The boyfriend of Love Island star Sophie Gradon has been found dead days after her funeral.

The body of Aaron Armstrong, 25, was discovered in Blyth, Northumberland this afternoon.

A Northumbria Police spokesman told Sky News: At around 12.20pm on 10 July, police received a report from the ambulance service that a 25-year-old man had been found deceased at a property on Furnace Road in Bebside, Blyth.

There is not believed to be any third party involvement and a report will now be prepared for the coroner.

In an emotional tribute to Gradon a day before his death, Armstrong said not a minute goes by with out your gorgeous smile being a picture in my mind.

Reality TV personality Gradon died on 20 June at the age of 32.

Police said there were not believed to be any suspicious circumstances surrounding her death.

In a Facebook post at the time, Armstrong said he was absolutely devastated.

Posting a picture of the pair together, he wrote: I will never forget that smile I love you so so much baby your my world forever ever and always.

Armstrong along with Gradon’s co-stars from the 2016 series of Love Island were among the mourners at her funeral last Thursday.

Zara Holland, who also appeared on the ITV2 dating show, posted an emotional tribute on Instagram, saying it was a beautiful private service.

Gradon, from Newcastle, was one half of Love Island’s first same-sex couple and had been crowned Miss Great Britain in 2009.

She and Armstrong had recently returned from a holiday in the resort town of Antibes near Cannes and Nice in southern France after celebrating his birthday.

The day before she died, Gradon posted a video on social media of her boyfriend dancing with a dog, describing her other half as the love of her life and the one.

Just days earlier she had paid tribute to nightclub boss Paul Burns, who had died at the aged of 37.
