Sources claim the reality star was found dead in Essex yesterday.

It's uncertain what caused Mike Thalassitis's death at the tender age of 26 but it's raised questions around the welfare of Love Island stars following the show.

He had also been preparing to open a restaurant in his Essex hometown.

Love Island fans are reeling from the terrible news that one of its stars from the 2017 run of the series has died.

Dom revealed: "You get a psychological evaluation before and after you go on the show but hands down once you are done on the show you don't get any support unless you're number one".

Fellow Love Island contestant Chris Hughes tweeted a broken heart. His grandmother, whom Thalassitis was living with full-time to take care of, also died recently.

The reality star was a former League One soccer player and last played for Margate in 2017.

He also appeared on the reality show Celebs Go Dating in 2018.
