THE PARTNER OF a former Love Island participant who died by suicide last month has also been found dead.

The body of Aaron Armstrong (25) was discovered at a house in the Blyth area of Northumberland, England, yesterday.

He was the partner of Sophie Gradon who was found dead three weeks ago.

Yesterday police confirmed they were investigating the discovery of a body in the Blyth area.

“At around 12.20pm on July 10 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,” a Northumbria Police spokesman said.

Sophie Gradon’s funeral had taken place just five days previously to the discovery of Armstrong’s body.
