Caroline Flack's mum was in tears at the inquest today as her death was ruled as suicide by coroner Mary Hassell.

As Hassell gave her verdict, weeping, mum Christine replied: "I totally agree. I think you have got it spot on.

"It's up to us if we want to take it any further but we don't. You've got it exactly right.''

The coroner told her: "I'm very very sorry for the loss of such a young life in such a needless way."

Delivering her verdict, the coroner said:

Today was the second day of the inquest into Caroline's death.

Caroline Flack's mum was in tears at the inquest today as her death was ruled as suicide by coroner Mary Hassell

"The key decision for me to make is whether Caroline took her own life.

"I have to be satisfied she acted in a way so as to cause her death, and secondly that she intended to cause her death.

"In Caroline’s case I am entirely satisfied she intended to cause her own death.

"She hanged herself. She had only one expectation – her own death.

"There’s no doubt in my mind at all."

The star's mum said the verdict was 'exactly right'

Hassell continued to say Caroline had suffered from "fluctuating mental ill health" which she had struggled with in the past.

The coroner added: "She'd had difficulties."

While some may Caroline had a 'charmed life' the coroner said the "more famous she got the more of some of her difficulties surfaced".

The coroner said there was 'no doubt' that Caroline's death was caused by suicide

She added: "When things went wrong for her she did not have any privacy of that.

``That was obviously distressing for her.''

The coroner said: "She now knew that she was going to be prosecuted for certain and she knew that she would face the media, the press, the publicity.

The incident involving Caroline and ex Lewis Burton was covered at the inquest

"It would all come down upon her.

"To me that's it in essence. That's what happened.''

Today was the second day of the inquest into Caroline's death.

Caroline was found hanged aged 40 at her home in Stoke Newington, north-east London, on February 15.

The inquest heard Caroline Flack's mum says she was 'disgusted' at police over the treatment of her daughter.

Her mum also said her daughter 'wasn't an abuser' in a tearful message.
