Caroline Flack: Her Life and Death observed the pitfalls of fame and the pressures of tabloid papers and social media that the 40-year-old endured before her tragic suicide in February 2020.
The Channel 4 documentary - which came not long after the year anniversary of when the former Love Island presenter took her own life - saw Caroline's close family, friends and colleagues pay tribute to the star as they recalled happy memories and came to terms with their overwhelming grief.
While viewers found Caroline Flack: Her Life and Death an incredibly difficult show to watch, the one-off programme has been widely well-received, with many on Twitter praising those involved with making the programme for being so open about mental health.
"The Caroline Flack was absolutely devastating. Can't imagine pain of her family," wrote one heart-broken viewer.
"Caroline Flack's family were unbelievably brave in that documentary," said a second. "The world is a cruel place at times."
"Big love to the family of Caroline Flack," added a third. "What an amazing documentary. We all need to pause, think and be kind."
A fourth said: "Feel incredibly sad and angry watching the documentary about Caroline Flack. Watching her family and friends talk about what she went through. My heart breaks for them."
"Caroline Flack's family and friends talking about her life so honestly. Switching between laughter and tears with obvious love," a fifth added, with another said: "The most beautiful, powerful and tragic documentary about the loss of Caroline Flack on Channel 4 tonight. The courage of her family and friends to speak out about mental health and the joy the girl they call Carrie brought to them."
Caroline's mother Christine said she wanted to make the documentary to show viewers what the television personality was really like.
"She was a fun loving person but she had this other side that she suffered with depression and downtimes and just bad times and she had them for a long while," she said in an exclusive interview with Tyla.
"She wasn't an awful girl. She wasn't horrible. She wasn't perfect but she had this 'thing' - and people did love her."
Caroline Flack: Her Life And Death is available to watch on All 4.
