Very shocking and sad news this morning as it has emerged that 'Love Island' star Sophie Gradon has died aged 32-years-old.
Sophie appeared in the 2016 series of the show alongside Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen.
Gradon's boyfriend Aaron Armstrong announced the news on his Facebook page today saying: "I will never forget that smile I love you so so much baby your my world forever ever and always."
A Northumbria Police spokesperson said: "At about 8.27pm yesterday (June 20) police attended a property in Medburn, Ponteland, where sadly a 32-year-old woman was found deceased.
"There are not believed to be any suspicious circumstances surrounding her death. A report will now be prepared for the coroner."
