Thalassitis, who was of Cypriot descent, earned the nickname "Muggy Mike" after partnering with fellow islander Chris Hughes's girlfriend Olivia Attwood when he appeared in the 2017 series.

His body was found in a north London park on Saturday morning.

The spokesman added: "Officers and the London Ambulance Service attended and found a man, aged in his 20s, deceased". His death is not being treated as suspicious. "Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with Mike's family and friends at this very said time".

They said they were in the process of informing the man's next of kin and that a file would be prepared for the coroner.

However, Love Island have claimed they take aftercare of Islanders "very seriously" and ensure contributors have access to psychological support "before during and after appearing on the show".

Police confirmed Mike was found "hanged" in a forest near his home, just days after his Nana had passed away.

He previously had success as a footballer, playing for clubs including Stevenage and Chelmsford.
