They later phoned for an ambulance an hour later when help didn’t show.

During today’s inquest into the presenter’s death at Poplar Coroner’s Court, Ms Grosberg explained Caroline later told the paramedics she had a “headache” soon after they arrived.

Caroline Flack was ‘scared about police’

She said: “We were obviously very scared about getting the police involved.

“It was agreed she wasn’t going (to hospital) and I got very angry and shouted, I said this was ridiculous.

“They (paramedics) said: ‘She doesn’t want to go… you are going to have to do some baby sitting.'”

Caroline was apparently “upset” that medics were involved.

Paramedic Tony Rumore said: “We asked Caroline if her intention was to harm or kill herself, she said it was merely an attempt to sleep and escape from the stresses she was under.

“At that point, Caroline said she adamantly would not be going to hospital and wanted to stay at home.”

According to Ms Teasdale, the presenter appeared upset over them contacting emergency services for fear the incident may have gone public.

Ms Teasdale told the inquest: “Caroline spoke to her family about coming the next day because she wanted us to leave, she was quite angry with us. She didn’t want us there.

“We were always nervous to call the police because she didn’t trust the police, and she didn’t want anything to come out to the public which looked like she was having a breakdown.”
