Alongside the sweet image, he penned: 'When I needed a cry you gave me a shoulder, when I needed space you let me have it and when I needed a kiss you said only on this F**king swing. But literally thanks for the last few days, hope I didn’t ruin the last week of your awesome family holiday darlin.'  

It comes after Olly shared an emotional post on Instagram on Friday, following his friend Caroline's tragic death aged 40 last week. 

Alongside an image showing him lying on a beach, he simply added the caption: 'Behind the clouds the sun is still shining', just a day after an inquest confirmed his former X Factor co-host took her own life. 

Fans soon swarmed to throw their support behind the star, who noted the rays of light shining from behind the clouds.

Earlier in the week, Olly shared a heartbreaking tribute shortly after Caroline was found dead by her father and a pal in north London last Saturday. 

He admitted he hasn't stopped crying since discovering the news of his late friend, who was found dead just hours after being told she would face trial over the alleged assault of her boyfriend Lewis Burton.

In an emotional post uploaded onto Instagram last Sunday, Olly - who worked with Caroline from 2011 until 2012 on The Xtra Factor before fronting the main show together in 2015 - confessed he was 'worried' about his 'fragile sister' and revealed he reached out to the ITV star during her 'toughest' times. 

'Caz... f**k this hurts! My heart is forever broken.. I’ve lost something today that I’ll never ever get back.. and that’s you', the grieving musician said.
