What is Caroline Flack: Her Life and Death documentary about?

The film’s commissioning editor Lee McMurray announced the documentary last year, saying: “‘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.”

The documentary focuses on the battles Caroline faced of living her life under constant scrutiny.

The trailer’s narrator describes it as: “Her story, told by those who knew her best.”
