Channel 4 will show a new documentary about Caroline Flack who took her own life just over a year ago later in the month.

Caroline Flack took her own life on February 15, 2020.

The film will trace the presenter’s life back to her days at stage school leading up to a successful TV career.

 Caroline Flack: Her Life and Death we see celebrities such as Olly Murs and Dermot O’ Leary remembering their late friend alongside her friends and family.

It also includes family films of her childhood which have never been broadcast as well as interviews with her mother, Christine and twin sister, Jody.

The programme aims "to reveal the complex woman behind the public persona" and reveal the pressure Flack was under from the media and social media when she was in the public eye hosting the popular TV shows Love Island and The Xtra Factor.

In a press release Channel 4 says the Her Life and Death will show: "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."

Film commissioner editor Lee McMurray told Radio Times: “After working closely with Caroline throughout 2019, we agreed to make a film with her that would tell her story and reveal what it’s like to live in the glare of such intense scrutiny.

“Sadly, that film will never be made. We hope this project will be a testament to Caroline’s character, work and legacy, and we’re deeply grateful to her family and friends for their involvement.”

Caroline Flack: Her Life and Death is on Channel 4, Wednesday 17 March at 9pm and available afterwards on All 4.
