“Dancing in the moonlight. I know you are free cos you are the star shining down on me.” 

Louise captioned the post: “This song has taken on a whole new meaning for me. I know you’re shining down on us x.”

The tear-jerking post comes days after the vocalist, who split with ex-husband Jamie Redknapp in 2017, shared a full tribute to Caroline thanking her for “reaching out” when “things were tough”.

The heartbreaking post included a string of selfies of the pairs cuddled up and posing together, including one from a night out together. 

Louise began the post, writing: “I’m not quite sure where to start with this it is so heartbreaking.

“Caroline when things were tough for me and you were going through equally such a tough time you reached out to me and it was so nice to have someone that had been there and been through the same emotions and feelings as me even though different circumstances.

“I always think it takes a certain soul to be able to reach out to someone who they don’t really know that well and speak from the heart but you did that for me and from that moment a close friendship was founded. I feel so proud that I was someone that you felt you could trust and that you could speak to at any time about anything.”

She added: “I know what really mattered to you was being loved and being cared for and I just wish you could see how loved you were by so many people.

“You didn’t deserve any of this what has happened. You were the kindest, brightest fun and sincere friend I’ve met in this industry. You turned up to every show I ever did coming back into the industry you helped me believe I could go back and do something I never thought I could do again.”

Louise went on to vow to be the “person that you and I spoke about”, adding that she would do it “for us”.
