The inquest into the death of Love Island star Caroline Flack is due to resume today.
The 40-year-old presenter was found dead at her home in north-east London, on February 15 2020.
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 her presenting duties.
Her family had increased concerns about her mental state as the trial loomed, while Mr Burton also pleaded to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) to drop the case.
Caroline's inquest was opened and adjourned during a four-minute hearing in Poplar, east London, on February 19 when the coroner heard the celebrity was found "lying on her back".
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, who referenced one of Flack's social media posts from December in which she urged people to "be kind".
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 said her daughter's legal team and psychologist warned about the potential for the former Strictly champion to kill herself.
Mrs Flack said: "The CPS were fully aware of these matters and the risk when they decided to continue the prosecution."
She 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".
