Watch: Olly Murs honours Caroline Flack by naming a mountain after her

Olly Murs has said he had a "special weekend" undertaking a charity expedition in memory of his late friend Caroline Flack

The singer was part of a group aiming to climb 24 peaks in 24 hours to raise money for suicide prevention charity Samaritans after the Love Island star took her own life in February last year at the age of 40.

Murs, who co-hosted The X Factor alongside Flack in 2015, shared an update on Sunday from the summit of a peak in the Lake District where the challenge was taking place.
