Oh no, this is too sad! Nearly three weeks following Love Island star Sophie Gradon’s untimely passing at the age of only 32, we have learned that her mourning significant other Aaron Armstrong has followed her into the afterlife.
One Northumbria Police spokesperson told E! News that they received an ambulance service report that said the 25-year-old man was found dead at his property on Furnace Road in Bebside, Blyth.
‘There is not believed to be any third party involvement, and a report will now be prepared for the coroner,’ the police shared.
Not too long after the tragic news surfaced, fellow cast members of Love Island took to social media to show their reactions.
Former star of the show Katie Salmon tweeted: ‘Aaron. I hope you have reunited with your love Sophie. And I truly hope you fly high together. Thinking of his family and friends.’
‘So sad to now hear about Aaron’s passing. May you both rest in paradise,’ Rykard Jenkins also wrote.
As fans know already, Sophie was found dead on June 20.
It soon became clear that her boyfriend was suffering a lot after losing her.
‘I will never forget that smile. I love you so much, baby. You’re my world forever ever and always,’ he wrote on Facebook.
But that was not the last time he mentioned Sophie online.
Earlier this month, after she was laid to rest on July 5 in a private family ceremony, Aaron also shared just how much he missed her.
‘So I get into bed, and all I can smell is Sophie on her side of the bed. I love you so much Sophie I will keep fighting for you,’ Aaron wrote.
Our thoughts go out to the pained families left behind. Rest in Peace Aaron and Sophie.
