Caroline Flack's family release never-seen-before photos of star as a teen ahead of documentary about her life

CAROLINE Flack's family has released never-seen-before pictures of the late star ahead of the release of a documentary about her life and death.

Two photographs of the TV presenter show her with her trademark big smile as a teen.

In one professional shot, Caroline looks bright-eyed in a school uniform as she poses for the camera.

Another shows her in front of a stage curtain wearing jogging bottoms and a crop top and with her hair in bunches.

Going further back in time, Caroline stands beside her twin sister Jody in a muddy Norfolk field.

She's wrapped up in a scarf and a cream coat as she frowns on what appears to be a cold day.

The pair are once again in matching coats outdoors for another childhood snap by a ploughed field.

While a fourth sees the twins on a summery woodland walk with mum Christine as she wraps her arms around her girls.

Caroline died at her north London home a year ago aged 40.

Channel 4's Caroline Flack: Her Life And Death shows the much-loved star sobbing in heartbreaking footage.

She is heard saying: "The only person I ever hurt is myself."

Caroline is also shown laughing and joking and hanging out with her family in home video footage dating back to her childhood in the early 80s.

The documentary also features some of her closest friends, including singer and former X Factor co-host Olly Murs, breaking down in tears.

The 36-year-old sobs: "I just wish I had told her not to do it. I never got the opportunity to do that."

Another close friend Dermot O'Leary, who also worked with her on The X Factor, says: "Those demons can start to play with you."

The film, which was made with the co-operation of her family, also features her mum Christine.

She tells film-makers: "She was my little girl. It doesn't actually seem real."

You’re Not Alone

EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.

It doesn't discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.

It's the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.

And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.

Yet it's rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.

That is why The Sun launched the You're Not Alone campaign.

The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.

Let's all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others… You're Not Alone.
