she laughed loudly at a rubbish joke I made once, just to make me feel comfortable. When she saw you, she’d jump up and hug you as if you were a long-lost friend, squeezing you tightly. She was never late or rude, and would even hang around after interviews to have dinner with everyone. On one occasion, the group of journalists I was with were drinking Champagne, about…

coleen: ‘wayne and i are ready for baby no.5’

They’d not been pictured together in public for six months, but last week Wayne and Coleen Rooney put on a display of unity when they were snapped walking side by side as they went out for breakfast. And while Wayne, 34, may have been regarded as one of the biggest party boys in football, he appears to have changed his ways after new reports claimed he’d given up alcohol and, as a result, their 11-year marriage is said to be “stronger than ever”. Insiders say the pair are in such a good place that Coleen, 33 – who has previously expressed her wish to have a daughter – are planning baby number five. A source says, “Coleen and Wayne have had a lot of ups and downs and dramas, but they’ve got through…

kim steps in to help posh with new reality show

They’re both global superstars with multi-million-pound business empires, but that’s not all that Posh and Kim Kardashian have in common. Both performed incredible transformations – Kim, 39, from reality star to A-lister, and Posh, 45, from Spice Girl to fashion designer. And now the stars – who Closer reported last week have struck up an unlikely friendship – are set to share more similarities, as Kim has told her fellow mum-of-four that she’ll help her create a reality show to boost her struggling fashion label, which has failed to make a profit since its launch 12 years ago. A source says, “Kim knows how desperate Vic is to boost sales, and said opening up for the cameras is a sure-fire way of giving her label the exposure and publicity it needs. “Vic…
