Police say there are "no suspicious circumstances" surrounding the reality TV starlet's sudden death at her home in North East England, which was confirmed in a social media post by her boyfriend.

Love Island star Sophie Gradon was found dead at the age of 32, with hundreds paying tribute to the former Miss Great Britain.

Her boyfriend Aaron Armstrong broke the news on Facebook today, writing: "I will never forget that smile".

A Northumbria Police spokesperson told 9Honey in a statement: "At about 8.27pm yesterday (June 20) police attended a property in Medburn, Ponteland, where sadly a 32-year-old woman was found deceased".

Tributes have been pouring in for Sophie on social media, with many of her fellow Love Island stars sharing their devastation. She was part of the show's first-ever same-sex couple. "I'm sending all my love, I truly am, to everyone who had the pleasure of ever being in her company". She's cuddling him right back.
