Family and friends will pay tribute to Caroline Flack in new documentary to air on Channel 4.
The hour-long documentary will hear from those closest to Caroline “to reveal the woman behind the public persona,” as well as exploring pressures that Caroline had on her throughout her life.
Commissioned by Becky Cadman and Lee McMurray for Channel 4 Factual Entertainment is is described by Channel 4 as “an emotional, intimate and candid documentary celebrating Caroline’s life and legacy.”
Lee 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.”
