What will Caroline Flack’s mum and twin sister say?

In the documentary, Caroline’s mum Christine and twin Jody have admitted they always feared she would take her own life.

According to the Daily Mail, Christine says: “She had a long relationship when she was in Cambridge but that ended and then we got a call, she’d taken some pills, she spent time in hospital and then you could tell it wasn’t right, her reaction wasn’t right.

“Yeah, she didn’t handle heartbreak well.”

Each serious boyfriend, she sort of took a lot of tablets, drank a lot, and ended up in an A&E situation a lot of times

Jody adds: “It feels so weird talking about it because I know it’s something she never wanted anybody to know about.

“Each serious boyfriend, she sort of took a lot of tablets, drank a lot, and ended up in an A&E situation a lot of times. She really didn’t think she could cope with that feeling so it was her trying to control it.”
