Olly Murs has completed his charity mountain trek that he undertook in honour of his late friend Caroline Flack.

The X Factor star and a group of Caroline's friends climbed over 24 peaks in the mountains across the Lake District over 24 hours to raise money for the Samaritans.

Caroline took her own life in February last year. She was only 40-years-old.

Joining the late Love Island host's best pal Mollie Grosberg and some of her other loved ones, Olly named one of the peaks after Caroline.

He took to his Instagram account to document the trek, calling it a "special weekend".

"This pic was clearly taken at the start for anyone who is wondering we did 7 PEAKS SO FAR – ROSSETT PIKE, ALLEN GRAGS, ILL GRAG, SCAFELL PIKE, BROAD CRAG, ESK PIKE AND BOW FELL."

The second post, which Olly shared on Sunday afternoon, came after they'd finished their mammoth trek.

In the first snap they'd written "Flack peak" on a rock in honour of the peak they'd named after Caroline.

The second picture was the group lying down taking a well-earned rest after completing their challenge.

"New peak at the Lake District! This one had no name, so we called it the 'Flack Peak,'" Olly captioned the post, adding love heart and crying emojis,.

"This was a Special weekend with Special people, doing something for a very Special person!

"Thanks for all the messages of support and the donations xx."

So far, the challenge has raised over £20,000 on the group's Just Giving page.
