The first trailer for 'Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds' has been released – and it packs an emotional punch. 

The HBO documentary follows the late Hollywood stars and provides an insight into their relationship. 'Mother and I live next door to each other... I'm my mum's best friend,' says Fisher in the trailer.

The film focusses on the close bond between mother and daughter, as well as their struggles with mental illness and age.

'I went too fast. I was too much,' says Fisher, who also admits to being concerned about leaving to rehearse for 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' because her mother wasn't feeling very well at the time. 

HBO has brought forward the premiere date for the doc following the deaths of both Fisher and Reynolds last week. Fisher, aged 60, passed away on December 27 after suffering a cardiac arrest on a plane from London to Los Angeles, with her mother dying the following day, aged 84.  

'Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds' will air on Sky Atlantic in the UK, airing on January 10 at 9pm.
