Olly Murs has revealed he hasn’t yet watched Caroline Flack’s documentary as he needs time to “process” it.

The Voice judge Olly, 36, took part in the Channel 4 documentary, Caroline Flack: Her Life and Death, to pay tribute to the late Love Island star following her tragic death last year.

Caroline was 40 when she took her own life in February 2020. A year on, a selection of Caroline’s close friends and family, including her twin sister Jody who revealed she found heartbreak “impossible”, opened up about the star.

The documentary revealed that she had struggled with suicidal thoughts and mental health in the past, which her family had supported her with.

Days after the documentary release, which left viewers in tears, Olly has revealed he is yet to have seen it – despite taking part in the doc.

He has told Mirror: “I haven’t actually watched it yet purely on the basis that I’m in the Voice this week and I want to just focus on that.

“I will watch it all next week on my own and I’ll process it all because it is so difficult to talk about it and it’s so difficult to even think that I’m talking about someone that I love a lot and she’s not here anymore.”

In the documentary, Olly discussed the pair’s time co-hosting The Xtra Factor and a series of The X Factor and the trolling they endured when they took over from Dermot O’Leary.

Olly also discussed how much he misses his friend and how he would have helped her if he would have known she was struggling.

Speaking about taking part in the programme, he said: “It was important to talk about it was important to – from what I’ve heard from the documentary and what her mum said to me – it’s important if someone is watching that documentary and it could help change someone’s life or change the way someone’s thinking in terms of suicide or in terms of them tweeting something nasty to someone.”

“If it could trigger that moment of thought, going: ‘Actually, I shouldn’t do that. That’s really bad’ or ‘I need to get help if I’m thinking of suicide’ and I think that for me is the powerful message behind that documentary and I’m so proud of Christine and the family.

“I love Caz so much. To talk about her life and our experiences and the fact she is not here any more is so, so difficult.

“I’m so proud of her mum, Christine, and the family. It was hard to be a part of it but I hope it helps change.”

Olly also explained how opening up about his own difficulties at a time in his life had helped him.

The singer explained: “The most important thing is to talk.

“I battled against talking about it for ages. I needed to see someone. It was a stranger and I just let everything out. It’s helped ever since.”
