Mike Thalassitis, a former contestant on the British reality dating show Love Island, has died, according to multiple reports.
This evening the star's management confirmed the 26-year-old died today.
Love Island fans are reeling from the awful news that one of its stars from the 2017 run of the series has died.
After his time on Love Island in 2017, Thalassitis continued his career on reality TV on "Celebs Go Dating" the following year.
The Only Way Is Essex star Ferne McCann posted: "So so so so sad".
"Mike you are going to be sorely sorely missed".
Fenton tweeted: "I'm lost for words". Mike, you were love by all the Love island family. I just can't believe this!
Montana Brown, who also appeared 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".
He also appeared in E4 reality dating series Celebs Go Dating previous year.
He was originally kicked off the show after getting involved in a love triangle but a public vote saw him return to the villa. My heart and soul and love goes out to his friends & family. I send my love and condolences to all of his friends and family at this terrible time. I won't forget that.it's so sad.you will be missed.

And Bowen wrote: "I can't get my head round this RIP brother".
