A new documentary focusing on the life and career of Caroline Flack is set to arrive on Channel 4 later this year.
Friends and family of the presenter will pay their respects to Flack as part of the tribute show, following her death in February this year.
The one-hour special will focus on the pressures faced by former Love Island presenter Flack during her career, as well as the impact social media and press coverage had upon her life.
The documentary was commissioned by Becky Cadman and Lee McMurray for Channel 4 Factual Entertainment, with BAFTA winner Charlie Russell set to direct.
An air date for the documentary has yet to be confirmed.
McMurray 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.’
Cadman 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.’
Flack passed away at the age of 40 in February this year. Following Flack’s death, there was an online campaign launched to encourage people to #BeKind and carefully consider what they post on social media.
Close friend Laura Whitmore recently spoke about being afforded the privacy of lockdown to grieve for Flack. Whitmore previously replaced her as host of Love Island last December.
