Channel 4 has just released the trailer for its upcoming documentary on Caroline Flack.
One year on from the tragic death of the much loved presenter, Caroline Flack: Her Life and Death will hear from those closest to Caroline, including her family and friends.
You can watch the trailer below:
Channel 4 explain: "We will hear from those closest to Caroline, delving beyond the headlines to reveal the complex woman behind the public persona, as well as exploring the pressures that fame, mental health, press and social media had on Caroline throughout her life.
"Never before seen footage, childhood home videos and interviews with her mother, Christine, and twin sister, Jody, are all brought together in what promises to be an emotional, intimate and candid documentary."
In the trailer, Caroline's friend, Olly Murs, can be seen in tears, explaining: "I just wish I could have told her not to do it, I never got the opportunity to do that."
Meanwhile another person explained: "If she walked into a room, it was like a light going on."
Commissioned by Becky Cadman and Lee McMurray, Channel 4 first announced they were working on a documentary back in November.
"This film is about and for Caroline. A sister, daughter, friend and one of the most successful TV presenters in the country," said Becky.
"She openly and honestly shared her struggles with fame and how it impacted her mental health. A rollercoaster life told through the memories of the people who knew her best, Caroline's family and friends, we hope this will be a fitting tribute to her."
A release date has not yet been confirmed, but the doc is expected to air soon.
Yesterday, 15th February, marked the one year anniversary since Caroline sadly passed away at the age of 40.
At the time of her death, the Love Island presenter was due to appear in court, charged with allegedly assaulting her ex boyfriend Lewis Burton - something both parties denied.
Lewis did not want to press charges but the trial was still going ahead. On 15th February last year, Caroline was found at her flat in London, with her death ruled as suicide.
