Caroline Flack: Her life and death
In this powerful film, Caroline’s mum Christine, her twin sister Jody and many of her closest friends and colleagues pay tribute to one of Britain’s biggest TV stars, telling the story of her life in order to try to understand what led to her death in February 2020.
Caroline Flack: Her Life and Death combines hitherto unseen footage, childhood home videos and intimate testimonies from her family and friends, who are still trying to come to terms with their loss.
Exploring the circumstances that led to her death, the film also charts Caroline’s rise to fame, from stage school to presenter of some of Britain’s biggest TV shows.
Olly Murs and Dermot O’Leary speak candidly about the pressures Caroline faced during her time on The X Factor, but it’s Caroline’s experience of heartbreak throughout her life that is the most revealing.
