Caroline Flack's mum Chris said she wanted her daughter's "little voice" to be heard.

Flack took her own life aged 40 at her flat in London on Saturday just three weeks before her trial after she was arrested and charged with assault by beating.

The former Love Island host pleaded not guilty in the first hearing and her boyfriend Lewis Burton always maintained she was innocent following their early-morning row.

In her first interview since her daughter's death, the mum lamented Caroline's twin sister Jody was unable to protect her from the "hurt of such injustice".

Chris released Caroline's bombshell statement where she insisted she wasn't a domestic abuser in an unseen Instagram post.

The mum gave her daughter her final say so her "little voice" could be heard in the wake of her tragic death which sent shockwaves through the showbiz circuit.

She told the Eastern Daily Press: "Carrie sent me this message at the end of January but was told not to post it by advisers but she so wanted to have her little voice heard.

"So many untruths were out there but this is how she felt and my family and I would like people to read her own words. Carrie was surrounded by love and friends but this was just too much for her."

Chris lamented her other daughter Jody was unable to protect Caroline from the "injustice" and the "hurt".

Caroline gave a searingly honest admission of her mental health struggles for more than 10 years while she was in the limelight.

She wrote: "I've been having some sort of emotional breakdown for a very long time.

"But I am NOT a domestic abuser. We had an argument and an accident happened. An accident. The blood that someone SOLD to a newspaper was MY blood and that was something very sad and very personal.

"The reason I am talking today is because my family can't take anymore. I've lost my job. My home. My ability to speak. And the truth has been taken out of my hands and used as entertainment."
