London – ITV was facing a reality show crisis on Sunday night after the suicide of presenter Caroline Flack.

But after talks on Sunday, the broadcaster decided to push ahead with the current series of Love Island.

Formerly fronted by Flack, it had already come under intense scrutiny after the suicides of two former contestants in the past two years.

Two episodes of the ITV2 dating show were cancelled over the weekend but it is set to return on Monday with a tribute to its former host.

Flack stepped down from her presenting role in December after she was arrested for an alleged assault on her boyfriend Lewis Burton, 27.
