Thanking Gemma, who originally posted the snap, Dawn wrote: ‘Thanks @gemagain for posting this picture. The best of the best times.

‘Glastonbury is where we had our most fun. All week I’ve been imagining us there. We must be grateful we did it at all, rather than be sad we won’t do it again.

She ended the post by adding: ‘If those fields could talk… such memories [heart].’

Dawn candidly detailed her experience with grief and shared an old photograph of the duo at an event together in 2015.

Alongside the image, Dawn penned: ‘This was a big night for me. Caroline showed up, as she always did. I keep waiting for it to feel easier. It doesn’t. 

‘I guess this is just a feeling that a lot of us have to live with now. Grief shouldn’t feel lonely when so many billions of people have felt it, but still it does.’

She added: ‘Maybe that’s because no one can replace what you lost, and everyone is someone different to everybody else.’

Reflecting on some of her friend’s favourite qualities, she said: ‘Caroline meant a lot to me. She meant a lot to a lot of people in a lot of different ways. Because she was special. That laugh. That humour. That loyalty. I miss it all.’

Dawn also speculated on how Caroline would have dealt with coronavirus isolation, and said: ‘To think she didn’t even know about any of what’s happened to the world. She’d still have worn her stick on nails in isolation, I bet. I miss you my love.’

Following her passing, Dawn was one of Caroline’s many friends to post a tribute to her on social media along with a selection of photographs.

Dawn thanked her ‘funny’ and ‘silly’ friend for all the memories and added that no dance floor will ‘ever be the same again’.
