Love Island star Sophie Gradon's boyfriend has been found dead just three weeks after she passed away.

He was discovered several hours after posting a tribute to Gradon on Instagram.

A spokesperson told Th Sun: "At around 12.20pm today we received a report that a 25-year-old man had been found deceased at a property in Blyth".

Officials said there was no third party involvement suspected in the 25-year-old's death.

Gradon was laid to rest at St. George's Church in Jesmond, a suburb of Newcastle, England, in a private family service.

A family source told the United Kingdom publication, "We're absolutely gutted".

Sharing a picture of the order of service, he wrote: 'I love you with all my heart my attractive angel I'm absolutely heartbroken I can't stop crying and I can feel your spirit in my soul RIP Sophie Hannah Gradon'. "Everyday we spent together was so unbelievable I need them days back".

"Please keep in mind to be a little bit kinder every day to every person in your life".

"Aaron. I hope you have reunited with your love Sophie".

An inquest has been opened and adjourned into the death of the former Love Island contestant.

At the time, Aaron shared a moving tribute to his girlfriend on Instagram. "They are commenting on the way you look, the way you talk".

The brunette - who broke Love Island history in 2016 when she became part of the first same-sex couple on the show - went on to describe how despite receiving nice comments, she couldn't help but be drawn to the bad ones.

He continued, "My lovely angel, I'm absolutely heartbroken".

"Please be careful with how you treat people online and in real life, if it is really to do with trolls I hope those that contributed learn from this how damaging it really is".
