Former Love Island star Sophie Gradon’s sudden death is not being treated as suspicious, police have confirmed.
The 32-year-old reality star’s body was found at an address in Northumberland on Wednesday evening, with police revealing she had already passed away by the time they arrived.
In a statement, Northumbria Police confirmed: "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."
RIP Sophie Gradon
Her boyfriend Aaron Armstrong confirmed the tragic news on Facebook, writing, "I will never forget that smile. I love you so so much baby, you’re my world forever and always."
And Geordie Shore star Holly Hagan revealed she had been chatting to the former Miss Newcastle just the day before.
"You were only helping me battle the Twitter trolls yesterday. Rest in peace beautiful," she tweeted.
Her co-star Nathan Henry added: "Rest in peace you beautiful little angel, the heavens are blessed with a beautiful smile. RIP."
And this year’s dumped Islander Hayley Hughes shared her disbelief, writing, "I’m lost for words right now! RIP Sophie Gradon. Such an amazing and beautiful girl."
Sophie – who starred in the 2016 series – had been active on social media in the hours before her death.
On Wednesday day she shared an Instagram post about a new underwear line she was loving.
"Have just released all of these beautiful new bralettes and underwear. Seriously unlike anything I’ve ever seen on Insta," she captioned a shot of herself modelling the lingerie.
"You need to check them out. I couldn’t get over how comfy and soft they are."
And she last tweeted on Tuesday, when she shut down viewer who defended love rat and fellow Geordie Adam Collard.
"Don’t watch the show anymore but can’t help but notice the stick Adam is getting. Poor fella. With great playboy, comes great responsibility," wrote one viewer, to which she replied, ‘Nah fam’, with a laughing emoji.
Sophie posted about her boyfriend on Twitter just two days ago, calling him the love of her life.
Sharing a video of him playing with his pet dog, she wrote: "When the love of your life loves his dogs like this you know he’s the one. She’s cuddling him right back … & those arms."
She made history on Love Island as one half of the show’s first same-sex couple after she coupled up with Katie Salmon.
Before that, she’d been coupled up with barman Tom Powell.
And her Love Island co-star Olivia Buckland paid an emotional tribute to the ‘intricate, creative, intelligent soul."
"Awful awful news this morning. I am gutted. I am so sorry the world failed you. You were such an intricate, creative, intelligent soul. Words fail me," she wrote.
"You helped us through so much. Your smile was one in a million. The world failed. I send all my love and my thoughts to you today.
"To your family and your loved ones. I cannot work out what to say. RIP you beautiful beautiful woman. I’m so lucky to have met you. #stayshapey."
