Police and paramedics tried to save the life of Norfolk television presenter Caroline Flack at her home in London, an inquest has heard.
The inquest into the death of Miss Flack, 40, opened at Poplar Coroner's Court in east London on Wednesday.
Coroner's officer Sandra Polson said police were driving through Northwold Road, Stoke Newington, London, on Saturday February 15 when they were flagged down and went to Miss Flack's rented home.
She said Miss Flack was "found lying on her back, she had apparently been found hanging".
Police attempted resuscitation, which was then continued by paramedics, but she was pronounced dead at the scene.

The hearing, which lasted four minutes, was adjourned until August 5.
No members of Miss Flack's family were present at the inquest.
A statement from Francis Ridley, director of Money Talent Management which counted Miss Flack among its clients, said: "Caroline loved Love Island. It was her show.
"She lived it. And I'm sure she hoped that one day she would be allowed to return to it.
"Sadly, not only will this never happen now, but in the last few weeks of her life the world of television ceased to become a priority for her as she battled to just see a way through to getting her life back."
