Caroline Flack documentary airing on Channel 4 tonight

A new documentary about presenter Caroline Flack, who sadly took her life in February last year, will air this evening on Channel 4, featuring interviews with her family, friends and former colleagues.

Caroline Flack: Her Life and Death bills itself as a ‘tribute to one of Britain’s biggest TV stars’, telling the story of Flack’s life and career – along with the impact that fame, mental health issues, press and social media had on her.

The hour-long documentary includes interviews from those closest to Flack, such as her mother Christine and twin sister Jody, along with celebrity friends like Olly Murs and Dermot O’Leary.

Her family has also contributed childhood home videos and photographs.

At the inquest into her death, held in London in August last year, coroner Mary Hassell found Miss Flack took her life after learning she would be prosecuted for allegedly assaulting her then-boyfriend and was fearing publicity around it.

Miss Flack’s mother this week said she was nervous about how the documentary would be received.

Mrs Flack said: “We originally wanted it to be a celebration of Carrie’s life, but when we started filming it soon became clear there were other important things that need to be said,” she said.

“You never know if you have done the right thing but I really think she would be pleased that we have not just sat down and let things happen – we have tried to get the truth out there for her.”
