Reality TV star Mike Thalassitis has been found dead.
The Love Island and former football star was reportedly found dead in Essex on Friday. He died at the age of 26.
Celebrities have since taken to social media to pay their last respect with The Only Way Is Essex star Ferne McCann being one of them.
She wrote: “So so so so sad. Mike you absolute gent. I have no words.”
“My heart and soul and love goes out to his friends & family. Too young. RIP.”
Montana Brown, a co-star on Love Island in 2017, told the BBC: “Mike was so misunderstood – on television he was known as playing the ladies and everyone had this perception that he was this classic lad that didn’t have feelings.
“I can honestly say, Mike was thoughtful, caring, and so fiercely loyal to his friends and family and really would do anything for them.
“I am absolutely in shock of the news. In fact I don’t even quite believe it yet as I spoke to him yesterday.”

May his soul rest in peace.
