Details about Sophie Gradon death

She died at her parents’ house in Medburn, Ponteland. Her parents were really upset about the news, so they haven’t commented on it yet.

Gradon was tweeting before the death about the love for her boyfriend.

Her boyfriend, Aaron Armstrong, was devasted by the death and posted an emotional tribute to the star this morning, saying: “I will never forget that smile. I love you so much baby your (sic) my world forever and always”.

Contestant on Love Island 

The model appeared on the 2016 series of Love Island.  She became one half of the first bisexual couple on the show and was famous for having sex with a male co-star in a wardrobe.

It was her last post on Instagram:

 First same-sex pairing in Love Island 

Gradon began coupling up with glamour model Katie Salmon and, thus, becoming Love Island’s first same-sex pairing. Later on, Gradon admitted she ‘faked it with Katie Salmon’ to win.

“Tom might have seen my date with Katie and not realised I was just going along with it – I need to tell him there was nothing in it.

“She’s over-exaggerating when she said I kissed her. It was nothing, just a peck on the lips.”

Depression and anxiety 

She was writing about her condition months before her death: “Feel so guilty when my anxiety takes over, for not wanting to see or speak to anyone. Some days I get so overwhelmed I just want to nap!”

Friends told The Sun last night: ‘She had suffered from depression and anxiety and there was talk of financial issues which obviously adds to the worry she was enduring. Her friends thought she was in a great place as she was madly in love with her boyfriend and life was good. However a good friend died and it affected her very badly.’
