Love Island Sophie Gradon left over Tom Powell

"The world we live in behind social media", she wrote.

Love Island continues on ITV2 at 9pm.

One of the most memorable moments of her time with Tom in the house was when she nearly moved the Welshman to tears with her touching and fiery speech defending fellow beauty queen Zara Holland - who was stripped of her title during a pageant task.

During her time on the show, Sophie also dated Tom Powell, and the couple went on to have a short-lived relationship after leaving the villa.

Co-star Olivia Buckland wrote on Twitter: "Awful bad news this morning".

Authorities arrived at a home in Medburn, Ponteland, just before 8:30 PM and found the 32-year-old woman dead, Northumbria police said, via Sky News' report. I can not work out what to say.

'The world has failed you lovely.

The 32 year old was confirmed dead by police earlier in the day, who claimed her passing was not being deemed suspicious.

Fellow "Love Island" contestant Katie Salmon, who coupled up with Sophie on the show, shared this heartbreaking message, alluding to suicide. "A report will now be prepared for the coroner".

"I'm heartbroken for you Soph to have felt this pain".

"You helped us through so much. She was one in a million and I will always remember that speech she did on love island about women and empowering one another".

"My love and prayers to her family and friends and all others impacted".

Nathan Henry tweeted: "Rest in peace you lovely little angel, the heavens are blessed with a handsome smile". The organisers of the Miss Great Britain competition said that they were "shocked beyond belief" at the news of Gradon's passing.

He wrote on Facebook: "I will never forget that smile".
