Former rugby player Caroline Flack’s ex-boyfriend revealed that he missed a call from her during a game, leaving him in a river of tears after finding out she was dead.
Danny Cipriani, 32, dated Flack, 40, for just eight weeks last year, with the ITV presenter who ended their romance because they didn’t see “a long-term future”.
She was found unresponsive in her North London home by her father Ian shortly after 2.30pm on Saturday and was declared dead on the scene.
Today it was revealed that ambulance crews were also sent to her Islington apartment on Friday, due to concerns about her well-being, but they decided not to take her to hospital.
On Friday, Cipriani played for Gloucester in their game against Exeter, who lost 15-26.

After joining a Twitter spit on Flack’s death, he published: ‘I don’t know who you are. I sincerely hope you have the love you never received.
‘This has nothing to do with a game. I missed your call because of a fucking game. I’ve been up all night. I’ve never cried so much, but I’m showing you it’s okay to be vulnerable. ”
Flack was barred from contacting her boyfriend Lewis Burton, 27, on Valentine’s Day in accordance with his bail conditions.
It is not clear whether the “call” to which Cipriani refers was during his last 48 hours.
The Crown prosecutor had decided to put her on trial for her alleged assault on Mr. Burton late last year.

Cipriani (pictured on Friday’s game Gloucester – Exeter) tweeted: ‘I missed his call due to a fucking game. I’ve been up all night. I have never cried so much.
The former X Factor had discovered he was on trial a few hours before killing himself.
He dated Cipriani before he got engaged to apprentice star Andrew Brady and entered into a relationship with Mr Burton.
A source told The Sun when they broke up: ‘Caroline and Danny had a lot of fun together and she is very fond of him, but in the long run it won’t work.
‘They decided to end it and remain friends. Caroline has a busy summer ahead of her and is already going on dating other people.
“He had a painful breakup last year and feels better if he has fun until he finds the right person.”
