Olly Murs returned to the stage this weekend, where he paid tribute to his late friend Caroline Flack.

In a video shared on Instagram yesterday (July 31), the 'Dance with Me Tonight' singer-songwriter could be seen belting out a rendition of Neil Diamond's classic track 'Sweet Caroline' along with a huge crowd.

"For you caz! @newmarket_racecourses 2021 what a crowd!" his caption read. "Was great to be back on stage again! Loved it and loved you all for coming!"
