Shane Warne's daughter Brooke has continued her attack on Channel 9 over an unauthorised mini-series about her father's life, revealing she has suffered from mental health issues as a result of the furore.

Warne's death from a heart attack in March sent shockwaves around the world, with his family still coming to grips with the tragic loss.

However their grief has been made even worse by Channel 9's plans to dramatise their father's life in a two-part mini-series set to air in 2023.

Friends and family of Warne are reportedly furious with Channel 9 that the two-part mini-series will go ahead, with production of the telemovie commencing not long after his death.

Speaking to the Herald Sun this week, Brooke Warne said she has struggled with mental health issues as a result of the controversy.

“With the extra media scrutiny created by dad’s passing I need to stay mindful to deal with the attention,” she said.

“Especially with the negative aspect, such as the total disrespect shown by Channel 9 in creating a biopic about dad so soon after he passed.”

Brooke had previously blasted Channel 9's decision as "beyond disrespectful".

In a story posted to Instagram last month, the 25-year-old wrote: "Do any of you have any respect for Dad?

"Or his family who did so much for Channel (Nine) and now you want to dramatise his life and our families life 6 months after he has passed away? You are beyond disrespectful."

Warne's other daughter Summer, 20, also criticised the series, describing Channel 9's plans as "disappointing".

"Only six months after his passing and your (sic) already trying to make money off of this?" she said in an Instagram story of her own.

"Can you just let my dad rest in peace, since his (sic) not here to defend himself."

Channel 9 under fire over Shane Warne mini-series

The Nine Network says the mini-series, called 'Warnie', will screen over two nights in 2023.

It has described the show as a fitting tribute to one of the greatest Australians of all time and a must-see drama event of next year.

Casting details are yet to be announced. Screentime will produce the mini-series for the Nine Network in association with VicScreen.

Warne's long-time manager James Erskine has previously spoken out against plans to dramatise the cricketer's life, telling News Corp this year he would write to chairman Peter Costello about the matter.

“I will be writing to Peter Costello because he is their chairman and saying, please explain," Erskine said.

“Why would Nine even go there? It’s a disgrace and I will certainly be making my voice heard.”

The former cricketer died on the Thai resort island of Koh Samui on March 4, with a televised state memorial held at the MCG in April.

He is survived by his daughters Brooke and Summer and their brother Jackson.

Brooke also posted on Instagram last month on what would have been her dad's 53rd birthday.

"Today will always be Your day," Brooke wrote, while Summer said she would do anything to see his big smile one last time.

"Thank you for the 20 years of memories we shared together. I will cherish them always," Summer posted.
