THE boyfriend of former Love Island star, Sophie Gradon, has died.

Aaron Armstrong (25) was found dead at home in Blyth on Tuesday.

A Northumbria Police spokesman said: "At around 12.20pm on Tuesday police received a report from the ambulance service that a 25-year-old man had been found deceased at a 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."
