The inquest into the death of tragic television presenter Caroline Flack is due to resume today.

The 40-year-old former Love Island and X Factor star, who was born in Enfield, was found hanged at her home in Stoke Newington, north-east London, on February 15.

She had been due to stand trial for assaulting her boyfriend, former tennis player and model Lewis Burton, in December.

She immediately stepped back from presenting duties.

Flack’s family had increased concerns about her mental state as the trial loomed, while Mr Burton also pleaded with the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) to drop the case.

Flack’s inquest was opened and adjourned during a four-minute hearing in Poplar, east London, on February 19.

She was declared dead at the scene and her body was identified by her twin sister, Jody Flack.

A family lawyer previously said the television personality died by suicide.

Her death prompted an outpouring of sorrow from celebrity friends, colleagues and fans.

Flack’s management team criticised the CPS for conducting a “show trial” which prompted a review into her death.

However, the CPS found the case was handled “appropriately”.

Flack’s mother Chris described an allegation that her daughter hit Mr Burton over the head with a lamp as “false”.

She also said the claim was denied by both Mr Burton and Flack and “was completely inconsistent with the injury that Mr Burton sustained”.

Flack’s family also posthumously shared a social media post the troubled star had written but was persuaded by advisers not to publish before her death in which she disclosed having an “emotional breakdown”.
