Caroline Flack's family and friends will pay tribute to her in an upcoming documentary all about her life. Channel 4 have announced that the doc, which they originally began working with Caroline herself on, will now feature interviews from those closest to the Love Island star.

Channel 4 say the one-hour special, which does not yet have an air date, will look "beyond the headlines to reveal the 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."

Lee McMurray from Channel 4 said, "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."

Becky Cadman, also from Channel 4, added, "This film is about and for Caroline. A sister, daughter, friend and one of the most successful TV presenters in the country. 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."

Executive producer Dov Freedman said, "Caroline was a hugely talented star and we hope this film will honour the commitment we made to her, by telling her story frankly and honestly."
