"She was always scared she’d be ridiculed, she was terrified to admit her mental health struggles.
"She was fascinated by the subject of suicide – I was prepared that it could happen."
Caroline's close friend Dermot O'Leary added that she was "addicted’ [to fame] but couldn’t cope with it".
And Caroline's mother Christine claimed Caroline "regularly changed doctors so nobody would know the full extent of her problems".
She went on to implore Instagram and Twitter to tackle online trolling.
She said: "I don’t think they protect anyone – you can’t get away from it, it follows you on your phone. They are making money from it and need to step up."
