Friends of Robin Williams are said to be in a fury after it was claimed that a British TV station is planning to recreate the star’s suicide in a new documentary about the star’s tragic death.

The forthcoming broadcast is said to be part of Channel 5′s series ‘Autopsy’ and according to the Daily Mirror, it will feature a look-a-like re-enacting the Oscar-winning actor’s death.

But the s*** has hit the fan over the plans, which have upset pals of the late Hollywood icon.

One family friend of the star told reporters: “With each passing day the pain for Robin’s family eases just a fraction but something as disturbing as this just takes them backwards.

“Why anyone would want to make such a programme is beyond comprehension … I hope people refuse to watch.”

Channel 5 has apparently confirmed that it is filming the documentary but refused to give details.
