AN inquest into the death of a former reality TV star has been delayed.

Former Love Island star Sophie Gradon (32), from Ponteland, was found dead in June last year.

The inquest was scheduled for Thursday, March 21 but has been postponed after new information was passed on to her family.

A statement from Northumberland Coroners Court, read: "It has been necessary to cancel the hearing date for the inquest dealing with the death of Sophie Gradon.

"Sophie's parents have requested further time to consider a report which was only recently received."

Northumbria Police said there were not believed to be any suspicious circumstances surrounding her death.
