“At this early stage, the death is not being treated as suspicious.

“Police are in the process of informing the man’s next of kin. A file will be prepared for the coroner.”

The cause of death will be confirmed by the coroner at a later date.

Following the tragic news, fellow Love Island stars have urged the show to provide more support to its cast.

Malin Andersson, from Love Island 2016, tweeted: “I got flowers from the producers when my daughter died. No f*****g phone call. No support, or help.

“Enough is enough. Nothing happened when my mum died. Nothing when Sophie died. Change needs to happen.”

Earlier today, Love Island tweeted: “Everyone at ITV2 and Love Island are shocked and saddened by the terrible news about Mike.

“Our thoughts and condolences are with his family and friends.”

Last year, Sophie Gradon from Love Island 2016 was found dead, leading to an outpouring of tributes from fans and co-stars.

Mike’s own co-stars have spoken out in his memory, urging fans to forget the nickname “Muggy Mike” that was given to him during the show.

Chris Hughes, who went head-to-head with Mike for Olivia Attwood’s attention, tweeted: “His name wasn’t Muggy Mike. Please stop brandishing that.

“His name was Mike Thalassitis, and every inch of my heart goes out to his family and friends. A good guy, taken far, far too soon.”
