Speaking about her first heartbreak, Jody and Christine explained she met a guy from a funfair, but Caroline got “super super upset” when things didn’t work out.

Jody said: “She was heartbroken. She ran away from home. She ran away and we didn’t know where she was and, I think, she’d gone to his house and was banging on his door.

“She really, really, really, really struggled emotionally. She was very, very depressed and that pattern carried on forever. She really did find heartbreak impossible.”

Caroline’s mother Christine also opened up on another relationship the TV star had when she attended drama school in Cambridge.


Christine said: “She had a long relationship when she was in Cambridge but that ended. And then we got a call, that she'd taken some pills and she spent time in hospital and then you could tell, you know, it wasn't right, her reaction wasn't right.

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

Meanwhile, Jody admitted it felt “so weird” talking about the TV star’s mental health struggles and difficulties with heartbreak because “it’s something she never wanted anyone to know about”.

Jody added: “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.

“And she really didn’t think she could cope with that feeling and so she… I think that was her trying to control it.”

Caroline’s sister Jody and mother Christine appear in the Channel 4 documentary alongside her friends including Olly Murs and Dermot O’Leary to discuss her life, which will air on Channel 4 on Friday 17 March.

Ahead of the documentary’s release Caroline’s family also released a number of photos from Caroline’s childhood to pay tribute to her.

One included showing her as a fresh-faced Caroline smiling widely as she sits side on to the camera, for a school snap in taken the 1990s.
