Caitlyn Jenner has a lot on her mind, as many of us can imagine, and in a brand new sneak peak from her eight part docuseries I Am Cait, the former Olympic athlete explains how she simply wants to be a good role model for the trans community and do her part in helping anyone who needs it.

Stripping back the makeup and self-filming in her bed, she admits: "I feel bad that these [people] - especially young people - are going through such a difficult time in their life. We don't want people dying over this. We don't want people murdered over this stuff. What a responsibility I have towards this community.

"Am I going to do everything right? Am I going to say the right things? Do I project the right image? My mind's just spinning with thoughts. I just hope I get it right. I hope I get it right."

Following the announcement to the world that she is transgender, Caitlyn has had the opportunity to chat to various members of the trans community who have thanked her for being an inspiration.

Speaking in Vanity Fair's July issue, she explained: "Since the Diane Sawyer piece, every day... it's exciting to go to the mailbox... I get letters every day from all of these people from all over the world. I've gotten a lot from trans women, and telling their story and telling how excited they were to see the Diane piece."

In one particular letter, a transgender woman in New York left her phone number - so Caitlyn rang her up.

"I think she was very surprised I called." said the 65-year-old, who explained they'd chatted for "close to 45 minutes".

"I have a platform that's so large. 'How can I use that to make this better?' And the only way I could do that is to talk to people."

I Am Cait premieres Sunday 2nd August at 9pm, only on E!
