The documentary will feature tributes to Caroline from her family, friends and colleagues and will look beyond the headlines "to reveal the complex woman behind the public persona".

It will also explore the pressures that Caroline, who was known for hosting shows including Love Island and The Xtra Factor, faced from fame, the press and social media during 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," Channel 4 added.

Caroline tragically took her own life on February 15, 2020 at the age of 40, with her death being ruled as suicide by a coroner at an inquest.

A number of tributes were made to the late presenter on the anniversary of her death, with Love Island narrator Iain Stirling sharing photo of himself with Caroline and adding: "To my friend Caroline, thinking of you today. Miss you mate."

A number of Love Island stars also paid their respects, including Kady McDermott, Olivia Bowen and Laura Anderson.

Caroline Flack: Her Life and Death is coming soon to Channel 4.
