Caroline Flack's twin sister would "beg" her to quit showbiz, a new documentary about the TV star's life is set to reveal.
The Love Island presenter, who grew up in Norfolk, took her own life at the age of 40 on February 15, 2020.
A forthcoming Channel 4 programme, 'Caroline Flack: Her Life And Death', is to be screened on Wednesday, March 17.
Previews have promised to "delve beyond the headlines to reveal the complex woman behind the public persona", and say it will feature never-before-seen footage and childhood home videos.
The documentary also includes interviews with her twin sister, Jody, who admitted she was desperate for Miss Flack to have an "easy life" away from the public eye.
"‘I would beg her to change jobs and leave showbiz but she never would," she says, as reported by Mail Online.
"Life would have been easier but she wasn’t built for an easy life.

"She was always scared she’d be ridiculed; she was terrified to admit her mental health struggles."
The show will also feature tributes from a number of friends, including fellow television presenter Dermot O'Leary and singer Olly Murs.

Meanwhile her mother, Christine, speaks of how Miss Flack "found heartbreak impossible", and would regularly change doctors "so nobody would know the full extent of her problems".
Mrs Flack, who spoke candidly with this newspaper in the days following her daughter's death, also slams Lorraine Kelly and Graham Norton for joking about her losing jobs.
Last week, the family released previously unseen photos of Miss Flack ahead of the new programme's broadcast.
One shows the twin sisters wearing matching outfits as they pose in a muddy Norfolk field as girls.
Miss Flack was born in Enfield, north London, but spent much of her youth living in Norfolk, first in Thetford and then in nearby East Wretham.
