Love Island star Michael Thalassitis found dead aged 26

Thalassitis, who appeared on the show in 2017, was a former footballer who had played for clubs including St Albans and Chelmsford.

Several reality TV stars posted tributes to Thalassitis after news of his death was reported.

He dated The Only Way Is Essex star Megan McKenna before splitting up a year ago, and had appeared on the series Celebs Go Dating in 2018. Mike, you were loved by all of the Love island family. I can't put into words how much this hurts and doesn't feel real. "My thoughts go out to all of Mikes friends and family".

Mike Thalassitis was found dead near his Essex home.

"I can honestly say, Mike was thoughtful, caring and so fiercely loyal to his friends and family and really would do anything for them". This is horrendous. I'm in shock.

Thalassitis had a successful sports career starting in 2011 before appearing on Love Island in 2017 and retiring from soccer that year. I just can't believe this!

"My boy from the villa and one of my best mates from the show coming out".

A cause of death has not been released.

She said: "This should be a massive wake up call. Once again thank you so much and let's try to give dan the best send off him and his family deserve". My heart and soul and love goes out to his friends and family.

"Everyone connected with Ebbsfleet United is shocked and saddened to learn of the death of our former striker Michael Thalassitis", the statement reads.

James Jordan posted: "My heart goes out to his family and friends at this hard time".

Malin Andersson, who lost her baby daughter Consy at four-weeks old after she was born seven weeks premature, pointed to her own personal struggles, adding: "You get a psychological evaluation before and after you go on the show but hands down once you are done on the show you don't get any support unless you're number one". He split from The Only Way Is Essex star Megan McKenna late a year ago.
